So I'm about to buy myself an RO unit (Whee!) and I'd like some input. Poking around the net, it seems reefers tend to highly recommend SpectraPure, so that's the brand I'm looking at. I am also planning on getting one with a DI cartridge so that when the day comes I finally set up a saltwater tank, I have that available - not to mention it doesn't add much to the cost.
Anyway, I've got two units under my crosshairs and I'd like input from those of you that are familiar with RO units.
SpectraPure MaxPure 60GPD RO/DI - $170.
SpectraPure CSP-DI 60GPD RO/DI - $240.
The differences I see are that the CSP-DI has .5 micron carbon and sediment filters while the Maxpure has a 1 micron sediment filter and a 10 micron carbon filter. The CSP-DI also has a TDS meter built in, but that means nothing to me as I have a separate TDS meter.
So, with that said, is it worth the extra $70 for the CSP, or should the Maxpure be fine?
Thanks in advance.
