Great filters By Earl T. on 10/12/2014Earl T. would recommend this product to a friendI use these and only these filters in my BRS 5 stage RODI unit. It is the best price on the internet, you know you are getting what is made for your filtration system.
great for replacing my rodi filters By Kevin on 8/23/2014Kevin would recommend this product to a friendit came with perfect instructions very simple to switch out filters but
i'm giving this filter replacement 4 stars because i believe it should come with the di resin sponges. if you read this i suggest you buy the replacement di sponges or maybe bulk reef should add them to this package.
Simple & Fast By Nicholas on 5/30/2014Nicholas would recommend this product to a friendMy system was not used for a long time and I thought it would be best to change everything out. BRS has made it really easy to buy these rather than searching the web for each part separately. Really simple and ready to use. Videos from the site helped a lot.
Great Package! By Stephane on 5/27/2014Stephane would recommend this product to a friendeverything is packages to make it easy. as a new reefer all i had to do is look up this kit and order. After, the install was done because BRS labels the filters. i just matched the labels to the canisters.
I can say that you can see the quality in these filters, they are not built cheap.... proof is when my meter still shows no TDS.
Great Filters / Great Buy By Jeff on 5/10/2014Jeff would recommend this product to a friendYes these are Great filters at a Great price but no matter what you order or no matter how much it weighs the palin old ground delivery cost a fortune and Always takes a week and a half to two weeks to get to Florida. It seems that those whos orders are under $175.00 are paying for the free shipping of the others.
Saying that...I have ordered supplies from these people for several years now, they have good quality stuff, just wait till you need $175.00 worth and don't be in a hurry.
Good Filters By John on 4/1/2014John would recommend this product to a friendMine last quite some time. Its time for a refill now. Will be going with the same parts. Fast shipping.
Great value By Scott on 3/26/2014Scott would recommend this product to a friendVery easy to replace. I ordered this kit when I noticed my TDS #s starting to climb. Watched the quick video on packing the Di resin and started the task of replacing the filters. In all, I bet it took no longer than 10 min start to finish. Much cheaper to order this kit than trying to get rid of algae from high TDS. Plan on ordering a kit with every BRS order I place.
A+ By Zebberdee on 3/8/2014Zebberdee would recommend this product to a friendI am a customer for a year now and find these guys to be on the ball! Great job.
Easy By Kav on 3/3/2014Kav would recommend this product to a friendAll in one kit. Just click order and its over. Nothing to think about afterwards. Everything you need is included, you COULD order each part from multiple places and save a FEW bucks but this way is much easier!
Perfect for me By David on 2/15/2014David would recommend this product to a friendI bought the 5 stage BRS RO/DI a couple years ago. Its been perfect and only takes about 2 min to change out the filters. I cant think of a single reefer buddy that doesn't have one from BRS.
Best purchase I every made By Zeek the Dog on 2/10/2014Zeek the Dog would recommend this product to a friendThe 5 stage RO/DI filter is one of the best buys I've made and the replacement supplys are a great value. I get about one year of use before I nee to change things. The system gives me a 9 on the meter (pre-DI) and ZERO water after the exchange columb. Love it
Good product at a good price By Tony44 on 1/31/2014Tony44 would recommend this product to a friendPackaging all together make it easy to change. Price is as good or better than buying from other suppliers.

I don't have a brs rodi unit, will this work with mine? I have an aquafx unit
Bulk Reef Supply HI Minh,
RO filters are pretty much universal. They will work with your Aquafx unit as well as just about any other unit out there :-)

In your opnioin about how often should the filters be changed. My TDS meter consistently reads 3 or 4 on the inlet prior to my DI resin and my DI resin needs to be changed about every 6 months so just wondering about the other filters.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Cal,
At the least the prefilters should be replaced yearly but it really comes down to usage. The carbon blocks are good for 6000g of total water (which is waste + product) and the sediment filters should be replaced when they become dirty/clogged. If either is clogged it would generally be visible by a decrease of water pressure on an RO/DI pressure gauge.

I own the standard RO unit with the DI, it's been roughly a year and I'd like to replace the necessary components in which need to be replaced within this time. Is this the correct kit to purchase? Thank you kindly.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Charlene,
If you have the 5 stage standard unit this would be exactly the filter kit you would need!

I have the 5 stage plus system. I've produced about 10 gal a month since new April 2011. The TDS meter still reads 0 and pressure is good, but they're green, black, and brown. Do I need to replace my filters?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Chris,
Its best practice to replace the sediment filters and carbon blocks yearly if nothing else. Filters like the carbon blocks serve other functions like removing chlorine (which otherwise damage the membrane) and won't show up as TDS when they are depleted. Changing them on a regular basis ensures your not damaging the much more expensive membrane which otherwise should last 3-5 years or even longer.

I have the 5 stage ro system. I need replacement filters but I am not sure exactly what I need. I see the kit for the five stage unit. The kit includes a bag of resin. What chamber is that for. Thanks.
Bulk Reef Supply High there,
If you have our 5 stage RO/DI system then you would want the 5 stage RO/DI replacement filter kit. The bag is the bag of DI resin which replaces the DI resin on your RO/DI unit (the last stage).

I have the five stage BRS rodi unit. I've noticed two things:
1) I last purchased filters a few months ago. The sediment filter is a very very light brown. Yet, counter intuitively, I am seeing the pressure rise. I can easily hit 100PSI, unless I dial my kitchen sink back to about 25% output. Is this normal?
2) I've owned the entire unit for several years. In that entire time, I've never seen anything more than 1 TDS for the inlet and 0 for the outlet. No matter how long the unit goes without servicing, that seems unlikely. Is the meter faulty?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Steven,
1) Eventually that sediment filter will need changing as it gets very filthy, but if the pressure is increasing that's simply because the input water is. High pressure is a good thing but you do want to turn the sink down to keep it under 80.
2) The TDS meter on the unit measures the input of the DI (which is actually the output of the membrane) and the output of the DI. Considering your high water pressure and the fact that the water has already gone through 4 of the 5 stages of filtration, its not that unsual to see a number like 0-1 on the "in" side of the DI resin. Its likely just an indicator that your tap water was fairly low in TDS to begin with. The fact that the output number reads 0 and the resin hasn't turned entirely yellow also support this. Its a good thing, most folks would love to experience this!

I purchased the 5 stage drinking and reef filter kit and I was wondering why im missing a filter. I have a 5 stage drinking filter system with the one di filter that is separate from the drinking unit. The replacements came with a di package, 5 micron, purtrex 05 micron, chlorine taste and odor reduction, and a .6 micron. When should I replace the other filter and where can I purchase it?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Tiffany,
The filter that isn't included in the kit (which is different then this one, sounds like you have the 5 stage drinking and reef water replacement filter kit) is the 75gpd RO membrane. They only need to be replaced every 3-5 years, or often even much longer if you treat them nicely. They can be found right here in the future:
Recommended Installation for this package*
- Stage One - Purtrex 5 Micron Sediment Filter
- Stage Two - MATRIKX CTO 5 Micron Carbon Block
- Stage Three - MATRIKX CTO 0.6 Micron Carbon Block

Most of the filters included in our kits are made in the USA, NSF Certified or WQA Gold Seal Certified and Manufactured using FDA-compliant materials.
*This is our recommended filter arrangement and we have found to be the best combination for the most common installations and water conditions. If you have something unique about your water supply or installation please contact customer service and one of our WQA certified water specialists will be able to assist you.
