Need Help! ebay RO system

I'm trying to kill the phosphates once and for all!

I would like to get an RO system that I can keep under my sink.

Is this a good one

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...375696039&rd=1

what do you guys think?

please I need help. I have zero experience with ro systems and what
makes them good or bad.

the only reason I'm getting an ro is to get rid of the phosphate.
outher than that my water is AAA

will this system work?

Well that one does look like a great deal. Many people on here get one off of ebay and that may be it. I'm sure they will chime in soon.

I think they have some for like $69 plus $20-30 shipping so I bet it would be $100 total.

I bought one of these. I've been very happy with it. They also sell them with the storage tanks. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...377481239&rd=1
But, the one you are looking at is probably nice as well.

That's up to you. What size tank do you have? I didn't purchase the storage tank but I also didn't hook mine up under the sink. I have mine filtering water into a mixing tub. I use alot of water so the 100gpd works well for me.

I have a 58 and a 30. is the extra filtering worth it? the thing I dont understand is
it filters the tap water and then what? does it store it in the tank? does it know when to stop filtering when the tank is full? thanks for the help guys Im lost

Well, I would imagine, it would be just stop when the tank is full. I don't have a tank but, it would make sense that it would. Yes, the extra filtration is worth it. Expecially for reef tanks.
