Rated 5 out of 5 by Mojo6819 Great for small water changes
This unit works great. The first 20-30 gallons will be very very slow but once it breaks in it will produce more then its rated at. This is my first ro system and I give it two thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Volbrewer Great product
I got the 24 gpd 4 stage unit to make dilution water for home brewing. I thought it would do 24 gallons per 24 hour day, but it's more like 24 gallons per 8 hour day. Way more than I need. It's just stoopid-easy to use and it works great. A water analysis showed a tiny amount of bicarbonate (6 ppm), but nothing else. I hang mine on screws on an outside wall, hook it to an outside tap, collect RO/DI water in a bucket and just let the waste spill onto the patio. When done, disconnect, take it inside and hang it there for storage (wouldn't want it to freeze!) Other than a correctable problem with the membrane seal the first time I installed it, it's been problem free and has greatly exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ObscureAllure Nice product for the money
You have to keep in mind when buying this that it is not a super high end product. If you expect to snap your fingers and 100G of RODI water to just magically appear, this isn't the item for you. However, it you take it in perspective - for the price you pay for it, this product is pretty great. I get more than the quoted 50G per day (and I have really bad water to start out with) and my TDS meter reads 0 on output. You have to make sure that you replace the filters a lot to keep the membrane clean, and use it at least once or twice a month... other than that - it's pretty darn efficient. My fish look healthier, my water is way more stable, and I haven't had a single problem tank wise since we got it. (I had MAJOR problems constantly before!) I really think it's worth it for anyone who is serious about their tanks to get a RODI maker.
Also - get the FOUR STAGE! It's worth the extra money, especially if you water isn't that great to start out with!
