I just installed the famous ebay filterdirect 6 stage RO
I was tickled with it! No problems what so ever installing the system. I have it running into a 30 gallon commericial rubbermaid trash can. I got the automatic stop float valve...when it is full...it stops!
I also got the $25 TDS
meter from filterdirect. My house well water was 150ppm....I tested my RO
water 2 hours after I started it up...and it was down to 4ppm. I used all that water....and the next day I tested it again...and guess what.... ZERO ppm
(like none). I thought the TDS
meter was not working...but it worked...as my well water was still 150ppm! I could not be more happy!
110 Gallon/day sounds like a lot...but it is just a trickle. I filled my 30 gallon trash can overnight though. You just can't watch it or it will take for ever.
I will be useing my RO
for my Freshwater 90gallon (50:50 Mix with Tap water), and 100% for my SW
tank. I also have plenty of RO
to share with friends!
Best $90 I have spent so far (...well $90 + $25 shipping + $15 float turn off + $15 additional DI
packet + $25 TDS
meter + $10 Saddle Valve with tubing from Lowes + $25 commerical trash Can + $15 for 2x7 gallon jugs for carrying and mixing SW
)...so it came to $220 for just the RO
setup...don't tell my wife!
