    Trying to save money on resin (banging through about £115 a month). I'm renting at the min so I can't harvest rain water or build an RO shed outside so I wanted one I could run from a tap then into the DI vessel afterwards to cut the costs. Is this what I am looking at with the Facelift RO (link below)? Just plug into my tap and run it through and back out to my DI filter?

    FaceLift® ZERO ONE

    It connects with 4mm plastic pipe but you use a jg connector which is pushfit for the 4mm pipe and has hosetail on the other end for standard garden hose so can connect/disconnect as quick as a hoselock
