A Must Have if you upgrade your membrane By david on 9/25/2014david would recommend this product to a friendQuite simple. If you upgrade your membrane, you must have the correct size flow restrictor.
The opening on the 150 is very small. I suggest blowing through the hose to see if air makes it all the way through. if not, it is clogged.
Easy to install By Tom F on 5/5/2014Tom F would recommend this product to a friendEasily installed this and a 75 gallon per day filmtec membrane to upgrade my 35 gallon per day rodi to a 75 gallon per day rodi. Still probably need more for 210 gallon tank.

Which line do I connect the flow restrict or to? I bought the R/O unit used, replaced all the filters including the membrane. The unit did not have a restrictor on it...
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Mike,
The flow restrictor always goes on the waste water line. They come in a few different varieties including some that are on the inside of the tubing. Your unit likely wouldn't have worked without one so pretty good bet its hiding there somewhere.

Where do you install the flow restrictor? Does it go on the incoming water to the membrane or the out going side?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Thomas,
It goes on the waste water line out of the membrane.

i bought your 150 gpd water saver upgrade kit should i change my 75 gal flow restrictor to the 150 flow restrictor
Bulk Reef Supply Hi John,
No you should not. You want to keep your existing 75gpd flow restrictor :-)
by Joey on July 19, 2014, @1:09 PM
Is The 550 restrictor for 75gpd? I have a dual 75gpd membrane system with a 550 restictor. Just wanted to make sure it had the right restrictor. Thanks
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Joey,
If you have 75gpd membranes then the 550 would be the correct flow restrictor :)
by Ryan on June 17, 2014, @2:25 PM
I bought a used 75gpd unit of yours from a friend. He didn't have the restrictor and I have a spare 100gpd membrane. If I purchase the restrictor for a 100gpd unit can I use my membrane and produce 100gpd?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Ryan,
As long as you change the flow restrictor to the 100gpd to match your 100gpd unit, you can run the 100gpd membrane.
All BRS Reverse Osmosis Systems have the appropriate flow restrictor installed.The 75 and 100GPD flow restrictors are inline models. The 150GPD is a capillary flow restrictor.
