I got one from eBay for 60$ 50 gpd seems to be running good but my local reef store has 100 gpd for 250$ wondering if it's worth it cause the knock off is running good (knock on wood)

I had an RODI unit that was 50gpd but when I set it up it filled up 5g buckets in 10 min and made 1g waste water. I didn't believe it so I borrowed a TDS meter from my father and sure enough it 0! It was a coralife RODI for anyone wanting to know.

I think you have your figures reversed.. Other wise your machine is producing something like 310 gals of pure water in 12 hours ., .( which isnt going to happen with that unit ) With 48 gals + - waste water.... It should be the other way around ..,310 gals waste water and 48 gals pure water

+1. I've never seen a RO unit that produced more good water than waste.

So Dary is this the only mod you have done to your ro unit? I was looking at backflushing kits. Do you have any experience with one?
