Default HomeBuilt Small RO

Good afternoon all,

After seeing Ogdens thread I though I would share the RO that I started to build this spring. this one is a little different in that it use the under the counter hardware.

I'm still missing the pre heater, not really sure how to do the heating just yet. and I'm running into cycling problems with the low pressure switch on the float box and the electric valve on the leg that goes back to the sap tank. I think i need to add a small pressurized storage tank at the float box to smooth out the cycling.

Right now it is sprawled out over the work bench. I think when I'm done it will be small enough to carry in one hand to store in a warm location.

anyways here is the drawing of it.
