Great first ro/di system.... By JEFF on 2/25/2014
JEFF would recommend this product to a friend
This is my first ro/di system and for the money, I don't think any other company can beat the quality and value of this one. Easy to set up and use. I mounted mine in my garage above my washing machine. I purchased a y fitting to split the water connection between my washer and the ro system. Connected the red line to the y fitting using the included hose bib connector. Black line went to the washer waste pipe. Couldn't be easier. Also, the inline TDS meter makes it easy to monitor your filters and the water quality coming out. Thanks BRS..

I purchased this unit about a week ago and so far I am very impressed. The unit came well packaged and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. It was very simple to hook up and produces 0 TDS water. I'm looking forward to seeing how it will perform once I start filling up my new 210 gallon tank. I would highly recommend BRS and this product to anyone.
Excellent ro/di unit! Arrived quickly and well packaged! By FishysPlace on 2/18/2014
FishysPlace would recommend this product to a friend
I purchased my rodi unit in April of 2013. That's when I began my saltwater addiction. Lol. I ordered the unit based on lots of research in many forums and threads to find the "right" unit for me. My unit arrived well packaged and very promptly! I think I ordered on a Monday morning and got it by Wednesday evening! It was way faster then I expected. It's pretty big if you've never owned a filtration unit but it fits under the kitchen sink! The connections worked easily with my current (outdated) faucet. My water is around 80 psi and I let the filter run for about 30 mins before I began filling my 10 gallon. Well, it took a while before the filter got "wore" in but now I think I can get a gallon in about 10-15 mins. I am about to move into a new home and I already have a 75 gallon tank ready to get cycled as soon as I can move in!
I have processed over 150+ gallons and my di- resin is about 1/4-1/3 brown/discolored.
I wanted to wait to review this product until after some long term usage.
BRS has excellent customer service! Don't be afraid to call them as they will take the time to answer your questions/concerns!
Best RODI By Bradley on 2/16/2014
Bradley would recommend this product to a friend
I have had this unit for over a year now and am very pleased with the performance of it. Can't say enough about this unit and BRS. Just a few weeks ago I was changing the sediment filter out and ended up braking the nipple that connects the canisters together at 2:30 a.m. In the morning, after emailing BRS about it they emailed me back first thing in the morning and explained that this was not under warranty since it was a year old, but they were still going to send me a replacement nipple for free...... WOW! This surprised me because I really didn't ask for them to replace it but rather just what I needed and if they sold that part ( I couldn't find it at first) this is what I have come to expect from BRS because they are such a outstanding company!
Great unit, simple install By Paul on 2/16/2014
Paul would recommend this product to a friend
Great unit. It was a simple install. There was no leaks from the factory. I didn't read the TDS coming out of the wall, but post RO it hovered around 4-6 TDS and post DI, it read 0. Looking forward to now using nice RODI water instead of conditioned tap water. I do suggest purchasing the tube cutter recomend. You will need to purchase other plumbing parts to integrated this system,
Everything the hubby wanted By Shannon on 2/15/2014
Shannon would recommend this product to a friend
This was a birthday gift for my husband. It took a few days longer than what seems to be the norm, to get here, but that was due to the winter storm, I'm sure. It did get here the day before his birthday. Whew! As I know little about these, I will say that my husband LOVES it. It was, and has, everything he wanted in a RODI system. He has it all ready to go in the laundry room. Waste water dispenses through the drain. It produced much faster than we both expected. What I DO know is "packaging". The packaging was impressive. I have NEVER ordered anything online so well-packaged, and put together! It was practically ready to go, out of the box! Thank you, for making me a hero! Lol. I know it's early, yet, but I will give it five stars, at this time! :)

This RODI system is great! I had a broken nipple between chambers 2 and 3 when I first installed it but BRS sent me a new one with no questions asked. Things like that happen sometimes. Tech support has been amazing. My TDS was only 1ppm to begin with but it's definitely 0ppm going out. I mounted this in my laundry room. I put a Y connector on the cold water line splitting off of the washing machine connection. I also put the waste water line down the waste water tube for the washing machine. I mounted it about chest level on the wall to the right of my washer. I have a 40 gallon square rubbermaid container that the water flows into. I mounted a surge strip on the wall which plugs into a GFCI protected outlet. I put a powerhead, aerator, and heater on this power strip. I turn on the water on Wednesday's after work, turn on the power strip before I go to bed and turn off the water Thursday after work. I then pump this water into another container using a powerhead (I added an in-line switch) to make saltwater. I mix my salt with my RODI water, check my salinity, put in a powerhead/aerator/heater and let it sit overnight. Then on Friday (the next day) I do my water change after work. I'm about to start pumping the water to the tank from the same room as I make it in. That should make life easier. Right now I roll a 28gal rubbermaid container to the tank and pump it in that way. I also siphon the old water outside using a python siphon hose. I just ordered another python and a 1000GPH pond pump to pump the water from the laundry room to the reef tank.

This is a great system for the price since you get everything you need to make RO/DI. Setup is practically plug and play unless you need to buy an adapter from your local hardware store to make it fit your sink. Soon I'll be upgrading to the 150gpd water saver kit to reduce my waste water.

