    Finally went in a on very nice used Maxwater 6 stage RODI unit. I need to install it. I have never done this specific task before but I understand what needs to be done and the basics of operation. The RODI unit has a pressure valve in-line with the input. It seems that high pressure(80+psi) = better performance. Currently, I do not have a value for the existing pressure for my house's lines; I would be guessing and hoping for the best pressure, based on location. I have two location options to install this unit. 1. utility closet (12'x8') 2. laundry room (18'x10'). Both have floor drains, laundry room has a utility tub. At first i was leaning towards the LRoom because there are already connections in the existing plumbing (1/2" copper lines) for the H/C knobs on the U-tub. I could also get a faucet adapter and run the unit from the utility tub. The utility closet has the main water line (3/4 inch copper) coming into the house and then directly into the hot water tank input. The UCloset seems like the better option to me because it's the main and holds the best chance of keeping peak PSI from the water main. I was considering doing a sharkbite 3/4" to 1/4" shut off T-valve on that line, instead of a saddle/needle valve (again for performance). The faucet adapter is the most appetizing option because I'm not doing any permanent pipe work, but I feel that this option will have by far the least amount of PSI. Laundry room pipes are smaller diameter, probably still good pressure, but not as easy (or as high of PSI) to do the actual pipe work. Any suggestions?

    I don’t think that’s it either. These are in a low flow area for sure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’m pretty sure something is melting these Purple People Eaters. Any suggestions? They’ve been in that spot about 3 weeks. I’m considering moving them down. Under 5 hours of PC 10k and 10hrs Actinic Alk:7dkh Cal400 Temp: 77 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thank You to everyone that voted!! I live on the East side of Cleveland and it's fairly impossible for me to get any time to come meet people, but thanks again!

    After seeing @crimsonvice post about the battlecoral's battle box. I want to know where people have gotten corals from, online, in the past. Great retailers, bad retailers and everything in between. Do you have a go-to place? Are you cool with paying $25 worth of shipping? Are you willing to spend 4125+ like I've seen to get free shipping? What are the hazards of getting coral online and shipped? How do you deal with the losses? Let's hear it

    Good lord that's a lot of work. I have to live vicariously through people of you chutzpah because I could never commit (read: convince my wife) to do such a thing. nor do I have the space. I look forward to watching this progress

    You’re right, they do give Zero F’s about your pretty coral. My urchin’s like that too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Man, I had GHA pretty good too, not sure why you’re avoiding them, but if you get a good turbo, they are brushhoggs! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What’s the minimum tank size/ water volume for these guys? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
