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:

-  GPD capacity

-  Number of Filters

-  Brand

-  Type 


Counter Top and Under the Sink RO systems

Under the Sink RO SystemsIf 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 starts at only $195!
(incl. holding tank, faucet and filterset)

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 Reverse Osmosis Water treatment systems 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 Reverse Osmosis Water treatment 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. 

Reverse Osmosis Water treatment 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. 

Whole House RO Water Treatment System

CRYSTAL QUEST 200 GPD Reverse Osmosis System
In the past whole house reverse osmosis water filtration systems were too expensive for household use, because a whole house RO system was basically a commercial RO system installed in the home. These systems were bulky and expensive (some priced close to $25,000). Today, our whole-house RO systems are more compact, with footprints as small as a water softener. These days the whole house RO water systems are much more affordable.

A complete Whole House RO system starts at $995 (200GPD)
(completely assembled and shipped ready for a trouble-free installation and start up). All units are factory tested prior to delivery to ensure quality and performance.

Additional cost will apply to listed price for custom modification based on the quality of your incoming water and the expected amount of gallons used per day. Fill out our Water Condition Questionnairesend it to and get a customized offer from our RO experts.
