I only have the 35 gallon a day maxxima. For PWC`s and top offs that is all you need. Less wasted water also. I was also wrong with my post. This is the one I have

The units from the doctors are quite expensive compared to the eBay units. I got mine from airwaterice.com 3 years ago. I got the Typhoon III for my 125 gallon tank.

I only hook it up when needed. I use a metal garden hose adapter from home depot to convert the kitchen faucet to a garden hose size. Then I use the garden hose to water line adapter. Take less than a minute to connect it.

I totally agree. I was not trying to save money. I just wanted to have a reliable place to get parts and replacement parts . If you can get that on ebay with the reliable parts and replacements then go for it. Sometimes I`ve heard people say that once the got the unit they could not find the parts and replacement filters later on.

I bought a 100 gpd RO/DI unit off Ebay a few years ago. It has been a great unit. What I have learned since then is that the 100 gpd is not that great of a membrane. I believe it normally has a 92% rejection rate so you will be working the DI a lot harder. It will cause your DI to run out quicker. A 75 gpd membrane has a 98% rejection and the water output difference is marginal.

My unit also came with a small non refillable DI cartridge. The full size color changing cartridges and vertical positioned DI would be better.

I have since upgraded mine and still saved money from what some of the name brand units were. There are a lot more choices now than what was around a few years ago.
