They are available at almost any aquarium supply website or if you are looking for a deal I have seen some good priced units at eBay. Here is one website that has a fairly large selection to give you an idea of what’s out there.

is there gonna be a big difference between the stages?

your going to want it to micron filter, membrane, carbon, and a DI chamber. the RO units for a house will usually also have an extra chamber that helps with taste, this isnt needed but can be removed. getting one with a TDS meter wouldnt hurt, as your going to want your unit producing 0 (or as close to 0) on a TDS meter

Hey I have found many on ebay 4 stage,5 stage within my budget $200 or less or is that too cheap for a good one?

i wouldnt worry about the price, as some good things can come cheap. look into the brand names, if it includes NEW filters and what filters it uses.
