Energy Nut

Remember that the largest user of electricity for most cities is the water utility. It takes more energy to treat and pump water than any other use of power for most cities.

I have just moved, and want to again get a reverse osmosis water filtration system. I know that overall city water is safe and more highly regulated than bottled water. But, the water here simply does not taste very good. What my ? really is is the water waste. There is a system that claims to not waste so much water (as it puts in back into the hot water system, I believe). What is the best system to use from an environmental perspective?
