RO question??

I plan on buying a kent marine TFC, 24 GPD RO unit. http://www.marinedepot.com/md_viewIt...product=KM1233 Do I need to buy anything else to be able to use it? I am not connecting it to my aquarium. I just want to make water for weekly changes. My tank is currently running with tap water. TIA

You should not need anything else as long as you have a utility tub that has a threaded faucet. The units come with a threaded sink adapter. If you don't have a threaded faucet you will need a faucet adapter to work with your faucet. If you check the sponsor specials forum you'll see We have 75GPD units on sale that have many more features than the kent units. They come with a pressure gauge, waste water auto shutoff, drain saddle valve and 4 stages instead of 3. They are $139.99 with free shipping.

There are RO/DI units on eBay for the same price. I am not sure how much more DI gets out of the water, but for the same price it couldn't hurt.

Here is one, many of use this this exact model.
