    Another exciting product to suite your pocket.

    We call it the "Poor Reefers ATU" and that's exactly what it is.

    Takes the standard RO tubing, 2 fitting options and use it 2 ways:

    1) Gravity Fed

    2) Fed from a small pump in your RO tank, just T off the output of the small pump to flow back into RO tank and the other T to the ATU, this way when filled the pump still works normally and also keeps your RO water circulating.

    A poor man will only need to pay R265.00 for this or if his extremely poor then he just needs to pay R145 for the float only and mount it himself :)

    Yes use it from your ro tank. Just get you a very small pump split the flow one to the unit and the other back into tank. If you don't understand I will draw it

    Hi Chris, works the same, it comes with a DUAL mounting option which can also be fitted to a rimmed tank :)
