Works Great By Tom on 5/21/13Tom would recommend this product to a friendI didn't have enough pressure for my RO system. Very easy to install and now I'm getting all the water I need.. Works great!
Awesome in almost every way, maybe a little loud By tramboneplayer5 on 5/18/13tramboneplayer5 would recommend this product to a friendMy 75GPD 6-stage chloramines RO/DI kit was more like a 35-40GPD system until I got this pump. Water used to trickle out so slowly. The TDS going in to the DI stage was high as well and I was tearing through DI resin like crazy. When I added this pump, I had to turn it down a little to get back to 80psi by using the small hex screw in the center of the top and turning it counter-clockwise. Water shoots out so much faster (80-90GPD) and the TDS is lower out of the RO stage. The only mistake was mounting this to a wall - the vibration is carried through the house and it makes it pretty loud. I will try moving it to another surface that is de-coupled from the wall.
Does the job By den75 on 5/12/13den75 would recommend this product to a friendExcellent pump. PSI went from 32 to 85 immediately increasing my RO/DI output and lessening my waste water.
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 2/25/13Bob 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.

How to decrease the pump pressure of the booster pump?
It went up to 90 psi when it is on.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Peter,
The top of the pump has a very small allen wrench screw adjustment. That screw adjust the pressure bypass and will lower the pressure. Most folks never have to adjust it but if your pressure is that high this is a situation where you would want to bring it down to under 80psi.

looking for a booster pump my ro system is 150 gpd at 80psi need a booster pump to increase water pressure to my system . for a hydroponic system
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jon,
What psi are you at now? Most likely this is what your looking for.

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.
