Thanks for the advise

Thanks all,

i will stick to RO. I will have to invest in a filter. I have thought of an ebay filter but I have been a little apprehensive. For those who have suggested ebay; thanks.

Merry Christmas to you all. I am hoping santa will bring me a purple tang; I have been very good!!
