    Will this reverse osmosis system work?

    Hey guys! I don't have much of an idea of what kind of reverse osmosis system would work for my CPs, so I am hoping that you all can help me out. Will this http://www.kentmarine.com/waterfilte...ize-his-ro.htm reverse osmosis system work? I can get one for around $60. If not, can you recommend a good one that is not too expensive?

    So far, I have been buying distilled water from the store, and I know that I can't keep doing that forever, unless I want to go broke! Let me know what you think, thanks!

    i have been using this unit from : http://www.freedrinkingwater.com/ro-counter-detail.htm

    It can generate about 100 gallons a day. I have used the unit for over 4 years now, and just replace the filters every year . I really don't think you can get a unit for $60, are you sure this includes the whole RO set up?

    Looks like a filter only unit, no tank/bladder, taps etc. and fitted for garden hoses. My friend's father-in-law uses one such as this in his orchid greenhouse. It just fills a large reservoir that feeds the watering/misting system. I guess you can get 'em at cost around $60 if you have the business connections.

    No reason why you can't use it. If you're going to put it under the sink you'll probably need to buy a tank, fitting adapters, hoses etc.

    I did EBAY too, and got 2 tanks so I have more water available at all times. I might go to three! I think AQUASAFE something was the seller. I'm very happy with it.

    There is one of these locally on craigslist and the guy is selling it for $60 and I was trying to decide whether I should buy it or not. I would be able to hook it up to my garden hose if needed and fill the jugs of water up like that, but that would be a pain whenever winter comes. I guess that something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/AQUA-SAFE-AQUARI...QQcmdZViewItem
    would be a better deal?

    Well, for the base system it's roughly the same. But you should know that these things put out water at just a trickle. It's not really practical unless you have a tank that you fill. I'd either buy one that comes with the pressurized tank (usually a little more money) or have some sort or reservoir to collect the water in (preferably with a float valve so you don't overfill it.)

    Check this one out.
