    Bulk reef supply is GREAT! Awesome units and they stand behind their gear. Also one of the fastest shipping companies I've dealt with.

    Spectrapure or Bulk Reef Supply. Just make sure you get one with a TDS meter so you can ensure your filters are still performing properly. I like the models that come with the dual inline TDS meters. You can definitely get away with something under $200. I've been using a spectrapure hooked up in the garage with a water line run to the water hose spigot, and the product line goes into a 35 gallon brute trash can as well as a few extra buckets. I will run it all day once a week or so. Waste water goes out to the grass.

    Okay, so I found a Spectrapure 3-stage RO unit that sounds like it will do the job. How does this look to everyone? http://spectrapure.com/RO-RODI/RO-SY...-GPD-RO-System

    Do I really need the extra stages that come with a RODI system?

    To be honest, I stopped using my DI stage years ago....
    0.00ppm water is neither natural nor desirable IMHO, I prefer to have about 20-30ppm

    Thanks for all of the help, Av8tor1! I went with the SpectraPure 90 GPD unit. Now all I need is a faucet adapter. Are there any particular brands or things I should look out for on those? It comes with a garden hose adapter, which is fine for now, but I would prefer to be able to hook it up to an indoor faucet.

    no first hand experience with RO faucet adapters...
    but based on experiences with aquarium siphon faucet adapters..

    avoid plastic and get one that can stay in place.
    Id probably look on ebay for options

    maybe someone who uses one can chime in

    I use a faucet adapter that came with my unit from BRS. http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/chrome...ter-valve.html
    It works great, no leaks, and has a diverter valve so you can leave it in place if you'd like. I remove mine after use because the tubing can get in the way. I may be wrong but if yours already comes with a garden hose adapter you should be able to get a converter fitting from Home Depot or something. Just keep in mind the more points where you are making a connection, the more chances of it getting leaky somewhere.

    This probably isn't the right size but it should be something similar to this: https://jet.com/product/1bf2c55d9e98...FQsRHwoduvcICQ
