RO/DI unit reccomendations

Looking for a RO/DI unit for my 72 gallon FOWLR Saltwater tank. Would prefer not to spend a ton of money on it if possible, I was looking at this on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...348579551&rd=1

but don't know if it would be suitable or not, if not can anyone reccomend any good units to buy. Thanks!

Not an expert, but try filterdirect (seller on ebay)

I really like mine. Quick ship, good help, works great.

That one looks good, but can only tell you about the one I have.
$120 shipped, 85GPD, with faucet for drinking water.

I am happy and would recommend it.

That looks like a nice unit and a decent price with the 4gal tank included. I also use a filterdirect unit and have been very happy with it. Bought it on ebay.

Unit looks like many others. I don't think you'll get the filter life for the first stage of 12 months. My sediment filter gets visibly dirty in a few months and gets replaced every 2-3 months. I have clear plastic housings for the filters.
I got my set up from airwaterice.com Not the cheapest but very reliable and Walt is always quick to answer any questions.

Don't forget to add a tds meter if it's not included.

Another FilterDirect user here. We got the one without the drinking water spout and pressure tank. We're not going to be using it for drinking water, just the tank. Figured we didn't need the bells and whistles. Got our installed last night and we've already made about 30g of water with it. They don't come with the TDS so order one when you purchase.
