    Air, Water and Ice Inc. have excellent deals on Reverse Osmosis filters for your tap water and excellent customer service. In my opinion, R.O. filters are practically a requirement for a successful reef tank.

    Check out their site for the latest deals and accessories:

    HI ,

    I like to think that with all of the money we spent for our diagrams that they must be the best .
    So yes the reef keeper kit would have very good instructions .
     So as an experiment we could offfer  a couple and see how it went I was thinking that a Diy Typhoon would be about $ 59.00 no membrane .
    That way you could pick the membrane you wanted . So all of the parts to build a Typhoon plus the sediment and two coconut carbon blocks for $ 59.00. Add some UPS and you could have a graet project .


    Our instructions for installation and our diagram ( exploded would be included).

    Walter

    One quick question for all of you . Which pump should we use to drive our new chiller . We need 1-3 gallons per minute . Needs to be reliable quiet and capable of only 1-2 psi or about 6 feet of head.
    We are giong to be buying a very large quantity and we don't want to hear that we picked the wrong pump .

    1 to 3 gallons per minute?
    1 gallon per minute OR 60 Gallons per hour.
    2 gallons per minute OR 120 Gallons per hour.
    3 gallons per minute OR 180 gallons per hour.

    One thing to think about would be cost when buying bulk or more bang for the buck.
    Do you have a distributor lined up?
    What type of connections are you thinking about using?

    RIO make a small pump also that I use and never had any real issue with.
    Are you needing an external or internal pump?

    Thanks ,

    That was quick , we used 1/4 tubing with our quick connect fittings . In fact we used a rio . the male thread portion of the fitting when wrapped with teflon fit really well into the smooth plastic hole .
    No we have not lined up a vendor ,as we are still waiting to get a feel for how our customers feel about pumps . The initial run of chillers is scheduled as 100 . We have the materials for 1,000 . So we will probably buy one hundred at first .

    Thanks The h2oGuru
