    Hi there, I have an home Ro unit which I using for my tank, without the storage tank. My question is can I use the storage tank on the system for extra water storage?

    what water do you want to store ro water? or use it to increase the water volume of your system by plumbing it into the main tank?

    the storage tank you using has a rubber bladder which pressurises the water on delivery....
    unless you using de-ionising resin after the tank, then no, as the rubber leaches into the water
    if you havent got a de-ionising chamber call me or pm me and arrange to get you one;)

    I do not compute?:(
    without the storage tank - can I use the storage tank
    You do not have one - you do have one?

    Anyway
    Can use standard 20L white drums. Or any container or drum. I use a 90L green JoJo drum. But cannot store RO for long periods. I use what I have up every week. And make new RO every weekend.
