Need RO advice

I have a 125 gallon tank and I haven't put in any water yet due to fact I don't have a RO filter yet. I look online and see all these types of filters, but it looks like they all are like the same thing except for the different stages. Can anyone advice me on a good but affordable RO filter. I saw this type of filter that a bunch of people were getting off ebay called the Typhoon III. Well any help would be appreciated. Thanks


Chris

Seen this one? I believe some folks around here may have some experience with it. Check around. Only 2 left @ $99.00. This ia a 110gpd unit and had a lot of neat accessories (auto shutoffs, & etc)

Oh ok so I need both, do you have any suggestions as to which system I should get? There was this other system that I saw on ebay in contrast to the one austin showed me. It was an Aqua Safe filter system that pretty much had the same things as the one presented by austin. I don't know if anyone has tried this system. But any input would be great. Thanks.

Ya sure flame that would be great. No i'm not in any rush right now at buying the system I was just looking around trying to find out which would be a good reliable one. Also let me know how much was the final price including shipping when you won the bid.

I don't know if this is the one that you got but, if it is ya please let me know how it works for you.

I'm not sure whether to get this one of the one listed above by seaham. Hope to hear from you soon Flame. See if you could also post some pics, that would be great .

yup that would be the one i got accept that i didnt buy that paticluar pacakage with all the replace ment filters since i will probably only be making about 6 gallons a week between my two tank so it would be a while before i needed repalcing. but thats still a good deal you would be set for a few years depending on how much you use it. as soon as it gets here i will let ya know how well it works for me i plan to tare one tank down and replace the watet, so i should be able to run 60 plus gallons through it and a good test run. i also purchase the meter separte just so i can make sure its working and know when i need to replace filter heres the link i think i will like this better than the hand held and their almost the same price:http://stores.ebay.com/H2O-Science_W...enameZL2QQtZkm

its at the bottom of the page

and heres is the one i bidded on and won for price, ship= 107.00
http://cgi.ebay.com/AQUA-SAFE-100GPD...QQcmdZViewItem

and i will post asap when it gets here 8)

I bought the Aqua-Safe system just over 7 months ago. We have gotten close to 700 gallons from it. It's done a good job for us.
It's time for new filters and resin and the best deal I could find was from www.buckeyefieldsupply.com.

aqua safe canada, and the american company (water general? I forget) that sell on ebay both make good systems that many people report success with.

I am REALLY glad I got the small pressure tank, and the drinking water faucet (For RO only) which came with mine.

I have the 6 stage from the american co, and I think I paid 120 with everything
