Favorite ro/di system

I am in the market for my very own ro/di system and was wondering what everyone's favorite / most cost effective systems are.

The ones from BRS can't be beat in terms of price and features. Get them during a group buy (I will be doing one for July 4th) and it's a no-brainer.

I have the aqua fx great unit good price a couple weeks ago at Dr Foster and Smith they were on sale. Get a inline tds meter amazon has them cheap helps you to monitor the water after membrane and di and when to replace prefilters.

How many GPH would you guys shoot for if you had to supply a 60g setup?

Most standard systems are 75GPD (day, not hour ). BRS sells 150GPD units, or upgrade kits for 75GPD units to bump them to 150GPD.

A 75GPD system puts out about 3 gallons per hour. 150GPD systems put out about 6GPH.

150 GPD Water Saving Upgrade Kit - Bulk Reef Supply is their upgrade kit.
BRS 5 Stage Water Saver PLUS RO/DI System - 150GPD - Bulk Reef Supply is the full 150GPD unit.
They also have a variety of 75GPD systems. I personally use the 5 stage plus and love it.

I second the group buy suggestion. It's 11% off during the group buys. I just ran a buy last week, and will be running another the week of July 4th. The 5 stage plus comes to $179 during the group buy, and ships free.

Go with a 75gpd. It's best to make enough water for a couple days and then make more. Good water pressure is all you need better the pressure faster the water. For 179 the brs is a good deal I think it has the inline meter to. Inline tds meter will help with replacing your two or three pre filters there like $8 bucks each. That will help your ro membrane last for a couple years which are more expensive.
