great deal on RO/DI filter under $80!

Anyone looking for a RO/DI system on a tight budget?

I just got on a 6 stage RO+DI on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...300111275&rd=1. He normally sells them for $65 buy it now, and also has a few bid auctions everyday that go for $40-50! $27.50 is added for S/H either way. There is no faucet or tank, I just plan on filling my own containers anyway. It will be so nice not going to lfs for RO, not to mention no more bottled water to buy at the market...

Just do an Ebay search for AQUA75GPD He also sells 100gpd units, he emailed me the instructions & tracking #. Seems to be very good instructions with troubleshooting and phone support if necessary.

Ebay is just wonderful... you can find just about anything there.

Thanks for the link, I have a feeling we'll be buying one of those in the near future.

Why 8O . The thing is simple to hook up. as long as your gonna use the drinking water attachment. If you need help pm me and I'll try and help you. The hardest part was figuring out where to put all those blasted hoses.
