You want a RO
unit, you can get them for around $100 on eBay. The eBay units are good and everyone has sucess with them. The sell is "filtersdirect" or something really close to that.
Just using standard tap water filters does not do much except start getting expensive really fast
It is marginally better than straight tap water.
I use distilled water for water changes in my 15g. Only cost me about $2 a week for the PWC
, but after some extra waterchanges, acclimations, top offs, and curing live rock, I have probably spent $60 to $75 on distilled water in the last 4 months
I definitely should have purchased the RO
to begin with. Live and learn...
