I just received my 150 GPD water saver unit today, and I had it installed and flushing the filters in about 15 minutes. Super easy to hook up, and the instructions are idiot proof. Right out of the box I could see the high quality of the unit, and filters. I had need running another "top" brand RO/DI for some time now, and the BRS RO is hands down built better. I only have about 47 PSI on the gauge right now, and still getting about 5 gallons an hour. I plan to get the booster pump soon, but even without it im getting lots of water production. MyTDS coming into the unit are 480 and after it passes threw all the stages and di it is 0... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this BRS RO/DI, definitely worth the money. We even plan to use it to make RO water for our 8 month old son. Keep up the great work BRS, you guys ROCK !

I have been using the BRS 5 Stage Water Saver Plus RO/DI System - 150GPD for the past few weeks to produce and this RO/DI really produces water fast. It is probably one of the best purchases that I have made for my reef build. Having RO/DI water on supply prevents trips to the LFS or having to go to the grocery store to get water. TDS is 0 coming out. AWESOME!!!!
This is the one By Ben on 3/16/14

I have had this thing for over a year now and have yet to change out my resin, filter, membrane and I am still reading 0 TDS. I would not worry about trying to find the best non industrial grade RO/DI filter, because this is the one.
Produce 87 GPD @ 58 psi By gaby on 3/15/14

I am tired of buying RODI water from local fish store for 50 cents a gallon. I purchase this RODI system after about 1 year of reefing. The 150GPD is theoretical output. With tap water pressure 60 psi in my basement, it takes 16.5 minutes to produce 1 gallon RODI. It is about 87 GPD. The waste water is 8 minutes per gallon so the ratio is of waste and RODI is 2:1. Environmentally speaking, this is much better than other system with 4:1 ratio. I store the waste water to water indoor plants. Note that my water pressure is 60 psi but it reaches the membrane at 58 psi (2 psi was lost in between sediment filter and carbon blocks).
The first time I setup the system, it is leaking due to broken connector (Elbow NPT Push Connect) - other reviewers report the same thing. I call the customer service and they send me a new one. Initially I set it up connected using chrome faucet adapter but the adapter itself leaks. I try the “Mur-lok EZ angle stop adaptor” to connect under the sink but the plastic thread is so soft and can get easily damaged. Instead of EZ angle adaptor, I order John Guest Angle Stop Valve ($9.99) which I highly recommend. I use it under the laundry sink. No leak. It fits perfectly and it is truly a life saver. It have been producing 50 gallons RODI today.

KEEP IN MIND THIS COMES WITH HANGING BRACKETS AND SCREWS ALREADY ASSEMBLED.I LIKE THE ADDED FEATURES OF 150GPD,AUTO SHUTOFF AND TDS METER.ONCE DI FILTER WAS SATURATED REALLY STARTED MAKING WATER. I ADDED A RESERVE TANK FOR DRINKING WATER ALSO.

Bought this for my 110 gallon saltwater reef tank. Fantastic product, build quality is exceptional, when you are hooking it up you can tell its a very well-made unit. Filters are excellent and ease/variety of hookups to almost any situation makes it a must have. Been getting 0 TDS water for 1 month now with no issues. Very happy customer. I get approximately 4 gallon per hour in my house. However, my house is about 65 years old and has smaller water pipes than newer houses so I don't have the increased water pressure. If it's a newer house the output should be more around 6 gallon per hour like advertised I would assume. Overall very happy.

I recently bought a BRS 5 STAGE WATER SAVER PLUS RO/DI SYSTEM - 150GPD. After lugging saltwater from my lfs for 6 months I had enough. I bought the rodi system and just wished I bought it 6 months ago. It works great and has made my water changes much easier. Also Bulk Reef Supply is one of the best companies I've done buisniess with. Great prices and even better service. I placed my order and it was shipped right away. Thanks BFS.
Good unit By Mike on 2/28/14

I would give this unit 5 stars but knocking it down to 4 stars. My reasoning is because when I received this unit the plastic NPT nipple between the first and second stage was cracked. I called customer service and they said it was "cracked during shipping." Customer service immediately sent a replacement NPT nipple free of charge. I researched online and discovered I am not the only one that had this cracked NPT nipple issue. Maybe in the future, perhaps brass NPT nipples can be used to make this unit robust. Other than that, this RODI unit works as advertised. I am getting about a 1:1.5 RODI to waste water ratio at 65psi.

I spoke with BRS on the phone to determine which unit I should go with for my 280 gallon (outstanding phone service) and we settled on this one. I could not be happier! Produces gobs of water and is really easy to hook up and sets up fast fast fast. You will be pumping water in no time! This is my first RO/DI unit to date.
Fantastic RO/DI, fast & efficient By Paul on 12/29/13

Upgraded to this from the BRS 5-stage 75 GPD that I'd had >1 year - wow, wish I'd gotten this one originally! Don't get me wrong, the 75 GPD is a solid performer for smaller tanks (less than 75 gal), but the 150 GPD Water Saver produces RO extremely fast: even at only 40 psi I'm getting 5 gal in about 1 hr and best of all _far_ less waste than before! The dual TDS meter again is a great advantage to see exactly what the TDS reading is, and it's accurate - no guesswork when to change DI resin. Spot checks with a handheld TDS meter shows the RO/DI TDS meter remains correct.
Excellent RO/DI system By George on 12/29/13

This system is extremely fast and efficient. I've used it both as a source of drinking water (take out the di portion first), and of course for my salt water and fresh water systems. The water is pure and the system is easy to use. The options that they give us to hook it up is amazing. You can hook it up to a hose out side, to faucet, to the toilet/sink water inlet and even to the copper piping outside. At 150 gallons per day... you can easily make a 5 gallon jug in less than 50 minutes if even that. Best of all, it comes preassembled with all the bells and whistles! I'm super happy with it. It more than serves its purpose!
