Allows your RO/DI system to run at the recommended PSI instead of whatever your water pressure is from the city. Shutdown switch works great. Setup and mounting the pump is simple.
Aquatec Booster Pump By Brandon L. on 1/7/2017

I'm kicking myself for not purchasing this before. In all my years of reefing, this has got to be one of the best additions I have ever made. Was at 45psi before and at 95 now. Water was a trickle before and it's now a nice steady stream. My unit vibrates quite a bit. It's mounted on the wall and is audible in my daughters bedroom up above my garage. Minus one star for the vibration but this thing seriously kicks butt.

I bought my RO/DI unit and I was only getting 35 psi. Once I bought this booster pump, it is now reading 90 psi. It works so much faster and much better than it use to. The TDS is at 6 now and the best I was getting before was 11. If you are getting less than 50 psi, I would highly recommend this!
Super Quiet, low vibration - really works! By Jerry on 12/6/2016

Like others here, my water pressure was down around 40psi. At that pressure, the RO unit is very inefficient and you get mostly waste water. I'm super pleased with this booster pump. I agree with the other reviewers, Even if you have "ok" water pressure, this will boost it to the optimum level for the RO unit. You'll get much more filtered water and much less waste water. It will extend the life of some of your key filter components too. I also want to mention how quiet this pump is. This pump is barely audible. All you can hear is a soft low thrum. It's also low RPM, so it has very little vibration. The vibration it does have is low frequency, and the rubberized mounting pads easily absorb it. I can set this on a table top and it doesn't budge. The power supply consists of a white module, with a fairly long power cord on each side (one running to the pump, the other to your AC outlet). The pump comes with two rubber plugs sticking out of the input/output holes. You really have to pull really hard to get these out. A note to that effect would be good in the instructions. The video doesn't mention this either. In one scene they are there, and in the next they are magically gone.
Wish I had got this sooner! By Chris on 12/6/2016

After many years of using RO/DI units at typical residential house pressures I finally broke down and bought this...wish I had done it sooner!
Typical pressures at the unit would run from 30-40 PSI before...now consistently run at 90 PSI. The performance boost is amazing. Not only rate of creating product water...but rejection ration and rate at which DI resin is consumed.
Seems a bit pricey until you see what it can do...would never run my RO/DI without one now!

I 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.

If 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.

This 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 4/30/2016

I 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.
