    hi guys just got myself a 2006 caddy, so getting closer to not humping drums about lol.
    I live in a top flat so I have nowhere to have a static tank, so I need to have a ro system in my van.
    does anyone know of a suitable ro and a pump to match?
    if anyone has pics of this type of setup could u post some pics of it?

    You better get scouring ebay or saving, just a membrane cost over £200. You need to be lucky to get a really good deal.

    Yeah mate, if i remember correctly cheapnchearfull uses one, but you will find it sloooooow. So if you dont use loads of water yes it will get you going, but if you need hundreds of litres a day then you will struggle.

    Ok, i think the 300gpd wont be enough for your needs. Or you will constantly producing pure and struggling to keep up, do you have an ibc for storing your pure yet?
    When i went down the Ro route i like you was looking at the 300gpd and reckoned that if i started producing on friday that by monday i would have enough, but i was incredibly lucky and bagged a second hand 4040(with brand new membrane fitted), sediment and carbon filters for £300 coincidently.
