    Are there such units out there? For owners of nano tanks that do not need a lot of RO per day.

    What is the smallest RO unit available? Are there NANO versions out there?
    Cheaper and smaller version that nano owners can use. Max 10L per day is more than enough.

    It must be cost effective. As in cheaper than getting RO from the LFS

    Small enough to be used in apartment complexes.

    No bulky storage containers.

    I remember seeing one on masa before. Will try and find it when I'm at a pc again. But it was not that cheap. Was small though.

    There's also the Aquamedic easyline unit's (90 and 150). I've seen the 150 before in SA but not sure what would be available now. Price wise you may as well get a waterboy unit.

    You are probably correct with this, and it will be faster and cheaper most probably to get spare filters and membranes locally also.

    yip....buy a waterboy unit,

    nano units and easy line units cost nearly the same....and you will have to wait and wait for the production.


    i fly overseas in 2 months to finalise design for a new machine.....but dont want to say much about it now.....

    How would they connect to a kitchen tap?
    What is the cost of replacement parts?

    we have a host of differant adaptors to make it work......you just need to tell us what you have....however i dislike temporary connections as they always wear down seals then begin to leak....
    permanent connections are way better, but if you cant have a permanent connection....we have adaptors to suit all needs.;)

    those are quite cool, saw em in one of our overseas suppliers catalogue ...
    you could remove that membrane and put a hydronautics or filmtec membrane, change one of the inline filters to a de-ionising one and put it last.....and you'll have a potent little countertop marine r.o.there

    Do you have an outside tap at the flat ? Much easier to just connect it with a hose pipe and fill drums outside. Then the unit is mobile aswell and can easily be moved.
