Default Who will be using an ro for the first time next year

With not to many posts lately I thought it would be neat to see who was getting an ro for next year. We are hoping to find one but we aren't sure yet.

Nice picture Woodsman. (Todds garage) I read Rays manual a couple times last night. Everybody says their super easy to operate. I'm going to call Ray, not today but after I look at it some more. The manual covers cleaning and storage issues well but nothing about how to hookup tanks and sizes. How does the thing know what tank to send it to. Consentrate or perm.

we bought a Lapierre turbo 2000 600 gph RO.......... Me and my brother knew what was involved with setting up the ro room and tanks, but we have found out that my father and oldest brother were gravely unprepared for this big step. I guess it will be all worth it when we are cutting firewood to sell and not arch wood for the next season.
