  1. February 10th Meeting @ Roy's!

    I hope to make it up there. Sounds like a good time!
  2. RO/DI Unit - How Many Stages? 4,5,6?

    I was there the other day and they were emptying Ocean in a Box out. They took tanks and all. It has been closed every since........😢 Thank you for the RO/DI info! I appreciate the help and will check out Neptune’s Coral.
  3. RO/DI Unit - How Many Stages? 4,5,6?

    Thanks for the heads up! I may still pick up a RO/DI unit to save trips back and forth. This would also allow me to really keep track of exactly what is in the water I am using. Do you know how well Neptune’s Coral keeps up in water quality/filter changes - DI resin, RO membranes, etc?
  4. RO/DI Unit - How Many Stages? 4,5,6?

    I have always bought RO/DI water at the lfs but now Ocean in a Box is closed (maybe for good). I am considering setting up my own RO/DI unit but have never run one of my own. I am in Battle Ground, WA. and not sure what the TDS of the city water is or how many “stages” I would need for the unit. I don’t think they use Chloramine in the city water but I could be wrong. Help me out with your experience and knowledge!
  5. Used RO/DI Unit - Good or Bad?

    Thank you for the quick reply! Do I need to worry about seals wearing out or other parts that may be replaced?
  6. Used RO/DI Unit - Good or Bad?

    I see used RO/DI units for sale periodically. Should I stay away from them or could this be a good way to save some money? Is there anything I should watch out for or check if purchasing a used setup?

    There are a couple on Craigslist right now. One in Salem and the other in Seattle.
  8. Taste your water!

    I thought I was the only one that tasted my water! I have always tasted my fresh top off water just to make sure.
  9. Tank Controller

    I started with a Reefkeeper lite plus and now have the Elite. I agree with programming frustration but finally wrapped my head around most of it. DA was actually very helpful even though I was upfront about buying my units used. They were more than willing to walk me through issues. I also spent a few hours on the interwebs to supliment my knowledge. I now have mine controlling everything during feeding, water changes, heater off/on, PH reading, temp, wave maker alternating off/on with two power heads, three dosing pumps that are dosing at various preset times, etc. The controller really simplified many things, but yes, it was a bit rough to get going/programmed. Once set up though - I am happy and would not go back to no controller.
