4 stage RO systems are good enough.. If you want, 5 stage which has a post carbon filter. But honestly more filter system you buy, more cost to replace the filters.

The normal typical RO system is better for repair down the road..

Make sure that flow restrictor is replaceable if you buy integrated units.

Do you think this better than the kinetico system?
I am in the market for one.
Which system is this? Link?

Actually never mind. Looks like this kinetico unit is almost $2000 lol. I don’t want water that badly.

I understand use in labs and situations where you need "pure water". However if this is for residential use, then isn't it overkill? Most municipalities in Canada have got really good water treatment systems. Plus if you wish to take out the added chloride and fluoride, a simple filter will do.
So why reverse osmosis?
Because not everyone lives in a condo in Toronto.

No ones mentioned the most obvious and common use case. When growing legal weed with hydroponics or aeroponics its best to use low ppm, filtered water.

Because the water tastes AMAZING. Not to mention that some of us live in municipalities that have extremely hard water that requires softening. Once softened it has extremely high sault content. Do you like 3 spoons of sault in your coffee in the morning?

Crazy question for a noob: does this thing have the ability to make lake water drinkable at a cottage? I have a couple sediment filters + UV filter, but would this final step make it drinkable?

Just installed this. Noticed that when you turn off the water supply to the unit, the filtered water in the storage tank does not flow out when the tap is on. I was under the impression that the water in the storage tank is always under pressure?

Ah this will totally explain why this unit water flow is slow compared to conventional ones.

Has anyone done any cost analysis on these water filtration system, especially, around the cost of the filter itself? The more stages it has, the more filters needed to be replace. Some filters last have a 3-6 months, and some 1 year.

I gave up looking on buying one due to the "high" cost of the filters, but if anyone can prove me wrong, let me know, I might look at one soon, perhaps this brand as it's getting pretty nice reviews....

If you are cost effective person. Stick with regular conventional 4 or 5 stage RO systems. 200 to 250 for the unit.

I have already suggested that even repair, you can repair easily by yourself as parts are widely available. These one piece integrated units, you are stuck having company to repair it or you would be stuck to buy entire new unit. Not worth it in my opinion other than the good looks and advertised space saving.

Any regular RO system. With UV sanitizer will be drinkable for cottage. But you must have UV for untreated waters.
