    Not used one myself so can say what they are like. I will say though 300 gpd ro's are very slow to produce large volumes of pure quickly for wfp work so you would be better of getting a 4021 or 4040 ro/di setup.

    That works out at 0.78736565 ltr per min optimal performance so is slow compared to something like this..

    At the tail end of the day the 4021 is half the 4040 in size but the 4040 components don't cost that much extra. If you bought a 4021 and later wanted to increase production rates then adding another 4021 housing is the easiest option, but 2 membrane replacements further down the line are going to cost much more than a single 4040 replacement membrane.

    We have been using a 4040 for the past 2 1/2 years with 50psi water pressure using an HF5 membrane. We don't use a booster pump and get around 2 litres per minute with a 50/50 pure to waste ratio. So should I need more water, which is very doubtful at this moment in time, adding a booster pump will increase production rates by a good margin.

    I would also go for 20" prefilters rather than the cheaper 10" ones on a 4040 as it reduces the maintenance side of filter replacement - a 20" Fiberdyne carbon block prefilter has a service life of 78,000 litres where as the same Fiberdyne filter in 10" has a 38,000 liter service life. A 10" Fiberdyne replacement filter cost half the price a 20" does so there isn't a component cost advantage.

    In the good old days before the 4040 we had a 450GPD RoMan type r/o. I 'fired' it up the other day and boy is it slow. So I can imagine that a 300GPD is going to be even slower. The only reason why we just managed with a 450GPD is that is was a static system and so could run all the time and switch off automatically when the IBC tank was full.
