Hands down. 4-stage 75GPD RO/DI value PLUS package from BRS(Bulk Reef Supply). Bought one a few weeks back and has been a breeze!

Oh yeah forgot to say. The "plus" package comes with a built in TDS meter, a built in pressure gauge and a membrane flush kit, plus attachments for the sink/faucet

Agree with Dans180, but 5 stage if you can afford the couple extra bucks. Super easy to set up even if you don't hard plumb it... I put it away after every use. Go BRS all day long, the real cheap ones are, well, real cheap.

By the way benamayer, I was just checking and the 5 stage is $10 cheaper than the 4 stage. What's the difference between 4 and 5 stage?

Sure you were looking at the 5 stage plus? It's the one with the TDS meter, membrane flush kit, and pressure gauge...It's normally around $200, get in a group buy and it's around $175...

Yea, you're right. I wasn't looking at the Plus one. 5 stage Plus is $199 and 4 stage plus is 169. How do I get into a group?

I'm pretty sure the last one just ended on Friday. Keep an eye out for a thread on Group Buys, as they do get announced...
