    Is it worth the money?

    I happened to be in the plumbing section of lowes today and decided to look at their RO units. well there was a whirlpool RO unit for $170. I was thinking of saving up to get one. I have so many plants its hard to keep the house stocked with distilled water. do you think this is a good price, and a good investment?I think $200 is the max amount I can spend. does anyone know of any other good priced RO units?

    It depends if it actually works well for CPs. If it does, go for it, the price of buying all the distilled water you've bought would then add up over the price of the RO system.

    yeah it is worth it way better than buying water and you can't always count on it raining. I live in Oregon, western Oregon and we get alot of rain but during summer I think it rained like once.
    A RO FILTER IS A GOOD INVESTMENT!!!

    I've seen those RO units and they're like 20 gallons a day or something... I bought a 100 gpd RO unit for less than that... I never have to worry about having enough water. Check around on the web to find a good deal on RO units.

    Poolboy101,

    I would also check ebay. That is where I bought mine.

    Here is the link for several on ebay.

    I personally feel the ones on ebay are much more cost effective and of better quality than the ones I've seen at lowes. Commercial ones come at a commercial price, just arn't worth it.

    That is so true!

    I paid $55.00 for mine out the door and I would have paid well over $100.00 elsewhere.
