So i used the conversion on fishfriend.com for calculating my CO2 in my well water since my system won't last long at all with 0tds. pH of water going into the RODI is 6.3, i know already a bad sign. the alk on my hanna checker blinks 300, Yikes!! so it is telling me 252ppm of CO2 in my source water. So it seems, a degasser would be a good thing for me to have but i am wanting to avoid any additional pumps. Is a degasser really worth the hassle of making it and running it? Any suggestions on what i should do?
