This is my first to/do system and to be honest I couldn't be happier. The set up was a piece of cake and very quick to install. I'd definitely recommend this system to others.
High quality, works great By John on 7/6/2014

I have been using this for unit for about 18 months now. It is easy to setup and offers various connection options. My water pressure was border-line at 40psi so I purchased the pressure pump to bring the pressure up to 80 psi. I have a 1 micron whole house filter, therefore I am not seeing any sediment build-up in my sediment filter stage. I have changed my carbon filters after 14 months. The membrane is still fine (as indicated by the TDS meter "in" reading). I religiously use the membrane flush after each use. The only modification that I did was to add a tee with a shutoff valve between the output of the "in" to the TDS meter and the input of the DI stage. I then open this value to dump this initial water into the sink when I first start the RO/DI process and wait until I see the TDS value drop to around 4 ppm before closing the valve and forcing the water through the DI stage (approx 1 minute). This saves on DI resin since the TDS of this initial water starts in the hundreds). I am currently using the color changing resin, however with the dual TDS meter, this would not really be necessary if you monitor the meter values. I do water changes every two weeks of 15 gallons. With the water changes and the top-off water, I am replacing the DI resin approximately every 10 weeks.

I have a 120 gallon set up, and I was always buying my water. I calculated how much money I could save by getting my own RO/DI unit, and I bought 5 stages deluxe. Excellent build quality! I would highly recommend!

This RO/DI system was well built and easy to install -- came with everything needed but the water! The materials all seem to be of the highest grade, there have been no leaks, and the water comes out absolutely clean with no measurable TDS; the "RO/DI water" I had been getting from a LFS was mud in comparison.

This is a great kit, very easy to use and setup, comes with everything you need to install in a temporary or permanent installation. All in all, very well thought out kit. If you do end up requiring any additional parts for your install BRS should have everything you could possibly need at a great price.
BRS RO/DI is a good buy! By Dennis on 6/4/2014
Dennis would recommend this product to a friend
I was not trusting the quality of RO water from my LFS since I noticed the LFS RO canisters had been looking ugly for quite some time. So I ordered my own RO/DI unit from BRS. The unit arrived well packaged. installation was quick, and painless. I have had my unit for 2 days now. 0 - Zero TDS, 2 food grade brute cans full of good water. At 60 PSI this filter cranks out the RO water. No more running to the LFS for RO water and walking out with $150 worth of corals. I am totally satisfied.

I had previously purchased a named brand version of RO/DI system. After dealing with leaky joints and seals I gave up and went with the BRS option. Been using this for over a year now and its never been a problem. I am just getting ready to replace the filters on the unit (still reading 0 TDS) so its been a great investment.

We live where the water is so hard its almost chunky. 0 TDS coming out of this system every time. We run our water once a week and make about 20 gallons at a time. Hooked it up to the washing machine water faucet with a Y connector and mounted it on the garage wall. Couldn't be happier!
Wonderful investment By Eric on 4/18/2014

After reviewing many RO/DI systems online, I opted to purchase this one, and I cannot be more pleased. Very easy to set up (especially with the "how to" videos on Bulk Reef). I needed to purchase an adapter for my sink where I chose to install it. Works wonderfully. Originally the PSI was only around 35, so I did also purchase a booster pump from Bulk Reef to increase the PSI to a more proper and efficient level to produce more RO water and to maximize the DI use. Depending on your personal set up choice and the water pressure in your home, you may not need to purchase an additional booster pump. If you are a serious about this hobby an RO/DI system is a must in my opinion.

started reefing over 10 years ago and always bought my RO water from my LFS which is about 30 min away. finally decided to break down and buy one. did a lot of reviewing and found BRS to have the best deal. Bought the 5 stage+, set it up in my basement with a 35gal brute barrel, and love it. Should have done it 10 years ago. the money saved on gas has payed for this 3 times already.

I've been nothing but impressed with this unit - it produces perfect water quicker than I can use it, the quality is great and the service from BRS is tops. I added a drinking water set up and hooked it into my refrigerator as well. If you need an RO/DI system (and if you have a reef tank - YOU DO!) then you absolutely will be happy with this system.

I use to go to the LFS to get water. Why would you with RODI systems out affordable. For my 65 gal this is perfect. to have back up RODI for ATO, water for salt mix, water to have just for rinsing off tank supplies, and not to mention RO for drinking water. It just paid for it self the first week. No more going to store and back, loading for store to car, from car to home... Need I say more.

I have had this system now for about 9 months. It is very economical to run and produces absolutely 0 TDS water for my reef tank. The refills for the DI is what I most commonly need to replace due to South Florida tap water being horrible and I recommend keeping a couple in reserve for easy replacement. I would absolutely recommend this for any fish tank enthusiast.

