hmm about $100-200 but can def. get more expensive then that. i paid $20 for mine from some guy but had to replace all filters which was i think like $70-80 but it was a 50gpd.

look at the GPD (gallon per DAY) rates, which will pretty much indicate price.

i dont know if you posted your tanks size, but a 35gpd or 50gpd should be good enough.

You can get everything you need for an adequate system including the Brute Container, pump, float valve, & TDS meter for under $200. Go to ebay and search "0 ppm" , "RO/DI" or "Reverse Osmosis"

Sounds good, thanks for all the help! I'm planning on getting a 55 gallon tank. I guess one last question (for this thread) is if I have a 55 gallon tank and a RO unit that produces 35 gallons a day, could I put 35 gallons of water in one day and the other 20 gallons in the next day? Of course I would mix the salt separately. I would only have live sand and a few pounds of live rock to start with.

that should work. also only put one piece of live rock into the tank. if you put more it'll make the tank stink for a while.
