Those wont do it. They usually don't include a DI stage which is essential. You can buy a 4 stage that includes DI for about that price at BRS.

Try purewaterclub.com you can probably get a 5 or 6 stage ro/di for that price.

Check out spectrapure as well.

They sell a refurbished unit for 125 about, normally 190. I just received mine and the thing is brand new. Best value for ro/di units as far as I'm concerned.
