Hey Firetech, What are the white PVC things that are on top of the membrane vessel and right after the filter. It looks like there are wires coming out of them.

Now that you have used your RO another year how did it work for you.
You said that you were looking at changing a few things, what did you do and how did it work?

Does anyone know Ray's cost for the 375 unit? I only asked him about the 250.

I'm not sure yet. I just today sent ray a down payment for his 125 hobby unit. He says there is a very detailed manual that he sends along. 2 other minnesota guys ordered the same unit from ray this week as well. Kinda nice for shipping cause one of us will be visiting family 20 minutes from rays place this summer and will bring all 3 back. This so called hobby just never ends.

Hey Sadsams, if you don't mind if I ask what did Ray want for the 125?
Was it electric or gas?
