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!
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!
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!
Thank for all Infomation I've learned from watching your channel
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!
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!
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!
Currently running: sediment filter, activated carbon, chloramines carbon block, 2x serial RO, single DI stage.
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!
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!
If you PSI rating is below 50 a booster pump would be recommended.
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.
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!
This unit will come with all filters included and ready to run! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
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!
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!
Also, generally speaking, how many gallons is a single canister of DI resin good for and what assumed TDS input is that based on?
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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 12/4/2016Brian would recommend this product to a friendI'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 11/24/2016Gerald would recommend this product to a friendI'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 10/17/2016I love fish sticks would recommend this product to a friendShould 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 10/11/2016Scott would recommend this product to a friendThis 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 10/2/2016Joseph would recommend this product to a friendExcellent 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 9/27/2016Ivan S. would recommend this product to a friendVery 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 9/26/2016Paul would recommend this product to a friendThis unit is so well done. Highly recommended.
Best RODI System On The Market By Mark on 8/8/2016Mark wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSet 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 7/25/2016mik41far wouldn't recommend this product to a friendVery 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 6/19/2016Ed would recommend this product to a friendOutstanding 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 6/18/2016chris would recommend this product to a friendNOT 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 6/13/2016Dan would recommend this product to a friendWorks 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.
