Product Questions

Can I drink the water that this RO/DI system makes ?
Question by: Tony Bily on May 19, 2016 12:55:00 PM
Great question!
DI water is not recommended for human consumption. Instead we do have our drinking water systems which use RO water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 19, 2016 3:14:00 PM
Hi Connor- with the water saver system how many gallons of water does it take to produce one gallon of purified water?
Question by: Michele on May 7, 2016 12:10:00 PM
Great question! At 65 PSI the water saver systems will have roughly a 2:1 waste water to product water ratio, meaning for every gallon of product water produced, you will have roughly 2 gallons of waste.
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 10, 2016 3:27:00 PM
How much waste water will be produced for each gallon of ro/Di produced? Is the waste water good for use for anything else? Watering plants, drinking, etc...
Question by: Phong on May 8, 2016 1:23:00 AM
Great question!
There is no exact answer however typically this is a 2 part waste to 1 part product water. waste water can be used to water the lawn or plants however is not recommended for consumption. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 10, 2016 5:24:00 PM
Hi Connor - how many gallons (approximately) of water can I get with the system before replacing filters? How do I know that it is time to change filters? Thx in advance!
Question by: Reza S on Mar 15, 2016 10:40:00 PM
Great question!
This will vary quite a bit depending on the quality of the water, as well as time between producing water. On average the membrane will last several thousand gallons. The membrane should have a rejection rate of 99% which means if the numbers (after flushing) are above 1-3% of your source water it is a good idea to change (typically between 1-10 TDS) The Sediment filter, Carbon Block and DI resin will need to be changed much more often typically 6 months to 1 year. The DI resin can be changed when the color is yellow or the TDS coming out is above 0. The Carbon Block and Sediment filter will be difficult to tell however if the pressure drops it will need to be changed as well as the sediment filter will change colors when it removes quite a bit of larger particles. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 16, 2016 11:02:00 AM
Will it do harm if I don't use the system close to its maximum output ? I would like to buy the 6 stage 150 but my water demand would not require that much now. I don't want to buy a smaller system as a plan on upsizing my tanks towards the end of the year. Id be making about 50 gals a week
Thank for all Infomation I've learned from watching your channel
Question by: Joe on Mar 16, 2016 5:20:00 PM
Great question!
This will not cuase any harm! As long as the system is run weekly with water flowing through it will work great! You do not want to store the unit for extended periods as the filters may deplete when dried. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 16, 2016 6:40:00 PM
i bought this unit a bout 2 years ago and replaced the membranes once since ive had it and just put the same 75 gpd membranes in that it came with. my question is can i replace the 75 gpd membranes with the 100 or the 150 gpd membranes in the same housings or will it only accept the 75s
Question by: Garrett C Crance on Nov 6, 2016 10:38:00 AM
Great question! You could replace them with the 100/150 GPD membranes, however doing so will drastically reduce the rejection rate from the membranes, causing much higher TDS coming out of the membranes. This will lead to very fast DI Resin consumption rates and poorer water quality. You would also need to change the flow restrictor in order to change those. :-)

Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 8, 2016 4:30:00 PM
So are those two 75gpd membranes for this unit=150gph? Also just make sure, 150gph flow restrictor?
Question by: Patrick Cezar on Jan 14, 2016 3:11:00 AM
Great question!
The 150 GPD unitl will have two 75 GPD membranes. The flow restrictor will be the same Flow 550 as with the standard 75 GPD membrane as the water will flow through both membranes in series causing the restriction to be the same amount. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 14, 2016 12:13:00 PM
does this RO/DI system come with a flush kit ?
Question by: Tony Bily on Jun 15, 2016 3:39:00 PM
Great question!
This Unit will include the membrane flush valve on the waste water line. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jun 15, 2016 3:53:00 PM
Will this work with 400 ppm city tap water ? will it zero out ?
Question by: Diogo on Nov 24, 2016 12:59:00 PM
Great question! The best filtration that you can have from a single RO membrane is 98% rejection rate, in which case, with 400ppm you can expect TDS reduction to around 8-12 TDS. It is not recommended to use the 150GPD upgrades for high TDS product water over 250ppm, due to the reduced rejection that will come from feeding the second membrane from the first membrane's waste water. Ryan talks about this in the video link below! :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 25, 2016 7:46:00 AM
Does this ro di unit have the automatic flush system on it
Question by: John putman on Nov 24, 2016 3:25:00 PM
Great quesiton! Our units do not include an automatic flushing system, but this unit does include a flush valve that you manually have to manipulate. In order to incorporate an auto flushing system, you would need the products listed in the links below. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 25, 2016 7:42:00 AM
Hi, I have an older 5-stage chloramines plus system I've been using for about 5-yrs. Recently upgraded to the Aquatech booster pump and 150gpd upgrade kit (amazing upgrade I must add, worth every penny). I've noticed all the newer systems don't have the carbon 2nd stage that is in my older system. Should I change setup on my next filter recharge?

