you have to install a valve to turn them off. they do not come with one.

i don't think there would be anything wrong with mounting the DI resin chambers vertically.

Great! I can install the valve np.

What carbon does everyone use? I'm tried of buying the Fluval bags, It's not a good bang/buck.

Found an awesome aquarium store about thirty min away from me and got these

Also bought that eBay RO/DI water system, can you guys assist me in installing it when it arrives?

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

I'll help answering questions about your RO/DI if I can. I just finished putting one up myself.

Where are you going to set it up? Something I didn't think about ahead of time myself was where it was going. I should have because I hooked mine up to a garden hose so then had to go to the store and buy an adapter to go from the garden hose to the RO/DI unit. Same with the drain (since I don't have a drain) I have it hooked up to a garden hose in order to drain into the yard and water the grass!

I just hook mine up to the garden hose on my patio with a 32g garbage can.
Then all I have to do is drop a pump into the can and fill the tank back up.
Did you get the faucet adapter or garden hose?
