Considering a reverse osmosis system. Anybody have one and have any feedback? Are there better more cost effective systems out there? Any input is appreciated. I dont want to drink tap water anymore. Thanks.

You don't need a RO system. They end up wasting more water as reject water. Get a particle filter, two good Carbon filters, one lead and one lag, you change out the lead when it's due, and put the new one in the lag position. If your really worried get a uv light, which will help breakdown anything else.

Jason,

I have one I bought some years back. Ended up using canister filters instead since we have good water here. You can have it if you like. I can get some more info on it when I get back to work on Sunday if you'd like.

Thanks Ray very nice offer, thinking about an RO system, also interested in a machine called ecolo blue, it pulls water out of the atmosphere, but they are spendy, like more than a grand. Will pm you if i can take you up on that, thanks again. just not sure what im doing yet.

Jason,

No worries. It's just sitting on a shelf in the firehouse. I opened it to look at it at the time and that's it. It's an RO unit, but looked smaller than most other ones I've seen. Yours if you want it. My only thoughts are possible parts issues down the road. Or you can use it as a disposable unit.
