    i finally pulled the trigger on the SpectraPure CSPDI-90 RO/DI system. $170 to the door, i figured i couldn't go wrong. i was right, the unit comes out of the box ready to go. after a $5 trip to HD for for misc fittings, i was up and running in under 30 minutes. maybe i got lucky, but i'm runing a 4:1 waste product ratio without any adjustments and my tds is reading 0's. great, great, great system. instructions and operation are totally idiot proof. construction quality is sturdy and seems pretty high quality, no cheap flimsy plastic feel.

    if anyone is looking at getting their own RO/DI system, i would highly recommend this one. i couldn't be happier

    Cool.... Whered you hook it up at??? under the sink.

    I think you rent like myself and have been very cautious on messing with plumbing under the sink.

    +1 on the specterpures. I got mine setup yesterday under the bathroom sink. Only glitch was the input line from faucet to unit wasn't screwed in. I little surprise it took my 10 minutes and runs great! I love the inline sensors to test input and output as I also have a handheld for redundancy

    I have their 90gpd membrane and like it so far. The DI resin from BRS seems to be lasting longer, though.

    for three bucks you can get an adapter from HD or Menards that goes from the sink faucet to a garden hose thread (i think its 3/8 to 3/4). all i've got to do is unscrew my aerator on the sink and screw in the black line for my filter. it's a pain that it takes up a faucet but since i rent i didnt want to mess around with my plumbing.
