RO System - recommendations

I am looking at getting an aquarium and I actually think I want to get an RO system installed under my sink before I actually get a tank so I always have good water for my tank. I was wondering if anyone here has installed their own RO unit under their kitchen sink. For those that did, here are a couple of questions for you.

What make/model unit did you install?
Did you find the install easy?
How big of a tank did you use?
What was the cost?

I personally like the ones from AirWaterIce. Great Customer Service, and they will get you everything you need.. Really easy to install.

I have a SpectraPure MaxCap 90. It cost me about $300 bux, and I actually don't have it installed yet, but my 120 is also not running, so it's not a big deal. This unit will push 90GPD under the right conditions, and is consider by some to be the best RODI on the market. I am planning on installing it in the laundry room, where I have just put in cabinets, and a counter top. I am going to cut the counter top, and drop a sink in the the sink base cabinet, and then place the RODI on the wall above the counter top.
here's a pic to show the layout.

wow, that is a monster, I am just looking for a unit to mount under my sink in the kitchen. You should start selling RO water to other reefers after you get that installed.

I will second the filter guys. Excellent service and fast shipping.

Agreed. I could not be happier with the system I got from them.

Most of the RODI units thefilterguys sell are 75GPD. They are great units, and everbody raves about them. since I am setting up a 120, and I want to have about 40g on hand for top offs and water changes as well i went with the 90gpd unit. My container is a 55g Plastic barrel. it's only 24" in diameter, and 36" tall. Plus it was FREE.
