I have run RO/DI for over 10 years. 100 GPD on the current one. I Have low TDS of 102 -110 and reasonable priced city water. I had an 800 size orifice on the system as that was what was recommended when I built my customized RO/DI system. So it was black Friday and BRS had these on sale, time to pull the trigger. I bought a new membrane as the current one was at 7 tds now but was at 2 when I installed it. I ordered the 600 orifice as I thought the flusher would help keep new membrane clean over the long haul and my water is very clean city water. So when I got the flush kit, I hooked it up before replacing membrane and a little over a month later, my TDS is between 1 & 2. The smaller orifice is saving me water and the flusher is going to make my membrane & DI resin last longer.
Plus the first minute of dirty water is flushed in stead of put in my ATO tank. I evaporate at least 4 gallons a day(depends on how long cooling fans run on tank), and do water changes of 45 gallon weekly(?). The mix tank fills at least 1 hr quicker than it did. I have 2 inline TDS readers on my system. 1 meter reads water into unit and the other reads water out of the membrane. The second meter shows water out of membrane and then after DI resin. So I can read membrane with 2 different inline testers and they both read the same. So these are accurate readings. This will pay for itself in less than a year. I have been putting off buying one for a couple of years, and now I wish I would have sooner, even at normal price. Go ahead, start saving money now you won't regret it, especially if you make a lot of RO water.

SAVES LIFE OF MEMBRAINE

This is just the ticket. Easy to install just pay attention to the in and out arrows on the device. Painless and it does exactly what is should. This coupled with the booster pump, float, and pressure switch for me are working exactly as I hoped they would. One happy camper.

I am using my RO system to clean some brackish well water. The RO membrane needs to be flushed regularly to maintain its performance. This device does just that. It provides unrestricted flow for 25 seconds every hour keeping the membrane functioning well under these challenging conditions. I just wish I could adjust the interval between flushes.

Not much to say, it does what it's supposed to. It came with no instructions on how to install, and as of yet there is no video on how to hook it up (HINT, HINT). There’s not much to installing it but I did make the mistake of thinking that it was to replace my manual back flush valve, not replace the whole back flush assembly entirely. Another words I missed the whole flow restrictor part of the title. After I figured that out I noticed the valve wasn’t opening up for me. Then I realized that I plugged it in before the electronic pressure switch shut off. It needs to be spiced in between the Electronic pressure sensor switch and the booster pump (would have been nice to know). Other than that, it does make a loud hissing noise because of the pressure being squeezed through the restrictor, I welcome it myself so I know when the flusher and RO/DI unit are working and when their not. Just in case I can’t hear the booster pump rattling the stud I have it mounted to through the walls of the house.
