    Ok, I want what it seems a lot of people prefer and what many see as the industry standard for RO Systems, a 4040.

    Priced at around 950 inc tax and a di vessel on cleaning warehouse, I don't have the funds to hand.

    Yet I do want one, would anybody be able to help me set up a system (not including DI Vessel as I have one) for as little as possible.

    If this system can churn out a minimum of around 200litres per hour and is the best for reduced waste water I see this being a good thread for all those who want a high performance RO at a lower cost ONLY IF someone can help me save money, as I own a RO and have no idea how it works so do not know where to begin.

    I doubt a 'cheap' one could be made.
    But as with all things, money can be saved with hard work and time.

    I just wrote the most stupid post ever.

    I deleted.

    I am ill, so any who read that totally disregard it.
     
  6. I might be corrected on this and I hope I am for your sake, but not sure how your going to save on the membrane which is what will purify the water. You might be able to save on the housing a little but then if you want a set to produce that amount of water in that time you might need a booster pump, which would then mean high pressure connectors and hoses etc. The way in which you will save money is installing it yourself. Mason, here's a pic of my system to let you know how mine is set up etc. I can take some more if you need specific areas,

    I've split this thread as it was going off topic, and wasn't achieving what it was supposed to :D
