Description

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.

Instructions

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.

    Not worth it

    By jazz on Mar 13, 2021

    Doesn't change water ph. Local water is high ph this doesn't lower it in the slightest.. seems more like a Britain filter than RO

    Good product

    By LeeHilton on Feb 8, 2020

    Have had it for about 4+ minths now and it works good. Uses a lot of water, its slow to fill and our water here isn't great. Its hooked right up to a sink and goes right into the tank of choice thou. It was easy to hook up, wasn't broke, and doesn't leak. Had a small leak at first but that was due to the sink, and if you try to pull the line too tight it can cause a leak. Both were easy fixes.

    RO water for frogs

    By Jenny on Apr 28, 2020

    The system is pretty easy to assemble using the on line video, though written instructions are poor. I had it working in 20 mins.

    It broke before I could even follow the included instructions

    By Chris on Apr 6, 2018

    (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.

    Great product

    By Discusman on Feb 21, 2018

    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!

    Excellent Product and Price

    By JamieAndMatt on Feb 10, 2018

    Excellent product for an affordable price. Very Fast shipping and Great customer service. No need to waste money on a more expensive RO system. We tested the water and the RO Buddie did everything it claimed. Very impressed!

    Great purchase

    By Slots on Aug 17, 2017

    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.
