RO/di

I will be getting a Ro/di unit next month. Anybody got any good brands or links if possible. I have about 2 to 3 hundred dollars to spend. Thanks for the info.
Mike

Lots of folks are getting the ones on eBay. I got the Typhoon III from AWI. Great unit with all the bells and whistles included.

I love my AquaFX Barracuda that I got from Captive Reefs. With the pressure gauge, inline TDS meters and clear containers it is great. I figure I got what I paid for and more.

I got mine from filterdirect on ebay for $130 or so, including a pressure tank (which I highly recommend) and a drinking water facuet (which saves me tons on bottled water)

mine's the 6100 DI model

Has worked great for 1 year

I'd also say ebay is the way to go, that's where I bought mine as well

How about a good smaller output unit? I could easily get by with a 5-15GPD unit...all those eBay sites sell 85GPD and up.
