Ask a question
Is the system have some issue or the TDS monitor out of order?
If the display on the meter is showing 000 this will mean each line is working and the water coming out is pure. If the screen is blank not showing anything this could be a dead battery on the unit. Feel free to submit and email ticket with some photos if further support is needed.
You can certainly upgrade to the 150 kit which will produce more water than a standard membrane. Eventually a permeate pump or booster pump will be needed to keep performance up. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The ideal solution for CO2 is exactly as you have listed. With storing the RO water then running it through the DI resin via gravity. Often depending on the set up we do have to use a feed pump to push the water through the DI resin is the containers are mounted level. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
For a drinking and Reef system you will want our drinking and reef kit which comes with a separate pressurized tank to keep drinking water on hand and separate DI as it is DI resin is not recommended for human consumption. I have included a link below!
The output will vary depending on source water quality and pressure, If the water is better with higher PSI the ratio will be closer to 1:1. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This 4 stage system RO membrane and DI resin will remove phosphates from the source tap water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Any suggestions on how to warm the water up to 77 degrees prior to the RO unit? I need to hook this up to a hose from outside. Is there a way to connect it to a storage container of heated water, then pump it through the RO unit? What would you suggest to accomplish this? I am sure the water from outside is around 50 degrees, so i would probably waste a lot more water without it heated, correct?
While the manufacturer data and testing was conducted with water at 77F, this is not practical for most real-world home applications and we don't recommend attempting to modify your water to meet this particular parameter. It is never recommended to mix our hot and cold water lines feeding the RO membrane, and the pressures required to operate the unit would be very hard to achieve outside of residential home water line pressure. Not to worry though. With proper pressure you can expect to get very close or up to the stated rejection rate and production rate without the need to warm the water. The fact is that while colder water does slow production slightly and can change the waste ratio, it also aids it better rejection of impurities without the need for as high a ratio of product to waste. The manufacturer data not only uses 77F as the standard, but is also only trying to achieve a 1 to 6 product to waste ratio, which most people wouldn't want.
Hope this helps!
For life span of the RO membrane it is best to run our units after the water softener. The 150 GPD water saver is the best for reducing waste water currently available and will bring the waste closer to a 2:1 ratio. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
When the float valve is triggered or the blue product water line manually shut off the Auto Shut Off Valve will trigger and turn off the waste water line. The Auto Shut Off Valve can take a few minutes to trigger depending on the length of tubing in the system. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
All of our RO systems use high quality TFC membranes which can reject up to 98% of fluoride in the source water.
Our RO/DI units utilize 1/4" tubing, you can find the tubing here: https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/1-4-mur-lok-polyethylene-ro-tubing.html
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 Water Saver Plus is our most advanced model in the value series and includes a second RO membrane which doubles water production from 75 to 150 gallons per day, reduces waste water and effectively doubles pre filter life. All Plus models include a TDS meter and pressure gauge to monitor and ensure system performance as well as a flush kit to protect and prolong membrane performance.

Excellent unit! By Tylor on 3/27/2017Tylor would recommend this product to a friendThe product works just like it says. It's quick and reliable. I have not had any problems since I have had the problem or any leaks
Unbeatable By Jim H. on 3/19/2017Jim H. would recommend this product to a friendThis unit screams quality and longevity. I added one more stage to make mine a total of 5. If you require pristine water for your tank(s) look no further.
Great By Chuck on 1/24/2017Chuck would recommend this product to a friendI bought this unit. Hooked it up and was only getting around 40 psi. After talking with customer service they recommended the pump for it. Hooked the pump up to the unit and had to turn the pressure down to 90 psi. Working great.
