Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?

If you are on a budget and want a great RODI system at an affordable price, we would always go with the BRS 4 Stage Value Plus RO/DI system.  With the included pressure gauge, and TDS meter it takes a standard RODI system that you are hoping and guessing makes quality water to knowing that it is making water suitable for your aquarium.  With the Value Plus RODI system you will know that your RODI system is making quality water, as well as when to service, and maintain the filters.  For well water, and most city water applications that are treated with chlorine the 4 Stage Value Plus System is our ultimate recommendation.

BRS 4 Stage Value Systems are perfect for reefers who have water treated with chlorine, low volume chloramines and most well water. If you are unsure what your water is treated with try a quick test strip or checkout the BRS Universal Line which treats all types of water for virtually any size tank and you know you are covered.

Product Questions

After the holidays where over i picked this up for my tank that was in extreme need of it for the fact that the city water in Baltimore is very dirty and i have to say it works amazingly. I can see the difference from my coral to the now vanishing algae i had growing all over. My question is that i have my RO/DI system hooked up to a utility sink that has a lot of pressure so i don't really have a limit with the pressure but i wanted to know if there is an optimum level/ how much is to much pressure?
Question by: Andy Coyer on Jan 26, 2016 2:48:00 PM
Great news that the unit is working great! the ideal pressure will range between 50-75 PSI for efficiency and life of the membrane. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 3, 2016 2:47:00 PM
How often do you replace the filters and can i purchase them
Thank You Manny
Question by: Manny on Mar 17, 2016 6:42:00 AM
Great question!
The filters changing time will depend on water quality however the bottom 3 filters (Sediment, Carbon Block, and DI resin) typically will last 6-9 months and I have included the kit below.

Additionally the RO membrane will need to be replaced less often closer to 2 years.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 18, 2016 9:29:00 AM
With the 4 stage value plus ro/di unit i'm hearing you shouldnt drink the water because of the di,is the waste water before the di and is that safe to drink
Question by: Corey on Feb 8, 2016 6:00:00 PM
Great question!
The waste water will have higher TDS than your standard tap water and ideally it would be safer to drink your tap water over the waste water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 10, 2016 1:47:00 PM
Does the 4 stage ro/di have a valve so you can use either ro or di ?
Question by: DANIEL BOUGH on Jan 27, 2016 3:09:00 PM
Great question,
Our units do not have the built in ability to split. This can be achieved by adding a John guest 3 way ball valve.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 3, 2016 6:40:00 PM
Is the unit supposed to keep draining water when not making water? I noticed mine still drains even after I'm done making new water. My unit is approximately 3 years old, is there an auto shutoff part I may need to replace?
Question by: Shawn Coley on Jan 24, 2017 11:39:00 AM
Great question! Yes, it sounds like your Auto Shut Off valve is failing and needs replacement. That is normally the problem when the waste water continues to run after a reservoir is full. The proper replacement is in the link below. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 28, 2017 7:35:00 AM
What is the amount of waste water per ro/di gallon produced?
Question by: Dru on May 11, 2016 6:23:00 PM
Great question! This unit will produce roughly 4 gallons of waste water for every 1 gallon of product water collected when running at 65PSI.
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 11, 2016 6:40:00 PM
Where is the tds meter getting the "in" and "out" reading from?
Question by: bradley belser on Feb 9, 2017 8:33:00 PM
Awesome question! The "IN" TDS reading is right after the RO Membrane and the "OUT" line is after the DI Resin. This helps you keep an eye on the rejection rate of the RO Membrane as well as ensure you are getting 0-TDS out of your DI Resin. :-)
Answer by: Admin (Admin) on Feb 10, 2017 12:46:00 PM
I just ordered this system and i had a question how do we use the flash vavle ? And how often ? And do we need to disconnect The membrane from the other filters to flash it out ? Thank u
Question by: edmond mahmoodi on Feb 2, 2017 3:45:00 PM
No answers yet. Be the first to answer the question!
I bought the 4 stage value plus RO/DI system, but I was thinking of placing (the unit) inside my garage and just run the red line in there. The problem is that it is about 25 feet away from my water source faucet (garden faucet). My question is, will it loose pressure the longer the red line is away from the source, or it won't make a difference? It currently sets at about 40 psi.
Question by: Ricardo on Nov 8, 2016 10:32:00 AM
Great question! Although there will be some pressure loss at that distance, it will be quite negligible. However, 40 PSI is far below the optimal performance rating of 60-80 PSI. For proper filtration and rejection rates, you may need a booster pump. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 8, 2016 11:11:00 AM
Is there a fitting I could get that would attach to my water line from the valve to the washer?

