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!
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: http://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.

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.
Excellent Unit By nnorton11 on 7/13/2016nnorton11 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIm very impressed with this system. It came out of the box ready to go. It does a great job. Im very pleased with my purchase i would definitely recommend this unit.
works great!! By Marshall on 7/10/2016Marshall would recommend this product to a friendFilters work beautifully, BRS gives you everything you might need for possible connections. Was slightly worried about having enough pressure in Los Angeles but was happily surprised to find 60 PSI out of the kitchen sink. Making water like crazy, couldn't be happier with it.
Piece of Cake By Reggie on 6/26/2016Reggie would recommend this product to a friendOnce I located the place to set up it was very simple. Piece of cake. I am pleased that everything that i need in a RO DI unit came with this. No need to add anything except a float valve. I'm good!
Very happy By Beans on 6/26/2016Beans would recommend this product to a friendMy first RO unit. Easy set up, works great. Very pleased with the unit.
WOW!!!! Why did I wait so long By chuck on 6/13/2016chuck would recommend this product to a friendNot really sure why I waited so long to purchase this RO/DI unit...It was very easy to set up on my bathroom sink and the unit is sturdy enough to just sit on the floor without being mounted. It makes pure water and now I know that any makeup or water for my ATO is top quality water. I have a 60 gal cube with a med blue tang/ yellow tang four clown fish a watchman goby a coral beauty angel fish that I feed 3-4 times a day and my NO3 stays around 0.01 PO4 0.01 I do perform a 5 gal water change every week with reef crystals...Very happy and so is my tank.
Love my BRS RO/DI System By A.J. on 5/18/2016A.J. would recommend this product to a friendIt is so much more convenient using this system then running to my LFS to get RO/DI water. Saves me a ton of time and money, considering every time I went to my LFS for water I would buy something, even if I didn’t really need it. If you factor that into your return on investment equation the system will pay for itself way quicker than you think. I’ve been running the system for about 6 months, producing about 10 gallons a week. So I have produced about 250 gallon. The DI resin is still all black and is holding strong. TDS levels are ZERO. If you’re like me and you over analyze what equipment you are buying, you will not be disappointed. Make the jump and buy this system, you won’t regret it.
Last point – my pressure is only 50, so I do need to get a booster pump to prolong the life of my filters and resin, but even without a buster pump I still produce 5 gallons of water in about 48 min.
Freshwater fish love it too! By Rick on 5/16/2016Rick would recommend this product to a friendFinally got it set up and super happy with the quality of water produced. Fish are responding in a most positive way. Thanks so much!
AWESOME highly recommend By Kman on 4/11/2016Kman would recommend this product to a friendI bought this unit as a first RO/DI unit. I wasn't experienced with RO/DI or making my own water. I bought this back on 8/4/15. BulkReef was very helpful in answering all the question I had about the product. The unit came shipped and package extremely well. It was very simple to setup. BRS supply's you with everything you need to set it up. After letting the unit break in a little I was up and running making my own saltwater. I have not looked back since. Im very happy with the product and maintenance is extremely easy. Having the TDS meter is on the unit is very handy. I did not need a booster pump as my pressure stays at 60-61. I have some friends who use a 75GPD and it takes them longer to fill there cans up. This unit is well worth the money!!!!!!!
Great Value High Quality By Cave Man on 3/7/2016Cave Man would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great unit that produces near prefect H2O. I wish it was offered with the extra DI container. You will want it. As well consider an extra DI unit so you don't have to waste the last 10% of the DI resin. Also it tends to use the Resin a little faster then I expected. I had to replace it at 200 gallons. This will be improved by doing long runs of RODI instead of many short bursts.
Awsome! By Victor on 3/3/2016Victor would recommend this product to a friendjust did a 20 gallon nuvo kit with BRS and added this to my order. might be a little overkill for a 20 gallon tank but the price difference from the 75 gpd to this one is something you cant pass up. my location im able to get a pressure reading of 40, which is a little below what is recommended but im sure ill be alright. looking at filling up a 5 gallon bucket in about an hour. perfect for my water changes!
Great buy and Value By Zach on 2/19/2016Zach would recommend this product to a friendI love this unit I have had it about 4 months now. It is much better built than the one it replaced in my setup. I have a 150G reef tank and in about 6 hours I fill up a 35gallon trash can with water for changes. The water saver plus is definitely the one to get in southern California. This unit produces very little waste water (~ 2:1) compared to the typical efficiency of 4:1.
