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.

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
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
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
Hello
Will I have zero TDS if not using a DI resin? Is the DI resin used for drinking water purposes?

Thanks.
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!
http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/aquatec-permeate-pump-clip.html
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!
Sumant
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
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 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!

  • 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.
  • Top notch By Alex on 9/20/2016

    Excellent construction, easy to use.
  • Thank you By Eric on 9/11/2016

    First of all I would like to say that this is a very well built product. The parts are tight, the quality is superb, and the fittings, connections, instructions, work! I try to buy things and it's always one more step or one more thing. I try to order things and it's always one more week or somethings wrong and it needs something else. All that said I don't know how on a consistent bases, over and over this company never fails. You guys are soooo old fashioned with your customer service and the way you put us first it is a miracle your still open! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Always works better. Always great quality. Always here when you say it's going to be here. And I always learn something new from you guys.
  • SUPER AWESOME PRODUCT!! By mindi on 8/30/2016

    SUPER AWESOME PRODUCT!!
  • I LOVE BRS!!!! By JLaw on 8/20/2016

    This is an amazing RO/DI!!!! Seriously BRS is the best!!!!

  • Excellent quality, very pleased, also a pressure tip By Robert on 8/2/2016

    I am very pleased with the quality of all of the components. Extremely easy to hook up and had no leaks. I bought the John Guest Angle stop that fits inline between the water supply and your faucet. It was also very easy to install and works great. I don't have to worry about the faucet adapters with this. It just takes a quick turn to allow water to the RO/DI system. I am glad I bought that option. I was a little confused at first because my incoming water showed a TDS of only 4. I then read a review that this was because that water had already passed by some of the media. It would be nice to have that in the documentation. It made me question the meter until I read that. I do have one tip regarding pressure but you must use caution. First, you need to buy a pressure gauge at Lowes / HD. It will screw onto a garden hose connection. Make sure that connection is past your water regulator valve. The water regulator valve does just what it sounds like and makes sure you do not get too much pressure from the water supply to the house. Mine was easy to get too in the basement. Originally, my pressure was only about 38 on the RO/DI meter. I checked my pressure gauge for the house and noticed it was only about 50. From everything I researched the recommendation is to go no higher than 80 in your house. I adjusted my pressure regulator (on mine you tighten to get more pressure) until my pressure went up to 60 which is still well below the recommended 80 and the meter on the RO/Di went to 50. Again, you must use a gauge and not guess at this. You can cause things like your ice maker in your freezer to start leaking and worse things if you crank the pressure up too much. It worked great for me. The extra pressure in the house is actually nice as well. This may not be the pressure problem for everyone but maybe it will help some. BTW, I really love the free shipping on everything at BRS!