Also does it come with a float valve?
Question by: ramon rivera on Jan 29, 2016 9:49:00 PM
Great question!
To connect to a washer in many cases an adapter such as the garden hose utility sink adapter can be used. The 4 stage system will not come with a float valve however it can be purchased separately. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 9, 2016 4:03:00 PM
Will I have zero TDS if not using a DI resin? Is the DI resin used for drinking water purposes?

Question by: Bill on Nov 8, 2016 12:21:00 PM
Great question! The amount of TDS removed by the RO membrane is completely dependent on your city's municipal water composition. It is not guaranteed that you will have zero TDS with these units, however you can expect a 97%-98% rejection rate of TDS if you run the unit within the optimal 60-80psi range at 77 degrees. Again, this is completely dependent on the amount of TDS from your source water.

DI water is not recommended for drinking, as it can remove electrolytes and minerals from your body over prolonged periods of time. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 8, 2016 12:52:00 PM
I have the BRS 4 Stage Value Plus RO/DI System - 75GPD with chloramine block. Prior to our home move, we had a water pressure just over 60 PSI. Our new home now looks to have a PSI just over 40. I have seen that the recommended water pressure should be 60 PSI. How will 40 PSI affect the water quality out of the RO/DI? If it is a negative result, do you have any suggestions to increase pressure going into the unit? Thanks in advance for any information on this.
Question by: Bob on Nov 3, 2015 8:10:00 AM
Great question!
40 PSI is right at the low end of the PSI rating for our systems. Our highest recommendation is to give the permeate pump which uses the waste water to increase the flow into the system. I have included a link below, Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Nov 3, 2015 3:41:00 PM
What is the maximum pressure that this RODI system can handle? I had low pressure (35-40psi) and I added the booster pump which increased the pressure to around 85-90psi. Not sure if its okay.

Thank you!
Question by: Sumant on Jan 18, 2016 4:34:00 PM
Great question!
The maximum pressure recommended is in the high 70-80s 65 is often the most optimal for the membrane. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 26, 2016 7:24:00 PM
I used to use my BRS 4 at my house which was well water and seemed to use up the DI resin very quickly. Now I use it with city water and have gone through about 50 gallons of purified water with no color change yet at all and my TDS reads 0. Is it working ok?
Question by: Geoff on Jul 4, 2016 10:12:00 PM
It is very common for well water to have an excess of CO2 which is not easily removed by the membrane and will be removed by DI resin. The CO2 can consume DI Resin pretty quickly and by moving to city water the CO2 content is usually much lower allowing the DI resin to last much longer (in most cases). The TDS meters are very accurate and hardly ever go out of calibration. If the final output of the RODI system is 0 TDS then the DI resin is working. You can always test the TDS meter on a different source of water (tap water) that will have a much higher amount of TDS and the meter should show a reading.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Jul 7, 2016 9:37:00 AM
The carbon filter canister was broke due to freezing weather, which replacement canister should I purchase? Also, is it still ok to use the filter media after frozen?
Question by: Zhuowei Chen on Jan 18, 2017 12:50:00 PM
Great question! You will want the 10" Reverse Osmosis Canister 1⁄4" Ports listed in the link below. We do not carry the canister separately without the lid, so you do have to purchase the entire combo. Also, because of the expansion of the ice crystals, it is going to be best for you to change all of the filters, especially the RO membrane. The ice crystals more than likely has damaged that membrane.
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 20, 2017 9:31:00 AM
Is there a way to turn the system off if I don't need 75 gpd
Question by: Zach Blocker on Dec 31, 2016 12:11:00 PM
Great question! The easiest way to stop flow would be to shut off the water feeding the unit. If you are using the faucet adapter, you can simply shut off the water from the faucet. If you are using a more permanent connection, a 1/4" inline ball valve would work as well. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 4, 2017 2:34:00 PM
After running the RODI, is it okay to leave any left over water in the tubing or is there a way to clean them?
Question by: Kai on Feb 1, 2016 10:26:00 PM
Great question!
It is certainly okay to leave water in the housing and tubing however if storing for use longer than 1 month you may want to inspect for bacteria growth or other issues. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 24, 2016 3:59:00 PM
Is there a way to dial down pressure using the flush kit ball valve let's say if it is reading 100 psi with a booster pump could you open the ball valve to get the pressure to 80psi to be safe for most homes?
Question by: James Griffith on Apr 18, 2016 8:13:00 PM
Great question.
If you have a booster pump and the PSI is too high you can adjust the booster pump with an allen key to reduce the PSI. It is not recommended using any ball valve to adjust pressure. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 26, 2016 12:20:00 PM
I am planning on purchasing a new RO/DI system. How hard is the assembly from the box to a working state if i were to use it from the faucet(connector is included, right?) .
Thank you so much!
Question by: Kenneth on Jan 9, 2017 10:39:00 PM
Great question! All of our RO/DI units come pre-assembled! The only thing you need to do is install the adapter to your sink (which is included) and install the feed line to the filtration unit. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 11, 2017 3:44:00 PM
I would like to know if the ro/di water comming out of the blue hose is recommendable for human consumption? If not, how can I get only ro water out of the system?
Question by: Edson Jerez on Mar 24, 2016 10:01:00 PM
Great question!
Our units with TDS meter, pressure gauge and DI are not recommended for human consumption as they are not NSF certified. If you remove the TDS meter and pressure gauge you can tee off the line leading to the DI resin from the RO membrane to get RO only water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 25, 2016 4:03:00 PM
I have BRS 4 stage value plus R0/ DI system 75 GPD . I would like to up grade to a 6 stage

