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.
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.

Great rodi By Scott on 11/27/2016Scott would recommend this product to a friendMy 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 11/21/2016Strat1960s would recommend this product to a friendI 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 rodi By Erik on 11/4/2016Erik would recommend this product to a friendThe 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 10/27/2016John would recommend this product to a friendProduct 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 10/24/2016Kyle would recommend this product to a friendI 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 10/23/2016Alex would recommend this product to a friendProviding 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 9/25/2016Corey would recommend this product to a friendWhat 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 9/20/2016Alex would recommend this product to a friendExcellent construction, easy to use.
Thank you By Eric on 9/11/2016Eric would recommend this product to a friendFirst 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.

Excellent quality, very pleased, also a pressure tip By Robert on 8/2/2016Robert wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI 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!
