Thank You Manny
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.
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!
Our units do not have the built in ability to split. This can be achieved by adding a John guest 3 way ball valve.
Also does it come with a float valve?
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!
Will I have zero TDS if not using a DI resin? Is the DI resin used for drinking water purposes?
DI water is not recommended for drinking, as it can remove electrolytes and minerals from your body over prolonged periods of time. :-)
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!
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!
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!
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.
Thank you so much!
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!
All BRS RO/DI systems reflect the latest in reverse osmosis technology with updated filters, components and design updates.
Value systems:Designed to treat for chlorine, low volume chloramine usage and most well water*. Value systems are compact, portable, upgradeable and most importantly affordable.
Universal systems: Designed to be best in industry filtration for chloramines, chlorine and well water as well as cover the widest array of contaminates. This is the ideal solution if you simply want to know you have the best filtration available.
*If you are unsure if your city uses chlorine or chloramines you can use a LaMotte Insta-Test Free & Total Chlorine & Chloramine Test Strip or call your city's water treatment facility. If you don't want to bother with that, get the Universal system and know you are covered. Over 40% of municipal water supplies are now treated with hard to remove chloramines. This number is growing everyday so we recommend to the Unversal systems. If you select a Value system today, it is future proof and fully upgradeable. We offer Value to Universal Upgrade Kits which are super easy to install.
The Value Plus model is our most popular in this series; it includes a TDS meter and pressure gauge to monitor and ensure system performance as well as a flush kit to protect and prolong membrane performance.

- Filter wrench to tighten and loosen canisters
- Chrome faucet connector with adapter rings to make a non-permanent connection to kitchen sink
- Utility sink/garden hose adapter to make a non-permanent connection to garden hose or laundry tub
- Insta-Test Free & Total Chlorine Strips to test water for proper filter replacement
- Automatic shut-off valve
- Mur-lok Push Connect dual EPDM O-Ring fittings
- 10 Ft Each of 1/4" Blue, Red and Black Tubing
- All BRS Value Reverse Osmosis units exclusively feature NSF-certified BRS Universal Carbon Block Filters with 30% more carbon than standard blocks, NSF-certified Purtrex depth sediment filters and American made NSF-certified DOW reverse osmosis membranes
- Includes Total and Free Chlorine test strips to help identify if your city is using chlorine or chloramines
- Limited Lifetime Warranty which includes unlimited support via chat, phone or email with our WQA certified customer service staff
- Dimensions: 16" x 7" x 15.5"
- Minimum Water Pressure - 50 PSI
- Max Water Pressure - 90 PSI
- Recommended Water Temperature - 77°F
- Recommended Max TDS - <300ppm
Water pressure can be increased by adding a booster pump before your RO/DI system if a pressure increase is required. Low pressure will cause slow production of product water, with excess production of waste water. Pressure over 90 PSI may cause damage to the RO/DI units filters and components.

Will save you money and time By Lucas on 4/25/2017Lucas would recommend this product to a friendWorth every cent saves money in the long run. Super easy to use. Water is cleaner than ever.
easy as can be By Kerry on 4/21/2017Kerry would recommend this product to a friendI expected to be cutting hoses and buying adapters, staring in frustration at cryptic instructions, but the whole unit was set up completely with the adapters to connect to a hose or the kitchen sink included. Couldn't have been any easier.
Works great By mike730 on 4/20/2017mike730 would recommend this product to a friendI think its a great product just wish the flow was better to fill the good water instead of the bad but works great .
Great Product By Adam on 4/4/2017Adam would recommend this product to a friendSuper high quality and easy to use. Plug and play right out of the box. BRS is my go to for all things aquarium. The only negative I would say, and this goes for RODI units in general not just this particular unit is that they require at least 50 PSI to operate properly depending on the membrane. 60-80 PSI being optimal. If like me, you're on a well you probably don't have anywhere near that. I was in the 38-40PSI, which I didn't know until I hooked up the unit.. So, I ordered the booster pump, which is almost as expensive as the RODI unit itself. If you end up needing the booster pump then you might was well upgrade this with the 150GPH kit (which I did) that requires 60PSI to operate but produces more water faster with less waste water. I LOVE this RODI but knowing what I know now with my water pressure and needing the booster, I would have just bought the Value 150GPH system instead
The Best One By Oranin on 4/4/2017Oranin would recommend this product to a friendGet this one over the budget RODI.. This unit has the flush valve which will be crucial to reusing your RODI for years. Also the TDS meter is always helpful. I've never been happier in seeing a Zero on a measurement
Review as follows By akd200 on 4/2/2017akd200 would recommend this product to a friendI have been using this for several weeks. I got it because I wanted to start mixing RODI with my tap water. It drops my KH from 12 to 4 with a 1:3 ratio. I may go even more at monthly intervals. I do 20 gallon water changes on my 55 every day. I of corse use RODI for evaporation top off too. Surprisingly I stopped drinking tap water that I like also. I drink 18oz every 3 hours a day.
Well worth it! By Shawn on 3/26/2017Shawn would recommend this product to a friendSince I'm a newbie to the hobby I've done quite a bit of research on water quality. I have to say this product is GREAT! It was simple to set up and will produce enough water for my 75 gallon aquarium/31 gallon sump. I love the flushing option and the TDS meter. Fantastic job guys. Very well thought out.
Great well built unit. By Candi on 3/23/2017Candi would recommend this product to a friendThis is a very well built unit. Works great, easy to use. Quality.
Works great By Kelly on 3/22/2017Kelly would recommend this product to a friendLife saver
Great Setup for RODI By Michael on 3/22/2017Michael would recommend this product to a friendIt works right out of the box, instructions were easy to follow. Top notch filters installed.
Awesome System By Michael on 3/17/2017Michael would recommend this product to a friendI would say for the price, you are getting a great system. But truth be told, you are getting a great system regardless. Construction, packaging, directions, and ease of use are all 5 star! Save yourself the money in trips to your LFS and buy one of these for your home. You won't regret it.
Unit running strong after almost 2 years By Garrett on 3/10/2017Garrett would recommend this product to a friendI use this unit for my reef tank and to water my plants. I've probably gotten a few thousand gallons from this unit, and is still incredibly efficient. My water is extremely clean already, so I stopped using DI RESIN and still get down to 1 to 0ppm from the RO unit itself! That means all I have to spend to keep this unit running is a couple bucks to replace the sediment filter monthly! BRS is great, and the unit is built solid.
