Jack FWIW the UV system works it has been used in Europe for years to treat water for municipalities and gaining popuatry here in the US here the City Of Houston uses the system now to cut back on the use of chlorine. 
We had it on our pool in Scottsdale because my wife has a reaction to chlorine

Thanks for the information.  I had thought about installing an RO in the bus also, but our system requires a minimum of 40 PSI water pressure and recommends 50 PSI.  Since our bus water system is usually 35-40, I don't think it would work very well. Plus the system we have would take up considerable under counter space that we are already using for other storage needs.  Jack

Hmmmm, I've not had that experience with needed that much pressure to run an R/O system.  We will have one in BigBus and currently run several in our home.  The higher PSI will produce water faster, but you surely are not required to have a minimum of 40 psi in any system we've installed.  Shoot, a lot of homes on wells only run 35 psi on their low end.

We installed an r/o in my mom's motorhome and it's always worked great for her.  The concern is often more with the amount of wastewater produced into the waste tank than water pressure. 

Perhaps the system you are investigating is different. 

As for UV, well, it can disinfect, that's for sure, but it does not filter out so many of the contaminents that an r/o membrane can.  Also, although R/O unit can reject some bacteria, it is strongly advised that a bacteria problem be treated separately from the filtering process and any continuous bacterial problem should be corrected asap.  Do NOT rely on any "treatment" to continually protect your drinking water, find the source of contamination and correct it if any way possible. . .IMHO, Christy HIcks

Most people buy a RO system and I have a RO system ,thinking it will  remove the chlorine in water most manufactures are careful about the wording like our Culligan reads reduces the taste and color of chlorine.

Working around water treatment plants most use a gas chlorine to treat the water and I always wondered how you would remove a gas from water with a RO system and filters
