Yea that's what I was thinking as well hopefully with wheels? Plus maybe a water pump to just plug in and let the to flow into the tanks.

How long can you go before replacing the filter?

You can get a $20 residential sump pump controller to automate the pump to fill up a bigger container.

The larger the filter the less often you replace them. It also depends on how bad your water supply is.

Sorry for all the questions I've never even seen a ro system in person. How do you know your filter is spent

You can buy a TDS meter for $40 and it will tell you how bad the output is or sometimes it will just stop flowing. My new ro filter is reading about 20 to 26. After installing a DI it reads 0 TDS
