I was planning on getting an RO filter, Dusty... Could you possibly fill me in on where you're gettin' it and how much it costs?

well the one i am looking at is an ad on this site, www.aquariumwaterfilters.com , the 4 stage barracuda 50 gpd after discount and with shipping added is 201.15 the 100gpd is 217.15. so it just depends on how much you think you may need. plus the 100 gpd may use filters quicker causing and added cost in the long run. not sure on that though.

Geez. I think maybe I'll be spending my money elsewhere before I get an RO filter. $200 would go a long way in other areas. I'll keep driving to get my water.

There at one point was a 10% cupon on this site for stuff from there giving a total discount of 20%.

Having a higher output RO membrane should not cause the filter cartrages to be used up any sooner. Think of a RO system as an investment vs simply an equipment purchase. You can use the water for much more than just water changes and new saltwater.

Gauge how much does your water cost when you buy it? How many gal do you buy a month?
