My first addition is an Air Water and Ice Typhoon III Extreme RO
I had two reasons to buy this unit. I have horrible water for fish provided by my well, and buying water gets really, really expensive when you have to go 100 miles to the nearest LFS
The set up was kind of a bear to complete. The instructions were less than desired, and the plumbing was a bit confusing. What I did like was that absolutely everything was labeled. The instructions also included several images for the different parts of the system.
I've had it up and functioning for about three quarters of a day and it's made about 40 gallons of water. I imagine that my cold water has something to do with it. Also I have a pre-filter (AWI water softening resin) on it so my usually high water pressure is reading only about 40 psi on the gauge. I'm not concerned about the output at this point. My main intention was for good, clean water instead of the well water that was mentioned.
A few of the nice features that this AWI unit came with was the dual on-board Total Dissolved Solids (TDS
) meter as well as a hand held one to check the water in the container. It also came with a float valve for automatic shut off. This is really a unit that comes with everything someone needs to set up a RO
system with the exception of a container for the water. I was very pleased to see completeness of the kit.
I'll post further with the results of the first water change and hopefully better quality water resulting from it.
