Looking for an RO/DI unit

Hey everyone. I'm looking for a good ro/di unit. My price range is about $100.
I only use about 20 gallons a week, as I only run Nano tanks. Anyone have any suggestions?

Ok...well the problem I see with this is that you need to use their proprietary replacement cartriges, not common 10" refills. I would want to be able to buy replacements at any lfs at any time.

We'll my LFS sells the unit, and the cartridges. I see how it could be a problem. Though.

Any other suggestions?

Ha. Let's face it the difference is less than what we pay for some corals and fish in the hobby. Plus the OP gets a 90 day warranty from a reputable company. Better than $100 on a used item like BRS most likely without proof of purchase.
