I know there are several threads going on right now on some RO
filters and I'm sorry about making yet another thread but I really wanted to try and get some peoples thoughts. I think I know which one I want but lets get some feedback.
The first one is from ebay:
150 GPD 6stage Reverse Osmosis RO DI+Tank Water Filters - eBay (item 380323730560 end time Jun-09-11 22:32:17 PDT)
Standard filter that I'm sure many on this site have gotten. I would need to also purchase a TDS
meter (another 20.00 or so). The big thing are the replacement filters that look to be around 115.00 or so. That is pretty big. Total off the bat is going to be around 182 with shipping and the TDS
The other one I'm looking at is:
Aquarium Water | Reverse Osmosis | RODI Water | ReefKeeper Water | EXTREME TYPHOON III 150 GPD RODI with Gauge & TDS Alarm & Dual TDS Meter
This one comes with the TDS
meter so I won't have to worry about that and replacement filters look to be around 46.00! That is a big difference. Higher upfront cost though being around 280 PLUS shipping (guessing around 30 more dollars) so 310 to start.
I'm leaning toward the second one as I think long-term it may be a better investment. It is about 130 more dollars which is not a small amount.
So what do others think?
