mFrame Posted April 5, 2010 Share Posted April 5, 2010 I now have my RO/DI and three barrels (1)30g, (2)15g and will be setting them up in my laundry room. Each barrel has two 2" threaded caps. I stacked my washer dryer so I have a slot about 4' square. I have a Y with on/off to feed cold water to the RO and the washing machine. I purchased the auto-shutoff for the RO unit as well. My question is, what is the best configuration for the barrels and how do I plumb this thing? Ideally I would be able to push water about 20' to my tanks using gravity, though I do have an extra Mag 9.5. Here's the flow I imagine: wall --> RO/DI unit --> 30g barrel (for holding top-off water and water for mixing salt) --> Y divider with ball valve for each 15g??? --> 15 g barrels I'm trying to decide: should the 30g be stood upright and the 15g ones on their side? Suspend the float valve from one of the threaded inserts of the 30g? Does the Mag pump have to be inside the barrel or can I put a long piece of pvc pipe to pull water from a barrel? Any ideas or configurations? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
