    Well, just about 10 full months later and my filter direct ro/di is still running great! I haven't had to change out any filters yet. It's still reading 0 on the TDS meter.

    I'm going to get one from filter direct, I think. Can't beat the price! Hiker, you said in the other thread that you use rubbermaid container for holding your water... from there, does it go directly into your sump? just wondering how you have it set up. :)

    I have mine ro/di unit set up in the basement and the rubbermaid tote is just a holding container I use for water changes and top offs. My DT is on 1st floor.

    Here's a pic of mine hooked up. The tote is out of the frame, but its on the ground right next to the washer. That was my first use so I'm flushing the system into a gallon jug.

    Isn't Filter Direct the same as purewaterclub?

    I have no idea. I haven't heard that, but I'm not exactly "in the know". :)

    Guys - here are somethings to look for in a good RODI system for this hobby:
    No more than 4 stages (sediment, carbon, RO, DI) unless you have specific water quality issues you want to address
    Standard-sized prefilters, membrane, and DI cartridge
    Brand name, high-rejection membrane
    Specifications provided for each stage
    Pressure gauge after the prefilters and before the membrane
    Thermometer
    TDS meter (handheld or in-line)
    DI bypass
    Vertical DI stage
    Refillable DI cartridge
    Aluminum bracket
    Quick connect fittings
    No water from pressurized storage container delivered to DI
    Flush valve
    Clear housings
    High-quality instructions written in clear English
    Customer support before, during, and after your purchase
    A vendor involved in your hobby

    You'll see that some of the pics above show systems with no pressure gauge, with two carbon blocks although one good block is sufficient, with horizontal DI stages, etc.
