    Hi,

    I am looking into purchasing a ro/di system. I was looking at the spectrapure Max/Cap 90 and the bulk reef supply 75 gpd ro/di 6 stage deluxe. What do you guys think about these? Which one is a better system?

    Thanks,

    David

    Never heard of the spectrapure, but I am very happy with my BRS RO unit. They are also top notch in customer service.

    Probably similar end results.. TDS = 0

    you have a good size tank, so you might want to take that into account when sizing the RODI unit.

    the 90g will do 3.75g per hour
    the 75g will do 3.1g per hour

    If you do 10% water changes, it will take you 4hrs to make enough RODI with the 75g versus little over 3hrs with the 90g. ( unless you have a big holding tank, I make my water as I use it ).

    you will be happy with either unit, both seems to be reliable.
