Excellent product By abi on 4/29/13abi would recommend this product to a friendGreat pump! My municipal water pressure was at 29 psi this pump brought it all the way up to 60 psi with room to increase the pressure! Excellent for my 150 gpd rodi water saver plus unit.
Great product By retnip on 4/15/13retnip would recommend this product to a friendThis is really a neat little pump, it comes with everything you would need to boost the pressure to your ro system. It boosted my pressure from 45lbs to around 90lbs. It is a little noisy and needs to be mounted to something so it dosnt walk around. Its easy to hook up, just snip out a short section of supply hose, and a short section of the hose that goes to your storage tank to insert the pressure switch. When you float rises, the pump will shut off automatically.
Works Great! By Christy on 4/13/13Christy would recommend this product to a friendThis works great! Bought the 75gpd RO/DI unit and when I got it set up I was VERY disappointed to find I only had about 30 psi and a periodic trickle of filtered water coming out. Purchased the booster pump and patiently (not really lol) waited for it to come so I could get rolling on curing the dry rock I previously purchased. Hooked it up and started getting nearly 100 psi!! Had to turn it back a little. Now pulling a steady 80 psi at 0 tds and have my rock curing in the basement!! :-) Next purchase might just have to be the converter kit to increase my unit to the 150 gpd now that I have the pump and know it could handle it!! :-)
great solved my low pressure problem By chen yang on 3/30/13chen yang would recommend this product to a friendbefore the pump i was getting around 45 psi at best. after I installed this , which was super easy! I got around 95 psi. so i have to dialed down a bit to around 80 psi. i am really happy that i can finally utilize full of my ro di unit. none of the other big aquarium online store offer booster pump kit and instrucitons. thank you brs!
Time is money By greenwizard on 3/25/13greenwizard would recommend this product to a frienddoubled my water output.
Wonderful! By Terrie on 3/13/13Terrie would recommend this product to a friendAbsolutely worth every $1 spent for it. My water makes in 1/2 the time it use to and I do go through less Di Resin :)
Great Product By Toby on 3/12/13Toby would recommend this product to a friendI get 60psi from my municipal water supply. When someone is using water, it's alot less. This eliminates the problem. Im getting 90psi constantly. 1# Doubles production 2# Better rejection rate.,reduces TDS before the DI canisters from 14 before the pump to 7-8 TDS. Saves DI Resin.
Well worth it. By Bob on 2/24/13Bob would recommend this product to a friendI was only getting 42 PSI with my home water pressure on a 75 GPD
RO/DI unit. I added a 150 GPD upgrade kit and this pump and get a steady 88 PSI. It is a very quiet pump and fills my 32 gal. can in half the time. I am very pleased with this product.
Easy Installation By Jeremy on 2/22/13Jeremy would recommend this product to a friendMy pressures were borderline with running a second membrane. This was installed very quickly and the output was improved drastically.
Superb By Edward on 2/15/13Edward would recommend this product to a friendWas getting only 28-30PSI before getting this unit. I live in an old factory converted to a high rise apartment complex.
I initially looked on ebay for a cheap unit, but after adding it all up, you really arent saving much money. I spent the extra $20 or so on the Aquatec 8800 kit from BRS and am very happy that I did.
After installing this, I get a steady 90PSI. My RO/DI output is a steady stream of water where it used to be a couple drips per second.
Pump is quiet, installation a breeze. I highly recommend this product.
Pump it up By LOUIS on 2/15/13LOUIS would recommend this product to a friendSo this certainly improved my RO/DI unit in combination with the 75gl extra membrane. I wasn’t getting the amount the video stated till I understood that I needed the extra pressure. I am glad I got the full kit and not just the pump. I like it when all the parts needed are on hand and just to be installed instead of tracking down all the parts to actually use the pump. Less water to waste and collect for other use’s helps with the water bill.
Allows me to use my RO/DI Unit with a Well By Miles on 2/13/13Miles would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this kit when last year when I moved to the country. I use it in conjunction with the Auto Shutoff Kit and am able to let my RO/DI system run continuously (if I forget to turn it off). This pump has brought me up from 40 PSI to 70PSI. I initially had to adjust it the output down from 90 PSI but have not had any problems with it. It is by no means silent, but I have it in my unfinished basement and can't hear it upstairs.

I have a drinking water 4 stage RO system that has an Auto Shut Of Valve as well as a pressure tank. I would like to order the booster pump kit and install in on my system. Where does the pressure switch go in regards to the 4 lines coming in and out of the ASOV?
Thanks for your help!
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Marc,
Great question. The pressure switch goes on the product water line, which would be the blue line, after the auto shut shut off valve. If you haven't seen it yet, checkout our booster pump video. It has a quick run down on how the installation goes as well.
