    Ro system does produce water slowly, only way to increase it is with a booster pump.

    Not sure really, I run a 200gpd ro and with the booster pump I think it nearly doubles the quantity in the same amount of time.

    Cost wise its variable really, might be able to get second hand one but anything upto £100 maybe

    Once you've converted most of your round and are past the first few cleans part, if you've a ibc or something and just working alone, you may find it adequate without boost, albeit, not the most economical waste water wise.

    What is your water pressure at the tap?

    What is the ratio between pure and waste water? On those r/os it should be about 3 litres waste to 1 litre of pure.

    The amount of Waste water will be the same with or without booster pump, with a booster it just produces both pure and waste faster.
