This high quality system hooks up easily with your choice of 3 connection types available, and produces 99.9% pure water. Our high quality RO/DI system will ensure that your have the pure water you need without worrying about making a trip to buy it!
- Portable RO/DI System – Portable System: This system is designed for portability, hook it up, get the water you need, then unhook it and store it out of the way. The under sink connection kit allows you to hook it up more permanent manner should you so desire.
- Made in the U.S.A.Built right here in America, you can proudly purchase this system and know you are contributing to the American economy!
- Removes 99.9% of water contaminates – Removes a wide range of contaminates including sodium, aluminum, lead, copper, arsenic, mercury, calcium, phosphate, iron, magnesium, zinc, chloride, nitrate, silicate, cyanide, sulphide, nickel, silver, bicarbonate, manganese, ammonium, barium, and chromium, as well as removing 95-97% of bacteria! The RO does most of the work, removing 95-97%, with the DI filter removing what remains, giving you 99.9% effective removal.
- Color Change DI Filter – Filter changes color to indicate when it is exhausted. Provides a visual indicator that the filter needs to be replaced.
- Ideal for Reef Aquariums – With the DI filter, this system will produce the ultra pure water that most reef aquarists prefer, and will allow you to make water whenever you need it. No longer will you have to make a trip to get water, leaving you more time to enjoy your aquarium or follow other pursuits, as well as leaving more money in your pocket.
- High Rejection Filmtec 75 GPD membrane – This system comes standard with a high quality 75 gallon per day (GPD) Filmtec membrane. Manufactured by one of the most trusted names in the business, you can be assured you are getting a quality membrane that will provide you the pure water you need.
- Pre-Assembled – This system comes fully assembled, all you have to do is hook it up to your water supply and turn it on. In no time you will be producing distilled quality water right in your own home!
- Color-Coded Tubing – Each connection is supplied with approximately 12 foot of color coded tubing, which makes hooking the system up quick and simple and reduces common hookup mistakes.
- Clear Filter Housings – Clear housings allow you to monitor the filters, namely the sediment filter that can darken as it fills up with sediment and the color change DI filter that will change color as it is exhausted.

We also strive to offer the highest quality filters at hard to beat prices! System comes with 1µ (micron) sediment, 1µ carbon block, and color changing DI filter.
- How Does A Membrane Separate Substances?
- Reverse osmosis uses a membrane that is semi-permeable, allowing the fluid that is being purified to pass through it, while rejecting the contaminants that remain. Most reverse osmosis technology uses a process known as crossflow to allow the membrane to continually clean itself. As some of the fluid passes through the membrane the rest continues downstream, sweeping the rejected species away from the membrane, in a concentrated brine reject water. The process of reverse osmosis requires a driving force to push the fluid through the membrane, and the most common force is pressure from a pump. The higher the pressure, the larger the driving force. As the concentration of the fluid being rejected increases, the driving force required to continue concentrating the fluid increases.
- Reverse osmosis is capable of rejecting bacteria, salts, sugars, proteins, particles, dyes, and other constituents that have a molecular weight of greater than 150-250 daltons. The separation of ions with reverse osmosis is aided by charged particles. This means that dissolved ions that carry a charge, such as salts, are more likely to be rejected by the membrane than those that are not charged, such as organics. The larger the charge and the larger the particle, the more likely it will be rejected.
