Love the extra water concept. The fire escape storage must get tough in the winter, got to knock off snow first...

Yeah it does. Thankfully we only get a few snowstorms in NYC winters. I learned the hard way not to leave pumps outside.

Thanks for posting. I'm looking to get started and not having a basement puts me in this same position. I'm subscribing so that hopefully you'll take us on a step-by-step on getting into the Triton method. Please be very detailed.

Lisa DiMercurio - 3 years ago
I'm also considering changing to Triton but have to see how much it costs
ReefingwithO
ReefingwithO - 3 years ago
I can tell you it was a lot less than ZEOvit. ZEOvit cost me over $1200 the first year including the reactor. Triton is less than $500 and that includes budgeting for 4 ICP test a year at $50 each.

Great video boss but isn't 90 psi a bit to high for your RO/DI System..?
ReefingwithO
ReefingwithO - 3 years ago
I don't think so. Why would 90 PSI be too high. It still produces 0 TDS water and BRS produces the best canisters out there. These won't crack or break under 90 PSI - Maybe some other manufacturers will.

1. I found your channel. Yes!
2. I am as well an appointment reefer. I feel the pain, I don't really have room for an rodi so I have to buy water.

Great video once again but I wanted to know how far is the distance of the water being pumped away at its furthest point roughly in that RO/DI tubing? I think with the mag5 that I have I could get water to my tank with that tube and it'll help with w/c. If I could get maybe 15-20 ft out of it id never carry another bucket.
ReefingwithO
ReefingwithO - 3 years ago
I ordered 32 feet of tubing and I think I'm using all of it. I wish I had gone larger to 1/2 tubing.

Now it makes sense. It is a chore for you. "Daddy can I help" said no kid ever lol. The things we do for our reef tanks

Great video lovely to see how others cope with this. I own a coachhouse so my pressure is good, I have a large storage room; RODI under the sink plumbed in permanently with auto shut off, piping through the wall to a brute bin which has a [aqua medic external pump] on it and heater this can circulate the water and also has plumbing through my ceiling to auto water change. Lost around 20gallon through leak testing haha

ReefingwithO I only have a 45 gallon cube and it costs me £5 a week on a water change plus another £2.50 on ro top ups so pretty cheap really I would say alot more on a system like yours
ReefingwithO
ReefingwithO - 3 years ago
What size is your tank and how much does ready made salt mix cost? I considered that when I had a smaller tank but it wasn't worth it in the long term.

Love your tank and videos. I live in an apartment but still haul a 5 gallon bucket to do WC. My tank is only 33 gal so I only change 5 gal at a time. My friend was able to install my rodi under my kitchen.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that does it. Takes some creativity sometimes but we get to enjoy the hobby just as much as anyone else.

Im in a similar boat. With a smaller system I use the python to pull water out and use a 10gallon Brute to mix. I also keep 10g rodi on hand in Hedpack containers.
