RO/DI unit - Typhoon 5 Stage

Well I forget where the heck the post is so heres a new one.

Someone was asking bout RO/DI units and wanted to know how the Typhoon 5 stage RO/DI unit that I had just got worked.

Well its hooked up and I've done the little steps they instruct ya to do when 1st starting out.

Thus far the unit works great.

Hell my dad is getting into it w/ out saying he is. He built a frame to put the RO/DI unit on, as well as put in a spigot w/ on off for the water so no punkchering of pipes was needed. Drains right into the sink.

I have a feeling He'll be using this water that he < cough.. cough > Isnt interested in, for his Orchids.

I havent timed how long it takes for 1gal but here are my readings if it helps

Tap water = 151 ppm
RO only = 6ppm
RO/DI = 0 ppm

I got the 75gal per day unit w/ the hose connector. with the hook up that my dad installed all i had to do was twist on the connector open the spigot and away it went.
