    is there any device or treatment i can do to my tap water to remove copper
    my house is completly plumbed in copper pipes
    and 90 gallons is a lot of one gallon containers
    is it Neccesary to have an RO/DI filter (holy expensive)
    this little item put me 200$ over budget and thats even before buying the little guy its supposed to serve.

    Well, you can buy RO/DI water from your LFS, and they will probably lend you 5 gallon jugs. That might be easier. They would probably give you empty 5 gallon salt buckets as well. Five gallons is a lot easier to deal with than one gallon - but heavier.

    If you haven't used the RO/DI unit, you might consider this alternate route.

    I don't know whether your RO/DI unit would remove all the copper in your water from the pipes - you should check into your unit, probably with the manufacturer.

    Your LFS could test the water, even before you use the RO/DI unit.
