So while I was sitting waiting for my tank to cycle I kept reading about RODI systems and how they help from adding elements to the water that I may not want building up over time. I was also getting kinda sick of mixing in water conditioner and hoping for the best . I was looking at the space required and the cost of setting up such a system and was not really digging it. However i happen across a great deal on a mixing station and RODI system. It is fairly compact and works great. It saves me so much time vs mixing out 5 galons at a time. or even the 20 gallon totes. Plus it came with python line that i can run from the mixing station directly into my tank.
