Very convenient indeed...the only thing with that type of set-up is if you don't have a drain plumbed in, you must pay extra attention to setting you're timer. Imagine accidentally setting the timer to come on at 9:00am and accidentally setting it to turn off at 9:01pm instead of am :shock:Jared J said:Only reason I like it so much, is it makes the misting system fully automatic. Misters are on timers and the reservoir keeps itself full with the float valve. I never have to bother with it at all.
Jared, the way you set this up is good, but everyone that is considering doing something similar should read THIS. I've been a reefer, reef aquarist for 5+ years and know these problems all too well. You are using a mechanical device, it will fail, maybe not today, not tomorrow or even this year but it will fail. There are several ways for it to fail.Jared J said:These are an awesome deal and if you have a misting reservior you can couple it with a float valve and it will keep the reservior constantly full. No need to ever fill it again. This Seachem is the one I have and the parts are the same quality as the Kent units for less $$$. You really don't need 100 gal/day, but with the float valve it works great. I only use 5 gal/week but I got a good deal on it.

Most of these ro systems are very similar if not identical. The membrane and the number of stages/micron sizes of the filters are what is important.ED's_Fly_Meat_Inc said:Hello fellow Dendroboarders,
I am getting tired of paying for water for my frogs, and tadpoles. It is time I got an RO system. Can anyone out there give me their opinion on a good one?
Thanks in advance.