  • Nice Unit By Mike on 1/27/2017

    The is a very nice unit. The installation was very easy.
  • Super easy to setup and use. By Jay on 1/20/2017

    I've been using this unit for a few weeks now, and I love it. Opened the box, had it connected and ready to go in about 15mins. And right out of the box, you can tell that is is a good quality product.
  • Perfect Water By eschulist on 1/13/2017

    I finally bought this during their Black Friday sale and had to jump on it at that price! The quality of the RODI system is amazing. I love that everything is well assembled and labeled with all the parts you need to hook it up for non-permanent installs. I however wanted this tapped right into my water main so it took a small trip to Home Depot to get a sharkbite T Valve with a 1/4" output. The install was super easy and I'm now making 0 tds water for my reef.
  • Best RO/DI out there By Tywillie on 12/20/2016

    I first purchased the stage 4 value package. After contacting my local water supply, I found out we had a large amount of Chloramines added. I then upgraded to the stage 6, which was so easy to do. Needless to say this system is really nice, and gives me the purest water to use for my reef. If you need an endless supply of perfect water, look no further.
  • Top Notch By AcanSkywalker on 12/14/2016

    With their built in flush kit, pressure gage, & Mur-lock fitting this excellently constructed, plug & play RODI system is truly top notch. I bought this during the Black Friday sale after reading the across the board 5 star reviews here and couldn't be happier.
  • Great rodi By Scott on 11/27/2016

    My first RODI system runs great, 75gpd is a bit slower then I was expecting so upgrading to the 150gpd. Only problem with mine is it leaks in two locations. I attempted rehosing and adding Teflon tape to the hose but leaks continue. Slow leaks so I'm not too concerned.
  • Excellent By Strat1960s on 11/21/2016

    I spent more time gathering the two or three tools I needed to make the connections and mount it to the wall than actually installing the RODI unit. I tapped into the cold water line for our washer and used the drain as well. I let it run to clear out the dust and I was good to go. Now I find myself asking what I can use the RODI water for. In the iron, in the radiator, in the fish tanks, and so on....
    Great product.
  • Great rodi By Erik on 11/4/2016

    The BRS unit is super high quality. 2 of the fittings came broken in the box but the staff at BRS overnighted me replacements plus extras. Super impressed with the quality and customer service. bought an extra carbon block and canister to upgrade this to a 5 stage and it works perfect to filter the high tds and chlormines from my cities water. Couldnt be happier.
  • Great product By John on 10/27/2016

    Product works,,, only problem I had was my water pressure was at 20psi,, so I bought a booster and it kicked it up to 90 psi which causes some leaks but not a problem,, I put a towel under it cause it's not like I use it all the time,, can't blame the product for my water pressure problems so,, as a ro/di,, it's a great system
  • Fantastic product just like all the reviews say! By Kyle on 10/24/2016

    I am brand new to the salt water hobby. Decided to start my tank off right by buying a RODI system and i followed all the great reviews on here. The system is perfect! Just like all the reviews say it was easy to hook up and get great quality water for my tank. Its much bigger in size and weight than i expected honestly but that's cool. The build quality is great and you can really tell this is an awesome product. The built in TDS meter is a great feature, i would highly recommend this system to anyone.
  • Great quality, easy to use By Alex on 10/23/2016

    Providing awesome water for my reefs. I've got chloramines in my local supply and it was easy to add a canister of carbon to fully eliminate the problem.
  • Great. By Corey on 9/25/2016

    What more can I say that hasn't been said. It's a great product that comes ready to use right out of the box. Within ten minutes of receiving the package I was already making water. The output of Rodi water is great despite the amount of waste water it makes. I just use it to fill my washer. I've already done two 50% water changes to get rid of the unconditioned water and I already see a difference. The water is crystal clear and the fish seem to love it. Now that I have this filter in my arsenal it might be time for me to add some coral and invertebrates.
