Default Water filter help and suggestion.

So i am making the leap to a herms single tier brewstand from brewing in the confines of my kitchen.I currently use l RO water and most of the time 80% RO to 20% SW building up my own profile.I would love to continue to use RO water but the amount of time it would take to produce water is my main concern.What can i do to get as close as i can to RO water without the wait?I am just in the starting stage of all this but was interested to see what everyone one else does.Is there a RO sytem that can work as fast as a simple two stage?

There are some systems that are faster than others. Mine is rated as a 75 gpd system, but I normally get about 3 gallons an hour of RO water out of it. It's a 3 stage RO system, with no pressure tank or DI.

I have been looking at the hydropro stealth ro 200.Claims to kick out 40 gallons an hour and the price is pretty good compared to the box store kits.Never occurred to me until last night to check out the hydro shops in the area

Stick with the less expensive smaller system, but add a resivoir. I Use a 55 gal plastic pickle barrel and that way, always have massive amounts of potable water on hand for brewing or emergency. You can get an automatic float stop off ebay for cheap.
