Honestly, I don't know anything about that.
RO systems are very common in the southwest due to our extreme hard water issues. And the tap water just tastes like crap because all the stuff they have to put in it to make it "safe" to drink.
If you decide to install one, remember there is alot of discard water. For every gallon, 1/3 is used (drinkable) and 2/3 is discarded (drained). My in-laws run their discarded water thru an exterior wall and water their back yard with it. A jungle in the desert, to give you an idea. But if the system is installed in the middle of the home, then it is usally tapped into the sink drain. Not alot of basements here.
As far as the metal thing goes, I think you will be fine. All the lineset is 1/4" poly. Disclaimer follows: talk to the RO distributors in your area and see what works best. I'm sure you already knew that.

I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.
Or, on the other hand.....
Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.
To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:
1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.
Now, let's have some fun!
Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.
It always seems impossible until it's done.
