Just got my RODI unit from ebay!

I bought this portable unit last week. Anyone else have it? I'm gonna try to get it installed tonight. So very excited, no more trips to the lfs or publix and lugging 40lb jugs from my car.

Looks good for what it costs. I've been looking around for a good unit, and I may have to go with this one. Thanks for posting this, wouldn't have run into it otherwise. =D Good luck getting it set up, hope it works good!

Will do! It looks sturdy and worth the 59$ so far. Directions are totally useless but there's a link on their ebay listing that you can print out that's almost idiot proof. I'm gonna prove or disprove that tomorrow. LOL

Highly interested to here the verdict, and hope it works perfectly for you. If it does I will definitely be picking one up for that price.

I got around to hooking it up finally! I attached some pictures of my ghetto setup for now. B/f might mount it in garage for me.

I give this product a thumbs up so far. It was idiot proof to hook up, although I didn't have the in hose fully seated so my garage is now covered in a fine spray of water. lol

I'll update with test results later, I need to flush the system for a few gallons first it says.

It's been running bout half an hour and produced 5 gallons of waste water and about 2.5 gallons of pure water so far. I'm guessing yield to be about 5g an hour. Which is perfect for me! Sorry for all the updates just very excited that something is actually working right. LOL

Please keep the updates coming.

So 2|1 on ro'd water huh? Is that the norm for ro|di water? Is the waste water good for plants/flowers or does it need to be dumped? I'm a noob with RO but want to learn, so sorry for the questions :P.

I've been putting the waste water on some flowers out front lol.

i'm pretty sure that the waste/good ratio is right, I've heard it before.

I tested the water for the following and here are the results:
Amm: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 0
Phosphates: 0
KH: 53.7 ?
GH: think I have a bad kit. it never changed to green even after putting 20 drops in.
ph: 6.0
