I went from collecting rain water to an RO unit. -More consistent
supply without the worry of contaminated water from the first flush of
rain coming off a dirty roof. There was a noticeable improvement in the
growth of sphagnum for me. My Ro unit came from a company in Sarrasota,
FL. I also have info from a place out in California, mine cost about
120$ and produces maybe 35 gallons in 24 hours.