Brand new. I had to fix By Christopher on 1/3/2017Christopher would recommend this product to a friendI bought this system and hooked it up. I had a leak that most of the reviews have spoken about. I contacted customer service immediately. They were quick to respond however. They sent me the parts to fix. So think about this. You buy a product and have to fix it when it's brand new. Doesn't make much sense to me. Also, while fixing I found I had to take apart almost the entire system to fix the leaking part. If your not handy and don't want to buy a project, then I don't advise this system. If you don't mind extra work for your hard earned cash, then have at it. I did my research and came across the other reviews with the same issue. I figured those problems would have been so unlikel. What are the odds? Well I guess quite good. Be prepared to fix your brand new system if you purchase this one.
Good value By Chris on 12/6/2016Chris would recommend this product to a friendI recently replaced an aging RO/DI system with this unit and couldn't be happier.
I did have a leak when I first hooked the unit up...turned out one of the membrane canisters had a seal that was out of place. Once corrected everything has worked perfectly for the last 6+ months now.
I am on a private well...so ultimately I ended-up getting the booster pump for this...wish I would have done that sooner...the extra pressure really takes performance to whole new level!
BRS 4 STAGE VALUE WATER SAVER PLUS RO/DI SYSTEM - 150GPD By mike on 12/6/2016mike would recommend this product to a friendthis company is the best great unit
Water saver By Brian on 11/18/2016Brian would recommend this product to a friendThis was an upgrade, from a 50gpd unit. So to step up to 150gpd is a big deal.
The dual RO membrane really does reduce your rejection water. My 50 GPD unit would discharge 4-5 gallons of rejection for every 1 gallon of good water.
With this unit I get 1- 1.5 gallons of discharge per 1 gallons of good water.
Aside from this units gallons per day rating and it water saving capability, this is a very well made unit, and I felt good about buying it from BRS seems like they would stand behind it and seems like they have a better selection of higher quality filter refills than some of the other retailers out there. Yes I did some shopping around for this.
Great unit By Chris on 11/4/2016Chris would recommend this product to a friendI've had this system for a little over a year now and it has preformed great. I couldn't even tell you how many thousands of gallons of ro water it produced for me. It's a pretty simple set up and the filters are so easy to change and it literally takes 30 seconds. Only problem I had since day 1 was a small trickle leak from one of the factory connections. It not really a huge issue and I usually just set the unit on a towel and it's fine but it still an issue... overall I think it's a fantastic unit and would definitely recommend to anyone in the market for a rodi system that used quality parts and easy to change filters
Saves so much water with time By Mr. Face on 10/25/2016Mr. Face would recommend this product to a friendProduct speaks for itself first let me just say my tote fills within a couple hours and it's a 40 gallon. My last coral life ro unit tool over 24 hours with a nice smile happy face from the water department thanking me for the payment. Now after I got this water saver unit all I get in the mail from the water department is just only bill, no more smiley face so yes I would highly recommend this product to all. BTW my tank is 80 gal. 18 mag 160 diablo skimmer 2 reactor carbon and gfo uv unit mangrooves and a 30 breeder for sump.
Excellent By John on 10/16/2016John would recommend this product to a friendI cannot recall the last time receiving any product mounted to a metal frame with such a solid and quality feel. It is easy to make something look good, but IMO it is the tactile quality that cannot be cheated. Awesome.
Just buy it By Anthony on 10/3/2016Anthony would recommend this product to a friendI started with the 75gpd model, and quickly upgraded to this. The unit is fantastic. RO/DI water is now easy, as is changing filters and maintenance on the unit. Great quality for reasonable price.
Huge money saver! By Carlos Z on 9/17/2016Carlos Z would recommend this product to a friendI had a few questions so I called the help line. The rep was a HUGE help giving me advice on how to set up the system. He gave me the confidence to buy it. Btw this is my first saltwater FOWLR tank ever.
So I order the system and a adjustable float valve. Free shipping and arrived in a few days. Awesome. The packaging was very secure and padded.
The system is 99% assembled! Super easy and comes with at least 10' of water line. Plenty for most applications. All fitting were included and I had it running in less than an hour.
I did have a little rust appear below the pressure gauge where some water had dried and left a rust ring. I called customer service and we discussed it. We agreed to keep an eye on it. With a two year warranty I'm not worried. Great service, great product.
