I went with the coralife unit only because I got such a ridiculously good deal on it after discounts with amazon. I hooked it up today, and right off it lived up to its reputation, leaking in several places. I picked up some plumbers tape, reinforced the connections and readjusted a few things. It is leak free atm, and so far has produced about 4 gallons of rodi
water in just about 3 hours. I am dumping the first 10 gallons per suggestion on the instructions so I haven't tested the TDS
yet, but I'm very anxious to do so. The plastic hose connection is a true POS, and since I'll be using it outside (don't trust it) I have to go back to the hardware store and get a better connecter. I'm keeping my finger crossed on this. I only need about 5 gallons a week, so hopefully this unit will do the job.
