My water pressure SUCKS! but I can still fill a 5 gallon in roughly 3 hrs, where other units are out of the question because if you have too low pressure they won't work at all.

I have sooo much junk in our water, I have to buy a new filter roughly every 6 months, but for me it's worth it.

I also bastardized some fittings and hooked it up to the shower head in our spare bathroom.
I have to chime in on this as well since I bought a Pure Water Club RO+DI unit (100G/day (same one that Soothing Shrimp listed)) and it is the bomb! You can't beat the price either (compared to other systems out there)! Took my 400+ TDS water down to 0 TDS. I was blown away. All my water changes now consist of 1/3 RODI water and 2/3 Tap water.

I just use the faucet adapter on our utility sink and fill up 5G buckets until I need them, then just transfer whatever I need into 1G milk jugs and lug those around instead.
