d2mini ‐ Nice choice. Eventually you might want to add the 150gpd conversion kit which will not only double your output but also save you a lot of waste water. Just make sure you have water pressure of at least 50 otherwise you may need to get a booster pump and they aren't cheap.
maxelenbaas ‐ Yeah it works soo well! 1 tds out the membrane, 0 out of the di, im going to the upgrade and use a spectra pure membrane that should handle that waste water really nice and i get about 65 psi from the city, so im super lucky
