I bought into a hype and got a system mostly for clean drinking water but also has RO/DI for tank. I always used TAP for my tanks and have not seen what algae outbreaks look like; never had any algae. I knew water in NYC is great and a lot better than in other localities. From DEP reports it was also a lot cleaner then the federal laws allow.

Anyhow, ever since I got my TDS meter I have been testing the TAP and it never goes over 50. It actually ranges from 37-46 PPM.

Rencently at a local meeting I spoke to Pat Donston of Absolutely Fish (Clifton, NJ) and this topic was touched. I told him that I've always used TAP water etc. and from my tests the TAP water never goes over 50 in TDS. He said that in Jersey their water tests over 300. He agreed that there is nothing wrong with using water with such low TDS and that he'd probably do the same.

Another thing I noticed; ever since switching to RO-DI is that I am having hard'er time controlling high pH. I am not entirely sure if this is related but it conicides with time I started using RO/DI for water changes and RO for all top-offs.

From now on i'll run the water for a minute from the faucet and test for TDS. If the water tests less than 50 I will use it for both water changes and top-offs after dechlorinating it.

I am not saying that you or anybody else doesn't need RO/DI filter; all I am saying is get a TDS meter first and see how badly you need it.

Do I consider it waste of money? NO. My family still gets clean drinking water 3.5 Gallons at a time.
