ro/di, what type should I purchase

I know I need to get one of these. Money has been an issue, but with the scare yesterday with tank, my husband and I both agreed it is time to go purchase one. We are going out tonight to get one. We were planning on trying home depot or lowes. Tell me what size and brand is the best to get? My tank is a 75g.

I would go to ebay and get one for about a hundred dollars. That will be your cheapest route. I would say for a 75 gallon tank one that produces 35-50 gallons a day would be good.

If you want to wait, you can save yourself a ton of money by ordering off this guy on ebay,

I just bought one from ebay. Not the one you have listed, but same dealer. My husband wanted the one that has the tank with it. He wanted to get the pump also, but I couldn't see paying another $85. We purchased a few of accessories also.
