Carey, why are you throwing your water out? You should be keeping that waste water for your cichlid tanks

Yeah, a lot of african breeders, who coincidentally breed discus, use the ro/di for discus and the waste for africans. Some mix it 50/50 with regular tap, some don't. My LFS has sw livestock, and in some of their reef tanks, they use RO/DI, so they use the waste in their african tanks.

Mine runs pretty slow. I think I have low water pressure. I might get one and a half or two gallons per hour.

On the waste water subject... is the waste RO water? As in purified drinking water? If so, I could save our family a ton of money on bottled water.

I think the waste is fine for drinking. Might want to double check that though. All I do know is that it isn't the purified stuff, but I think it's still safe to drink.

(I highly suggest to wait for more opinions) =/

I would not advise drinking the waste ro water.I am not an expert but would think it would contain to high amounts of the chemicals that were removed to purify the water to start with.Be like drinking 100 grain booze.
