    As you all know I have a 50gpd RO system which is slow. If I fitted a 100gpd membrane & bought a water pump would it make my water fill up quicker rather then a dribble & can it be done.

    Yer it would come out faster but not that much faster.

    I have a 200gpd with booster pump and that still takes 3minutes to make 1litre of pure water.

    Yes it can be done no problem. At the minute I have 2 100gpd membranes fitted, most you can have is 3 100gpd membranes.

    3 minutes 1 litre. 75 minutes to fill 1 jerry can lol. 525 mins bout 9 hours to fill my 7. Wow. Think for now ill stick to my 2 di's. the money I spend on a booster pump & 100gpd membrane I might as well spend on 25 litre bag of resin. It a last me a year.

    these sort of RO systems are good if you have a static tank and leave it filling all day. mine it left on over night and fills up the 375litres that I filled my van up from the 1000litre static tank I have.

    As I said prob best to put it away & when I get a water butt & outside tap ill use it then when I can leave it on all day. Must go through some water tho with tap running all day (night)

    Yes and no. At the minute make 400lts it uses 1200lts. At a cost of about £1.50 for that water. As I'm on a water, I pay for what I use. And it's not that bad.

    Did you change your flow restrictor otherwise you will still get the same output as 50 gpd

    the money spent on the new membrane and booster pump could go towards a brandnew 200 or 300gpd RO with builtin booster pumps
