Ro/di unit

So I`ve had my ro/di unit set up for less than hour, and I already have a gallon of ro water. There lots of waste water, I have it hooked up to a water hose out side and the ground is soaked. I can hear it running through the filter and it seems like its working right, but I have never used one before. Now, its not a name brand, but I only have a 25 gal. reef and I figured that this is better then nothing. Has anybody used this one before. its 0ppm Portable 100GPD Reverse Osmosis Ro Di Filtration | eBay

Many units produce a 2:1 ratio of waste to good water. Do you have a pressure valve on it? I think the common pressure is about 50 psi...

Just make sure you ditch the first couple gallons as the system works in. Was always recommended on my units.

Your ready to rock. I made the mistake of not knowing tdi and just thought it was good. Had the brown fun. Good drinking water.
