Hi Jim, Guys.

Im writing to just say thank you for the support and product - some people said "A picture is worth a thousand words", so let me share with you this one ((( my build thread: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2003931&page=7 )))

guys, As I told you on post #97 ((( http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=18739977&postcount=97 )))

I bought the "OCEAN REEF MISER SIX STAGE RO/DI 150 GPD" from The Filter Guys - www.thefilterguys.biz and finally decided to install it.

That's the final result - I place everything in a board:


And that's is detailed description:
1 - 5 micron poly sediment filter - eliminates sediment (sand) and protects the booster pump

2 - Aquatec 8800 booster pump. This pump turns on whenever the the pressure falls below around 45PSI - always!

2a - AQUATEC 8800 Power adapter/transformer for the booster pump, auto-flush timer valve and auto-shutoff switch.

3 - 1 micron poly sediment filter

4 - 5 Micron Matrikx 'Workhorse' - first activated carbon block - gets rid of
chlorine chloramine and some organic chemicals

5 - 0.6 Micron Matrikx chlorine guzzle - second activated carbon block -

6 - 100 PSI pressure gauge. The gauge is located between the output side of pre-filters and input site of RO membranes. At this position the gauge shows when pressure falls, due to pre-filters are clogged or clogging.

7 - firt RO membrane: 75 GPD Dow Filmtec

8 - second RO membrane: 75 GPD Dow Filmtec

9 - Auto-flush timer valve - Upon system start-up and every hour thereafter, the 24 VAC normally closed solenoid valve automatically "power-flushes" the membrane at full pump flow, for 18 seconds every hour. Turbulent water action scrubs organic and inorganic contaminants from the membrane surface, extending membrane life and efficiency.

10 - 8800 AUTO SHUTOFF SWITCH (Pressure Switch) - it turns off the Booster Pump when the tank is full.

11 - Dual TDS meter

11a - first reading of TDS - after the RO membrane - indicating the condition of the membrane

12 - the first of two DI filters

11b - second reading of TDS - after the first DI filters - indication when the resin is exhausted

13 - the second DI filter
