Rodi Water

So I have had my SW tank set up for allmost 9 months now and have been using tap water the entire time. Now I think its about time I go ahead and get an RODI system, and this is the one Im looking at.

http://ngvi.ebay.com/vi...

Does this look good? I will admit I have no idea what to look for in an RODI system. I like this one because of its convience, I dont have anywhere to really keep it hooked up and the garden house feature seems like it will work real well for me. Also I was kinda wondering how often I have to change out the different membranes and will the ones I need for this system be easy to find ? Are any of the upgrades they have listed worth adding on? Is it set at a good price or could i do better?

Thanks in advance guys, your help is always greatly appreciated

As far as the brand I can not speak for but it is the same set up as my Maxima RO/DI unit. It should work well.

It should work fine. I have an additional stage on mine for a 2nd charcoal filter.

This is the unit I have. I got it nearly 3 years ago and I have had excellent success with it.

They do offer a kit or they did offer a kit to hook it up to a garden hose. I personally would not hook mine to a garden hose. I rant a seperate CPVC line that I hooked mine up to.

Is there are reason you want to hook it up to a garden hose?