Currently running: sediment filter, activated carbon, chloramines carbon block, 2x serial RO, single DI stage.
Question by: Angelo on Mar 30, 2016 8:57:00 PM
Great question!
Ideally the best filter change will be the 5 stage universal replacement kit. This will have a single sediment, two 1 micron carbon blocks (Ideal for chloramine removal) and a DI resin bag. I have included the link below. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 4, 2016 10:40:00 AM
Can I put two 150gpd membranes on this unit? Will I need more psi pressure going in? Or what about the flow restrictor? Will I need to get a 300gpd restrictor? Or will the 150gpd be okay? Do u carry a 300gpd restrictor?
Question by: Patrick Cezar on Jan 14, 2016 2:18:00 PM
Great question!
You can place two 150 GPD membrane in the housings, you will want increased pressure a minimum of around 65-70 PSI. In addition to the membrane you will need to replace the flow restrictor from one rated for the 75 GPD (550mL) to a larger 150 (800mL) Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 14, 2016 6:28:00 PM
Does this unit require a booster pump?
Question by: chris kooi on Apr 27, 2016 4:51:00 PM
It depends on your homes water pressure.
If you PSI rating is below 50 a booster pump would be recommended.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 27, 2016 5:25:00 PM
What water pressure do I need to use this system and does it include a pressure canister and pump? Thank you
Question by: JoEllen on Aug 25, 2015 2:13:00 AM
Great question!
This system will require 50psi to run efficiently, the unit will ship with everything that is pictured on the website. This unfortunately does not include a pressurized canister or a booster pump, these can however be purchased separately if needed. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Aug 25, 2015 11:11:00 AM
What system do would be best if im using well water?
Question by: Peter on Nov 8, 2016 9:17:00 AM
Great question! A 6 stage system should be a proper fit for a well water system, however most well water comes with a high sediment content. In that case, I would also recommend an additional sediment filter stage. In order to incorporate that, I would purchase the additional canister listed below as well as another sediment filter. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 8, 2016 6:30:00 PM
Hello. Will it be possible to make this unit for both purposes - drinking and reef? I mean if I install a splitting valve - can I switch between reef and drinking hose.
Question by: Emi on Nov 8, 2016 9:45:00 AM
Great question! You can easily add a 3-way ball valve between the RO membrane and the DI Resin canisters. That would allow for you to divert the RO only water to a pressurized tank, in order to utilize it for drinking purposes. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 8, 2016 6:32:00 PM
Is the 150 GPD water saver filter already attached to the system or is there some assembly required? Thanks.
Question by: Michael Nelson on May 15, 2015 9:31:00 AM
Great question, our water saver units are shipped with both RO membranes already installed. The DI canisters will be shipped separate however installation is as easy as plugging in the product water lines. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 15, 2015 1:10:00 PM
Our house has a well with hard water, so we have a water softener. Is it recommended or not recommended to feed the RO/DI with the softened water?
Question by: Christal on Mar 21, 2016 4:44:00 PM
Great question!
it is recommended to use soft water to run into the RO system. This will help to preserve the life of the membrane longer. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 22, 2016 11:17:00 AM
Does this come with everything to fire the system up or do we need to buy the resin and blocks etc?
Question by: Chris Bruce on May 2, 2016 10:48:00 AM
Great question!
This unit will come with all filters included and ready to run! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 3, 2016 6:45:00 PM
I have water pressure from a dug well that runs between 20 and 40 psi. What booster pump would you recommend to use? Or do you have different ideas that might work better? I am trying to produce water for a fresh water fish only tank. I am trying to learn what works and what is needed to make quality water, and how eficiently operate the systems. thanks for the help, Rick
Question by: Rick on Feb 1, 2016 4:25:00 PM
Great question!
For a standard RO system you will want the booster pump kit. This works with 1/4" tubing standard on most RO units. This will increase your pressure to an optimal range which works for your system. I have included a link below!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 19, 2016 9:43:00 AM
Hi... is the 150gpd upgrade kit just an additional/second 75gpd Dow Filmtec membrane? The quick review doesn't mention that.
Question by: Steve on Sep 21, 2015 4:57:00 AM
Great question!
The 150GPD upgrade kit is a second 75 GPD membrane to add to your existing unit. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Sep 21, 2015 4:40:00 PM
From what I can find on your website, the BRS Universal carbon blocks have a capacity of 3,500 gallons for water with 3ppm chloramines. What I am trying to determine is that since this filter has two of the Universal carbon blocks, is it then rated for 7,000 gallons of water (input, not production).

