I use the brute cans cause they are stronger and can hold the water weight much better.

I don't have a large tank and I am using a 37 gallon rubbermaid tub. Seems sturdy. However, i just installed my ro/di system today so I don't know how it will work long term. Looks good so far.

Don't know about any brown film but I take both my brute cans every other fill outside and rinse them out real good.

I'll do that then thanks for the help! Last question is about kalk containers I've been seeing alot of people saying that you need to have the container your using closed. All I have is five gallon containers do you know where I can get the five gallon container similar to the one mr saltwater tank uses??

I use some 12 gal containers I got at Grainger.



They are mounted up high so I can use gravity and a hose to get to my tank and top off reservoir.
