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.
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.
We do recommend the booster pump to increase your pressure above 50 PSI. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Quick connect fittings can be removed once installed. This is a matter of holding the mur lock gasket with one hand and pulling and twisting the tubing out like with a finger trap. I have included a link below to instructions on removing the tubing. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Booster pump kit is all you will need to have increased pressure. Your current ASO will work great!
With a set up such as yours we would recommend the Booster pump if possible to keep the pressure optimal for the membrane. DI resin will tend to deplete quickly in the first several gallons and slow down after that. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
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".
The Aquatec 8800 Booster Pump Kit Includes and Features:
- Aquatec 8800 Booster Pump
- Aquatec transformer
- Aquatec PSW pressure switch
- ¼” push connect fittings
- Patented "flex-mount" base plate which significantly dampens vibrations and reduces noise
- Adjustable pump pressure
- Adjustable shut-off pressure point
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.
Wow you need this... By franksreefs on 8/24/2016franksreefs would recommend this product to a friendI have a well with enough pressure for normal household things. I'd heard that a booster pump was necessary if you have a well. So when the RO unit and the pump arrived, I set it up WITHOUT the pump just to see what would happen. I purchased the glycerin-filled pressure gauge so I could see the pressure as it was operating. Pressure was 20-30psi and the unit was barely producing any water. So I hooked up the pump and wow what a difference! Very satisfied. You seriously need a booster pump with a well.
Booster pump By Chuck on 8/5/2016Chuck wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIf you are like me and on a well, this booster pump is a must. My RO/DI unit would not produce anything worth talking about, but after installing this booster pump, I am now producing about 7 gph.
They've said it, I'll say it again... By LogTech on 8/1/2016LogTech wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is totally worth it. Even if your water pressure is decent, this will make it better. Does what it says, and does it well.
If you hate saving money and like wasting water, don't get this. Otherwise, GET ONE.
Great product and service By Tomoko on 4/30/2016Tomoko would recommend this product to a friendI am very happy with the booster pump kit and the help I received from BRS. It worked as it is supposed to from the get go. It takes such a short time to make a lot of water. I can step up on water changes.
Tripled my water production By Jim on 4/19/2016Jim would recommend this product to a friendHave well water and couldn't get my rodi to work rite. Bought this booster pump and works great would highly recommend.
Better than expected By Dan on 4/16/2016Dan would recommend this product to a friendIt just works. Boosted my pressure from 40 psi to 90, which makes my RO unit generate the full 150 gpd. It turns on and off like it's supposed to with the RO turning on and off. Best of all, it's much quieter than I even hoped for. And since I have it mounted in a wall adjoining my bedroom, noise was a concern. As long as it's secure, I can barely hear it. (I do use additional vibration padding to get it as silent as possible but am very satisfied with the noise level.)
Excellent Product By Paul on 3/21/2016Paul would recommend this product to a friendEasy install and improved performance of the overall filter output
Great addition By Brian C. on 3/21/2016Brian C. would recommend this product to a friendThe Aquatec Booster pump was a great addition to my RODI environment. It has definitely helped improve the output of the unit. It is easy to install!
Greta Product By Lori on 3/15/2016Lori would recommend this product to a friendIncreased water out put 2+ times. An investment. Worth it's weight. Another great product from BRS!
Best Addition By shawn on 3/14/2016shawn would recommend this product to a friendExperienced 35psi living in city. Added this booster and increased to 90psi when filter is working. Excellent product.
Save time and money By Chris on 3/8/2016Chris would recommend this product to a friendWith this product, my 6 stage filtration system has increased production by twofold. If I understand correctly my waist should be reduced as a result of increased water pressure. Due to both factors, I definitely AM saving time and theoretically should save money as well. Thanks BRS for another great product!
Excellent Product By Steve on 2/22/2016Steve would recommend this product to a friendSimple to install, raised pressure from 40 to 80 psi, and doubled the production. I was surprised how quiet the pump was and had to put my hand on it to see if it was running. I also added the auto flush system so one less thing to remember.
