    I lied a little, my boss called and is two hours behind so I got some time. Rodi is pure water, it removes all things like lead, chlorine, pesticide, additives like Floride, then comes out just h2o.

    Yikes! Glad you found the pesticides. Unbelievable what kind of stuff gets in our drinking water (and what's purposefully added). Awesome news on the whole house purification system.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Have a fish problem? Fill out and post this completed questionnaire in the General Aquarium Forum, when you start a new thread.

    Money spent for the test was money well spent.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    The test was free, some girl approach my wife and i in home depot asking for a free water test. I brought them a sample and got the results. I then contacted my grandparents to get the company their unit is through. I called them and had them come out. No pressure sales, people I trust, I like it.

    Wow, I'm surprised the "free test girl" didn't pressure you to buy something after getting your results...they tested in front of you, and gave you the results immediately?

    Is a big concern around my area and they are making a push for public knowledge. They showed me their product, then I found it better and cheaper myself.

    The TDS meters are not thermometers (is that what you meant?) - they measure the total dissolved solids (organic & inorganic substances) in the water. The RO or RO/DI unit removes all the TDS and gives a made water value of 0 and a pH of 6.5. I have to add dGH back in and adjust my pH. My tap water runs anywhere from 240 to 540 TDS pH 8.4 - 8.99, depending on the rainfall or drought conditions. Last year we had a severe drought and my water TDS were consistently 500+.
