Unfortunately Doug I cannot follow that advice. I will most definitely eat too much fowl and drink more than my share of beer. Enjoy all!

A minor little update,..re. Bulk reef supply and my ever so leaking RODI canisters,.... As promised they sent me four new o rings for the " spartan" RODI unit that I had purchased........ A few posts back I had mentioned that I had manufactured a new o ring that worked beautifully at sealing off the leaky cylinder BUT apparently , the larger diameter o ring allowed a little blow by,...the tds meter going into the DI unit was 13 ppm and after the DI unit it was only showing 10 ppm..... Soooooo I waited and when the new o rings arrived I installed a new one and tighten it up as much as was possible ,...the tds went down to 0 but the cylinder once agin leaked badly,..so I tried installing two greased up o rings ,one on top of another and now I have NO leaks and 0 tds !!!!
I also noticed that brs has a full set of new canisters headed my way ( nc ) once they become available back in stock !!! ( maybe they had a bad batch that wasn't quite right ? ) Now that's pretty good customer service !!! Got my fingers crossed that sooner or later everything will perform flawlessly once again.
I also decided that I will keep my older RODI unit instead of selling it and install that under my kitchen sink and will use the optional water bladder and faucet so I'll have a never ending supply of drinking water on tap,...my girl drinks an amazing amount of water so I'm sure she'll take advantage of the system .

Glad to hear things got straightened out. Btw I been waiting for the new 20" canisters from BRS for a couple of weeks now to get back in stock lol.

No spartan unit only leaked at the pressure gauge & I fixed that, I actually decided to add a second DI stage to mine but the canisters are still on backorder. They finally got the refillable cartridge in but still no canisters.
