I need to run my top-off container 9ft up 15 ft over then back down. I'd like to use 1/4 or 3/8 tubing. Can someone tell me what pump would do this? Its either up and through the attic or outside with a aqualifter pump. I'm just concerned about the water freezing outside.

Thanks
Don

Hmmm the pressure coming out of the unit wont drive it that far?? or are you pumping out of a container??

I'd split off the RO/DI that way you don't need the pump.

Kevin has some nifty new stuff for his RO/DI units that shut them off with back pressure so you aren't wasting water all day everyday when your not making water..

My plan is to split of my RO/DI I'm curious why you aren't, is there something I'm not aware of?

ah shoot..I do not see the information I did earlier? I just put my foot in my mouth again. This site had information on rebuilt metered pumps earlier. It stated which rates the rebuilt pumps dosed. I am sorry.
