Tip of the Day – 12/7/2011


Cold weather can be tough on our aquarium livestock, and it can also be tough on the equipment that keeps our tanks running. Reverse osmosis (RO) water filtration units are usually the last thing anyone thinks of when preparing their aquariums for the cold months ahead, but they can be one of the most affected items if they aren’t properly stored. If a RO unit is left out in a garage or out on a patio, it could literally freeze depending on the temperature in your area. Not only will this damage the filters, but it could also destroy the filter housings, forcing you to buy a new RO unit or spend a good deal on replacement parts for the damaged one.
