Those aren't R/O they are just carbon filters. A decent r/o unit should run 150-200 with membranes. I'd check craigslist or a hardware store.

Ebay has RO/DI units for ~$125 (I got my 100gpd from FilterDirect for $140). You can hook them right up under your sink. They are the cheapest ways of obtaining RO water. Check out NickRummy's thread about it:

I just attach my RODI unit to my sink when I need to make more water. I use a garden hose attachment and a garden hose adapter for the sink.

Make sure to get the DI cartridge, not just the RO unit.

I've noticed it a lot recently, not just about RO/DI, but a couple topics, like "I have ammonia in my water!" etc.

(Sorry for off-topic!)
