    The waste water is better than tap water.
    It goes through a sediment filter and a activated carbon block filter before getting bypass at the reverse osmosis membrane as "waste water"
    The activated carbon block filter removes chlorine and it's by-products (TTHM's) and volatile organic compounds (carbon based VOC's). Both, man-made and naturally occurring including among others:

    alachlor
    atrazine
    benzene
    carbofuran
    carbon tetrachloride
    chlorobenzene
    2,4-D
    dibromochloropropane (DBCP)
    O, P-dechlorobenzines
    forms of dichloroethylens
    1, 2-dechloropropane
    cis-1,3-dichloropropylene
    toxaphene
    chlordane
    radon
    lindane
    simazine
    PCB's
    toluene
    xylenes etc., etc.
    So the "waste water" in most cases are even better than bottled water sold at the shops.

    So you put in water to get out water and you pay for this process? Sounds fishy to me :laugh:

    You can drink RO water but I wouldnt drink a lot of it. It will remove the electrolytes from your body. But a little every now and again is good for cleaning out you kidneys I believe.

    Discovered the Mini had a slow leak. Took her to Tyger Wheel. Turned out just some dirt between the rim and tyre causing it to leak. The car has brand new Michelines on it so expected it to be something like that... They charges me R100 for Nitrogen and green caps.... Daylight robbery! :BangHead:

    Ok guys, I need all your positive vibes right now! The new tank is apparently set for delivery tomorrow!

    Couldn't be worse timing though. I have my sister arriving today from PE and we have a funeral to attend on Saturday..... Eish!!!!

    But hey why not just add to the already sky high pile of doo-doo that's come with the ordering of this tank so far right?! :laughing7:

    Positive Vibes!!!
