Great Product and features... Couldn't be happier! By Rogeman on 12/5/13Rogeman would recommend this product to a friendEverything was packaged well, put together properly and is now producing 0 TDS RO/DI water, my fish thank you and my back thanks you as well, no more 5 gallon jugs!!! Don't forget to order your valves, Tees, elbows, floats, and extra line for your custom set-up.
I was reading some earlier reviews, and there is some confusion out there; The duel in-line TDS meter is reading after the RO membrane(In) and then after the DI stage (Out). It does not measure tap water TDS.
The best!!!!! By Travis on 12/5/13Travis would recommend this product to a friendThis is the by far best quality ro system i have ever owned. Had this thing running in minutes after opening box. No leaks no problems at 90 psi it makes about 6 gal an hour very nice.
Excellent product very easy install By robert on 12/1/13robert would recommend this product to a friendI just got the BRS 75 gallon ro/di plus system and could not be happier. Comes fully assembled very easy install. Makes perfect 0 TDS water. My water pressure is just above 40 psi and i didn't need to get a booster pump to get good flow. I've had great results with BRS.
so far so goooood By warrior reefer on 11/27/13warrior reefer would recommend this product to a friendlook really reliable, super easy to install and really good water quality , my corals star looking happier, but no matter is to early for a review , is easy to see the quality . highly recommended...
Excellent By Monster on 11/20/13Monster would recommend this product to a friendNice and easy to install... I had it mounted, up and running in less than an hour... Performs as advertised!
Works great! By C on 11/19/13C would recommend this product to a friendOnly disappointment is that the sink adapter that was sent to me was bent. I just went to Home Depot and got an adapter for the hose fitting and hooked that up to my sink.
Great product By small_fry_keeper on 11/12/13small_fry_keeper would recommend this product to a friendTook me longer to get it out of the box than to get it going. Very very happy should have got one years ago my cat fish are super happy to have good water...
Great Product By Kevin on 11/9/13Kevin would recommend this product to a friendSimple to hook up and meets its rated output @ 60 PSI water pressure.
Installation instructions are clear and well illustrated with photos.
The pressure gauge and TDS meter are easy to read.
Great Value all around.
It would be nice if they offered an permanent connection kit as well. Luckily the local big box had a knowledgeable plumbing guy. 3 new parts and 30 minutes later, it is permanently connected under my laundry sink.
Unit leaked on arrival By Dave on 11/8/13Dave wouldn't recommend this product to a friendTwo separate tubes were leaking badly when i hooked the unit up. When I took it apart both tubes had been scratched/damaged prior to assembly. Once I replaced the tubes no more leaks.
Just sloppy build quality.
Excellent By Josh on 10/28/13Josh would recommend this product to a friendVery durable and well made. Couldn't be happier with the shipping and handling.
Great item By Fitz on 10/22/13Fitz would recommend this product to a friendEasy set up, plug and play really. Just put fitting on faucet, push red hose in and turn on water. It works great and the waste water is great for the garden or pets.
Great but I'm also unsure about the TDS meter... By David on 10/9/13David would recommend this product to a friendEverything was easy to deal with and set up. I had it under my bathroom sink with the quick-release for the faucet but then decided to permanently hook it up under my kitchen sink. I spent a lot of time figuring out plumbing parts (such as a saddle valve for my output tube) but that has nothing to do with the unit itself. I've been using it since and definitely recommend.
Just as MCOLON mentions in the 9/30/2013 review, the attached TDS meter reads a single-digit number for the tap water going in and 0 for the RO/DI output. Maybe he can update when/if he uses a different TDS meter to compare. If I do the same I'll try to update this review....

I have the 4 stage system. My question, I have 2 and sometimes only 1 TDS , according to the meter, conning into the unit. Disc that mean I don,t need to use the unit at these times ???
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Edmund,
The TDS of your tap water doesn't generally change so the "IN" on the unit is setup as the measurement of the water going into the DI (after it has already gone through most of your filtration). It is not a measurement of your tap water which would be significantly higher (likely closer to 100) so you would always want to run the unit.

On this RODI system. This exact one. Do i just need the float valve for 12$ or the 22$ with the check valve? Thanks!
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Dalton,
You would only need the float valve itself as the other components are already installed.

I have 35# of water presure do I need a pump to go with this do/di and if so what do I need to get ?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Paul,
Your pressure is low enough that I would recommend a booster pump as an RO/DI unit is going to work very poorly if at all at 35psi. Below I have linked the booster pump kit that you would want.

Will I be able to hook this up to my washing machine connection without making a hole?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Jason,
The unit comes with a laundry tub/washing fitting. You could use an existing washing machine fitting if you have one available, or you most hardware stores carry a wye fitting you could use to split an existing source into two outputs so you don't have to disconnect your washing machine.
Also, the threads on the washing machine fitting and a laundry tub are also the same threads as a garden hose.

Hi, I want to know how long will these filters (Specifically DI resin) last?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Ramin,
The actual results will vary depending on your water but a good ballpark is that the sediment filter is generally good for around 3000g, the carbon block 6000g (this is total water, so waste + product). The RO membranes will last 3-5 years, or even longer if you treat them well. The DI resin however is really impossible to say. Its entirely dependent on your feed water. If you have high CO2 and High TDS, it will have a short life and vice versa. For most folks it lasts about as long as there sediment/carbon blocks but it does really vary significantly.
Value systems are smaller, portable and affordable. The BRS 4 Stage Value PLUS Reverse Osmosis/Deionization System includes all the essential features necessary to start making pure RO/DI water at 75 gallons per day. Plus an air-filled pressure gauge, membrane flush kit and HM Digital Dual Inline TDS meter.

- Purtrex 5 Micron depth sediment filter
- MATRIKX CTO 5 Micron carbon block
- 75 GPD Dow Filmtec Membrane
- Single Deionization(DI) stage with refillable cartridge
- Air-filled Pressure Gauge (100 psi) to help ensure the RO system is performing properly
- Membrane Flush Kit to help maintain RO membrane
- HM Digital Dual Inline TDS (total dissolved solids) Meter to help monitor system
Parts Bag Includes:
- Filter wrench to tighten and loosen canisters
- Chrome faucet connector to make a non-permanent connection to kitchen sink
