 greetings,  
 
 the  work  has  been  slowed  down  as  i  am  busy  working  and  traveling  and  waiting  for  the  stand  to  be  made  according  to  carpenters  need.  hopefully  by  next  week  it  shall  be  done.  many  things  planed...  
 
 the  marble  is  laid  on  the  floor  and  the  drainage  system  is  drilled  with  2  outlet  and  1  inlet  near  the  garden  where  the  RO  unit  will  be  placed.  (will  try  to  upload  the  pic  soon)  
 the  outlets  will  be  made  with  permanent  pipeline  so  that  with  just  a  knob  on  the  water  is  drained  out  till  the  desired  level  and  new  water  from  RO  storage  tank  is  pumped  in.  
 
 soo  now  the  question  is  
 the  person  who  will  be  taking  care  of  the  RO  and  other  water  related  supplies  for  house  doesnt  carry  RODI  unit.  i  searched  a  lot  regarding  which  is  better  and  got  more  and  more  confused.  soo  please  suggest  me  getting  RO  is  better  or  RODI  is  better.  i  would  look  forward  for  RO  unit  as  dont  want  to  involve  one  more  team  in  house  and  again  one  more  maintenance  contract.  so  it  is  better  that  i  go  for  RO  and  the  single  guy  can  take  contract  of  everything.  
 
 looking  for  the  light  ideas  .  what  to  keep  and  how  to  keep.  need  some  thing  very  neat  as  the  tank  will  be  in  the  living  room  and  dont  like  bulky  roofs
 
 new  sump  design  is  done  and  the  glasses  are  ready.  need  to  go  to  LFS  to  tell  him  where  to  drill  the  holes.  i  have  sketched  the  stuff  on  papers  ll  try  to  scan  it  and  upload  it  here.  
 
 it  is  planned  that  the  storage  tank  is  2X2X2  feet  any  suggestions  on  that  ?  the  thinking  behind  that  
 1)  will  be  used  as  auto  top  of  on  2  main  tank  freshwater  and  saltwater  
 2)  will  be  used  to  change  the  water  in  both  the  buce  tank  every  day  around  10%  and  in  freshwater  tank  every  alternate  day  10%  
 3)  the  water  change  in  the  marine  will  be  manual  as  i  dont  have  space  to  manage  another  tank  to  make  salt  water.  
 
 regarding  the  RO  unit,  it  is  12  LHP  but  the  guy  who  will  be  fixing  is  asking  me  to  go  for  25  LHP  capacity  RO  unit.  what  do  you  guys  think  ?  any  special  things  to  ask  the  RO  unit  guy  in  specific  ?
 
 lights  are  ordered  and  at  friends  place.  just  the  half  set  now  waiting  for  him  to  ship  it  ti  India.will  be  here  any  time  soon....  
 
 
 mean  while  i  am  planning  for  a  controller  for  all  the  tanks

 Whoa!  I'm  not  that  experienced  to  give  advice  on  such  a  massive  project,  but  will  be  watching  out  for  people's  comments  &  take  a  leaf  off  this  project.  Maybe  someday,  I'll  do  something  of  this  scale.

 any  sugestions  or  any  thing  i  need  to  keep  in  mind  ??

 i  am  reading  about  the  Automatic  water  change  system  and  its  quite  confusing..  the  more  i  read  the  more  it  complicates  me        
 i  am  not  a  DIY  person  though
