    You will have ALOT of wastage mate, it's very high. You will need a good filtering system plus a De-Ioniser.

    I use the Merlin RO System with an 11 Litre D.I.

    http://www.cleaningspot.co.uk/acatalog/RO_Systems.html

    I also use this booster pump to reduce the PPM further (you may also need it if your tap water is 400). (It's the top one)

    Hope this helps,

    Nah it's one of the 'cheaper end' models. Will still get the job done though, but might not be very quick at doing so. The general rule is. The more money you spend, the more reliable and long lasting the product will be. Obvs in some cases this is not true but it generally is.
