I got the filterdirect one for around $120 off ebay. it came with a pressure tank, which is IMO a must have for convenience sake. Many ood reports on these and on the canadian ones, both off ebay.

I got the Canadian equivilent for $100 with storage tank (aquasafecanada is the seller) sediment/carbon/carbon/ro/DI/carbon + some refill DI beads. Works just fine.

Installation was kinda interesting but thats mainly since I'm in an apartment and the cold water line was on of those integrated cheapy "valve + supply hose" assemblies budget contractors love. Couldn't shut off the cold water myself to replace the **** valve-hose assembly myself

So I'm doing 1/2" compression coupler -> compression to pipe thread supply line -> pipe thread T -> pipe thread to compression supply line -> sink

The T is fed with a pipe to compression line , and then a compression to 1/4" quickconnect fitting.

Whoever invented plumbing sizes needs to be shot.

I realise that I was being cheeky interogating you with personal questions about your RO system but honestly!!! :P

Thanks again everyone for your posts.
