    Culligan Water

    Hello,

    Does anybody use Culligan bottled water? Im looking for a good wate source because my tank always has phosphates and nitrates that I believe are mostly from the tap water. As you all know, those two things lead to nuissance algae which Im trying to get rid of. One the good side, my lawnmower blenny is always well fed. :
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Setup:
    27 Gallon Saltwater tank, 110W PC Light, Seaclone 100, 5 gallon HOB Fuge,Approx. 30lbs Live rock, Aragamax sand substrate.
    Livestock:
    Tomato clown, Mandarin dragonnet, Bicolor Angel, Assorted hermits and snails, Cleaner Shrimp.
    Corals:
    Assorted mushrooms, Zoanthids, Finger Leather.

    Use distilled water or even better get yourself a RO/DI unit sized to fit your needs.

    I wouldnt use bottled water, I would even tell you that distilled water isnt the safest bet because the water is only as good as the membranes that filter them, often the membranes are neglected and the water you buy from them will not be a well distilled as your own new RODI unit.
    Thats from my own experience anyway.

    If the tank is small enough you could use STEAM distilled water which is lab quality. However as stated ... your very own RO/DI unit is the way to go in this water hungry hobby.

    Ive got only a small 25 gallon tank, but I try to change about 5 gallons a week.

    Can somebody recomend a unit that would provide the necessary amount of water? Cost is a very big issue for me at the moment. Ofcourse, it is income tax season....
