I posted a thread on a nice, affordable reverse osmosis / deionizing filter on Amazon. For making water between rain barrel fills, it is great. It is also nice if you do not have a tremendously large water requirement. I make 55 gals at a time and it lasts me a week or so. Here is the link in case you’re interested
The one thing that I don't like about RO units is the amount of waste water produced per gallon of RO water. I had to go to the manufacturer's web page
to find it:
Typical Rejection Rate: 1:3.4
The average person would use 4.4 gallons of tap water to produce 1 gallon of RO. So for 55 gallons of RO, that's 187 gallons of waste. I could always use that to water the garden or yard. Is your water/sewer bill noticeably higher since you started using the RO unit?
