There are many sellers on ebay with fair prices. Also, check the sites sponsor forums.
You can hook them up different ways. You can get a gardenhose attachment and split it off your coldwater line for your washer (this is what I did), or you can tap into your cold water pipes under your sink. There are other methods as well, it depends on how you want to do it. The RO/DI units can be bough with or without a holding tank. I just have mine run to a large rubbermaid tub so it's ready for mixing.

ebay has nice units... I make 6 gals at a time in a gas can for top offs and I use a rubbermade garbage can for making salt water for WC.. Like fluff I use the washer hook up and I have the waste water going into the washing machine to do a load of laundry..

Do you have a washing machine in the houes? If you do then get the hose attachment and you can hook it up on the water line for the washer. HD sells a Y dual hose connection so you can have the washer and ro/di hooked up at the same time. Very Easy
they also have a sink attachment..
airwaterice.come sells nice units.. I got mine there and they are great with customer service. They cost a little more but are worth it.... Walter will answer all your questions and wont stear you wrong.
e bay also has uints on the site..

if your not going to use it for drinking then a tank is not needed. I use a rubbermaid garbage can to hold my water and to mix fresh SW in. You should have a Ph and heater in the can to keep the water up to temp for water changes and ph for mixing and circulation.
