    Making water with the Vertex Ro/Di 100 GPD. Water is plumbed to my storage tank. Waste water is plumbed to drain line of a near by sink.

    Most recent piece of the puzzle to arrive. This one has been on back order for a while.

    Work in the Fish room is almost done. Only thing left to do is to install control board, install conduit to hide cables and add items (skimmer....).

    Plumbing explained: Ro/Di water is drawn from near by bar sink (white line). Blue line is Ro/Di water to storage tank. Red line is waste water to drain line connected to sink.

    With the 40G storage tank plumbing (valves). You can add water to the ATO pail, Mix salt water and add new salt water to sump.

    In the sump there are 3 (1.5")drain lines, Bean animal setup. 2 drain in the drain/sock section and the 3rd (emergency) is in the refugium. The main drain is controlled by a gate valve.

    For the return(1") there are 2 returns into the tank, 2 tees with 1/2" inline ball valve with push connect for future use ,there is 1 tee into the fuge and an in line valve to drain waste water out of tank/sump (to the right of Ro/Di) the second valve is for redundancy (above storage tank) and to drain Ro/Di waste water.

    Also the 2 pumps are identical and inlet/outlet plumbing are the same lengths to union. This way they can be interchanged if main pump goes down (weekends)

    You setup just keeps getting more and more amazing and the detail. Everything is straight and clean. What type of pipe are you using. It looks like PVC, but I have never seen the blue before.

    Hey Tks Jason.
    The pipes are a blue schedule 40 PVC. I got the pipes from Bulk Reef Supply in the States, I wasn't able to find it in Canada.
    I measured every piece about 5 times and dry fit sections before gluing. I'm really happy with the way its turning out.
