RO/DI System to buy

My birthday is coming up in the next couple of weeks. My dad is looking to buy me an RO/DI system for my tank. Im currently changing 20 gallons of water from my tank every 2-3 weeks by filling up tanks at marsh for 35 cents a gallon. It has turned into a big hassle finding time to do it. I am wondering what is the best and most affordable RO/DI system that we should look into. I would like the price to stay under 175 dollars. If I could have a list of great systems that would be great. By the way my 2 clowns and my lawnmower blenny are doing quite well. The tank has been up and running for over 3 months now. TIA

My tanks-
newly set up 75 gal SW, 30 lbs of fiji lr, 30lbs of lace rock, 90 lbs of course/fine argonite sand, rena canister filter, 48" 4x65 watt pc, red sea turbo berlin skimmer.
Inhabitants- 2 percula clown fish, 1 muchroom coral, 2 leather corals, and 2 mystery corals.

There are several sellers on ebay with systems under or around $100 dollars. You could also pm AquaFX, or one of our other sponsors here and see what they have.

I bought a system from Aqua-Safe off ebay. It was only $100 and works great. It also comes with a TDS meter which is a must.

Search for Aqua-Safe RO/DI to find them.
