This product is just the booster pump itself (more intended as a replacement part). The power supply is either sold separately or is also included in the kit.
Let say I want to run the whole system at 70psi. Does the pump automatically turn off at 70psi?
There is not a direct reset switch. If the power supply is correct and the pressure switch is functional the unit should run as long as the pressure switch is not off. I have included the contact information for Aquatec below.

A booster pump is best installed right before the whole unit.
Benefits of maintaining higher water pressures
- Improved waste water ratio
- Improved membrane rejection performance
- Reduced DI resin consumption
Aquatec 8800 Booster Pump Features:
- ¼” Push Connect fittings
- Patented "flex-mount" base plate significantly dampens vibrations and reduces noise
- Adjustable pressure
Note: Aquatec 8800 Booster Pumps do require a minimum of 20 PSI to operate. Not having proper pressure feeding the booster pump will cause poor performance, and void the warranty.
great product By Matthew on 12/10/2016Matthew would recommend this product to a friendGreat pump. the power supply lasted about 3 years and had to be replaced but the pump itself is still going like brand new. I have purchased 3 of these and all of them work great! They do sell the power supply separately so you don't have to buy the whole kit again; just the part needed.
Great pump By Luis on 10/8/2016Luis would recommend this product to a friendMy water output before the pump was 35psi. Once I installed the pump my psi jumped up to 83.
Increase output and reduce rejected water By Lawrence on 7/13/2016Lawrence wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBefore having the pump, the ratio between rejected water and RODI was 2 : 1, now it is 1 : 1.23. I'm very very happy.
It used to be 18 minutes to produce 1 gallon of RODI. Now 8 minutes!! WOW !!!
The pump increases the water pressure from 50 psi to 90 psi, and when I turn the faucet to wash my hands, the pressure just drops to 80 psi.
* When you order, make sure you buy the "glycerin filled pressure gauge". Otherwise you can't measure the performance!
* I built a wooden stand on the floor for it. If I mount on the wall, the vibration will make some noise.
Good little pump By James on 9/9/2015James would recommend this product to a friendIt's worked perfectly! It pushes 85psi so I backed it down to about 70psi. The pressure is rock solid. If someone takes a shower or does laundry.. 70psi, no change. It's pretty quiet too, for a pump. I like the springy rubber mounting feet. They definitely help suspend it and make it quieter.
AMAZING! By Callum Pickles on 8/17/2015Callum Pickles would recommend this product to a friendI'm on well water so the pressure was running about 35 PSI.. When I hooked up the water booster it was running about 85 PSI! Very happy with this product!!
works great By o2c5 on 4/26/2015o2c5 would recommend this product to a friendThis pump easily doubled my water pressure what a difference from before, I can prepare water much quicker and be ready for any kind of water related emergency
Perfect!!!! By tbisque on 2/16/2015tbisque would recommend this product to a friendDoes exactly what I hoped it would do. The water pressure for the RO/DI 6 stage unit is now throttled back to 80 pounds! This and the 150 gpd upgrade were will worth every penny. Now making almost 150 gallons/day and have very little was water about 1 gallon good 1 gallon bad!
It does what it's supposed to do. By Phil on 10/22/2014Phil would recommend this product to a friendI suspected my water pressure was low when after only about 60 gallons I burned through nearly 1/3rd of my DI resin. I purchased a BRS pressure gauge (SKU: 200215) and discovered that the pressure coming from under my sink where I connected my RODI system inline was around 45PSI. As we all know I need >60PSI for my 150GPD Upgraded RODI system to operate optimally. I purchased the booster pump and it did exactly what it was supposed to do! I set it up inline between my water source and my RODI unit, plugged in the power supply (SKU: 200201) and my water pressure went up from 44 to ~95. Not only did I see an increase in RODI production to the 175GPD (as expected), but I'm using less than HALF the DI resin I was before.
great product By Ralph on 10/15/2014Ralph would recommend this product to a friendI needed to boost my water pressure after installing the second RO kit and this is exactly what I needed. It took my pressure from 55 PSI to 90 PSI. Runs quiet and seems to be very well built. Another great product that they offer here.
Just what I needed!!! By Michael on 10/9/2014Michael would recommend this product to a friendSo i was running a Stage 5 RO/DI and it was only hitting about 55psi and I was loosing a lot of production to the ratio of 4 gallons of waste to 1 gallon to clean water. Install this booster and it has instantly changed that ratio to 1:1 if not better. If your pressure is low get one of these you won't regret it...
Works, but noisey! By Warren on 10/3/2014Warren would recommend this product to a friendVery effective, but boy is it noisy. We can hear it when it is on in the basement and we are on the 3rd floor.
It's amazing By Zukari on 9/2/2014Zukari would recommend this product to a friendMoved into a 100+ year old house - and guess what I forgot to check? My water pressure! This thing took my horrible 40PSI and took it to 100+ on my RODI 75GPD Unit! I now make 5 gallons in minutes.
