I'm about to Tear down my tank! Frustrated!

I haven't even started to stock my new 75g tank and I'm almost ready to tear it down, and sell it all off.. Very Frustrated!

I have several posting on this site reguarding my issues with my water and I can't keep buying water it will cost me a fortune.

I am on well and the ppm reading is 335 x10 so tharts 3350ppm

I bought an RO/DI system. Today I produced about 15g of water with a 24h period! My DI is already dead! Completely brown, at first I was getting 0ppm but today when I got home from work it was reading 400ppm, it jumped right back up after the DI died out.

I don't know what to do!
I was thinking of getting a whole home water system but I have no idea what type of system I would need and that would prob set me back a few grand!

I put the 15g that the RO produced today into the tank now I have a yellow tint in my aquarium! Good thing I dont have any live stock....

A whole house system is a few grand; I think my sister paid $5000 for hers. You're just not in a good situation to keep a reef if your only water source is well water.

If the cost is a big concern right now you may want to consider freshwater. I've never kept full marine, but I just wanted to keep you in the hobby. There's some cool freshwater fish that you could keep in a 75 gallon tank. Freshwater costs a lot less... Don't throw away the hobby completely.

If your unit is fairly new, I would try contacting the company and see if they have any remedies that could fix your problem. You may even get them to send you a whole new product. What if you just try FOWLR?
