RO/DI Opinion

I'm trying to choose an RO/DI system and I don't know the first thing about them. My tanks evaborate about 1 or 2 gallons a day.

Any advice on what I might need or which brands are most reliable for the output I need?

Scott. How ya like it? $99, plus $37 shipping.

Does it have auto shutoff capabilities? Wanna recommend it to my buddy maybe.

Any other folks out there wanna recommend another? Minimum, 50 plus gallons a day. 100gpd sounds real good so far. Mine is a 50 gpd, and you can forget that sucker is on trying to reach the goal.

I have the same as Roka, but from filterdirect. Works great.

austinsdad, for auto shut off you need a hydraulic float valve of sorts. Most sellers on ebay with ro/di offer this as an add on.

Mine came with replacement filters, as well. I like it, I kinda thought it would make the water taste different, but it doesn't. It doesn't have any top off capability, that I know of, mine is attached under my kitchen sink.

I drink the water out of the nozzil, not the tap...am I drinking the wrong stuff? I use the tap to fill up my water. Is just RO bad, cause when I'm in a hurry I drink out of the tap?

I have a similar RO/DI to that of Roka...great product! You can buy a auto shut-off kit for RO/DI filters.
