1.CaCO3 to desired KH.
2.NilocG GH booster to desired GH

The system you picked just so happens to have connectors that I don't like.
The price is right though.
You could use it in bathtub.
Get a connector to remove shower head and connect hose.
If something does leak it is contained.
Fill up a Brute can on wheels.

No, it isn't true. The EI method, like any other method, starts with water with a GH and KH that are in the range that is adequate for plants and fish. EI does recommend small dosages of GH booster at water changes, to keep enough magnesium in the water for the plants. But, that doesn't mean ignoring the lack of other minerals due to using RO/DI water.

You can mix tap water into the RO water to get the desired Param.

Hoppy is correct, I neglected to mention this point.

KH can target .5 - 1.0dKH
GH could be between 4-8dGH depending on how you dose/WC's

Was hoping you would reply-

Will use those products, anything u recommend is what ill use.

So when i get the RO ill buy that to
and yes planned a brute can as well :cool: good stuff.

Appreciate the help, also, out of curiosity- how come you do not like the connectors? cheaply made? maybe i could modify them somehow.

That is the smallest Ro unit you can get. Not a fan due to the fact it isnít easy to service. The standard Ro/Di mounting is much easier to change out the cartridges. As one grows in the hobby you learn you want to Ro membranes and two Di
The problem that drives the use of Ro systems is that the water in many communities changes during the coarse of a year. Example with all the rain this year water companies have had to set up their use of chemicals to handle it.
A well maintained Ro/Di system keeps you base water the same thru out the year.
