RO Machine - Part 1

Recently i decided to get my finger out and get my RO/DI water purification system built and running.

This is an idea i have had for a while now and already have all the basic parts for “manually” making my RO water.

As part as a self learning project to learn C programming through the aid of an Arduino ATMEGA board, i have decided to make this system fully automated so i will always have a constant supply of RO water for general usage, top ups and water changes.

It will incorporate my existing RO water unit and use a various controls and sensors to carry out the production. As well as supplying the water to the house and onto the aquariums.

The two companies i manly use for the RO parts are .

Both these companies provide a myriad of parts and equipment for carrying out RO production.

I have recently place a couple of orders. Mostly for pipework bits and pieces. Although i have decided to use a HM Digital PS-202 TDS controller to provide the sensor for that side of things. I will elaborate more on this when the unit arrives.

So far i have several items from RO-Man.

A few pipe odds and ends… these will be used for making a cell for mounting the PS-202 sensors into.

Also some electronically operated solenoids. This will be used to control the flow between the different areas of the RO unit itself and eventually on to supply the aquariums.

And several metres of RO tubing as the store will be located in the garage and then piped into the house.

Mainly awaiting the controller before i can begin to make progress.
