I got mine online at E-bay. It was very simular to that unit, but I dont like their DI system. The one I got has cartages. Look around for another unit. I got a 100gpd RO/DI unit for $115. It's been working for over a year with great sucess. I change the filters every 6 months.

It's my understanding that there are only 2 companies that make membranes and they are both good companies so the main difference is DI resin. I have had some good and some not so good resin, don't get me wrong they all worked just some do not last as long as others. I have had resin burn out after making only 200 gal of water while others last 3-4 x's that. So get a fair priced unit and just shop around for good resin.

TDS means "Todal Disolved Solids" and is a measurement of everything in the water. Look on ebay or other online stores for a "TDS Meter" it is an electronic probe (like a termometer) that you simply place in the water (follow it's instructions) and it will display a number on a small LCD screen.
