Default Carbonation pump

Could a carbonation pump be used in a homemede ro? They are equiped with a high pressure pump.

Bexley, our home build is set up with a 3/4 HP marathon pump and a 330 GPH procon pump so looks like you're on the right track. I'm sure its overkill for the single post xle-4040 we are using now but our plan is to go to 2 posts which will likely happen this year.
