We have divided our units between drinking water (NSF certified) and Reef use (Not Certified) We do not recommend using the universal 6 stage reefing systems as the components are not rated for human consumption. If you would like a dual use system the best option is the Drinking water system or for reef and drinking use we have the Drinking and Reef system. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
We cannot sell our RO/DI reefing only system for human consumption. The 6 stage drinking and reef model will come with an RO membrane which splits the RO water between the pressurized drinking water tank and the other line will head to the DI resin stage. RO water is safe for human consumption and recommended with out the need for additional elements to be added back in. The DI water can then be used for the aquarium. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Can you tell me how many gallons I can filter before I need to replace the filters for this unit. I have the
BRS 6 Stage Drinking & Reef RO/DI System - 75GPD SKU# 200413
Thank you for all your help!
Can I upgrade this unit to make it 150gpd?
While it can be upgraded when in use with the pressurized tank the system will encounter back pressure which negates the water saver qualities. Additionally the other fittings (pressure gauge, TDS) are not NSF certified and cannot be recommended for the upgrade with drinking water.
We certainly can help directly if you give us a call or email at 763-432-9691 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I have included 2 upgrade kits below which will help to complete your process and do come with fairly easy instructions. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The % stage drinking water kit is the one we recommend for human consumption (DI resin is only needed for reef tanks) This will function great with regular maintenance and monitoring the filters. This will remove fluoride from the water up to 99% Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Water pressure can be increased by adding a booster pump before your RO/DI system if a pressure increase is required. Low pressure will cause slow production of product water, with excess production of waste water. Pressure over 90 PSI may cause damage to the RO/DI units filters and components.
Great products! By Jeremy on 4/2/2017Jeremy would recommend this product to a friendThis is an awesome package deal. I would be extremely surprised if you need something to install this system that the kit doesn't come with. Like I said in the summary. Great product.
Great unit, great drinking water quality but check your incoming pressure By Dillon on 2/6/2017Dillon would recommend this product to a friendThis unit is put together very nicely. It was also, a fairly simple install for the average diy person. I wish that BRS would have a dropdown box to select faucet finish when ordering though. I ended up ordering another faucet from BRS to match my nickle kitchen faucet. My incoming water pressure is 55psi. I was fairly disappointed with the output and waste generated upon installation. I split the RO to my fridge cold water dispenser and the sink mounted faucet. No problem using the fridge door water to fill a glass of water, a little slow but no biggie. Using the faucet to fill my coffee-pot though, another story. After about 3 cups the water started to slow down considerably. On the DI side of things the unit filled a 5-gal jug in about two-hours. So......I ordered a booster pump, an auto-flush valve. and two float valves. You may be able to get away without the booster pump, but I say it's worth every penny. I can now fill a one-gallon jug at the faucet in no time at all, which for a drinking system is typical (for coffee makers, making iced-tea or what not). The waste was drastically reduced as well. You wont visually notice waste if plumbed into the drain which is typical. I live in SoCal, and the water cops would give you 15-to-life for the small amount of waste generated. I plumbed my waste line into a 55-gallon rain barrel. Prior to the booster pump I made just under 10-gallons of RO/DI and the 55-gallon barrel was overflowing! With the booster pump I can generate over 15-gallons of RO/DI before the rain barrel fills to capacity. I now have two 55-gallon rain barrels connected to my waste line. I use these to water plants, and mixing concrete/stucco while I'm remodeling. This works out perfect for the small amount of water I make (My aquarium is only 60-Gallons and I have a 25-gallon salt water/10-gallon fresh water storage. My weekly water change is 15-gallons and my ato burns 5-gallons. On top of all the great tasting drinking water I go through.). I have no complaints about this system. It works great and makes some great tasting water. Just do yourself a favor and order a booster pump, auto-flush valve, and some float valves for your storage tanks when you buy this thing and you wont be disappointed. Basically another great BRS product!
