Marine Depot Ro/di Unit

Does anyone have this or know anything about it? I'm assuming the RO/DI part is fine, I'm wondering about the TDS meter that's already on it. Does it work/do you think it would be accurate? Should I get an additional TDS meter just in case?

I have a buddy that got that exact same unit on amazon - and he loves it. He uses it for reef tank freshwater top offs and said it takes about 20 minutes to fill a 5 gallon bucket for top-off.

I prefer hardwired ro/dI units but the portable units are pretty cool too.
Yeah, you seriously get the most for your money with it. My parents have the hardwired RO unit in their house, it’s definitely more appealing to the eyes lol. Mines not too big or heavy though so it’s pretty easy to use.

What exactly does "hardwired" mean in terms of an RO/DI unit?

I just meant that the RO unit is tapped in to the cold water line and is not easily movable once installed. The portable units linked by AquaticJ and I hook up to the faucet and can be attached/detached as needed.

Thanks! I worry that I won’t have a place to keep one permanently under a sink & I also have no idea how they really work

It’s just a water filter, connect a water line to it, water goes through and gets filtered, then comes back out.

I don't know why I'm just seeing this. But I more meant I don't know how the hardwired RO/DI units work. How to hook it up, what would be required to hook it up, etc.

Mike might be able to give you better clarification, but usually its connected to a water line and gravity filled into a tank, which is connected to something like this that you see on peoples kitchen faucets. The people before me had one so this thing isn’t connected to anything anymore.
