fire water & ice have the mightymite
Can produce about 40 gallons a day.
Easy to set it to run and fill up a tub for a few hours, then turn off valve for water changes,

I have a PWC 5 stage RO unit.
After 6 months I had to replace the membrane, ppm was up to 42 and my water out of the tap is 58ppm. imo membranes from PWC are cheaply made.
Now I have a Dow Filmtec membrane and I have a TDS of 3ppm, I wonder how long it will last.
I added a cartridge for increasing the alkaline level (adds calcium and magnesium) thats connected to my fridge. Also have 2 other outlets for normal RO water and DI water.

RO/DI filters separate everything from water. All dissolved solids - dirt, calcium, et al - exit from the waste water point. Pure H2O (0 dissolved solids) flows from the other point.

Where does the waste water come from?
Sorry. RO stupid here.

I noticed that using too small of the filters for the sediment and carbon dramatically increased the time and also increased the waste water some. I already bought too much 1um filters... I'd stick with 5um sediment and carbon blocks.

Depends upon the membrane you're using.
If you've got a cheap one? You're likely going to waste a ton of water.
Most efficient membrane = most expensive.

I am under the inpression that RO units create alot of waste water.
For example, 1 gallon RO creates 5 gallons "waste" water?
Is that true?

|morgan||I paid ú30 / 48 USD for mine and it works perfect. 3 stages of filtration gives me 12ppm with zeros on gh and kh. Not too sure if im gonna expand to a add on DI filter, as my fish / shrimp breed fine without.|

|ravensgate||I think hubby ordered from Bulk Reef Supply, it was a 3 stage unit they had on sale for like, $140 I believe. It's not hooked up or out of the box even...Christmas gift and all|

|Lisa816||Just wondering which RO unit you ended up ordering, and if you got it hooked up yet, how is it working? I'd like to get one for Christmas too and not sure which one to get.|

Trust me - it's better to feel dumb than to actually make a big mistake when something simple can be avoided.
That's what's great about TPT. Always easy to find an answer or get an answer regardless of the issue.

|ravensgate||Tis true, tis true. But sometimes I REALLY feel dumb after the answer is revealed. LOL! Thanks for the heads up on that unit Jake, you are AWESOME!|
