Any way to determine water pressure without gauge

I'm thinking of getting an RO unit soon for my shrimp but am concerned about my water PSI being on the 3rd floor. Any calculation you can do by how long it takes to fill up a 5g jug or something or is that only going to give me flow rate. If I need a booster pump, I need one but I'd rather know off hand before I buy the system.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Sump Pimp #2

Sounds like a time to spend a bit. Pressure gauges are less than ten dollars US at Lowe's. Easy to spend that amount on work and worry with less reliable results.
