How to Size a Commercial or Whole House Reverse Osmosis System Hi, I’m Gary the Water Guy and I own The Water Filter Estore and The Water Store in Midland, Ontario. If you haven’t already done so, now would be a great time to check out my video “How does a Commercial/Whole House Reverse Osmosis system work?” The first requirement is knowing how many gallons of treated water per day you’ll require. For a commercial application you likely will have a good handle of what you will need per day. Keep in mind how much water you’ll need all at once or spread out throughout the day, allow for seasonal fluctuations, peak demands and future growth. For a Whole House application, first determine your water requirements. Most people use about 75 gallons of water per day. This includes drinking, food preparation, cleaning, clothes washing, toilet use, showers etc. You might consider by-passing the clothes washer and toilets if possible to conserve water. So a family of four will need to have 4 X 75 = 300 gallons per day. RO systems typically produce water at a rate lower than it is consumed, so the RO will need to run during times of no water usage and store up water for later use. The storage should hold a one day supply or about 300 gallons for the example above. What size RO do I need? Reverse Osmosis units are expensive so it’s important not to oversize the unit. On the other hand, if the unit is too small, it will have to run excessively. I recommend sizing the RO so it does not need to run for more that 4-5 hours per day. This sizing will reduce wear and tear on the pump and motor, provide for unexpected peaks, and allow for increased future demand. There are a number of factors that affect the output of an RO. You should be aware that the rated output of the RO is seldom the actual output in the field. Cold water and high total dissolved solids (TDS) will reduce this output. So generally speaking, you should expect about ½ the rated production. The following will help you determine the size unit you need, using the above info as an example: For 300 gallons per day, produced over 5 hours is 60 gallons per hour. Since we are expecting ½ of that output we would need a system capable of producing RO water at the rate of 120 gallons per hour or 2,880 gallons per day. Since this is between a standard 2400 and 4800 gpd system you would choose the larger size.
