    Hey All,

    Im looking to fill my tank on Saturday and am sitting with a high probability of not having enough RO water to complete the task.

    Which would mean scaping and live rock wont go into the new DT till the following weekend. :y13:

    And that is a definite :nono:

    So I wanted to check if any of you close by have 200l, 500l or the mother load of 1000L just chilling out doing nothing on your bakkie or trailer ;)

    If you do have and are in a charitable mood to donate in the efforts of the tank going live this Saturday drop me a PM please!

    Many thanks

    Eugene

    was it water tested yet?

    if not I would do the initial test with normal tap water. Then if no leaks (hopefully) then drain and dry. Then use the RO.

    Was at Liaquat's the other day, his big containers are full.. Maybe he can help out.

    I know some okes will shoot me this but.................

    I used tap water to fill and cycle my tank with no adverse effects. To waste 1500 litres of water was a no-no for me.

    I only use RO for water changes and top though.

    @zayd, I know a few guys that have done the same. I'm just not sure how lucky I feel and the last thing I need is to start the tank with a problem. Especially a system this size.

    @HenkHugo is it an easy operation to get the RO from your container up and into one on a bakkie ;p
