Best Bang For The Buck! By Forsaken77 on 2/16/2017

I have been using this membrane for over a year and get 1 TDS on the product water, before the DI resin.
I split mine off the washing machine valves, both hot & cold, using a regular garden hose splitter. I then used a "Y" hose meant for washing machines to combine both the hot & cold into 1 output. So 1 leg of the hot & cold goes to the washing machine and the other leg of each splitter is combined into 1 output that connects to a short, food grade garden hose. That connects to the RO/DI system.
I run the GE premium .6 micron sediment filter with a 1 micron carbon block, both sold here on BRS.
My TDS from the tap varies between 35 and 80, but comes out of the membrane at 1 or 0. I have 80 psi going into the membrane with no booster pump and fresh pre-filters. The key is to flush the membrane (mostly before) you make water. If you have the 3-way tds probes connected inline you can watch the tds get lower and lower while flushing. Obviously it's good to flush afterwards, but I use one of the auto shutoff kits to prevent over filling and that usually stops the water before I get to it. I'd rather that than ANOTHER flood.
But BRS sells a flow restrictor with a valve knob so you can open up the flow just by turning the knob. If you're new to RO/DI setups I would HIGHLY recommend installing the auto shutoff kit.
Also, just to let some people know, you CANNOT run these membranes without carbon before it. Chlorine and Chloramine will kill the membrane. I made that mistake in the beginning when I was rinsing a new membrane and thought I'd bypass the pre-filters. That's a no-no.
This membrane is great if you have the pressure. There's no doubt that I am getting more than 150gpd. That's at 65psi. So at 80psi this membrane flows.

I have had my last one for 10 years. Decided to replace this one because it was starting to leak. As long as you run water though it before and after you make water it should keep 10+ years! BRS is great at having products like this at hand that they will ship that day or next.

Wow, this thing puts out a nice stream of high quality H20! Just make sure you have the line pressure to run it. High rejection rate membrane showing 0 TDS out the product line.
Great Membrane for Great Price By Shannon on 7/19/2012

This is the first time that I have ever brought this product, as I usually have a 100 GPD Membrane for my tank.
After changing, the water is clear & the algae problem i am having is clearing up nicely, there is no new growth. My RO/DI water was reading extremely high & now it is back to zero ppm.
This membrane is also at a very good price, as others I have priced are much higher. I will defiantly be buying this product again.

This works as advertised. Crystal clear and pollutant free. I replaced my 75GPD membrane with this and it works as expected. BRS is a great place to get all these kind of materials
Great Membrane But. By Dana on 4/11/2012

First I want to thank Lou in tech support He took time with me to make sure I had everything hooked up correctly. I had a 60 gpd. unit before I switched . To make a long story short Check what size booster pump you have. You definitely need the aqua tech 8800 if you want full output. Also if your using a saddle valve get rid of it as you need more volume than it can provide. After those changes the pump will put out 100 psi. if you need it. I also have 50 ft of 1/4 inch tubing in a cooler with 2 heaters to help warm the water need to add more heaters now the flow rate is to fast and comes out a little cooler now. But getting 2 tds. out with 95 tds. coming in. and 125 gallons per 24hrs. I'm sure once I get the water temp up to 75 Deg. it should be very close to 150. Thanks for all the help Guy's
