I'm going to put my 2 cents in too hope you don't mind......
If you are going to buy a RO unit spend the extra $$$ and get one that doesn't waste will save you money in the long run! The more your well pump comes on the more your (or your dads) electric bill will be. Trust me on this one, I have a 50gal a day RO unit (at it's best) and I use a lot of water! I'm also on a well! Another good point to make is with only a 50gal a day RO unit I always have to thank ahead. The Deion 200R RO unit puts out 200gal a day and you can regenerate the resin filters. (in other words your well pump will not come on as must saving you money and you have a lot more usable water)Here is a quote from

This three-stage tap water filtration system produces pure water without producing any waste water. The first stage is a carbon prefilter to remove chlorine and other organic matter. The second stage is a Cation resin capable of removing positively charges ions (calcium, magnesium, and other metals) from the water. The third stage is an Anion resin that will remove all negatively charged ions (phosphates, silicates, carbonates, bicarbonates, chloride, and nitrates). The result is removal of 99% of all ions in tap water giving pure water for use in any type of aquarium application. Each resin has color indicators to signal exhaustion. Since the resins are in seperate chambers, they can be regenerated and reused over and over. Capable of producing 200 gallons per day, with regeneration of the resin, it costs just pennies per gallon to produce pure water. Easily connects to a faucet and includes Jaco tubing to direct the water flow.
