Reverse Osmosis Aquarium Water Quality: Maxxima RO/DI Units

This is the one I use. A little pricey but it works great. I`m wondering if it`s taking two days what your water pressure is?

Under normal circumstances I would say fix an inline booster pump but if you are not allowed to fit a saddle valve to the mains pipe it kind of stuffs you running any decent amount of RO water from any unit that you get

You can get a T attachment that goes between the fixture and the flex hose. It is not the pipe puncturing type. THe landlord never has to know.

I also +1 the pump, but try the T first, your fixture may be reducing the pressure.
