I've been doing some research but I'd love some input.

So, I'm looking at ways to reduce the output of the ro unit. First thing is reducing the input pressure, hense the 30psi.

Lowering the input just makes the RO less efficient.

Hell no, don't do that.

I've a pump & solenoid I can sell you if you want, they are both half what I paid if I can find them, although I'm not sure the RO is a good idea, open to corrections?!? :)

No prob, just giving some input on the filters, I know nothing about RO water in aquarium use but I've a 40" RO filter & have had to replace more than once from not using it properly.

Personally I don't think you need RO, listen to the rest of the posts in this thread.

Good Luck ;)
