Yes.  I suggest you take a long hard look at Deionizers.  Compare the 
long-term cost of new filters for the RO vs. recharging chemicals for DI 
resins, then figure in the cost per gallon of the RO "waste water" that you 
will be dumping down the drain unless you can find a way to recycle it (DI 
doesn't have waste water.  Well, okay, a couple gallons when you first 
re-charge). Also consider the impact of losing the waste water from your 
local water supply, and the community in general.  In some parts of the 
world, and even here in the US, the actual cost of water runs way beyond the 
cash price on your water bill.
