Adelaide Members - Reverse Osmosis

Hi Adelaide members,

Just wondering if any of you keep a Reverse Osmosis unit, seriously looking into one and wondering where I could grab one and rough price range in Adelaide.

Thank You.

I have found FSA extremely helpful with any issues regarding osmosis units. When I was running 14 tanks I still only used a small portable unit which cost under $100 at the time. I made about 140 litres a week on average and still only had to change filters 6 and 12 monthly -the membrane was changed after 4 years . i now have the larger system but don't really notice much difference in speed etc.

Thanks for that Ineke, the more I read into things the more I realise that RO units really are a must if I wish to keep healthy shrimp so definitely going to look into one.

      Coming from a pet bird keeping hobby, I can easily back up what jayc said about imports.... not only can you not import animals, you can't export them either. The *ONLY* exception may come between New Zealand and Australia. Some animals can be moved between those two countries. Otherwise though, import and exportation for both countries is banned. I live in the USA.

      Thanks, Simon.  I am a shrimpnewb after all.  My tank has pretty much zero evaporation - it's weird, but it seems to have something to do with not running a heater and the water temperature being the same as the room.  I'm just planning to switch over to the shrimp focused mineralizer with water changes over time.  I'll update the TDS differences I assume will be there.

      This has got rather long and involved, interesting though! Just wanted to remind you that topping up tanks from evaporation will still need pure RO water (not mineralised) though so you will need to keep some Pure RO water aside for that. Simon

      Oh, yes.  Live and learn.  This is, as my wife keeps telling me, a science project.

      thanks for detailed information, it's a shame you can't get any of the new variations, btw my pinto has berries, first time for me as a beginning.
