RO pressure problems

My tap water pressure is about 80 psi and RO runs fine for about month but then filters get little brown and pressure drops to 40 psi and my auto shut off fails to function at that pressure and I constantly run waste water. My RO system is always on since it also goes to my kitchen faucet and ice maker. I don't feel I need a booster pump they are expensive and my tap water pressure is good.

Can I get different filters to prevent clogging so fast? Filters should last 6 months. This is a fairly new problem. Maybe my city water had more sediment. Not sure.
