Sorry, but you are talking about flow rate, not pressure.

12lpm is good enough for one side of the answer. But you also need to test this where you are taking water from for the r/o.

You need a pressure gauge on a tap to see water pressure. Screwfix and other plumbing outlets sell them.

But you also need to supply more info - how much water do you need to produce etc.

There are low pressure membranes but you get more consistent water quality with the same constant pressure  50-100 psi is ok best to speak to a specialist like Doug Atkinson @doug atkinson Pressure and flow are both important but it also depends on how much you need to produce and your water  TDS as well ,which system will be right for you .

To illustrate; you have asked if my car will pull a caravan; it has 4 cylinders. You need a supply a lot more info before someone can help you.

What is your tap water TDS?

Are you on a water meter?

What is your water pressure?

Have you a place to store water?

Have you got a van?

Are you going the way of a van mount?

etc.

Then when we have more answers and identified the system for you, do you have the budget to buy it?

Tap TDs was 220ppm so will have to get a pressure tester from Screwfix then

Then you will also know how much water you use a day.
