    If you are not on a water meter then go R/O, budget R/O if you can have a static system or 1000 GPD RO System for quick fill time.

    If not then double DI would be okay for quick fill time however and may work out more cost effective against the cost of waste.

    This is a rough guess using MB-115 ( Other brands have different specs ) through double di you would get approx 6/7000 litres from a 25 litre bag.

    At 400 litres a day it would be worth investing in a high spec r/o, costly in the beginning but will pay for itself over the long run.

    An R/O depending on grade of membrane, flow rate , psi will bring your ppm down to 003/010 ppm.

    You should get more than that as you can still clean with water at 10ppm when I was using twin di I had a 240ppm and was getting 6000lts a bag
