I've had this rodi for about a year-and-half. I'll be purifying well water for my 33 gallon and Nano Cube 6. The nc will also be used for quarantining.

First picture is rodi coming out of the box. Second is the stand I built for the storage container to sit on. Just simple 2x4 construction. I want to drain water out of the storage bottom into a bucket.

The trash can is food contact safe and I bought it at Cash & Carry. I drilled a hole and put a three-quarter inch rubber uniseal through it, glued a threaded adapter to a pipe, stuck the pipe through the uniseal and topped it all off with a spigot faucet.

Is the spigot faucet metal of plastic as it looks like brass?

Lol, it does look like brass. It's plastic though.

Ok just wanted to be sure you didn't have something containing copper after the RO membrane.

Hey guys! Need some help here. I took the top canister that sits horizontal on the rodi off and disconnected the hoses from it. I assume this contains the membrane. I'm not sure if I hooked up the hoses right. The round shape end has fittings for two hoses, one hose is blue for the purified, end product and there's a black hose for the waste water. I can't remember which hose goes into which fitting. One fitting comes out sort of from the medial of the cylinder and one comes out of the cylinder towards the outer or lateral side. Help. :confused:

The center fitting is blue product water and the off fitting is black waste.
