    That’s very nice , a lot of people on my thread have told me to go with a Varios pump over a Vectra Return pump upgrade that I have been thinking about. Still leaning towards the Vectra a little more

    I actually was also looking at the vectra pump . I bought the varios 2 for the mix station to test it out and see what it could do and how loud it was . I’m really pleased with it so i decided to go with the 8 for the return pump. BRS had it on sale for like 260.00 so I could pass it up , I also grabbed another 2 for possibly running my reactors on its own system instead of teeing off the return it was on sale for like 126.00 I think . Once again couldn’t pass it up

    Clean set up, love the color scheme!

    I too purchased the RO Elite 200, can't for the life of me get the O-ring to seal properly with the cup.
