[Killietalk] Re: R/O Question
First of all, thanks to everyone for the answers. In my current setup I do
use warmer water and have sufficient pressure to more than generate enough
for my soft water killis. I am thinking about when I move next year and
get into an area where water rationing may be in effect at various times of
the year and I have to be a lot more efficient. I was trying to figure if
there might be ways to lessen the overall waste water by running another
R/O unit using the waste from the first one that as the feed source..
I figure that there is a "wife rule" as to how many water storage tanks I
can have on the property to store waste and R/O water so I'm just brain
storming and looking for possible ways to improve the fishroom operation
without resorting to a municipal type tank at 40 feet :-) ... This will
be the first time I can design the fishroom from scratch and not have to
work around pre-existing conditions.

Good advice, Bill.
A point often overlooked is that better RO units have an automatic
cutoff switch that shuts off inlet water when the little pressure tank
is filled. This saves huge amounts of water over simpler units that run
all the time, whether producing RO water or not.
I have had both kinds, and the waste difference is enormous.
