If you have a 5 stage plus unit then this kit has everything you would need to upgrade the filters to chloramines filters :-)
Its only recommended to drink RO only water (water that hasn't passed through the DI stage). On its own the unit wouldn't work very well but with the additional add on drinking water kit it would be a suitable choice. The kit comes with the pieces needed to divert water before the DI stage as well as the pressurized storage tank (otherwise it will take 10 minutes to fill a glass of water).
Chloramines are different than Chlorine and are used in 10% of U.S. water supplies. Standard RO filters will not remove chloramines from the water. If you are unsure if your city uses chloramines, call your water treatment center or city hall and ask. They should also be able to provide you with a water quality report as well.

Upgrading Regular RO/DI to Include Chloramides By Ryan on 11/12/2014Ryan would recommend this product to a friendWhen the BRS Email Newsletter informed us to check our cities water supply to determine if they were using Chloramides or not & that our regular 5-Stage Plus RO/DI system might not be removing all them we were very concerned. We contacted our city & learned that they, in fact, were using Chloramides we immediately went to our go-to website, BRS, to figure out what we needed to purchase. While we fluctuated between purchasing a new system & upgrading our existing, BRS & the information contained therein, allowed us to decide to upgrade right now instead of purchasing an entirely new system. The upgrade kit contained everything we needed for a great price point, which was greatly appreciated!! We intend to purchase an additional (with chloramide removal) for our ATO in the near future!
Easy Chloramines Removal Upgrade By Mark on 8/17/2014Mark would recommend this product to a friendI initially purchased the standard chlorine kit and soon found out that Virginia uses Chloramines, when a friend had to completely start his system over. I watched the youtube videos before purchasing this upgrade kit. I must say that this upgrade kit was very straight forward and simple to install. I would definitely recommend this kit if you have Chloramines in your local water.
Works Like A Charm! By Eric on 6/8/2014Eric would recommend this product to a friendI'd been encountering issues where my RO/DI water, once mixed with salt would begin to show higher than zero levels of ammonia after being stored for more than a few days. Assuming it was just a fluke, I tossed it and started over, only to see ammonia develop again. As my next step I purchased total and free chlorine test kits, which showed barely detectable levels of chlorine in my city water. After some reading, I realized the city must be adding chloramines to the water and this was breaking down in my storage tank and causing ammonia to develop.
I ran out and picked up a Chloramines Upgrade Kit, and made a fresh batch of water, mixed it and waited. No ammonia!
The one thing I would like to know, however, is how long the activated carbon is good for before I need to replace it.

Chloramine removal By Bob on 10/8/2013Bob would recommend this product to a friendBased on your video on chloramines, I discovered that our water treatment facility was now using chloramine so I added a 5th stage to my RO/DI system. Noticing improved tank conditions already.

Replace all the filters and get the cholramines out! By Michael on 7/19/2013Michael would recommend this product to a friendI recently bought a 2nd hand BRS 5 stage plus unit from a reefer exiting the hobby on the other side of town. His filters were a bit old and putting out about 2 TDS. I know my district uses cholramines, so I knew I needed to upgrade the unit. Installation was a snap and it replaced all cartridges except for the RO membrane.
Emailed BRS with a few questions and they replied very fast! Thanks BRS!
Great kit. Worried me at first I had left over filter media, but BRS explained it's just extra, better to have a bit more than not enough.
Input: 148 TDS, Output: 0 TDS now.
