I would get one of these two. I have the second one and it works great. I know other people have these models and recommend them as well. The first one comes with a small tank that you can use for drinking water, I did not need that so I went with the second one that I just use to make top off and water change water.

They come with a fitting that attaches under the sink to the cold water line up to your faucet. There is also a fitting that will attach to your drain line. When you have the unit on the processed water will fill your container through the discharge hose on the RO and the waste will go straight to the drain through the waste line on the RO, neither one comes out your faucet. I bought the attachment to fit to a garden hose, so I have it running off the cold water line to my washer then have the drain going down the drain for the washer too. HTH?

I have used biospira and it worked relatively well. The lfs said you can add fish the next day?? It don't work that well. I had a mild amonia spike that went down after 2-3 days. I then let my tank set for 2 weeks and tested water agin. All was fine. Using the bio and live rock together???? not sure though

I recently purchased my aqua c skimmer from captive reefs that i saw in the vendors section.
my RO unit, a cora-life has 3 quart sized canisters that have filters in them. there are 3 tubes that come out of it
1 waste water, that i use for gardening, or laundry
2 good water
3 supply line that has a garden hose connection.
I mounted the ro unit next to the sink, and hook up the hose to make water when i need it. I usually turn it on before bed and have good water in the morning.
