    i use them for replacement filters via fleabay -the ro membrane gives me 96% rejection, and the sediment and carbon filters seem good quality

    Nothing mate, need new filters for it that's all. Was just browsing ebay for them and stumbled on the big units from this dude and thought I'd inform my brothers in salty arms. :thumbup1:

    Good question , I can only think quality . Apart from yours uses bigger diameter piping / fittings so gets better pressure / quality of water

    Apart from that tho mate , no idea how he does em that cheap , I know longevity on different membranes can be an issue ..

    Just realised I havent responded to this dude. My unit is unbeatable, just wondered what goin on between no name and named products. Can't all membranes fit every unit (for it's size)?

    I'd have a look at VYAIR too, I think they're cheaper on big 4 stage units & their service is amazing. They usually send free ptfe tape. Ordered the wrong connector once & they sent me a new one for nothing & a free tape. They go under a couple of names but worth a look.
