Thanks for all your help.... I found a unit at Bulk Reef Supply that will also make drinking water..... it's more expensive but since we've been looking for something to filter our drinking water, a better deal for us (& easier to sell to my husband). Since Greg mentioned the cost of replacing filters, etc. as a major cost (believe me, I get the printer analogy!) I'm asking your advice once again. Do you know of a particular source/brand that is easier on the filters, works well, and is reasonably priced? I'm hoping someone out there has a unit they can suggest.... Bulk Reef Supply looks good but since I don't know what I'm looking for (& there's no data on filter life) that doesn't mean much. Thanks again.

The filter life kind of depends on how bad your tap water is. BRS and places like Home Depot sell the filters. RO membranes are rated for flow rate, so note what was in it when you got it.

Go to YouTube and look up BRS TV and they have a full video on their rodi systems. Your filters are changed out whenever your output TDS starts to rise above zero. Your RO membrane is replaced yearly from my experience. Also I use the color changing di filter media so I have a reference on how much long my resin will last.
