My water is already super soft and pretty clean (TDS 33 out of the tap), but I figured if I'm going to have a BKK tank, I should just do it RIGHT!

Nice, I wish I had soft water like that. Mine comes out around 150 but the filter brings it down to 0.

800?! Holy cow! Mine's at around 400.

I have a Pure Water Club unit and it is awesome. I just love the fact that it's portable in case I need to move it anywhere

I made the mistake of not buying the wrench though at the time. LOL If anyone is buying, do yourself a favor and get the inexpensive plastic wrench, too.

Im using a 3 stage RO , my ppm for the outlet water is 14ppm. Is that a problem ? Do i really need to get 0ppm ?

Morgan, in an ideal world 0ppm is best, however I can never get my rock hard water to that level either. There are a number of people who even mix RO with tap. So no worries.

The unit was a bit interesting to configure (didn't fit a SINGLE tap in my house so I had to go to ACE and buy an adaptor) and I think my water pressure is WAY too high, so I have to barely turn my tap on or water shoots out EVERYWHERE, but it easily fills a 5G bucket with 0TDS water in an hour.

Nice. Now you have perfect RO water for cheap. No more lugging jugs.
