    The RO water will be the leak test. Will only add salt after the tank is filled and standing for a day or 2.

    Hi All.

    Sorry I have been very busy and been out the country. I will be updating shortly but just so you all know tank is 3/4 full and will be finished today. Soon that cycle will start.