Also, generally speaking, how many gallons is a single canister of DI resin good for and what assumed TDS input is that based on?
Question by: Christopher Sanchez on May 16, 2016 9:42:00 PM
Great question! Unfortunately due to vastly varying water quality, filter longevity is directly dependent on your local water quality. A rough average is 6-8 months for carbon block filters.
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 24, 2016 11:26:00 AM
Why my ro/di never reeds cero
Question by: Ginno on May 3, 2016 10:55:00 PM
Hey there,
There are many reasons for non 0 readings. Ensure that the membrane and filters are new and not depleted. Additionally proper flushing of the membrane will need to occur before and after each use. For troubleshooting please contact our customer support team via email or phones!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 4, 2016 2:03:00 PM
I'm looking for a replacement filter set for this unit, but i'm a little confused. I see the direct replacement set that has the same filters but I also see the 6 stage Chloramine filter set. I have high chloramines in my unfiltered water so I'm not sure which filter set is appropriate?
Question by: Daniel Liguori on Jan 22, 2016 1:56:00 PM
Hey there,
we have a few models available. The best for Chloramines is the 6 stage universal replacement in the link below. The other models are typically older versions and will not be quite as effective at removing chloramines. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 28, 2016 2:10:00 PM
Universal Water Saver RO/DI 150 GPD you do not mention reservoir and capacity l would be pleased to know thank you.
Question by: Barry Tracey on Jan 24, 2016 9:55:00 AM
Hey there,
Our Reefing RODI systems do not include a reservoir as they can be installed on many variety of DIY storage containers for mixing RO and Saltwater. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 3, 2016 11:35:00 AM
this may be a dumb question but does the 6 stage universal water saver plus come with the filters needed
Question by: john putman on Apr 8, 2016 1:04:00 PM
Great question!
The unit will come with all filters pre-installed as well as the installation components. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 8, 2016 3:44:00 PM
Is it safe to drink the RO water Produced by the 6 stage universal water saver plus? ( I would like to hook up the drinking kit/tank in between the RO filters and the DI filters.)
Question by: Kevin Eichelberger on Jan 24, 2016 8:32:00 PM
Great question,
Unfortunately the RO/DI systems we have with TDS meter, Pressure gauge and membrane flush valve are not NSF certified. We cannot recommend using not NSF certified components with drinking water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 3, 2016 12:00:00 PM

Full Details

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.

