    Made by Kent Marine.
    Has everything you need to connect it up.
    Just drill a hole.

    Can do this one at R140.00

    And have two spare of these.
    You will still need to buy brackets to mount them and you will also need the nipples that fit onto the end for the R/O piping.
    Place over the road has an R/O shop and sells the missing parts.
    Think they go for R90 each at http://puritech.co.za , so can do the same.

    Was the ones on the bottom I was keen on, any advantage of the Kent Marine one?

    Is this Puritech or another place?

    Suppose it is just the name and the shape that makes it a bit different but end of the day it should work the same.
    Place over the road is a new R/O shop that opened up in Farm City, little R/O shop that sells odds and sods.

    You can also try the sponsor in the same complex as Puritech.
    Believe they also sell them for twice the price.:whistling: and are open today.

    I'll take those two off your hands if that's ok? Will pop into the RO shop and get the rest of the bits :)

    No worries.
    R/O shop should be open today.
    Not ventured out of the house yet... so guessing.

    PM me and I will give you my address and stuff.