I have had several RO systems over the years and I have to say that the quality of the 5 stage kit from BRS is top notch!!! The systems may appear to be slightly higher in cost compared to others offered on ebay and such however the quality of the parts and fittings is definitely noticeable. This system comes with absolutely everything you would need to get it installed quickly with many fitting options for your supply water source and the pressure gauge and TDS meter is great! If this system fits into your buget grab one and you will not regret.

I received my order yesturday with a bunch of new stuff and, of coarse, The 5 Stage Plus RO/DI system. I was very impressed with the level of education, training, support and advice that you provide here. I have to say that BRS is, by far, the most customer friendly retail store i have ever had the pleasure to spend my money at. And im not just talking about Reef or aquarium supplies!!!!! After being out of the hobby for over 25 years, and coming back into now, with this level of technology and learning curve, you folks at BRS really go many steps beyond what someone would expect from a retailer. From your newletters, to your product reviews, your Q&As and your informational series on BRStv to the attention to details found on your website, and the product documentation that came with my BRS items.
I truly feal that you folks are looking out for me, will not let me fail, and could teach other compainies a thing or two about what to do to earn business and RESPECT!
Thank you very much. I know my oly experience with BRS is a bunch of keystrokes and my iPad speakers. I somehow you have me feel like i am your friend in a great hobby!!! Thanks again!!!

Definitely would recommend a RO/DI unit for anyone in the hobby. When I first started, the first thing I was told was to go get an RO/DI unit, as it will pay itself off in no time. No lugging water/water jugs back and forth from the local fish store. I currently have a 75 gallon reef and it makes plenty of water to keep up with everything in a short amount of time.

Carrying jugs back and forth between the LFS and home sucks, so that was my main reason to get it. I also got the faucet/tank add-on kit so my family can enjoy clean drinking water too (well, it was a good excuse to my wife to get it). The plumbing is so easy to put together, as all the connections/valves slip onto the water lines. Nothing at all to complain about, and all positive. Had is for 2 years now, and haven't had to change the filters yet....

I rate this a 4 and not a 5 because it is extremely slow out the box. But on the same note, it's ready to go without buying anything else. The meter is not only cool, but accurate. Good product all around ( minus mentioned problem). Beats going to the lfs or grocery store.

Great RODI By ReefandClimb on 2/5/2014
ReefandClimb would recommend this product to a friend
This is my first rodi unit an I'm very happy with it so far. I'm in an apartment, so bein able to use a quick connect and my kitchen sink makes things very easy. Only issue is that if your water pressure is low like mine (about 40psi) you will not make anywhere near 75 gallons a day. I would say about 20-25 is more accurate but unless you're replacing huge volumes daily it shouldn't be a problem.
Five stars because it produces 0 TDS rodi water, was easy to set up, and was a good price.

I took the DI filter off for now and just the RO portion makes 0ppm water. Rerouted the ppm meter to monitor tap water going in and RO water coming out. ~36/0 respectively.The water tasted absolutely incredible, too!!

Andrew would recommend this product to a friend
This is my 3rd RO unit and I am impressed from the beginning. It is great to have a pressure gauge, dual in-line TDS meter and clear canisters. I can tell exactly what is going on. What is going on is perfectly clean water which my previous (non-BRS) units could not do. This unit is cheaper than the Aquatic Life 4 stage I had and has more features and actually works. Highly recommended and I don't recommend much.
You won't regret it. Super easy set up. Literally 5 minutes to making water.

Everything you need to make your own RO/DI water. It comes with good instructions and all of the fittings and adapters you could need for any setup. The extra items the Plus kit comes with are really worth it. The gauge, flush kit, and TDS meter work to keep the filters cleaner longer and let you know when it's time to replace them. I've recommended this product to personal friends and they also agreed they would buy it again.

This is my first rood unit. First off ill say I was very impressed with the build quality. This is a very stout unit. I have mine setup off a garden hose valve I have plumbed in the cellar. I get about 58lbs of pressure. I would say you get about 5 gallons if waste water per gallon of good water. The bottom of my di unit is starting to collect some brown crap already I'm assuming this is normal. It's just a slow process if I was to do it again I would have bought the 150gpd unit for the quicker speed and reduced waste. I ran a tube to the washing machine to use the waste water to wash my clothes.

I've been lugging buckets of water back and forth from the fish store for too long. I was always a bit skeptical about the quality of water. I finally broke down and bought a BRS RO/DI system. I absolutely love it. It came ready to use and puts out perfect water. I shopped around for units and BRS had the competition beat by a mile. Comes with everything you need and the various fittings they include make install a breeze. Highly recommended!
