that link won't open for me.

There are two sellers on ebay "filterdirect" and "aquasafe canada" which are both highly rated anc cheap. I have the 6100 from filterdirect which I paid around 130 for (shipped) with a pressure tank and drinking water faucet. I love it.

I would second ebay. I bought mine from filterdirect and have been very happy with it.

looks fine to me. I don't know that vendor though, but it sure is cheap enough (except for the shipping). I'd see if they can add a pressure tank. you need to think about how you're going to plumb it in (to see what feed water option to get) and how to store your RODI. I personally use the pressure tank to store about 2.5g, which is plenty for topoffs and drinking use. If you need to make more, you should get a float switch too, and fill a trash can or whatever. It might be worth seeing how much more they'd charge for clear filter canisters on at least the first stage or two. worth a few extra bucks, IMO.
