RO/DI units

Postby richy's reef » Sun 15 Mar, 2020 9:18 pm

Hi people, where is the best place to purchase a RO/DI 4 or 5 stage so i can make my own water? i have seen lots advertised online but they look like they are for drinking water, with a sink tap etc included for half the price of one that says for aquarium use. am i missing something

PSI Filters have long been a go-to supplier for RO/DI gear for RTAW members. https://www.psifilters.com.au/
I haven't spoken to him for a long time, but I remember calling the guy (Pete I think it was) back when I was purchasing and he was incredibly helpful with advising on options.
I note on their site that they do have aquarium rated systems as well as drinking water systems, but I couldn't tell you what the difference is.

I've been getting my RO parts from this eBay seller, for over 5 years. They are responsive and have the best price around:
