I'm having a hair algae problem myself! You started making your own water and it went away?? I've been buying my ro from the store and have quite the lawn growing in my tank wonder if I'm experiencing the same problem

Well, as a say I changed a few things. So I'm not really sure which individual one cured it. I'm pretty sure it was a combination.
I would recommend getting a four stage RO DI unit though, basically for ease of use and it keeps you away from the fish shop! Plus you know EXACTLY what your putting in there. A TDS meter is a must. It's interesting to see what the shop supplies as RO water. Mine read 24 PPM. My tap water is 130 ish, my unit is about 2-3 PPM.

I got a fitting which clamps onto ur water pipe. The fitting has a tap attached to it so u can turn it off when ur not using it. So if u never got a fitting u could maybe look for one online?
