Yes that'd a great unit. I was gonna get this one but they were sold out so I settled with the 4 stage (you can upgrade these units easily). The extra carbon block will lengthen the lifespan of you resin and membrane. After 9 months I'm still getting 0 TDS but I'm gonna change out all my filters in the next month or two. Also I would advise getting the extras like the dual inline TDS meter flush kit and pressure goats if it doesn't already come with it. And a spare set of filters is always nice to have readily available

Perfect! Thanks! Looked like a good deal all the brs units have fantastic reviews! Oh I want a refractometer NOT a hydrometer, correct?

This one is a very debatable... I personally use Kent reef salt with no issues but I know a lot of people use io and red sea with great success too
