I won't be moving it so I'm ok with not having the weels. What I'll have to do I think is place the brute on the patio and make 5 gallon buckets at a time and put it in there to have some stored up.

You can also run a super long line from the R.O.D.I. to the trash can. My R.O. unit fills a 55 gallon drum about 15 feet away.

That world work! I'd just have to Hook it up and then take it down when I'm done. Is this possiable? I think I'm gonna get in on the next bulk buy at BRS if I have the money and get the RODI.

Im going to sand down the tank stand Tuesday I think and buy the new stain Friday it's gonna be a dark red/brown color!

And any suggestions on how to get this off? I've fried scalding hot water and a kitchen scrubber that is now designated for my tank but it won't come off

A little bit of vinegar and some elbow grease should take care of it.

Try wetting some towels/rags with vinegar and laying them against it. Paper towels might work the best, they will mold and stick to the surface.
