Thanks for the offers guys but I picked up a cheap RO/DI filter for my kitchen faucet and then I'm going to use prime with it so I hope everything goes well. Thanks again for the lights powder blue 2 is perfect[emoji108]

Heres a few pics from my tablet.  If you are available Saturday afternoon, you even help me get my new tank off my truck and into the garage.  I could toss you a couple more frags.

well if all goes well it will still be dry in the morning! but I i do need to get a new one way check valve I don't like that this one is spring loaded making my pump have to work harder to push the water up also hurting the overall GPH. not to mention it doesn't even seal all the way... lmao PO[emoji90] !!!4ee8914fb6a58b64c79105940d011d76.jpge2b4e045f6280f8b0de393d524a92180.jpg88b619bcf290de627cbb1d2281681c65.jpg

Welcome! If you're using RO/DI water, you can skip the Prime. Dechlorination and everything else that needs to happen is done by the time the water exits the RO/DI filter. 

Looking forward to seeing how your tank progresses. :fish:

it's only a 2 chamber from petco I can't see it removing everything that's why i add prime. I could be mistaken thou? I would eventually like to upgrade to a 4 chamber + when money is right.

That is probably a smart move.  Especially if you don't know if your unit is effective for chloramine as well as chlorine.  Different water providers use different sterilizing chemicals and not all filters are effective at removing both (used to have to specify chloramine capable cartridges when replacing).  I think there are some folk on here that discovered this the hard way when chloramine started being used more broadly (insert sad face here).

Hmm, probably better safe than sorry then. I'd continue using Prime in your case.

You might consider getting you water tested out of the RO as well as tested in the tank.

RO is tested be a TDS meter which is available lots of places, but I would try a LFS first to see if they will test it for you.

Tank water should be tested for ammonia, nitrites, and nitates. If you don't have these at home, again a LFS would be your best bet.

Good luck!
