Hey guys what do you guys think of this RO/DI? I like the fact that it has a TDS meter. Just trying to figure out if I really want to mix my own water. I find easier hauling the water... But in case of an emergency I'd like to have water on hand for larger water changes....

Also, if you didn't get it during the group buy last week, I'll be doing another the first week of June; they drop the price to $179.

Also, for peace of mind, get the float valve Reverse Osmosis Float Valve - Bulk Reef Supply so you can turn on the system and walk away without worrying about getting water all over the place.

Here's how I installed mine:

You are more than welcome

It's super easy. BRS has a video on installing the float valve on their YouTube channel, too.

Found it...here's the BRS video on installing the float valve. It's as easy as it gets. With the system you have above, you have everything you need, since it already includes the auto shut-off and check valves pre-installed.
