One thing you might want to change is at least have the DI filter standing upright to prevent channeling. That stuff is a powder and with water flowing through it it will begin to get compacted somewhat and the water will flow over/around the DI stuff. If you have it upright it will pack "down" so to speak and all water is forced to pass through it. I noticed this on my DI filter after my first fill up.

Did a little re arranging in the garage, have the drain line going outside and moved the unit towards the side entry door. I'll probably move it to the back porch going forward so I can water my flowers and watch the fill tank.

So far I have 3 5gallon jugs filled. I don't count the two buckets I dumped of the first water that came out. For me this is perfect, I can spend one day making water for the week and then put the unit away til next time.

I had no trouble at all making 20g of water today. I highly recommend this product, it was super cheap too! let me know if you go ahead and get one!
I will be getting a TDS meter soon and will post the results but I don't expect anything tragic. Woot! No more phosphates! So excited! LOL

The company on eBay has the replacements. I didn't get any yet, figured I have a few months.
