I just assumed their water would have been perfect,like a reefers dream. Thought they would have had all the tech and skill to condition it first!!........Whats wrong with these guys.What about the dudes in CT,same problem? Oh well, i will just to my NSW nice 'n clean where I get it and no control as to when really,except fort the Parksboard. They dont want us fetching during peak times,otherwise no issuesThat was also a concern. I also like to do my water changes on the weekend, little time during the week.

- this water goes through 12 huge huge drums, each with different filtration media - they also use a floculant that binds with POC's, BEFORE the water goes through to the filtration drums....
AFTER the water as gone through the filtration media it goes to the "sump" area - from there, excess water is pumped via the external "water collection" area (that's where we reefers/members can collect our water from (just have to bring our own hose-pipe and hose-pipe connector)....
