Ok will I be ok for maybe about 1 month or 2 weeks before getting one?

I got the 6 stage 150gpd version and it is great, only surprise I had was the amount of waste water. It is 2 to 1 waste to pure, I made a test run to see how it all worked. I ran the system for 1 hour it made about 5 gallons of pure, but 10+ of waste (used a 5 gal buckets to capture both types)

You will be very happy with the water

You must have some pretty good water to start with. My tap TDS is 160 and running RO/DI I am at 3/1 if not closer to 4/1 to get 0 TDS.

100GPD RO/DI takes about 1 3/4 hrs for 5 gallons.

Definitely a great place to do business with. About a yr or so ago I ordered magnesium chloride from them. They sent me calcium chloride. I emailed them and they told me keep the calcium and they sent a new bucket of mag.
