    I have been doing some research on RO/DI filters.

    I saw this KMD eCommerce Corp. PureWaterClub.com

    check it out and give me some feedback.

    Has anyone here at 3reef have any experience with these PureWaterClub RO/DI Units???

    This is the one I have from them,
    KMD eCommerce Crop.

    bought thru their ebay store. I'm not really sure it could pump out 100gdp, but I do mine one bucket at a time. Not to bad for the price and the customer service is pretty good. I have had to order replacement filters and it's been up a little over a year now. :) oh and unless they've changed it, their instructions suck on how to install, so I made it work....

    i have the exact one that you are looking at, the one thing that i really wished that i did was to have a bigger chamber for for the di resiin, giving it has 6 stages of the one that matter the most are the di units, i have mine for around a yr, i gone through 2 set of them, btw 2 x di resin = 1 big 10" housing unit. thats what i figure so far, but i believe that thefilterguy.biz have some really good one. try them too

    If no one minds, I'd like to throw a question in:

    Are there any RO/DI units which do not have to be permanently mounted? I am looking to get one, but cannot permanently mount it yet. I need something I can hook up to the sink for when I need it, but then put away when I don't.

    I have one from them and have been very happy with it for the money. It does exactly what I need it to do. I agree, the instructions are a little shaky, but these things are hard to install.

    I highly recommend them for the price.

    They have them at the site I posted it. Totally portable!


    So, Cuttingras do you give it a go? I was thinking of upgrading to the package with the tank to have drinking water. Therefore, I would be using it on almost a daily basis.

    could I swap out to 1 10 inch Di??? Wonder if this co. offers that upgrade...
    I'll contact them...

    I checked with PUREWATERCLUB they told me that they did not offer a large 10 Di segment for their units.

    I asked them if I could customize and add a single chamber. Still waiting on a reply.

    I am sure their double chamber will suffice thought right???

    jas...get the tank! I didn't and wish I did. I've had mine for almost two years(bout 18 mos) I guess and yeah it's really good I like it anyway....it's just for my tank.

    cuttingras,

    I was thinking of getting the tank, I was reading that a more active RO unit doesn't need flushed! Simply because the water doesn't have time to stagnate and get old within the unit.

    Having the tank my wife and I along with the FISH, DOG, and Cat we will all be drinking clean water every day.

    How long did your filters last cuttingras?
