RO unit

Does anyone have the vyair RO unit? Any good? I just watched a vid of a man installing it just by connecting to a tap and putting the waste line down the drain and he just screwed it into the wall, would I have to screw it to the wall as I live in rented accom and my landlord would let me drill holes into the tiles he would go mad as he is my partners manager I wouldn't want to upset him thanks guys

I use this model of ro/di unit. It is a portable unit so you don't have to disturb any piping in the plumbing.

I have mine hooked up to my garden hose but I believe they also include an option for hooking it up to your faucet. You just have to tell them which adaptor you want or else they will sends the hardwire into the plumbing kit.

I've only had mine a few months so I havent changed out the filters yet. Supposedly they are good for 9 months or so, it says the life span of each filter tube in the description somewhere I think.

Here are the refills they sell as well

Hope that helps!

Better to research now than find out the hard way. lol

How much gph does the 900 have? usually the model number is the gph, but I find it hard to believe they consider a 900gph PH a nano. I would go with either a 240gph or a 425gph Koralia tops. You don't want your fish flying around hehe...

Do you have the tank setup yet or still in the planning mode?
