    Before buying anything you need to know the tds of your tap water.

    This is a di system, hence why it appears to be cheap. If you live in a hard water area you need to consider an r/o.

    A 4040 r/o costs around £600.00.

    If you have 2 operators then using us as an example we use about 2000 litres of pure a week, weather dependent. Calculate to 8000 per month. (Today we would have used around 600 liters between the 2 of us. 9.30am to 4.45pm with 1/2 an hour break at lunch time.) Tap tds of 72 will cost you £84 per month on resin (resin cost calculated at £80 per 25 liter bag) di only.

    With r/o 20" prefilters at £40.00 every 3 months (Fiberdyne Carbon Block and sediment).

    Every 3 years a replacement r/o membrane = £275.00
