Good product By Jim on 6/27/2014

Overall very good quality product. It does what its supposed to do and given good water pressure (mine at 75psi) seems to produce more than 150gpd. I really think BRS needs to spell out "water saver". Output and waste are roughly the same and what it really means is they used lower rejection membranes. That's all fine and well but what that means is higher TDS going to DI unit where the resin gets used up much faster. I don't have a TDS meter on the input side to RO but I'm getting readings of 4-5ppm going into DI.

I had been using a "comparable" RO/DI unit for several years. I got tired of the 4:1 waste water ratio even when using a pump. Bought this unit and added the pump, neither of which could have been easier. Right out of the shipping box was installed and running within minutes with no leaks. The ratio is MUCH better, I feel less guilty having so many fish tanks in my desert environment (even though I already used the waste water for watering plants and doing laundry.) I would highly recommend this product.

I have been installing and using these units for several years now. They are very high quality and the ease of installation and use make these an excellent choice. The last client I installed one of these for is making his first leap into reef keeping and he couldn't be happier with the unit.
Great RO/DI system By Anna on 6/5/2014
Anna would recommend this product to a friend
We have been using this system for drinking water for the past 6 months and can't be happier. It's very well made, water comes out clean and the pressure is great - it takes me less than 5 minutes to fill up a 1 gallon water jug. It came preassembled and it took us less than 2 minutes to hook it up to our kitchen faucet (we just put it on the counter next to the sink). I'm thinking of getting another one for my mom's.
EXCELLENT unit, EXCELLENT performance, EXCELLENT quality By jason c on 4/17/2014

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 3/15/2014

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 3/14/2014
gaby would recommend this product to a friend
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.

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 2/27/2014
Mike would recommend this product to a friend
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.

Fantastic RO/DI, fast & efficient By Paul on 12/29/2013
Paul would recommend this product to a friend
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.

George would recommend this product to a friend
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!
Simple installation and easy to use By Chris on 12/16/2013
Chris would recommend this product to a friend
I received this product, not quite knowing what to expect with the installation. Many things you buy are "batteries not included" and you end up going out to pick up all sorts of parts / pieces to complete the install. This product is so easily installed and comes with every option possible to connect it to a water source.
the UPS delivery on the other hand was quite an ordeal. I wish other delivery options were available and though BRS has been fantastic, the delivery will be a consideration for future orders

This is great for anyone in the saltwater hobby! I would recommend getting a booster pump with it though which is going to run you another 100 dollars. Without a pump mine runs at 40 PSI and will fill a 5 gallon bucket In about an hour. I would recommend this to anyone.

My first RO system. Followed instructions and let it run for an hour before actual use. DI out ppm was at 700 after one hour and TDS meter died. Got my handheld TDS and cheked black tube ppm output and it was at 12ppm. Basically the product came with the blue and black tubes reversed. BRS sent me a new DI filter and TDS meter so all is well.

The system works great no leaks at all. TDS meter works great and so does the air pressure gauge. I'm glad I purchased the 150GPD because it did take a few hours to fill up my new tank from scratch but that is to be expected. I also noticed that BRS now carries ATI lighting. I am highly considering buying that for my reef setup. Customer service with BRS has always been great. Thanks so much for everything BRS. You guys are awesome.

If you gonna do it, do it right, and this is how you do it right. Two things to watch out for is -that it gets a little heavy when full and it doesn't come with mounting hardware.Besides that, it comes with everything you will ever need.

This is my second RO unit. My Kent 100 GPD was showing it's age and I saw some positive feedback about the BRS RO units. I am really impressed with the features and quality of this 150 GPD system! The system has high quality fittings and the accessory packet comes with a lot of connections. I've set my system up to be portable and I connect it to my sink with the included hose connection fitting, fill a 30 gallon trash can, and drain the waste water into the sink. Being on well water, I am only generating 30-40 PSI, so I ordered the pump kit to increase pressure. The pressure gauge and the TDS meter really help to show what you have to work with. Even with my low water pressure, the system is doing a pretty nice job of filling my trash can up. If you're contemplating buying this system, go ahead and do it, you won't be disappointed.

When I first looked into getting a RO-di system I thought that it would be difficult to setup, not at all. After cutting and putting all the tubes in the correct places I was making water within 10 minutes. I have about 70-75 psi and it makes about 7.5 gallons per hour. Makes my life much easier not going to the LFS for water all the time.
