    Budget Under the Counter 75 GPD Reverse Osmosis (RO) System

    Please do note that this unit has been specially designed for clients on a tight budget.


    The Budget Under the Counter Reverse Osmosis (RO) system is one of the most complete under the counter systems available. It has the ability to eliminate up to 99.8% of harmful contaminants in water such as bacteria, viruses, lead, radium, chlorine, and arsenic. It makes use of multi-stage filtration technology.

    With the RO system, you can rest assured that your drinking water is clean, clear and healthy.

    Note however that this is a very budget focussed unit and many of the components are of lower quality than our other units.

    The Budget Under the Counter Reverse Osmosis System is recommended for municipal source waters only. If you want to use alternative source water such as a borehole or rivers, then we would recommend looking at the Silver Reverse Osmosis System or Gold Reverse Osmosis system.

    The Budget Under the Counter 75 GPD Reverse Osmosis (RO) System Includes the following:

    • 5 Stage Reverse Osmosis system (without a Booster Pump)
    • 75 GPD (Gallons Per Day) Reverse Osmosis Membrane
    • Standard Pre-Filters for municipal water (Sediment Filter, Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), & Activated Carbon Block)
    • Pressure Protection Valve 



    • Maintenance is easy and low cost
    • Filtered water tastes and smells great.
    • Promotes a healthy lifestyle
    • Hidden away out of sight, only a chrome tap is visible
    • Removes 99.8% of all contaminants in water
    • Flushing of the membrane is done automatically
    • The low mineral content water is great for detoxifying your body
    • The low mineral content water helps to prevent and dissolve kidney stones
    • Delivers up to 283.91 Liters (75 Gallons) of filtered water per day

    Below is a list and description of the five different stages of the Budget Under the Counter 75 GPD Reverse Osmosis (RO) System Stages: 

    • Stage 1: 10 Inch Sediment Filter - Removes Particles, Dirt, Sand, Mud, Rust, and other large visible Particles in the water.
    • Stage 2: 10 Inch Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) - Absorbs Chlorine and Organic molecules (bad odors) from the water. 
    • Stage 3: 10 Inch Activated Carbon Block - Further Reduces Chlorine and Organic Molecules in the source water. It also comes with a 5-micron carbon filter to capture any carbon that breaks off.
    • Stage 4: Reverse Osmosis Membrane - Removes bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and reduces the mineral content (TDS) of water. 
    • Stage 5: T33 Taste and Odor Filter - Absorbs any organic molecules that come off of the RO membrane. 

    Keep in mind:

    • The Budget Under the Counter 75 GPD Reverse Osmosis (RO) System requires a minimum of 3 bar water pressure to operate correctly. If your water pressure is low then you will need a system with a Booster Pump. Keep in mind that the Booster Pump will require electricity to operate. 
    • Please do note that the system does not come standard with a pressure protection valve, however, the pressure protection valve is pre-selected as an additional option in the options list. We highly recommend adding the pressure protection valve if you know that you have some pressure irregularities on the water supply line that the system is going to be installed on.
    • Since this is a budget unit, the pressurized tank is constructed from a plastic material.
    • The plastic pressurized tank consists of 3.2 Gallons (12.1 Litres) which means that the tank can hold a total of 2.23 Gallons (8.45 Litres) of water.
    • The system has a water wastage rate of up to 4:1 due to constant flushing of the membrane, so for every 1 Liter of clean, filtered water produced, up to 4 liters will be used to flush the system.
    • The Budget Under the Counter 75 GPD Reverse Osmosis (RO) System removes 99.8% of the minerals from water, including those that are good for you. However, a mineral injector can be added to the system to replace some of the minerals if this is of serious concern.
    • An important thing to remember before installing any filtration systems is to check which pipe under the counter is bringing the water to the tap and what size the source piping is. The standard household piping size is normally 1/2" (12.7mm) or 3/4" (19mm) thick. Some older houses have copper piping size instead of a newer system and in such cases, the special attachment will be required to install The Budget Under the Counter 75 GPD Reverse Osmosis (RO) System to the copper piping. In order to ensure that you do not have to buy additional adapters due to the connections not matching the piping, please check what type and size your piping is before ordering a filtration system.
    • A hole will have to be drilled into the counter or table where the RO tap will be placed.
    • The filters all have a certain lifespan and must be replaced to ensure that the system works effectively, specifically the Sediment filterGranular Activated Carbon, Carbon Block and T33 Carbon (Taste & Odour Filter) which must be replaced every 6 to 8 months.
    • If the source water contains bacteria it may start to grow on the membrane and biofouling may occur.
