  • RO/DI storage container ideas

    Alright guys, I need your ideas.

    Since the melt down, I have kept the tank going, but my biggest problem has been keeping enough top off water on hand. I lose about 5 gal/day in evaporation. And having to hook up the RO/DI unit up everytime I need water is getting old. So I am going to get a float switch and other necessary pieces to keep my unit hooked up so that I will always have water.

    Here's the thing. I don't have a whole lot of room for a water storage container. I am thinking something about 1' wide, 2' deep and 3' high would fit the space. Anyone know of anything that would fit those dimensions?

    Aquatic Ecosystems has some nice ones that will fit in that space:

    I use two of the 18"x30" ones with my tank and they work very well. They have an 11x11x24 or if you can fit it, a 14x14x24 (20g) and they all come with lids, which is nice.

        You can also try US Plastics. I got 2 55g drums from them.

        120 BB w/20g BB side tank, 29g sump, (2) 250w RO III, 14k AC, Bluewave VII ballast, Deltec 851, Panworld 150 return, (2) 6000 Streams w/controller, AC II Controller w/(2) DC4, GEO 618 CR.

        If at first it doesn't fit get a bigger hammer - Beat to fit paint to match
