After checking out " nunu's" build regarding his temperature rising in his tank to dangerous levels and killing a coral or two,....I remember the last couple of summers when the outside temps were hovering around the 100 mark for weeks and watching my tanks water slowly start to rise and trying everything from fans to frozen saltwater to get things down to a save level,..... I recall getting up in the middle of the night just to check on the tank's temperature ,.... Well , after saying all of that ,..yesterday I ordered a jbl chiller for my tank,...kinda like having a generator,.. Ya never know and there's just too much time and way too much $$$$ involved just to see it get wiped out overnite !!!! I think I'd especially get a little piece of mind when I go to Hawaii at the end of September while my brother watches over my little aquatic world.

Hey ryan,..how are things going??? Nova scotia??? Some how I thought you were like in the Midwest USA ,....maybe what you lack in heat over there you more than make up with cold weather,.you guys probably have some massive heaters on your tanks lol,..... Hey it's all good no matter what.

once again it's guinea pig Dary making his preliminary report on the RODI 150 gallon upgrade gizmo I just received.... I decided that before doing anything as far as removing any water lines etc , I'd take some photos of the setup BEFORE I started undoing the lines just in case somehow I got messed up I could always use the pictures to go back in time and redo everything ( momma didn't raise any dummies here ,.yeah right ! ) . I also got the BRS video on my iPad and using the pause the video Button , I proceeded very cautiously taking one step at a time and pausing the video between removing any water lines etc just so I didn't screw up..... Actually it went pretty fast and it's a very easy job to do BUT I'd suggest doing it like I did and use the video and the pause button.
I took pictures along the way so you can probably see what was removed and replaced,..... So the whole transformation probably took 10 minutes or so ,... The results look awesome,... Using two 5 gallon salt buckets side by side you can see that after exactly 25 minutes the waste water was to the top of the first bucket and the GOOD water was at the 9" mark out of 13"'s ,...it actually took me 35 minutes to fill the five gallon bucket with the GOOD water,... Not quite a 1-1 ratio but pretty dang good never the less,..hey , I'm impressed,..there's a couple of pictures actually showing the stream of good water being made,... I got a feeling that brs will all of a sudden start selling a few of these gizmos,.....hope this helps.,.....Dary

It does look like a nice flowing output. I just produced my first 12 gallons today and it will fill a gallon in about 8 minutes . I may want to do some add on stuff to it after I get used to it.
