[APD] RE: tap water purifier

Hi revance,

I have one of those filters.  It supposedly produces
real DI water, although I haven't tested the filtrate.
 Haven't had it long, but my LFS has glowing words for
it.  The cartridge may not last that long though, I
think depending on what it is removing, so you might
want to run it after your water softener.  But here,
where the water is soft, my LFS says he gets more than
the rated # of gallons from it.  It can filter a
little less than 10 gals per hour.  I use it to remove
phosphorus, which is wicked high here (when I'm too
lazy to cart DI water home from the lab).  Just
remember to reconstitute your water with the liquids
included or some other brand of reconstituter (or
homemade, like I do).  The filter is about 1.5 feet
tall and maybe 6" wide at the widest point, and is
easy to use.  I paid $35 at my LFS (he matches
internet prices).

I was wondering if anyone has an opinion of the "Tap
water purifier" 
made by 
Aquarium Pharmaceuticals. I have very hard water (even
after going 
through a 
softener), chlorine, etc.  Before I have always
purchased RO water from 
grocery store. I just wonder... if it's as good as
they make it out to 
be, why 
do people still spend hundreds of dollars on RO
filters (hence I am 
I am resetting up my aquarium (it has been empty for a
while) with 
discus and 
was wondering if this would work instead of my usual
RO water (it's 
cheaper). Any thoughts?
