[Homeroast] Distilled H2O vs RO

I have a RO system in my kitchen.  Cost was around $200 plus installation.  Need to change filters that are part of the system every six months.  It has a tank that stores 4 gallons so that you always have plenty of water despite the slow RO process.

Thanks Steve, for the info, but how affordable is a RO system for home use?  You can find a used water still for around $200 on eBay that makes a gallon of distilled water in about 3 hours.  Last I checked, I couldn't even dream of affording any type of RO system for home use.
