Recommend a Good Source for D/I Water (Maryland)

Hi All,

My Ro/di system is about shot. I have a smaller reef tank (33Long). I figured, I could do freshwater top offs from tap water instead of replacing the unit...I'm Broke. Bad idea! Corals are starting to show the effects and back to pure it is.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a source to go and by Ro/di water. Distilled seems a little pricy when I have my own large container and all...

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Why don't you just buy replacement filters for your unit? They are pretty cheap on Ebay. There is really nothing that goes "bad" on a ro/di unit except the filters.

I agree with CCCapt, buy replacement filters and you should be back in business.

What makes you say your RO/DI is about shot btw?
