Default Convert undersink RO system for sap?

I have an Aqua Flow undersink RO system and want to convert it for sap. Is it do-able?

If so, I imagine I will need a pump (which one?) and new filters. But where do I connect the pump output?

Any advice is much appreciated.

How many gal/day is it rated now? Divide that by 24. Then contact the makers of The Bucket RO to see if they have a membrane to fit it, or H2O or MES. To add a pump, be aware of what pressure the membrane canister is made to handle. It might only be for up to 50 or 60 PSI, like most well pumps give.

I see that everyone uses the Aquatec 8800 booster pump. Amazon canít get it to me in time. Do you have a suggestion for another pump?

I opened up the housings on the undersink RO and found that two of them were heavily coated with rust / iron / sediment / gunk that I couldn't thoroughly wash out so I'm going the DIY route from scratch.
