    You must have a high flow R/O unit Joe, that must be nice!
    Mine would take a long time to water each plant direct from the R/O machine, it hakes roughly 2 1/2 hours for a 5 gallon pail of R/O from my machine.
    Also, the water from my R/O machine is very cold (about 50*F) is it OK to use water this temp on plants? I always assumed it could send them into shock so I always let the water get to 70*F before I use it on the plants.

    actually mine is very slow but has a 3 gallon pressurized tank that it fills up(came with it). My tank sits on the concrete basement floor and the water is quite cool, but none of the plants have ever complained, including the dozens of lowland plants.

    I noticed today at the Home Depot you can get an Ortho sprayer with a 5 year warranty for 17 dollars.[/QUOTE]

    As my sprayers seem to last about 1.5 yrs before breaking.

    I like my recoiling hose from ACF greenhouse supply, my felco2s', and I think the best handsprayer on the market is the Spraymaster, by Consolidated Plastics, Inc.
    its a chemically resistant, high volume output, adjustable spray pattern handsprayer with a 5 year warrenty.
    Peace

    Goldtrap have you replaced your carbon filter or R/O membrane? This will be way cheaper than splurging on a whole new system.
    Have you ever used a "Flush kit"? Mine came with a flush kit which is supposed to remove the deposits on the R/O membrane. Of course, if yours is clogged you'll need a whole new membrane. But when you replace the two filters just add a small "ball valve" to the output of your R/O (that's all a flush kit is) so you can stop any "good" water from being produced for a couple gallons every month or two and this will blast the deposits off the membrane and lengthen membrane life. Or so the documentation says...

    wouldn't you have to force clean water back through the RO filter to clean it in that way? It doesn't sound like a bad Idea for those with pressurized tanks though. just remove the input line to the membrane and the tank should for filtered water backwards through the membrane.

    Still can't figure out how yours works though?
