    I am finally sinking some money into a RODI system. I am just tired of going and getting water, and although I also need a new protein skimmer, this irritates me more. So what do you recommend?

    I've had two over the time I've been in the hobby. A generic one that had issues, and a BRS one that I have been very happy with. Personally, I would recommend the BRS one.

    +1 Northstar and Fast. Also, with BRS, you get the customer service that comes with the unit. WHen I ordered mine, the auto shut off was missing a part. Emailed them and within a few days, had a replacement part. Not sure you would get that kind of service off of eBay.

    And Fast, Shame on you for not texting!!!!

    WTF? I am up at 2:30am and working by 4:00. No one in their right mind is up at those hours, and if you are you are too drunk to remember any way.

    EBay is fine as long as you research the seller I've had my ro/di unit for a year now and never had problem with it

    thanks all. I cant do the water runs anymore!! Way to expensive. At $10/week I have spent at least 1500 bucks in water. What a RODI system that would have bought.

    I have a Buckeye Field Supply and an old Coralife unit. Like them both, the Coralife unit is about 20 years old.

    remember to check out how much the replacement filters and membranes cost. i bought an airwaterice typoon 3 comes with a autoshut-off value. i think it'll be the best investment besides a ato.

    I am planning a group buy soon, sign up on BRS for an account and send me your info. I will include you, which may bring the price down some as well.
