    Sorry to hijack your thread but How much pure water could that make? In 24hrs. Not sure what I need to look for if I want a wfp setup

    In the long run you would be better buying a 4040. I produce 1000L of water in around 5hrs. Comes out of my 4040 at 02ppm then I have a 11L polisher bottle which brings it down to 000. Depends on your budget and how many windows you clean each day and if you want to expand your business!.

    Don't worry about the hi jack it's something that I initially didn't think about!

    What price did the 4040 system set you back squeak and bubbles?

    thats a 50gpd RO, i had a 200gpd RO as my first purifier and it made 12L per hour on mains water pressure.

    you would be better off getting at least a 300gpd RO boosted even better.

    Squeak and bubbles, how much did it add to your water bill for 1000liters?

    Were not on a water meter dude. Forget that :) I paid £480 for my 4040 set up. I needed to buy a booster pump as my psi was only 38. It's now 100psi. I can get the full set up for around £500 mark (excludes booster pump).
