    I bought mine at home depot for $125. They're selling one now for $159 here: Reverse Osmosis unit at Home Depot

    EDIT: Hmm. That URL doesn't work. It's Internet/Catalog #162836 at homedepot.com

    You should be able to find one closer to 100 bucks, though. I really like mine, and you won't regret buying one.

    You could also check out ebay. That's where I got mine. I think you can get some for around $80.

    That unit doesn't come with a pressurized tank, so make sure you know what you're getting! How do you collect the water in a unit like this?

    The one I got doesn't have tank either. It has a hose connector on the inlet line and there's two open outlet lines. One is the pure water line and the other is the waste water line. I used an old 5 gal. bucket to collect the water from the pure line. You could also get a big trash can and use that to collect the water. Since i hooked it up in our basement i ran the waste water line so it would drain into the sump pump hole.
