Water General 110gpd RO/DI unit. Anyone have one?

A buddy sent me this Ebay item. 6 stage unit. $86 for the unit. Faucet or diverter adapter for $8. Floats for $16.

I just bought a $150 3 stage unit. Hmmm.....

I have one, too., but I admit I haven't used nay of the water yet. Some have said ethat in general you should toss 10 gal or so of the first water produced. i'm going to test mine today. Float switcc for horiz installation in a rubber garbage can works great.
30 gal standard 55 lbs LR, 60 lb live sand, 10 gal sump/refugium. Urchin skimmer, mag7 pump, 3 x 96W PC combination 10,000K/actinic bulb, 2 blue LED moonlights
SG 1.024, temp 79.5, pH 8.4

Livestock I added:

1 skunk cleaner. 12 hermits: red, scarlet, blue. 15 or so assorted snails. Discosomas, Ricordia, Rhodactis mushroom corals, chaetomorpha (sump), 1 feather duster, Montipora digitata, Montipora capricornis, Montipora hispids. assorted zoos, Xenia, Kenya tree coral, green Sinularia, green star polyps, branching hammer coral, bubble coral, Devil's hand leather. Yellow chromis, purple firefish.

Hitchhikers: the usual suspects :crabs, bristles, urchin, mantis shrimp (now in exile in mantis tank)

List of possible/likely newcomers:

Feather duster. PJ cardinal, Bangghai cardinal, Firefish goby, Clownfish, Neon goby, Yellow watchman goby, Orchid dottyback. Various corals.
