    Good to know.
    I always guessed that spa-flex was too stiff get a barb fitting in properly, but I like that it is pretty indestructible
    and does not kink.

    Also the flexibility is questionable it's pretty stiff

    Like it was said before, there is a much life flexible version of spa flex, but it may not be trustworthy w pvc glue.
    I've only done it w drains, nothing under pressure.

    Hmmm.
    Pressure only makes it leak ... faster.

    Test your product water on the rodi for total chlorine and free chlorine anything above 0 has chloramine.

    So that is more reactors than I think I remember on the pump manifold.
    You send the water through some in series?
    Curios on the plumbing.

    One manifold pumpsbto sulfur denitrator split off to ozone reactor. The ozone reactor then feeds the carbon reactor. The arid in series with the gfo reactor. The calcium reactor is run on the masterflex.

    So 3.5 months of topping off with chloramine water and then doing massive water changes with bad waterthinking my parameters were off. Left a few of my fish with massive ammonia burns. My poor gem. I was finally able to trap him

    Will need to nurse him back to health with antibiotics and vitamin enrich foods.

    Hope he'll get to look like this again
