    Default gas powered small reverse osmosis?

    Does anyone know of a small (hobby size) RO that runs on gas or could run off a portable generator for my remote sugar shack? Thanks

    Ray makes 125 -1000 GPH gas units, and he recently started making one even smaller. Call 440-422-3047 and ask him for details.

    Is he the one that uses the pressure washer pumps on the ro? That would worry me as being not rated nsf etc could be a prob down the road as we face more regulation
