Default Leader MicRO

Has anyone seen one of these units yet? Noticed it in their catalog they sent out a week or so ago and just got the new Bascom's catalog today which has the prices in it (seem very reasonable). Can't find many details on it other than it comes with one or two membranes, runs on 220 volts, and is compact size. Wasn't really planning on adding an ro anytime soon, but that caught my eye. Nothing on leaders website, I guess I'll have to call them to get the scoop on it. Wondering if anyone saw it at Verona last weekend though? Didn't make it over there since I ended up in the ER with appendicitis

Nothing on Leader's website. Bascom's has them on their website under the reverse osmosis category. $2975 and $3475

And a pic of leaders 2017 catalog is attached here.

Didn't get a chance to call today. Looks like stainless pumps and pretty basic setup in the pictures.

I seen the ro at my local Leader dealer and also at Verona . Very small footprint but what was interesting ( I hate to go here but ......) is the high pressure pump. Small and compact and looked like some kind of multistage pump. I didn't get any specs on the ro .

I attended the unveiling at Bascom's probably a month or 2 ago at a seminar. It seems like a really good alternative for the very serious hobbyist who is growing, I believe it was expandable but don't quote me. Definitely a great looking rig, with a friendly price tag.

Might want to move soon if your interested. I heard at the WMSPA winter institute this weekend they were selling well and may already be in limited supply for the upcoming season.

Thanks. I just picked up the cream machine that was listed in the classifieds so I think I'll call it enough for major new equipment purchases for this season.
