where to buy ro/Di units

Ok I need to buy an ro/Di unit and had a place bookmarked but at some point it got deleted. Now I don't remember the name of the online store. The ones I was looking at looked good and was somewhat cheap for a unit. I'm planning on checking Craigslist after this post but would prefer a new one. So have at it and shot me some links please

Is there a special filter that removes ammonia from the tap that hooks to it?

If you were looking at something like purewaterclub, I'd keep looking. Get a good unit like the BRS unit, buckey field supply, vertex puratek, spectrapure, or melevsreef (just to name the more common units). BRS probably has the best bang for the buck, especially if you get in on a group buy.

How do I do a group buy? Never done that before I always just buy lol

Will the one Jess posted remove ammonia from tap or is there another filter that hooks up to it?

Maybe ill just call a plumber and have them put a whole house one in.

Purewaterclub was the name of it I figured they would be junk because of the price

RO/DI units will remove chloramine, which is where your ammonia is coming from. They make special chloramine specific units, but mine was a standard RO/DI and did fine with my tap which had chloramine in it.

To get in on a group buy, check the hardware forum every so often. There's generally one every 2 weeks or so on here.
