The Barracuda does have DI and you can add a drinking water kit to it. The 5 stage drinking water unit does not have DI although you can add it. If I got a system with a drinking water tank, I would probably mount it under the kitchen sink. They come with a faucet that you can mount over the sink so you have easy access to the purified water. Do you have room for a larger storage tank? I use a 55 gal plastic drum to store my RO/DI water in. It's hooked to the utility sink with a piercing adapter. You can also get a hose bib adapter that will allow you to hook to the water valve that goes to your washing machine. Use a Y fitting and leave them both hooked up. You might give Irene a call at Aqua FX and see if she can put you a custom system together based on your needs. Perhaps one of the 4 stage drinking water systems with added DI?

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

OK Skip_16157,

May I suggest, a 4 stage Barracuda with a drinking water kit. We can provide enough tube so your DI can extend to where you need it to be.

Actually there are a number of ways to handle your situation. Can you give me a call so I can get details. Like, if you only need 2 gallons per week for your tank, we can add another 4 gallon tank for DI water. Then there is a ball valve on the top of the tank and you could transport the 4 gallon tank to your tank, open the valve at your tank,is just one way.

Like I say, call me, no matter who you buy from, we ARE here to HELP!

Thanks for the help. Currently I am undecided due to the problems I am having. If I buy your unit I want to make sure it is a investment.

But when I do decide to buy one I will defintely buy from Aquafx since you are very supportive to your customers and to this very helpful website.

Thanks again.
