    The question of the hour.

    As they arrive, few RO/DI systems have any form of autoshutoff.

    To be automatic, you will need some other equipment. There are systems available (Tang_Man makes some and sells them in the classifieds here).

    If you purchase the RO/DI system from AquaSafe with the holding tank you will get an auto-shut off valve that shuts off water production once the holding tank is full...Im not 100% how this switch works, Im assuming it probably works by pressure some way since the holding tank has 2 bladder's inside, one for the water and the other pressurized so the water can be pushed all the way to the faucet and/or possibly to shut off the switch. If its not the way it works then maybe its possible to modify it...although I wouldn't attempt...especially if you plan to use the holding tank...

    Although as others mentioned, you can set up yourself an auto top up for RO pail with a solenoid that cuts off production once floats are reached, I think this may be the way TMM does them.

    I don't see the $92CAD system offered on this site(link provided by AK_ Sniper), is this the same Sokol or is there a Canadian site as the prices were all in USD? I too am interested in this topic as I'm in desperate need of one!

    I also have the unit from Aquasafe. There is a possibility his prices went up, or the exchange is different than when sniper got his. Here is the version that I have: aquasafe ro/di from his ebay store.

    The prices are expressed in US on the ebay store. (note link shows psi meter included. If you can get it free, why not). I strongly recommend the TDS meter at the same time. The shipping is free when ordered with the ro/di system.
