What do you guys think of the SpectraPure RO/DI systems? I have the opportunity to buy the unit attached that is used and 4 years old with (2) 20g tanks for $75. I'm guessing it will need filters? Maybe a membrane?

Should I buy a TDS meter to see how well it's working?

you definitely should buy a TDS meter. everyone should have one. how else will you know when it's time to change the filters?
that said, R.O.D.I units are nothing more than empty cannisters with filters in them. it's the extra doodads that set them apart. warranties aren't really that important since there are no moving parts.

My Typhoon II unit came with a built in psi Gage and a handheld tds meter. The newer models also have a built in tds meter. You MUST have a tds meter to know when to change the DI resin.
