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! :)

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.
Great Value By Steve on 1/26/14

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 1/20/14

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 1/15/14
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.
