    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    RO units are normally more expensive than distillers. If you go to ACE hardware store at Novena Square, they have RO units priced above S$1000!. In addition to that, you would have to replace the particular filter once every three to six months (depending on how dirty your water supply is) and the RO membrance once every one to two year. The replacement membrance is apparently quite expensive (ca. S$200 each).

    In the long run, I think the distiller is somewhat more economical, depending on how much the electric company is going to charge us for electricity in the future. The only problem with distillers are that you would have to wait several hours before the entire pot of water is distilled. My distiller is more expensive (ca. S$500) but distills one gallon of water every four hours. I have been happy with it so far, since I only need to distill one gallon of water per week for my CPs and myself!

    Yes, deionisers are defintely cheaper and are mainly used by marine aquarist to remove ions (mainly metallic and carbonate ones?) from tap water.
