What do you guys think about this RO/DI system?

I realized that my tap water is already at 20 PPM. Is that good enough for a FOWLR setup?
But eventually i will be turning it into a Reef setup, so i need no nitrate in my water. Do you guys think this system is good. I'm looking for something that i can easily hide. I also want something that produces drinkable water so i can justify my expense to my wife.

Reef Master Reverse Osmosis RO DI Aquarium Water Filter - eBay (item 390073203398 end time Aug-02-09 21:17:07 PDT)

Thanks in advance.

thats a little high but not horrible for FOWLR. Probably see some algal growth. But you still want the RODI unit for everything else in your tap water. phosphates, silicates, nitrates, chlorine, chloramine, etc

i didn't realize that i didn't specify that my tap water is 20ppm in Nitrates. which is what my tank is.
But this RO/DI unit should be fine. Right.

Thank you. it was a pain in the butt. i spent like an hour trying to arrange those rocks, and i wasn't really satisfy with it, but i think it's okay. I had a nicer setup when i was curing the rocks in the middle of the tank.
