- BRS Add-On Faucet Kit
Great excuse for the wife! By Mark on 2/11/14Mark would recommend this product to a friendGot this add-on kit to justify to my wifey to get the RO/DI system! Easy to hook up, and have not had to change the filters for 2 years now. Make sure you have space for the tank (I have it under the kitchen sink). The 5 gallon tank doesn't actually hold 5 gallons, more like 3 at most, but may be partially related to my water pressure which is about 45 psi.
Great Add-on By Steve on 1/26/14Steve would recommend this product to a friendI had to justify the purchase of an RO/DI system with my spouse - this add-on did the trick!
Overall a very good value and the instructions made the installation fairly easy.
One of the other reviewers knock it for an 'air gap faucet' - my purchase (1/10/14) came with a different kind of faucet that is silent and seems to work better. I think BRS has updated this.
It has taken a while for a plastic taste to get out of the water, I'm not sure if that is due to the tubing or pressurized tank. The way this connects to the BRS RO/DI system is impressive - you can tell BRS tried to make this installation as intuitive as possible.
Would buy again! Thanks BRS!
a great kit, easy to install but use tap to avoid leak for the tank. By chen yang on 3/30/13chen yang would recommend this product to a friendagain i love what brs is doing. they provide easy instruction and solution for reefers. other online retailers sell these things seperately and with no instructions this is a good kit. easy to install. one thing to note: my pressureized tank was leaking so i have to use those seal tape thing to solve the leaking problem. so i would suggest brs include a small piece of tape in the future. its been a month now but the tank's water still has this greasy oil smell in the water. i dont know how to get rid of it so i didnt drink from the pressurized tank yet.
Great add on to a great system. By John on 10/2/12John would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this unit from BRS and love it. I can't believe I used to pay for bottled water. I quickly plumbed this setup into my existing RODI and I have great tasting water too. I also added a taste cartridge also from BRS to ensure the best tasting water possible.
must have By Andy on 7/20/12Andy would recommend this product to a friendlove the clean and clear water
Outstanding Quality missing one thing By RJAllen on 7/15/12RJAllen would recommend this product to a friendI purchased the add on kit along with my ROI system from Bulk Reef. Was impressed with the quality of product and service. I've installed RO systems in the past and this was the most complete kit except for one item that caused 2 hours of grief. Most of us doi not have a basin wrench, the plumbers secret weapon for install/ uninstall faucets in tight places. The the very helpful instructional video created by BRS about installation of the RO faucet shows a plastic extension that makes installing and removing the faucet a snap w/o special tools. This item was not included in my kit. I would have been glad to purchase it is I knew it was no longer included in the kit. Guess I'll spend the $30-$50 for a basin wrench kit when I have to take the system out!
Fantastic justification for your spouse for your reef RO/DI By Alfred on 3/23/12Alfred would recommend this product to a friendOkay, two things: this is great in the sense that it is nearly complete! No more running to the hardware for this part or that. And, it turns your RO/DI unit into a great multi-tasking unit -- RO/DI water for your reef, and RO water for drinking. FOR ME, though, getting this unit made me easily justify getting the whole RO/DI unit in the first place -- "honey, we don't have to buy distilled water for the baby anymore! Just think of all the savings!"
Must have!!! By SG on 1/10/12SG would recommend this product to a friendI bought this when I purchased my 6 stage system, and I am so glad I did. I thought this would be hard to install, but it was very easy. I am no plumber and if I can do it you can do it. I use the RO water for drinking, cooking, and my pets water. Everything seems to taste a little better. Must Have!!!
Great Add on By hman on 12/20/11hman would recommend this product to a friendAs others have said it's really great to rationalise the purchase of an RO/DI system, especially if it's going to offset the purchase of expensive bottled water!
Bought this as an add on to the chloramine plus system and couldn't be happier. The system comes with extra fittings that make isolating the RO water easy. The only modification I made was to tap the the supply water for the DI off the supply tank,.
Great add on for chlorimine RO/DI Plus By Walter on 11/29/11Walter would recommend this product to a friendBRS didn't have a drinking water package with the chlorimine RO/DI system so had to get this add on drinking water kit separately. All parts included for install except doesn't come with final polishing filter that comes with the regular RO/DI plus drinking water package. Mine came with the non-airgap faucet. Can push teh handle down for instant on off flow or pull the handle up to lock in on position for filling large containers or soup pot.
Easy to install & gives me an excuse to buy the RO/DI unit By Shaun on 11/24/11Shaun would recommend this product to a friendWe used this item to allow our RO system to be filtered though and put into our ice maker system on our fridge. best thing we bought for our house. My girlfriend didn't mind me getting a RO/DI unit because of this item here. Just hook it up between the RO and DI Systems. you do not want DI water going to your drinking water.
Good RO Unit but needs a little tweaking By Phillip on 10/13/11Phillip would recommend this product to a friendI recently purchased this RO Drinking water system from BRS. The system as a whole is very nice. It's easy to install, maintain and use. I like the clean taste and the use for my aquarium is a plus.
My only gripe is with the faucet. This is an "AIR-GAP" faucet. This faucet has a tiny hole in front of it that functions much like a siphon break in case of backflow and prevents drain (or clogged sink) water from backflowing into the RO system. Good idea in general, but it is VERY NOISY. I recommend if you do not require this for your building codes that you bypass the the drain connections on the faucet. This required me to buy the 1/4" saddle drain and check valve here at BRS. The stock drain valve is 3/8" for the faucet's large drain tube. The check valve provides the protection the air gap is trying to accomplish without all the noise.
I found this recommendation at the link below, and is what I am ordering from BRS to silence my RO unit.
Like I said, great overall system for a great price, but needs a little tweaking to quiet it down.

Can the silver faucet be replaced with the brush on nickel faucet? My sink is brush on nickel and it might look a little odd with the silver look.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Dan,
Thats not a problem, just mention in your order comments (stage 2 of checkout) that you want the nickel and wed be happy to swap it out for you.

Why bypass the DI feature when filling the drinking tank? Is DI water only needed for aquarium use and not for drinking water?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Don,
Its generally not recommended to drink DI water as it may be "too pure". Drinking RO only water is recommended, hence the bypass.
This Add-On Faucet Kit is necessary to set up your reverse osmosis unit to supply drinking water on demand.
- 3.2 gallon pressurized tank
- RO tank valve
- Silver faucet
- Faucet adaptor
- Tee for between faucet and pressurized tank
- Ball valve for turning on and off DI water
- Check valve for insuring that water in the pressurized tank doesn't flush through the DI resin
- Tee for bypassing the DI stage.
20 Ft of blue ¼" tubing
