I recently moved to a new place and my water quality here is terrible! I am going to install a RO
system, but had a couple of questions.
I have heard that when using RO
water for freshwater tanks it is typically used in combination with some amount of tap water to help buffer the pH. I currently have a continuous water change system set up on my 180 gallon stingray tank, and was wondering what options I have.
Can I run the RO
water directly into the sump as I currently run the tap water, or should I catch it and add tap water to it before adding it to the tank?
If I were to use straight RO
water with no tap water added, how do I buffer the pH?...or do I need to actually worry about it at all?
Thanks for any input you might have.
