    Wow your bladder tanks are cheap. For me to pick up a 5.2 locally would be like $150. I just called around locally three weeks ago and nearly fell out of my chair!

    What exactly are bladder tanks good for?

    In my case it helps dampen the water hammer effect (knocking pipes). It's simply a reserve tank (expansion tank in my case). I need another for a friends system of which he'll use it with a booster pump to increase efficiency.

    I thought that was the whole purpose of making "tee" right where the faucet comes out, and having a "dead end" pipe just about it. It holds a bit of air, so as the pressure fluctuates the air in there simply compresses.

    Helps in most cases, didn't in mine. Trust me, I tried everything.

    I've always wondered about the bladder tank - I have my RO hooked up to my garden hose outlet (the pipes whine like crazy when it's on), and so we only have the water on when we're actively making water. I assume this is why our tank never fills? Is there any reason to even have it connected?

    Not in your case.

    On that note, how do you have yours hooked up?

    Source -> RO -> Meter 1 -> DI -> Meter 2?

    I have two meters, but around your DI resin, see what it's going in at, and what it's coming out at.

    I hope you used the BAR discount code - They track to see if anyone in the club actually uses it.
