For potable water I plan on installing an RO with PH balancing stage. The PH adds calcium and Mg back into the water - since RO strips out everything.

Excellent idea. I just started using this "remineralizer".

I plan on installing the RO in a bin rather than under the sink and run the lines for supply. I have not pinned down what I will do with the wastewater. The units I buy are 1:5 waste water to filtered. Normally in a house the wastewater goes down the drain. In an RV I may capture it and recycle it or just let it drip on the ground. Happy to hear from anyone who's handled this.

I suggest under-the-sink unless it's impractical.

I run my RO waste water back into my water tank. Zero waste.

Some - if not most of you - probably think it's way overkill.

Hardly. Here's my water filtration system:

[image]

A = Watts pressure regulator + separate back flow preventer.

B = Big Blue 5-micron sediment filter. Why 5-micron? Because that's the smallest recommended size that can be cleaned over and over.

C = Big Blue carbon block filter.

D = Water softener.

E = Water flow meter (for the UV filter).

F = 8 GPM UV filter.
