Such a thing as a DIY RO Unit?

And if so how much does it cost to set one up?

I suppose you could do it by going to lowes or Home Depot and buying replacment filter housings and membranes and connectign them up with high pressure 1/4" tubing but to be totally honest with the amount of pressure that is created in a RO filter I dont know how confident I would be to leave one run and walk away. You should be able to get a decent RO unit from Ebay for just over the cost of the membranes and filter cartrages.

69.99 plus shipping 6 stage ro/di unit on EBAY works like a charm.

Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?
I think so Brain, but there's still a bug in there from last time.
