Testing new setup

I'm setting up my 120 gallon and I wanted to hear from people on what they did to test everything before putting salt water in the tank.

Right now I'm filling up a few 44 gallon garbage cans with ro/di water so I can be ready to put water in the tank this week.

I don't want to waste 120 + gallons of ro/di water just for testing. What did you do?

Can I test with tap water?

Thank you for your help,

Rob

You certainly can test with tap water. Just drain it well before adding your rock and salt water. Don't have any filters or anything either.

I didn't test squat before I filled mine. No leaks so I was releived. I had a RR tank so I wasn't too worried about it.

Regards,

Pat

Mine is reef ready as well. Maybe I shouldn't worry about it then.
