4 days roughly for my 180 gallons but I didn't run it at night once it got 3/4 full so I wouldn't have to worry about over flow. I just dropped the hose from my system into the display tank and let it go. You could fill a 90 in a day and a half if you could sit there when it got close to full and watch it

The tank filter? I ran the return pump from my sump once the tank filled. Or are you asking was I running rodi?

No did you have your regular filter running while you were filling it up

I'm confused what you're asking all my filtration is in my sump which gets water from my overflows. So I can't run any pumps or filters in my tank until its full.

Yes but mine has been in a year and made a ton of water I'd say almost 1000 gallons and it still puts out 0 tds. Once your tds creeps up on you output water is when you replace your di media. It's fairly cheap like $12
