    I was reading up on a RO thread and you may have suggested a few good turn key residential RO systems to a fellow member. I was wondering if the brand aquapurion 5050p from us water systems is a safe unit. I don't want any leaks to occur down the road. Any suggestions? Thanks. Dan.

    Thanks for the reply. I assume from your comment about the Chemilizer being a fully self proportioning base on flow unit that I can install it after my pressure tank. Just curious - I also just read from http://4pureh2o.com/ who claim to have come up with the 400 pellet feeder that it should be installed after the pressure tank; is that because the dosage shot comes out proportional to pressure? The two good things about them is less floor space taken because there is no chlorine tank to adjust & maintain and they are very simple devices- easy to repair/maintain. As you can see I am having a difficult time deciding. I just want the one that is the most reliable and causes the least grief. Thanks Terry.
    Thw WQA is in Indianapolis in early April. We will ahve a large island there in the back near one of the aqua stages. We supply the majority of the companies that attend the show, but it is still important we attend to visit with many of the people that show there. go to www.wqa.org for full details. The chemilizer pmp is very simple and is fully self proportioning depending on flow rate. It is also very simple, reliable, and cheap. My brother works for a huge company (competitor and customer) and he has the same thoughts. We both like the pellet design, but we also both realize it has technical limitations that are overcome by the superior design of the chemilizer. And since I sell the pellet design system and not the chemilizer, I think I am fairly objective since I am recommending a design that I have no financial interest in.
    You recommended the non electric chlorine pump to take care of my Iron, manganese, & H2S. I think I prefer it to the pellet feeder. Pellets are pretty expensive. Also the chemilizer seems to be a proportional unit so I assume I can place it after my pressure tank and outside hose take off. I would like to avoid chlorinating water going to the outside hoses. Is that correct, can I install it after the pressure tank? Is this unit very loud, it will be in the basement under my kitchen and not too far from my bedroom? Also you mentioned the WQA trade show will be in Indianapolis; do you know the date? Thanks TAM (Terry)
    haha, yeah, the post was ridiculous. Your final post said what I was thinking the entire time. You were the smart one to finally say what needed to be said.