  • Not just for reefers! By Brian on 12/4/2016

    I'm probably the odd man out here not being a reef keeper. I keep dwarf freshwater shrimp and was looking for a system to improve the very hard water in my area. I went with the water saver plus 150, which was more than I was looking for because of great Black Friday pricing. After installing the unit and using it for a few days now, I can say it is worth every penny of its full price, and then some. It was very easy to get up and running with all the fittings needed included. I am getting nearly a 1 to 1 ratio of waste to product water, and quickly. I can also say after using the product water to make tea, my tea has never tasted better. Thank you BRS!
  • High Quality System!!! By Gerald on 11/24/2016

    I'm really pleased with the 6 stage system. I bought the high-end unit with water saver feature. This unit is a breeze to set up, and I LOVE the fact that pretty much any imaginable connector has been included. I'll tell you what I love more - not having to drive around to get RO water from a kiosk. I put my system near a bathtub we don't use. I put a 5 gallon bucket for the RO water, and a couple of buckets to save the "waste" water (the water that has all the compounds and junk that was rejected by the RO membrane). I use that water to flush the john. SO NO wasted water. The BRS unit is built really, really well. I can't be happier with my purchase.

    Also, to me it was really worth buying the high end system. The extra features are a lot less money than if you decide you want them later.
  • excellent By I love fish sticks on 10/17/2016

    Should have a sixth star. What an incredible setup. Easily Installed, with all the correct fittings included. I love this system. BRS made it SO easy to make perfect water from the devils pee that comes out of my well. Make sure you watch all of BRS TV youtube videos. I am a new reefer and have learned so much from Ryan and RT.
  • Nice unit! By Scott on 10/11/2016

    This is a great on click RO/DI unit. Comes with multiple connections to your homes water source, plenty of line for routing, nice color instructions to top it all off. I'm a newbie to saltwater tanks and this was great to have for starting up instead of buying over 120 gallons of RO or saltwater from a local fish store.
  • Best RODI on the market By Joseph on 10/2/2016

    Excellent product, easy to set up and it comes with many options for connections. BRS makes the best RO/DI system ever !
  • Definitely Worth It! Great Product By Ivan S. on 9/27/2016

    Very happy with the product. It comes with every bell and whistle. Set up was extremely easy. Now I don't have to go to the LFS every time I need to do a water change and the convenience of hsving this system, which has performed flawlessly is worth every penny.
  • Amazing By Paul on 9/26/2016

    This unit is so well done. Highly recommended.
  • Best RODI System On The Market By Mark on 8/8/2016

    Set up my RODI system in my backyard using a drinkable garden hose. Even with only 40 psi it works great and I get up to 150gl per day. Have the waste line feeding our banana tree. Love the pressure gauge and 3 way TDI meter that's included. Highly Recommended!
  • BRS 6 Stage Universal Water Saver Plus RO/DI System 150GPD By mik41far on 7/25/2016

    Very happy with this unit. I hooked it up and had a leak from one of the canisters on top, the o-ring was destroyed upon receiving the unit. I called customer service and spoke with Meredith who has been extremely helpful both with problems and giving advice on choosing the right RO/DI unit for our specific needs. She replaced the part and I received it the next day. Couldn't be more pleased with the customer service and the company itself. Give them a try!
  • Outstanding! By Ed on 6/19/2016

    Outstanding value and performance. Don't think about it just spend the money, your water is the foundation for everything else you do. You will not be disappointed in this.
  • After one week, first carbon block is still leaking! By chris on 6/18/2016

    NOT GOOD. I shall call BRS as to figure out how to rectify the problem. Yes I took the canister off and retightened it. Water pressure is at 65 psi. However I will admit i love this rodi unit. Got it for $296 on a sale(wait for brs sale) and it produces a ton of water fast. Disappointed with the ongoing small leak from the first carbon block(a may purchase a gasket and try that) The TDS meter in addition to the flush valve is great.150 GPD is the way to go. #CONSERVATION

    Deduction of 5 stars to 4 stars is solely to the leak. Otherwise I envision a absolutely perfect unit.
  • Only One Issue By Dan on 6/13/2016

    Works great. I have 65 psi on my mainline and needed to get a booster pump to get this system up to 65 psi. They should make that clear that this system is likely not going to be complete without spending another $100+ on a booster pump pending you have an unusually high psi out of your lines.

    Also the amount of waste to good water is 2:1 on this system. Get an extra 55 gallon garbage can (brute plastic) and reuse the water elsewhere.
