US Water Systems - Affordable Watermaker?

Does anyone have any insider knowledge or experience with this product. It's an $1100 110V watermaker by "US Water Systems"

Just from a quick glance it appears to be the type intended to clean municipal water supplies
I.E. A low pressure, fresh water RO system, and not a high pressure desalination RO system.

I agree, It's a priceey Fresh water RO, which only needs about 200 psig. Salt water RO needs about 850-900 psig.
