having an issue with brown algae in the SW
tank. it went but now come back with attitude and taken over the tank. all levels seem to be within range but nitrates a little high. i think its the tap water. our local fish store doesnt sell RO
water, so i think an RO
unit is probably needed. however, we invested too much into this tank too quick and cant justify yet another $150+ on a dedicated system. not right now.
my question is though, and it is more, curious than anything, but when i lived in TN, my EX mother inlaw, invested in this whole house water system. basically was a large canister filter in the basement the main water line went to. had various medium in it and a salt bin. i dont remember the make now, but i do know, it was an amazing bit of kit. (fun to overflow the washing machine with soap suds... apparently, so i heard...) anyway. i believe it was just basically a reverse osmosis system. i was wondering if anyone has something like this and knows what water quality it gives out. if this would work. could justify that as would be the entire house then. always wanted another one, if it would work for the tank too, maybe worth investing in. i know it was a huge bit of kit, not just a screw on filter. stood about 4 foot tall. any one know what im talkin about or have knowledge on this?
