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 2/19/14

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 The connections worked easily with my current (outdated) faucet.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 2/16/14

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 2/16/14

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 2/15/14

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! :)

Great By reddog on 2/11/14

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 1/31/14

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.
