ro/di

Buying distilled water is getting very old and expensive, especially when running a hyposalinity tank along with my main tank. Does anybody have a RO/DI unit where you can get just RO water for drinking before it goes through the DI part for the aquarium? If anybody has a unit that produces both RO water for drinking and then RO/DI water for the aquarium and they recommend it, I would love to know what unit you got to maybe help limit my choices. Thanks.

I am pretty sure all of the units have a spigot to dispense the RO water before it goes to the DI cartidge. I know there are units that connect to your sink so you can have a faucet to dispense the RO water in your kitchen. I installed mine behind my washing machine so it was out of sight and close to where I store my water this is it here Melevsreef.com - 100gpd RO/DI System shipped for under 200 bucks glad I bought it. And the filter refills are the standard size available locally.

Ebay has pretty good units and at a very good price. Mine is for the SW tank only. You can get one for under a hundred dollars on ebay.
