Description

Enjoy unbelievable function in the compact design of the Aquatic Life RO Buddie Four Stage Osmosis System. Designed to provide a reliable source of economical filtered water, this system is available in a 50-gallon size to meet your aquarium needs. Using a membrane filter cartridge in conjunction with carbon and sediment cartridges, it works to effectively and efficiently remove harmful substances from municipal water—including heavy metal ions, dissolved solids, chlorine, and particulate matter—making it safe and suitable for your vibrant fish. It also includes the mixed bed resin cartridge, which removes the remaining total dissolved solids from the water, with a color-changing resin that makes it easy to see when it’s time to change.

Key Benefits
  • Sediment and carbon cartridges are up front and easy to replace; membrane housing accepts standard 11 3/4-inch cartridges.
  • Also includes the mixed bed resin cartridge, which removes the remaining total dissolved solids from the water.
  • Small footprint of this unit makes it easy to place under cabinets or in limited spaces.
  • Faucet adapter makes it easy to connect to standard garden hoses and comes with 20 feet of tubing to plumb.
  • Included mounting brackets keep the unit secure and including membrane housing wrench makes removing the cap easy.
What's Included

4 stage osmosis system, faucet adapter, membrane housing wrench, mounting brackets and 20 feet of tubing.

Precautions

DO NOT leave the RO Buddie unattended during use. Use care not to over tighten the threaded connections – in particular the elbow connections.

    Used for over 5 years niw

    By on

    Hi, I have used a RO Buddy with DI and booster pump for over 5 years now. I use a 100 gpd membrane. I fill a 30 gal food safe trash can in about 6 hours. I do top ups and water changes to my 125 gallon tank with 50 gallon sump. Saltwater coral fish tank. Love this esystem!!!! Just have to add buffer for top ups and salt for 30 gallon water changes. System works great. Change carbon and other filter cartridge every 6 months. Did buy DI cartridge 1 time that was 1/2 yellow when arrived. Chewy asks no questions if something like this happens they replace. Best customer service ever. That was the only time I had problem with DI cartridge.

    DI cartridge not worth it

    By on

    Got this in the mail this week, set up is easy, water goes from 176 tds down to 0 tds as it should. Problem is the DI resin cartridge lasted for 14 gallons before it changed colors and was depleted. 14 gallons. That’s just ridiculous and unacceptable. Would be 5 stars if the cartridge lasted as it should

    Easy system small output

    By on

    This rodi system is easy to assemble and looks like cartridges are readily available. It is plenty cheap so that is good. I keep freshwater fish so I knew I don’t need to produce a lot of water but this thing is really slow. It gives you a small flow bordering with trickle. So there is this bras part that you can buy in hose section that lets you shut it off. Otherwise the unit doesn’t provide a shut off valve.

    Too much waste water

    By on

    I get about 1 gallon of filtered water to every 4-5 gallons of waste. I will have to buy the smart buddy system to add another 65% which is another $129 at best. Be prepared to buy an additional RO membrane or the smart buddy system.

    Just what I needed!

    By on

    First the product arrived very quickly which was exiting. I have three new tanks I needed water for and this RO system is a great. It's easy to hook up and I already have two of my new tanks set up!

    Worth it, especially on sale.

    By on

    Works just as described, I have well water so it is very crucial to me now as I have naturally an off the scale basic PH. Have two 55 gal. Drums specifically for RODI water, and as stated, it takes a heck of a long time to fill, but it’s worth it for healthy, thriving fish.

    Great product for it's price

    By on

    Works as expected, took about 3 days to fill my 125 gallon with 50 gallon sump to operating level. Water comes out under .25ppm ammonia and about 4ppm out of tap.
