    I'm getting my tank tomorrow but I don't have a rodi system yet and I need enough to fill my new tank for 65g. I have salt to mix but I only have 2-5g and 2-6g jugs to haul water. Can anyone help?

    7 seas and Oceanside both have affordable salt water if it comes down to it. I've decide, for now at least, that's it's not work it for me to mix my own. Good luck!

    Where you located? I might be able to help you out if your close. If you live close to AC or another lfs you might save some money making couple trips there verses driving to me.

    I live close to critters. It will take me 3 trips to fill up. Trying to cut down to one trip so I. Can move everything over in one trip.

    If you go talk to your lfs and explain what your trying to do they may let you borrow buckets. Depending on what kind of vehicle you have you may be to do in one trip.

    Walmart has 7 gallon water storage containers for like $14 each. Blue, food grade, fairly rugged with a reversible spiggot. I store RODI water in them, as well as in 5 gallon water cooler water jugs (which you can also buy empty).
