I have one on order. I talked to another producer who has one and he said Ray told him to run a 10/2 with ground for the electric wire.

I have one, Ray told me it pulls 19 amps if that is what you need to know. I wired it with 10/2 w/ground which is what wire he had coming out of it was anyway. I am about 40' of wire from my breaker box, so that should carry full 30 amps.

Here is some pics of unit. I had another member to ask for pics and will post some. I meant to post pics of the wiring. I mounted a aluminum baked enamel box in the wall and put a 220 female 30 amp recepticle in it. One the RO, I put a male 30 amp recepticle on the wire that is aprox 6' long that Ray wired into RO.

Thanks guys I talked to Ray. It's a Marathon Farm Duty 5 hp. 22.5 starting amps and 19 running amps. I am running wire 325 feet so I will be using around 1/0 aluminum not sure if I will use overhead cable or underground udb.

Here are some more pics. I used pex for everything and have valves to control where flow goes and valves that are down lower are to test concentrate or permeate.

Brandon and Jason,
I like this 500 GPH unit from Ray. I think If I were to buy one this would be the unit. Brandon, don't tell me you were up here to pick this up and did not come and visit:)?
Your installation looks good. This is going to cut down on wood consumption and boiling time too.
Regards,
Chris

I just redid some plumbing in a house that was 3/4" pex and the previouse plumber installed a filtration system using the same elbo insert fitting and they cut the flow down by 1/2. I would go with full flow.

Chris,

I was up in August I think. How far are you from Ray? It was 800 mile round trip in a day, so it made for quite a long day.
