Ro waste for water change water ?

Recommended Posts

So in theroy yeah it is possible isn't it.? I mean all I'd have to do is just add back the minerals to the waster water. I just moved in with some mates so trying to keep costs down on lots of things, so when I'm using the ro unit for top ups on my reef can I use the waste water as water change for my 8fter fresh if I'm just adding back the minerals ?

I use waste water for waterchanges. The Tds is only slightly higher than the tap water used as it is slightly more concentrated.

If you have a 4 or 5 stage then all the chlorine and other nasties will be removed. I get 5 litres of ro to 15 litres of waste and the Tds from waste is similar to tap water.

I use it for americans, cherry shrimp, cories, endlers, bn and L numbers.

Cheers mick
