Add Single TDS Meter ( + $21.99 )
Add Dual TDS Meter ( + $24.99 )
Add Float Valve ( + $12.99 )
Add 5 Stage Replacement Filters ( + $24.9
all these things are not needed but nice to have. you need 60 psi at the inlet to get the advertised flow rates. the pressure gauge measures this. the flush kit pushes fast moving water past the membrane to "clean" some of the stuff off it. I don't know its value on a 75 gpd system. TDS meter is nice to make sure your system is giving you 0 TDS water. The double can be plumbed before and after the DI stage to measure the performance of the RO and the DI. you don't need a float valve unless you are going to be making up large batches of water in a tub. It is used to turn the system off when your container is full. Pretty good deal on the replacement filters but the ones that come with it should be good for 6 mths to a year. Hope this helps
