Ok, I gave in and bought an RO unit finally. It's a whirlpool WHER25. Are there any pitfalls to installing this bad boy ? What led up to this was the constant buying of bottled water for my wife and jugs of distilled for my plants.
To make a long story short, I installed the old one my dad had laying in his basement unused for YEARS. (Headache #1) No pressure through the RO membrane. Messed with it for a couple of days before realizing even if it does work and is free, the replacement RO membrane would have to be bought from the Smithsonian for quite a bit I'm sure.
Enter new RO unit I picked up today. Looks plenty simple compared to installing that Edsel on my basement wall. Now how about running the water through the older ones prefilter and carbon filter before hooking to the new one ? In essence making it a 5 stage instead of a 3 ? As long as I'm at it why not hook up the holding tank and put both the old and new in line for double capacity ?
