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!
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. 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.

I LOVE BRS!!!! By JLaw on 8/20/2016JLaw wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is an amazing RO/DI!!!! Seriously BRS is the best!!!!
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!
Great company, great products. By Eddie on 7/28/2016Eddie wouldn't recommend this product to a friendJust started buying all the equipment needed to start my 75 gallon reef tank from BRS and I'm very happy, I can honestly say BRS has a life long customer. Ro/Di system, awesome.
It works By Jason on 7/13/2016Jason wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis unit works great but I only got 150 gallons of good water out of the resin . I thought this would last much longer . I have city water and it goes through a softner before the rodi . I have a steady 4ppm going in tds meter with a water pressure of steady 80-85 . As far as I know everything is running fine . Just surprised how quick the resin didn't last . But great solid built unit very high quality for price .
Extremely well built, super impressed By re76 on 6/10/2016re76 would recommend this product to a friendThe quality on this system is top notch. BRS even includes test strips so that you can check your water quality. They also include everything you will need to make the water connection.
Overall I am blown away by the value you get with this system. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Great Product for the price By Harold on 5/10/2016Harold would recommend this product to a friendOver the past six years I have gone out to purchase RO/DI. I found a good price but it was really getting old carrying buckets back and forth. I purchased the 4 Stage Value Plus. The next week I purchased the water saver. This is the best purchase I could have made. Not only I am doing everything in-house, the product comes with plenty of lines for the waters plus color coded. The fittings are very easy to put together and actually with the original unit it was plug and play. By the video on the installation of the water saver it went like clock work. This is a quality product and with the meter and gauge there is no guessing. It was packed super safe for shipping and you can see that care was put into it. I would advise the water saver due to the amount of waste water when filling. This is a couple of hundred dollar purchase but a must. You know the water quality and with the fittings given it can be hooked up on any faucet or water line. I do not know much about many other units but this is the one that give it all for the price. You also do not have to mount this on the wall if you cannot. It takes about an hour for five gallons with the water saver. The water is more than crystal clear. BRS also took the time to make great videos explaining the RO/DI systems along with how to hook up the water saver if you purchase it later.
Great System - Even Better Customer Service By OnalaskaBill on 4/30/2016OnalaskaBill would recommend this product to a friendSystem was shipped fast and arrived in perfect condition. Excellent packaging.
Easy to connect to the sink in the bathroom near my aquarium. I use a 32 gallon Brute container on wheels from Menard's. This system is exactly what I needed to save me the trips to the LFS for RODI water.
I am getting just over 2.5 gallons per hour, 62 GPD with 60 PSI on the built in pressure meter. I let it work for 8 hours at night and get 20 gallons for my water change.
Great product & Great Price By taotaomona77 on 4/22/2016taotaomona77 would recommend this product to a friendFirst time owner of a RODI filter, so this is based on what I seen, read, and have experienced with this unit. The unit comes with very easy to understand instructions, a variety of connections for your water source, and with the added features of a TDS meter, flush valve, and good length of hoses - you will not be disappointed! I researched other products and manufacturers, and this gave me everything I needed to start without having to purchase additional stuff. The 75 GPD rating is perfect for me and I love that I have the option of adding the water saver in the future to conserve my water. Great product and great service by BRS!
