Why are you considering an R/O unit? Is there an issue with your tap water quality or are you trying to accomplish a specific goal?

I use an inexpensive 5-stage 75gal/day system that I've been happy with. I just follow the manufacturer's recommended element replacement schedule. I use it to autofill a Rubbermaid food grade trash can with a float valve/pressure switch combo. I installed a bulkhead and a external transfer pump to move it where I need it.