Great RO/DI System By TedrowP on 1/1/2017TedrowP would recommend this product to a friendI was looking for a system to supply RODI water for my aquariums but that would also supply excellent water at the kitchen sink for cooking and consumption. I also wanted to kill three birds with one stone -- to eliminate the constant need for purchasing inferior refrigerator filters and instant hot water tank filters (our 'hot water on demand' system at the kitchen sink uses the standard type of carbon filter seen in fridges and the like). This system fulfilled it all. It produces rather large volumes of RO water for human consumption on demand (it comes with a 3 gallon storage tank) and still has enough supply for our fridge (COLD RO water on demand, the instant hot system (190 degree water on demand) and I can produce 1 gallon of RO/DI water about every 5 minutes for my aquariums when I need to top them off or do water changes. All in all an excellent value. I did wind up adding the triple TDS monitor, a glycerin filled pressure gauge, and a membrane autoflush system. My water pressure is 70 PSI so I seem to have plenty of pressure to operate the entire system. Plus the 3 gallon tank is pressurized so it helps maintain excellent water flow to all areas. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality system to make really great water.
Great Product, Even Better Customer Service By Trent on 10/18/2016Trent would recommend this product to a friendI bought this RO/DI System right before it went on sale and they were more than willing to refund the difference! When I first received the system everything was packaged securely in three boxes. I didn't think the instructions were difficult to understand but I have watched lots of other ro/di setup videos so that may help. After initial setup, I found two small leaks. Customer service sent me new fittings right away. I still had one small leak so after talking with C.S. again they sent me enough extra parts to fix any future leaks I would have.
Now everything is working perfectly and I have had no other issues. The build quality is great and the Mur-lock fittings feel very secure. This was also the best value I could find anywhere for all of the features and extra parts. Thanks BRS!!!
Best RODI By Mel on 10/7/2016Mel would recommend this product to a friendThe best RODI for the price on the market, thanks BRS
Great product. By CJ on 6/24/2016CJ would recommend this product to a friendSystem was packaged securely. The plastic Tap in to the cold water leaked so I had to run out to the hardware store for a copper replacement. I called customer service for assistance since I had some questions while following the instructions. Customer Service was awesome and pointed me to a BRS installation video that was perfect. The system have been in use for a month and I'm very happy with it. I should've also ordered the tds meter and the back wash kit. I ran the RO line to my refrigerator and added a shutoff valve between the reservoir tank and the fridge. I have another shutoff between the RO and the tank. A shutoff valve is included for the tank. 0 TDS is beautiful and it's saving me $15-$20 per week.
Great product By John alex on 6/17/2016John alex would recommend this product to a friendFantastic product even better customer service. This same item went in sale two days after i bought it. They refunded the difference after i asked!! The instructions are a bit contradicting but after a little thought and common sense i figured it out. Still great product and great company!
Can't beat easy! By James on 4/14/2016James would recommend this product to a friendI have many years of pharmaceutical water system experience, so I had high expectations. This system is simple and totally effective. Everything is supplied, and the instructions are complete. Great base system on which to build or to use as-is. Thanks, BRS!
Flawless water, easy to install By John on 1/17/2016John would recommend this product to a friendThe unit shipped really fast, I had it in a couple of days. The unit is installed in my basement as is the pressure tank, the unit comes with 3 colors of 10' of tubing. I used all of it. From the ro unit and tank to the faucet is about 8'. The pressure coming from the sink faucet is GREAT and I only have 40 lbs of house pressure. The water tastes great. I did later upgrade to the value plus instead of the universal plus because I don't have the second DI canister. Buy it you'll be glad you did.
Awesome By Codey on 9/29/2015Codey would recommend this product to a friendProduct works amazing. Basically setup right out the box and comes with all the fittings you could need. Customer support is quick and easy and Fixed a small shipping hiccup in a 30 second phone call. Love BRS my new go to reef company
Awesome product & company!! By me2rowdy on 9/8/2015me2rowdy would recommend this product to a friendThe unit leaked after it was installed. BRS immediately sent a new unit and it doesn't leak at all. We love this thing! It is always ready with water and refills at a really fast rate. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have an RO drinking unit as well as a R)/DI unit for your reef tank. I even use the RO water on my plants and orchids.
Great RO/DI By Scott on 9/8/2015Scott would recommend this product to a friendThis system delivers exactly as promised and its easy to install(with a little plumbing know how).
