RE: RO units
I purchased my R.O. through SpectraPure in Tempe, AZ @ 602-894-5437 - it
has worked well for me.
I know Ron Harlan in the Los Angeles Killi area also sells them - Sandy
Binder can probably get you his number.
And, That Fish Place in Lancaster, PA sells them at very good prices @
I would ask about the micron size of the membrane, its expected life
considering your tap water conditions and the price of replacing the
membrane and carbon block (chlorine remover) so that you can estimate its
true operating cost. Also, ask how much waste water it creates because
this can have an enormous impact on your water bill. I have stored the
waste water in separate tubs and mixed it with the R.O. water to minimize
A good idea if you have not done it already is to get a free report of your
water qualities from your water utility and you can also ask them for
suggestions about R.O.

Subject: RO units
Can someone give me the run down on RO vs Deionized? I am contemplating
purchasing an RO unit from Debron Aquatics. They have a 50 gallon/day TFC
for $160 or a Maxima 50/day for $230. Are these good prices? The Maxima
has a deionization cart. attached, is it worth the extra $70? Thanks for
any imput. I want to make my purchase within the next few days.
