RO System

I bought one of those 100GPD RO Filters from EBay. Filter Direct, I think. I'm only getting about 1.5gal per hour which is about a third of what I was expecting. Has anyone else seen this?

The 100 GPD rating is only if you meet the optimal requirements. If you have low water pressure or realy hard water the GPD drops. You may want to check the paramiters of your water and also contact the manufacturer to see what they suggest.
