Doubled my PSI By jeffrey on 9/20/2014jeffrey would recommend this product to a friendJust installed this on my RO/DI unit and my before PSI was 40 PSI and with this pump kit I am getting just above 80 PSI. I also installed my RO/DI unit inside a cabinet since I have mine outside under a deck. If you dont you will eventually get green algae problems in it. Keep it dark ;-) Have to order a bracket to be able to install another 10" canister for my DI resin so I do not yet know how the pump will effect the DI depletion. It seem to use DI resin fast when I had only 40 PSI. More to follow
Does a Great Job, but is far from quiet By Bert on 7/3/2014Bert would recommend this product to a friendThis pump does a super job if you need the pressure for your RODI system as I did. Simply be aware it's far from silent when it operates. I can hear mine operating with it's fast chug-chug-chug in the other room with both the door to it's cabinet and that room closed.
Great Product By Brittany on 5/14/2014Brittany would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this kit for my RO/DI unit and I was amazed at how much more water this thing helps my unit produce. My home has a well and I was always sitting between 35-40 PSI. I purchased this pump and now it keeps my input at a constant 80 PSI. I did however have to turn the small screw on the top because when I initially hooked it up it was over 100 PSI.
Works as it should By lowtek on 5/9/2014lowtek would recommend this product to a friendI was only getting 45 lbs of pressure through my brs water saver system I received some time ago. Not wanting to run my r/o unit at half capacity and waste tons of water I waited till I got this booster pump. Well worth the 1 year wait. Pump is solid, heavy, made in the US and runs pretty quiet. Boosts my pressure to about 90 psi which is well over the recommended pressure so I'm a happy camper.
This is awesome coupled with the 150 gpd upgrade By jonathan on 5/9/2014jonathan would recommend this product to a friendI bought this pump with the 150 GPD RO upgrade and all i can say is wow. It went from taking half a day to fill my brute trash can to just over 3 hours. cant wait to see if and how much it cuts down my water bill
Worth the Investment...... By Tyler on 5/5/2014Tyler would recommend this product to a friendI went back and forth deciding if it was worth it to get this or not. After installing it and running it for a few weeks I have to say it is truly worth the price. I not only make water more efficiently, but waste a lot less as well. It is nearly silent when running and enables me to get the exact pressure I want.
Great Pump By Victor on 4/16/2014Victor would recommend this product to a friendReceived this pump a few weeks ago, it raised my pressure to around 85 and is quite. I have it mounted on a small piece of plywood on the wall in my water closet.
It works By NH Dan on 4/10/2014NH Dan would recommend this product to a friendI just received this pump setup a few days ago. I also bought the 150 gpd upgrade with it. I am on a well and could only get about 40 psi. I hooked up the pump and pressure switch and I am getting a steady 70 psi. The pump is quiet and has really increased the water production.
It does what it's supposed to. Good product.
Rocks.. at over a 100 PSI By Chicago on 4/2/2014Chicago would recommend this product to a friendOk.. this pushed my PSI from 48 on the incoming to over 100. Not sure since my gauge only goes to 100. I understand it is advertised to push water PSI to 115.
A must have By David on 3/25/2014David would recommend this product to a friendThis a must have for your RO/DI unit.
Exceptionally Quiet By Phenganax on 3/12/2014Phenganax would recommend this product to a friendI was expecting this pump to be fairly loud and was concerned because of where I have it in my apartment; however, it was quieter than my Bak-Pak 2. I also have readings of 70 psi after my second membrane, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to increase their psi or add a second membrane. I was also concerned that it would be too much pressure for my 15 gallon pressurized RO reservoir and that the pressure valve wouldn’t shut it off. Much to my satisfaction this has not been a problem, the whole system works flawlessly now!
Works great! By Bageezus on 2/27/2014Bageezus would recommend this product to a friendReally boosted my pressure. Works perfect. Took my pressure from 30psi to over 60!

Does the 8800 booster pump kit come with tubing?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Paul,
It does not, but the pump installs inline with your existing feed line so in most cases no extra tubing is necessary assuming your system is already plumbed from the water source to the RO/DI unit.

how much more pressure will i get , i dont want to get to much an blow things up .....i have 150 GPD working on 55 to 60 psi....... an i now i need 65 psi for this 150 GPD ro 5 stage ......
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Rocky,
The pressure will depend on your incoming water parameters but 20psi would be pretty typical. No worries about going too far though, the pump itself has a pressure bypass on top that will allow you to turn it down if its too high.

Is there a option for the 3/8 pump in the complete kit also? If so, same price?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Shaun,
Currently only the 1/4" booster pump is available in kit form. We carry the 3/8" pump as a replacement pump for folks that already have a system, though you could buy a power supply and pressure switch to make your own 'kit".
