We do.

However, RO water from a pressure tank sometimes has insufficient pressure to work well with ice makers.

The easiest thing to do it to tap into a cold water line - run 1/4" tubing to an inline taste and odor filter, and run the 1/4" tube to your icemaker. Using flexible copper tubing would provide the best security.

Water that is free of chlorine (that's what the inline taste and odor filter will take care of) will produce ice cubes that taste fine - much better than using tap water.

If you were intent on using RO water, I'd try it using a FULL pressure tank. If that doesn't work with your refidgerator, you would need a delivery pump between the tank and the ice maker.

We have everything you'd need for both options on the website.

We did. Apparently it didn't make it to the new site - I'll get that taken care of today. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
