Here are some things to look for in a good system for this hobby. And by "good" I mean a system that will provide 0 TDS water, have a low O&M cost, provide you the information to troubleshoot the sysem, and will be likely to give you minimal difficulties:

  • No more than 4 stages (sediment, carbon, RO, DI) unless you have specific water quality issues you want to address
  • Standard-sized prefilters, membrane, and DI cartridge
  • Brand name, high-rejection membrane
  • Specifications provided for each stage
  • Pressure gauge after the prefilters and before the membrane
  • Thermometer
  • TDS meter (handheld or in-line)
  • DI bypass
  • Vertical DI stage
  • Refillable DI cartridge
  • Aluminum bracket
  • Quick connect fittings
  • No water from pressurized storage container delivered to DI
  • Flush valve
  • Clear housings
  • High-quality instructions written in clear English
  • Customer support before, during, and after your purchase
  • A vendor involved in your hobby

Yup, works fine. They want you to read accurate TDS so that you'll buy more filters. I used the pitcher until I got a DI stage.
