The 100 Gallons per Day (gpd) Aquatic Life Reverse Osmosis (RO) filter is an effective and simple-to-use way to remove impurities from tap water.

Aquatic Life RO Filter

Claims
Aquatic Life claims that this RO filter will remove harmful substances, such as heavy metal ions and total dissolved solids, from tap water.

Tests
The Aquatic Life RO unit was easy to install, and I had it up and running in a few minutes. I took readings for total alkalinity and total hard-ness using test strips on the tap water and then on the reverse osmosis product water.

Results
The Aquatic Life RO performed very well. Total alkalinity was dropped from 120 to 20, and total hardness dropped from 160 to 15. The real test was in how the two new saltwater aquariums performed using the Aquatic Life RO water. I always had problems with algae, specifically a bloom of cyanobacteria. The 50- and 65-gallon aquariums have been running for more than two months now, without even a hint of cyanobacteria, and both aquariums house healthy corals and saltwater fish. This is a great product.

Conclusion
I strongly recommend the Aquatic Life 100 GPD RO unit for any hobbyist who requires pure water for an aquarium.
