I didn't know whether to post this in saltwater or freshwater... My tanks are freshwater, but it's my understanding that RO
water is the same no matter which. I figured more salt guys use RO
machines, so this forum will do.
I'm looking to buy a RO
water unit for my house. Here's what I'm looking for the unit to do:
- I don't want to permanently plumb it in my laundry room or under my sink. I would like to keep the unit free-standing and just hook it up to the sink faucet or outside where the garden hose hooks up when I need it.
- I have a 36 gallon and a 10 gallon that I do 30-40% water changes on weekly. Since I want to hook the machine up whenever I want to use it, I want a unit that can make the amount of water I need each week in no more than 4 hours.
- Something with inexpensive filter replacements.
I'm not looking for anything special... Just something that I can use once a week to produce RO
water for my aquariums. I'm looking to spend around $100 and I don't want to spend any more than $130, but the cheaper, the better.
Once again, I want a unit that I can use when I want to! Not something that is permanently attached to my plumbing. I want to be able to wake up on Sunday (when I do water changes), take the RO
unit outside, unhook the garden hose, attach the RO
unit, and start making water.
