Ro unit to buy

As of now I'm using a ro/Di unit from aquasafecanada to make my water but its about time to change my filters. I have the 7 stage and if I change the my filters every 6 months it would cost me more in the long run than having a 4 or 5 stage ro system. What ro unit do you guys suggest that would save me in the long run? Thanks

Well you could always remove a few stages on your 7 stage and make it a 4 or 5.
I have the same system as you I don't think you need 3 di stages you could easily take 2 of them out and maybe the 5 micron filter. Then just buy the filters you need
