Reverse Osmosis setup


I would like to install a 6 stage RO system in my home and am wondering if I can supply more than one outlet with the system. I would like to install it in the furnace room in the basement and have an RO tap in my bathroom, kitchen, and also feed the refrigerator water dispenser.
I suppose the longest run of line would be about 20 feet. Will the system have enough pressure to supply all 3 outlets as is or is there something else I would have to do like build a manifold, etc?

Reverse Osmosis setup


I would not feel good about feeding so much, so far. The most I have ever done was a tank in the basement feeding the sink faucet and water line to the frig. The longest run (frig) was about 12'. The pressure was at the absolute minimum. Actually, the auto ice maker tray would not completely fill so you had about 5/8 of an ice cube.
While it's an additional expense AND you need an electrical hookup, you can look at a booster pump. After a quick Google, here's an example:

Good luck
