Since the RX240 is out, now you can afford the Gentle Typhoons! No excuse!
Can you help me pick the right one ?
and yes there is still an excuse beside the price... avaibility, its out of stock atm

Another update concerning the plan, as some suggested, I went with quick disconnect for draining ( not even sure if I picked the right one or the one you guys talked about because I don't think they are cheap )

I had to change to compression fittings and the matching tubing (I think) because since the quick-disconnect was no where cheap (imo) I preferred to go compression as they are better and since I was planning on getting compression anyway in the future. Trying to future proof and since the tubing had to change, I added compression for the rest of the loop too

here is what the list looks like:


How is it looking ? am I missing something or can I make it even more cost effective ?

For Gentle Typhoons you can purchase them from Aquatuning.us.
The GT 1850 RPM AP15's are $14.81: http://www.aquatuning.us/product_info.php/info/p6624
Aquatuning charges ten dollars for orders under $75 and 10.25% of the total purchase price. However, they are well worth the price. Shipping is $8 for two day and $6 for three day or free if spending over $300. I ordered mine on a Monday and I received them on a Thursday with 3 day shipping.

Since you are Canadian can you consider purchasing from DazMode.com Store Link: http://dazmode.com/store/

I ordered my kit already with a 4$ T-line solution instead. Although the site you pointed our are interesting I think Daz mode is a little ''overpriced'' I rather pay US+shipping in some cases when I shop online and Daz is one of them (until I find something in the good range). Besides the next update on my water will be in a month minimum but I will bookmark your site. Aside from that +rep for the site i never saw (aquatuning) and digging my thread

-Last question : is the clouding phenomena that happen with the cheap tubing that comes with the kit is just esthetic ? Or will it leave residues in my loop ?
