Reverse Osmosis System

Is there any member who have installed Reverse Osmosis System in NYC? Asking as I want to hook up 1 and I lack DIY need to come over and see how this is done or perhaps if you could come to me and install 1 for me...can compensate with $ or plants...

I have limited space and can't drill holes here and there....

You can buy something like a "faucet adapter diverter valve" on auction sites or RO websites and no drilling required.

Have you considered using fish tank service guys? I know quite a bit of them who can install the unit for you. If you are not picky, you can get low cost units on ebay like a $100 and pay the guy the other parts and labor. Without drilling holes, I think most likely, you will need food grade water container, a float switch an adapter to your faucets(or they would directly cut and tape it off your water line under your sink in the kitchen or restroom.)
