    What is the pressure in your house right now ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    That's not too bad considering the max pressure (plumbing codes) in most areas in North America is 85 psi. Back in the day, I had tested some homes which had a little over 100psi.

    I would suggest a PVR just off of the main shut-off along with a expansion tank.

    Yep, just to confirm the issue I built a pressure gauge to test the static water pressure. I read 97 PSI. While I had the gauge connected I started the washing machine then stopped it. While it was filling the pressure dropped to only 90 PSI and when it stopped it hammered to 120 PSI. Not good...

    I have a plumber coming in the morning to give me a cost estimate to add PVR.

    Update...

    Several days later and the tank is full of saltwater. Salinity is at 1.025 water temp at 79 F. I will start the cycle next weekend. I want to let the tank stabilize for the week and make sure the equipment is all functioning properly.

    I also need to tweak my ro system a bit. I really burned through the DI resin. I got about 150gallons out of it before it depleted.

    WOW, only 150 gallons ???

    Have you double checked the TDS in your tap water and the TDS coming out of your resin cartridge latley ? What type of carbon are you using in your system and did you flush out the system after adding the new carbon ?

    I have 100 to 140 TDS in my tap water and I have been using the same DI cartridge for over a year now making about 40 gallons of water a week. Still coming out at 0 TDS.

    Yeah according to the meter the incoming tap water TDS is about 320ppm and 11ppm after the ro. That's about 96.5% rejection.
