I also have had the 150gpd purewater club unit and never had any issues with it. I started getting a tds reading of about 2 -3 after about 6-8 months of heavy use and replaced the 3 filters and tds went back to 0. Out of my tap the tds is about 250.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have been having some algae issues in my 29 gallon recently. I wonder if 024 would be enough to cause that?

It would be. You don't need a new unit though. Maybe new D.I. resin.

I'm not sure if Pure Water Club has one or not, but I would invest ina refillable DI canister. I know Bulk Reef Supply makes one that comes with the media. I think it was about $35. It will hold more of the DI resin and I think will produce pure water for a longer time and end up saving you cash since you'll only need the resin itself in the future.

Purewater club has both the refillable canisters and the non. The clear canisters are usually the refillable ones. I think I paid $12 for a non refillable and $15 for a refillable one with the DI included of course. lol

@carey, what do you like about your BRS ro/di unit that you didnt like about the PWC one? I am thinking about getting one in the next BRS group buy. I like the idea of the clear canisters so that you can tell the status of the canisters.

I like that the filters are industry standard so you can get them anywhere, not just from one source. Also like the bells and whistles, the dual tds meter, the pressure gauge and the flush kit too. Overall the BRS unit is solid and sturdy, you can't go wrong if you get one. The PWC one was great while I had it, always produced clean water for me and I liked the portable aspect of it. The BRS unit is now mounted on the wall on my patio, it's quite large.

Carey, how much did that unit cost? And what does it cost you to maintain it? Ie new filters, etc.

During the group buys the "Plus" unit is only $180 so I got that one. Comes with everything you could need. The sediment filters I believe are like $5 and the carbons are about $12 or so. You can get a refill of DI resin for I think $20 or so from BRS as well.

They also have a unit for I think $120 or so that doesn';t have the tds meters or the pressure gauge. Its the same unit without the bells and whistles pretty much. You can also go into the ro/di section on the BRS site and "make your own". That way you can pick and choose exactly what you want.
