Enjoy unbelievable function in the compact design of the Aquatic Life RO Buddie Three Stage Osmosis System. Designed to provide a reliable source of economical filtered water, this system is available in a 50 or 100 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.

How it Works

  • Stage 1- Sediment Cartridge: Incoming water first passes through a Sediment Cartridge, which removes particulate matter often found in tap water.

  • Stage 2- Carbon Cartridge: After particulates and debris are removed from the water, it then passes through a Carbon Cartridge where chlorine, chloramines, and other impurities are removed or neutralized.

  • Stage 3- RO Membrane: The final stage of purification occurs when water travels through the semipermeable thin film composite (TFC) membrane, removing any remaining solutes.

  • It broke before I could even follow the included instructions

    By on

    (Kudos to chewy.com- geez was the shipping fast!) as soon as I took this filter out of the box and read the included setup instructions and began the initial flushing process. Once I unscrewed the cap of the membrane housing lid and placed the membrane in to flush and the tiny 90 degree elbow came partially unseated and now water is leaking all over the place.

    I was going to get one of the high dollar systems, but thought I would give this one a try, could not beat the price and I’m glad I went with this one instead. Saved a ton and it works great!

    Clear, easy instructions to put the minor components together. Was making RO water the same day it arrived. Fast, free delivery. Second time I have ordered from Chewy for general supplies or food for salt water aquarium and dogs. Will order from Chewy again.
