    Was wondering what you guys thought of this unit?

    I know you most of you prefer a unit from

    Should I get the first one, or don't waste me time on it?

    Hey Josh,

    Before finding a wholesale source for my RO units here in the US, I bought several units from Aquasafe. I cant even match that price for all you are getting. Go for it, you wont be sorry in IMHO!

    Thanks Dick. Sometime I see a tank with an RODI unit. Is that something I should look into getting?

    Not in my opinion, unless...

    The tank is to pressurize a drinking water line branched off before the DI resin. So if you were going to make drinking water then yes. Do not drink RO/DI water as it is reported to dissolve calcium from your bones causing early osteoporosis. Drinking RO water is okay because RO water is not totally devoid of minerals. We have terrible well water here in FL (780 ppm of crap and weak coffee colored) we run our water through a 7% hydrogen peroxide treatment plus a separate additional resin chamber, plus a softener BEFORE it goes through our 300 gpd RO/DI unit.

    Well I am glad I asked, because I was thinking of branching off, and doing drinking water from it also. But I will get a tank, before I do that.

    Amphibious,

    I have the unit in the house. The unit will stand about 4 feet tall when it is fully built. No way it is fitting under my sink.

    I was thinking of building a stand over by my tank. But that would mean that the water source and waste line would be 20 to 30 feet in length. Going up a wall, across my ceiling, and down to the sink, and water line in the kitchen.

    Is that a good idea, or should I try to find a closer spot to the source?
