What is the cost of an RO Drinking Water System?

When looking for the best drinking water system, one might wonder what they will be expecting to spend for this system. The answer depends on a few factors like,:


Counter Top and Under the Sink RO systems

If you are looking for an RO system for drinking and cooking, then a counter top system or an under the sink system will work great. 

Most people would be looking at a typical under the sink Reverse Osmosis System.

--> A complete under the sink RO system (incl. holding tank, faucet and filterset) starts at only $195!

Depending on the brand, the type and how many stages of filtration you want, prices for a good quality under the sink RO system vary between $195 and $695.

If you use more water than a typical home, you may want to upgrade to a larger GPD capacity, or add another storage tank, which would add on 50-100 dollars. The complete system will have everything included for the installation, which most people can figure out fairly easily. Most RO’s in this price range will have 3-5 filters which will give you great quality water. If you want to add filters or in some cases add alkaline filtration, then you can expect to pay a little more. 

One thing with RO systems is that they do need to replace the filters approximately every year (depending on your usage). Most replacement filters only cost around $60-80 per set. If your water has more sediment than usual or If you have very hard water, then it could be a good idea to add a sediment filter before the RO system. Still, even with the added cost of up keeping an RO system, the price for such a high quality filtration system is extremely low. 

RO systems have one of the highest rejection rates out of all water filtration systems. The cost for the water is very low, and you would be paying much more for bottled water throughout the year. If you plan on replacing bottled water for a Reverse Osmosis system, then you can expect to save a bundle. You will get gallons of water for pennies with an RO system. And for the water quality? You can expect the Reverse Osmosis System to give you better quality water than most bottled water companies. You will be amazed at how good water tastes after it goes through an RO system. 

Another great thing about an under the sink Reverse Osmosis System is that you likely will not have to pay for a plumber to install it. 95% of home owners will be able to complete the installation with easy to follow instructions. 

In the end there is very little extra expenses for an RO system other than the initial purchase. Considering the quality of water that you get from an RO system, the investment is very affordable.
