Again, subjective. My SW
store has told me, and it's been verified, that our towns water has plenty of stuff in it that you'd definitely want OUT of it. The thing to do is to buy a TDS
meter that'll tell you hove much "total dissolved solids" are in the water. People can get RODI
for about $.30/gl however, you don't really know the quality until you test it.
So...figure out what kind of system you want, say you change your filter twice a year ( hard to determine ) then use a local source that sells it and figure that if the equipment runs you $200.00, filters run you $30.00 x2 there's $260.00 ( very rough number, just throwing it out there)
Unless you have a large tank I don't think, even then, it'll be cost effective. If you can buy plain RODI
water for $2/gl you need to figure out how much water you'll change and what your break even point will be. If you can get your money back in a year then I'd go for it. If it's more like two years, I'd pass.
Food for thought.
