D-D Reverse Osmosis Unit

I have searched and searched for the specifications on these units and cannot find anything to tell me how much RO water is produced per day, hour or minute etc.

I am trying to work out how long it will take me to make up 450 litres of RO water for my new aquarium. Any help is appreciate.

Thanks

Time how long it takes to fill a gallon ,2.5 or 5g bucket..
It really depends on your water pressure going into unit and condition of filters.

Good idea. I will try that this evening.

I think I may have to just go and buy the RO water from my LFS otherwise I believe it will take days

Some systems need a booster pump to run the filter properly. Not all of us have 65 psi out of the tap...
I use a pump and have municipal water at about 40psi with out pump.
Clogged /old /dried out filters can severely effect performance.
