I finally got into the website now which one do u guys and gals recommend for me from here
http://www.purewaterclub.com/catalog...cPath=88_61_28
Or should I get one with a tank that's on this website
http://www.purewaterclub.com/catalog...cPath=88_61_63
What's the difference from the $145 and the $290 tank version?
If I get one without a tank, can I buy the tank separate?

RO water is used on fresh and Marine aquariums. As far as the website goes, I used a credit card and had no issues getting my stuff. I've not used their customer service so I really can't comment on that one.

The type I bought was one that you don't have to hook up under the sink and can take anywhere. I didn't buy the tank because I have two aquariums that I have to do water changes on so I basically use a bucket from Home Depot with a hole in the top, put the line with purified water in the hole and let the other drain the dirty water out. Then I dump it into a 30 gallon trash can I use to mix my saltwater.

The unit you get depends on how quickly you want it to make water (gallons per hour) and whether you want to put it under a sink or not. I would go with a deionized unit as well.

BRS has good quality stuff as well.

I want the one that I can take anywhere and I don't need the tank cause ill just use it for my aquarium plus my tank is 100 gallons so which unit would you choose? Also can it stay and not run for a couple days and does anything happen to it if it doesn't run?

Yes, the DI is the deionizing part.

The portable one, which it sounds like that's the one you're leaning towards, is just hooked up to faucet, used, and then removed. There's an adapter that you can use to connect.
