What you need to do is look at current patents and patents pending. If this design/concept doesn't exist in the form your building, you better apply for a patent ASAP.

Next you should make a proof of concept. Then propose it to a filter company and take in X% of it in royalties.

Might as well incorp a RO/DI unit in it too.

As i aid before that is the least i can afford it would be very cheapy and i would get no profit But right now price is not my objective.

You would have to search thru the US and/or International Patent Office(s)

Prolly could do it via web.

http://patft.uspto.gov/

And from what a quick search,it looks like this might already exist. You should do some heavy research, copyrights and copyright lawsuits are HUGE deals.

What would really put the nail in the coffin would be to be able to pull the data off the screen useing USB to a lap top or computer for analyzes to help determine problematic area's.

Hey don't let nobody tell you you cant do it!!!!! If you make it work, you can make a economic unit and a deluxe unit with all the bells and whistles. If you build it ppl will come.

If you look at it this way Pol pay $25 for a water test kit . If you add it up maybe around $200 a year thats for your low level aquarist. so paying $400 or $500 wouldn't be that much.
