    30 x 8 = 240 pounds right? will your shelfs hold that much weight?[/quote]

    Naut I am having trouble with my Kent I.V. clogging from the kalk and stuff, I am thinking of sticking a bit of a straw up the thing about half an inch to stay above what settles. ;) You have any problems with that?

    Naw it cost me 10 bucks and the shelf is rated for 1500 lbs. Is that the only way you add top off water via the auto douser ?
    I got a adjustable IV regulator for free when my wife went in for some elective surgery. Ill see if I can use it some how depending if I dose with top off or  w/  something like what you have.

    I have noticed the residue but no clogs yet. I had to change the location of the roller or pincher thing because drip rate was to fast or to slow. I wish they used a bigger hose also.

    You should create one and get a patent.

    Nugio that looks cool can you get me one? That thing looks like it would work great.

    My auto top off is separate from the kent IV thing.
    Do a search under float switch or top off and I have some drawing of my auto top off system. I add nothing to the top off water it is pure RO/DI.
