Thanks for the info, sounds like a good deal, I'm sooo tired of hauling water! Years, going to the Walgreens up the street, Glacier machine. I've probably single-handedly paid for the machine! Ohh well, need to get one of these units when I can afford it. Thanks

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

This is the one that I am looking at for the group buy. It shows as $152 and will probably be a little less during the group buy. I assume this is good, but doesn't have the tds meters and pressure gauge.

Instead of buying a whole new unit, why not just get new filters and a refillable DI canister? Although I think BRS does a better job putting theirs together, the hardware for most units I think is pretty similar. Then you can save some cash for something else. (new coral, etc)

Didn't realize that PWC has the re-fillable DI units. Will check those out and maybe get a new unit down the road sometime. Thanks all!

A clear housing for the sediment filter is a must have, IMO. The same for the DI if you have color changing resin. The charcoal filters should be replaced annually.
I replace the sediment filter ~every 2 months, the charcoal filters annually, and I start checking tds when I see that the DI resin has changed color all the way to the top of the cannister. I have two refillable cartridges for the DI resin. I let the old one dry out completely as I find it's much easier to empty it.
A pressure guage is also a must IMO, though you can always add one in line if your unit didn't come with one.
