RO/DI Unit

I have been buying my RO water at a water store for $.40 a gallon. Im tired of having to haul water back and forth and drive to fill up, so I would love to own my own unit. But there are so many choices. People with RO units...what unit do you have? If you could post the Internet link that would be awesome. And did you self install it, or get a plumber? I'd also like to use it for drinking water as well.
Thanks in advance,
Ryan Lawrence

I have this one. It's a portable unit that can hook up to your garden hose or your faucet. It's the cheapest one I found with the DI and 100gpd. Plus I just make my water and put it away, no pipes to tap into or mounting of anything. Very simple.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

This is the one I have. It hooks up to a garden hose. Little pricey but I like it.

Thanks guys those look like some good ones. The thing is, is that we want one that can be hooked up under the sink so it can be used for drinking as well. Would these work for that?

That's the one I've been looking at, pretty good price and a reputable company. PLUS it comes with the drinking water section!

I had a Culligan ro I'm sure u can add a di to it but the ro it's self I used for discus it had a little 5gal tank that sat under the sink and a separate spot on the sink for the ro water but this was a small one and there cheaper than buying a "fish quality one"
