RO unit question

Are the units sold at Lowes or Home Depo good enough for aquarium use?

Shop Whirlpool Reverse Osmosis Filtration System at Lowes.com

yes it will work. i looked at the one you're reffering to and it doesn't say how many gallons per day it makes. if you add a di cartridge to it you will have a real good system. if you are also using it for drinking, the drinking water is the output of the ro and before the di cartridge. the di is only for aquarium water. here's another system that makes 50 gals/day and is a 5 stage vs a 4 stage at LOWES for reference
