shocking mate  ;) TMC is it?

Nice, wonder what's getting rid of it in your system then.  You running an algae scrubber or anything?

Of course finest TMC quality lol , nope nothing else , running a bit of phosphate remover and a large skimmer which is producing loads of stinky skimate

Nope not needed. you can simply connect the RO unit to a tap when needed.

Yes thats the tank I am talking about. In my store they only have them with this storage tank, my question is do I need to have one as I do not intend to install the ro unit under a sink and it is only to be used for my aquarium water.
The one I bought at the car boot didnt come with a storage tank.
Thanks for the reply

Hi there

I’m not sure what you mean by small round tank? Can you post a pick of the unit and what you mean?

Hi everyone,
Just need a bit of advice. I  have just purchased a 5 stage reverse osmosis unit at a boot sale.
I have replaced all the filters, membrane etc, I am trying to see how it all connects up,  I think it is correct but when looking at one in a display in a store I see that they all seem to come with a small  round tank.
If I use it without this tank is it ok, and can I just turn it off at the tap when I have finished.
Would rather ask than end up not producing RO water. I have a meter to check the end product.

I added the Clarissa 3000 filter roller a few months backs and that does give you gin clear water

I use the oxydator it didn't really make much difference with making the water crystal clear like carbon does

It's weird,  you either get people saying it's absolutely amazing, giving 'gin clear' water or that it did nothing...



I have turned my UV off as I'm sick of it electrocuting me every time I dip fingers in

shocking mate  ;) TMC is it?

and haven't run carbon or purigen for a while . Still perfectly clear with no yellowing in the water .

Nice, wonder what's getting rid of it in your system then.  You running an algae scrubber or anything?

Another thing that worked well for me is coral snow! not cheap but does clear the water ( after the initial cloudiness ) very well!

Ah, yeah I do use that already actually.  Did you know you can make it for pence?  It works exactly the same.

For me though it gets rid of murkyness but not the yellow tint, maybe I need to increase the dose.
