I am also very interested on a good RO/DI unit. One of my moms clowns just got ich and it would be so much better if we could just make our own saltwater.

I have a Kent Marine Maxxima and I am very pleased with its performance. It is a 24 GPD and I service my 100 gal and 125 gal with it fine.

Most people buy from one of these two stores and have been very happy with their systems. A lot cheaper then getting a "brand name" system and replacement costs are also cheap.

I bought a 110GPD from FilterDirect off of e-bay and I love it. No problems here. It's a 6-stage RO/DI unit that i got for about 110 bucks. I installed it under my sink and use it for great fresh tasting water and use the DI for my fishtanks.

Yup, me too. Filterdirect gave me an awesome unit, six stage, for $95 + 22.50 shipping. It produces plenty of water and the clear housings on the DI's are very helpful.

Love mine.
