    Apex dos

    By mrdave,

    I recently added a dos to my system and what a great bit of kit it is, the down side being if you want the fluid monitor in your dashboard you have to buy a DDR - well no you don’t 

    after messing around with my multimeter and searching the net I made it display without the DDR by adding two wires To two of the inputs and a float valve I had lying around 

    i have bought the correct plugs and associated bits and bobs to make my own sensors to connect to the Dos

    Reverse Osmosis Systems and Accessories

    By Osmotics,

    Hey Guys,

    Dave kindly asked us to pop over and take part in this forum, always a pleasure that.

    If you need anything from the world of Reverse Osmosis and general water filtration products, we should be your first stop!

    Setting the scene here, we've been around since 2005 continuously offering new and innovative products to the market. We've seen a lot of copies of our products reach the market but rest assured, you won't find a better quality product or service than by buying direct from us. 

    No hard sells, no cheap and cheerful stuff that you have to buy again in 6 months either, our products stand the test of time and won't cost you an arm and a leg buying twice.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us although we'd prefer if you did that via our website contact form at the following link as it's tied with our customer database and therefore we can keep all our records in one place.
