Commercial tank w/pump and filters

Hey guys,
My work is throwing away the unit pictured below. I was looking for suggestions on how it could be utilized in regards to this hobby. There is a water pump, some pre-filters/RO filters, and water storage tank used for deionized water (DI water). Thanks!

That’s awesome. Incorporate a heater and it’s good water storage.

What was it used for? What liquid was in the main tank?

The water is deionized water, basically RO water.

I would hook up an ro/di unit to it and use it as storage for water changes. That rig cost a pretty penny to put together.

Did you end up getting it? If so, what did you decide to do with it?

Looks like it already has an RO filter, and a tank. Beats the heck outa buying a filter and using a trash can to keep RO on hand. Tell me it automatically stops once the tank is full...
