I use Petco water as my top off and have done some water changes with it.

You shouldn't be topping off with saltwater, you're just jacking up your salinity. Salt doesn't evaporate.

I do a 15 gallon change in my 90 gallon tank every week when I can but I work in the oilfield so I am sometimes gone for 2-3 weeks at a time and mine does fine without doing a change while i'm gone. I would wait for your guy to get back

get a rodi unit and be in control of your reef. When you use outside sources for water you are at the mercy of a $6 employee who could care less about your tank. Bite the bullet and in 6 months you will start to save money

I understand hat your saying. Not sure who your talking to though. I was gonna buy a unit and make my own but since a good friend almost like family has owned a mom and pop shop for years I use his water, the same water he uses for his tanks. I'm confident using his water and after 9 months of using his water have never had an issue.

If he ever stops making the water or there's an issue then I'll reconsider.

Thats. More of an opinion than the fact.. in fact petco is the only large commercial petstore willing to invest in carrying saltwater fish and inverts. Though i know they have a long way to go they will eventually become a major player in the prices of our goods and live stock.
