The more gallons per day produced the faster you will be filling

That would be more then enough GPd= gallons per day so depending on the size of the ro system it'll be how many gallons you'll be able to produce per day so if you wanted to make 100 of water and you only have a 35 GPd system it'll take you 3 days because your system is only capable of producing 35 GPd...now if you have a 100 GPd system you would be able to knock it out in one day of non stop filtering...get it?

A 30 gal. can would take about 8hrs to fill at 100gpd a 150 would take about 5 hrs a 35 would take 2 1/2 to 3 days.