Nice System By Greg on 1/31/2014
Greg would recommend this product to a friend
Like a lot of folks I researched the different brands and BRS seemed to be the most consistently higher rated. The price for features on this one was good so I had it shipped up here to Canada. Arrived with a broken plastic connector between the first 2 canisters (sounds like a common shipping problem after reading other reviews). BRS sent me a pair of replacement connecters right away with no hassle. After starting it up I found I had to tighten most of the water lines and one of the canisters as they leaked under pressure, but that's a minor thing, and I should have done it in the first place. Has been running great since then, very simple to setup and run. All the water testing I have done shows perfect and all my shrimp breeding tanks are doing much much better using this RO/DI water.
Great Value By Steve on 1/26/2014
Steve would recommend this product to a friend
BRS did a great job on this RO/DI system. I looked at a handful of other competitors (the filter guys, ispring, and buckeye) and it seemed this system was the best overall value and the easiest to setup.
I gave this 4 stars because the hookups packaged in the system were only for temporary installations. It took some work on my side and a trip to the local hardware store to figure out how address a permanent, under-sink installation. Other than that minor inconvenience, this is a flawless system at a great price! Thanks BRS!
Worth it By Chris on 1/20/2014
Chris would recommend this product to a friend
I talked myself into this system over the base model. I figured I'd eventually add the tds and pressure gauge anyways. When it arrived, the plastic fitting between the first 2 filters was broken, probably due to the shipping. Instead of going thru the return process, I just picked up a heavy duty fitting at the local store for $2 and fixed it myself. I'm using this to provide water for my 155g bow front. This is my first time using rodi so I hope the benefits are worth the money and the time. Quality of the product and ease of use is great. I recommend this system.
Pretty Decent Machine with user friendly flaws By Jamie on 1/14/2014
Jamie would recommend this product to a friend
Seems like a decent machine. Easy to hook-up. Mine came in DOA and sprayed water everywhere. Seems like they would have a system in place test the plumbing somehow before sending to customer. They were great about sending me out a a elbow to fix the problem, but you would think the tech person would have know to ask me to unscrew the elbow and see if there was a missing o ring or if it was sitting in there properly. I did not know anything about the machine and how it worked, but if he would have simply told me to do that I could have fixed the problem immediately instead of having to wait for the part to come in. There was a o-ring in there and not installed properly, would have been an easy fix. Another downfall is that I thought I was going to get about 1200 gallons before replacing anything, come to find out that does not include the DI resin. I only made 75 gallons and mine expired, I was disappointed that I had to stop making water and order DI resin to finish the job. Another flaw is there need to be open & close in-line valves on all 3 lines. People like me have to unhook & store until next use. I tried getting the water out of the lines and was displeased that there was no easy way to roll up the lines and shut the line off to keep left over water from dripping out...I had water all over the place trying to situate the lines and it still leaked all over the floor where I was storing it. I would say if these issues were resolved I would give it a 5.
Best RO/DI unit for the value By Vince on 1/14/2014
Vince would recommend this product to a friend
I was shocked when I saw this unit go on sale for black Friday for $129.99 I jumped on it and never looked back. I want to give a super detailed review on this to give anyone who may be considering it perfect proof this is the unit to get.
First off when it arrived it was packaged in a heavy box with tons of packing peanuts and the whole unit was super well wrapped in heavy bubble wrap. opening it was the coolest thing. Everything was installed on it already. Nothing was overlooked including the fittings to fit onto a standard sink faucet.
Component wise it has each stage marked with the correct filter / media to put in each spot making it super easy not to mess it up for beginners. It comes with a lot of tubing, you could easily run the unit 15 feet from where you have it connected. The push connect fittings are very well made and looks great no leaks. Now for the cool parts for me were the dual inline TDS meter, the RO membrane backflush kit and the air filled pressure gauge. These are more important that most people would think. The membrane flush kit makes it SUPER easy on the fly to backflush the RO membrane which is important to keeping it clean and running it's full 75GPD. Next is the gauge, this is important in monitoring the pressure to make sure your making as little waste water as possible and keeping this filter running at optimal pressure.. (NOTE running this on the second story of your house will result in lower pressure reading. ) Now the dual TDS meter is amazing. I mean what is the sense of an RO/DI if it's not giving you 0 TDS water. It tests the water coming out of the RO membrane and also the water coming out of the DI resin, Makes it easy to know what needs to be replaced when the time comes. Last but not least the DI resin, it's color changing super easy to know when to change. With ~12TDS coming out at my RO the DI resin takes it down to 0 TDS and I have made ~ 70Gallons of water and the DI is maybe 1/3 depleted . If you need a unit to perform better I would suggest adding an extra sediment filter of smaller diameter to the mix to read a lower TDS out of the RO so less depletion of the resin, The resin is also super affordable.
I love this product!

Man I cant say enough about my 75gpd value plus system what work of art! and simple to hook up even I can do it! its not super fast but wasn't looking for speed anyways. I cant really figure out the TDS meter is says 004 going in and 000 coming out ! I would think my tap water would be a lot higher so don't really know if its working correctly. but that's a miner issue. very well made and durable not cheap junk like others and filter replacement is low cost. I do recommend getting the Mur-Lock fittings and a ball shut off every were you are sending water. makes everything easier. No leaks=Grand Slam Product one very Happy customer here. don't shop anywhere else but bulk reef supply!!

Value Plus - no question it is! By MMM on 12/9/2013
MMM would recommend this product to a friend
A) this was my first BRS order - shipped fast, packed well
B) When they say value plus what they really mean is you are getting one heck of a value. How many RO/DI units priced at this level come equipped as well as this thing? Very few, in fact I didnt find one and have been looking for a while.
C) 75 GPD my butt! I am sure its because I have great water pressure (just over 80 psi) but I can make about 20 gallons in about 2.5-3 hours. My old 75gpd took much longer - nearly double
D) Sturdy mounting kit, length of line more than enough, TDS Meter, valves, shut off and flush kit all work great
E) Wish I had bought this a long time ago - I got it on the black friday doorbuster sale but even at the regular price it is still an awesome deal.

I was reading some earlier reviews, and there is some confusion out there; The duel in-line TDS meter is reading after the RO membrane(In) and then after the DI stage (Out). It does not measure tap water TDS.
