Thanks guys.If i'm honest right now a RO set up doesn't really work due to the time and hassle making up your own. Buying the saltwater and RO in and having it delivered to my door works alongside my family and work commitments.I'm also concerned with the amount of wastage a RO unit causes especially being on a water meter plus the maintenance and replacement of filters etc.Are you able to give me any information or a run down on how you create your RO water, how long it takes, amount of wastage, when you add the saltwater, how long you have to leave it before adding it to your tank, making the necessary changes to the salinity if required, how often you need to change your filters, clean out the equipment, had any leaks with it needing to be left on overnight or whilst at work Right now that all sounds horrendous when i can just pop home and the water will be there and i just need to siphon out the old and replace with the new.However, if i had to collect the water from the LFS every 2 weeks then i would really be considering it.I'm not saying its a definite no and i may change my outlook on RO set ups in the future. I have seen on youtube that buying RO and saltwater from LFS is a massive newbie error and you soon change your mind haha
Just had a quick look on their website and for 100 liters a month would cost approx £3.50 seen the unit as its beside motorcycle shop i use in Newcastle. Definately an option for smaller tank owners. Thanks for the heads up.
Will do,Am I correct in thinking most RO units give you 2-4 TDS unless you add additional stages like a DI Resin Cartridge?
Not easily without buying a load of test kits or submitting a sample for ICP analysis (£££). That's why it's best to just aim as close to zero as you can.If the shops displays are good that's a good sign The reason I'm wary is one of my LFS were selling 'RO' water with a TDS of over 100.
Yeah that spotless water recommendation is bang on 3.5p a liter!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Similar experience, not far of tap water reading... You can get a handheld TDS meter relatively cheap which will give you a good indication.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
