Water storage

Hey everyone. What is the best method of storage for rodi water? I've seen alot of people using brute garbage cans or glass aquariums. Is this the preferred method so not to have any tds added back into the water from a cheap garbage can?

Basically yes.

Food grade containers are "best" for safe measure... Any plastic trash can / plastic container is probably fine, just swap them out once a year to be on the safe side? I've heard of RO water slowly eating away through plastic seals in pumps... Over the course of years...


If it were easy we wouldn't be here

Anything that's rated as grade 2, I believe that is what the number is for food grade plastics.

Brute cans are fine. Many reefers use these. Lately I've seen 55 gallon, food safe drums, become readily available. Price is right and they have a nicer lid situation. I've been using the same brute barrels for years, if I had a re-do I would have gone with the other barrels.
