I am always surprised by the level of quality of BRS products. This RO unit is no exception. Very nice setup with everything you need to start making your own water. High quality everything. I've made over 1000 gallons with this unit and have zero complaints. Thanks BRS!

This was the perfect setup for my needs, I live in the country and my well water needs to be filtered. Prior to buying this system I was purchasing bottled ro water, this system has paid for itself in very short order. Also, I added a pressure tank and faucet (prior and separate from the di) for drinking water for the house. Excellent quality product and very easy to setup with push fittings.

Great RO System By Keith on 9/3/2014

This is a great system. The value is tremendous and it comes with everything most people are going to need to be able and hook it up. I would say it runs less than 75 GPD, so if you actually need that much output (who really does?) I would say step up to the 150 GPD system. I would buy again!

Great set up easy to install would have given 5 stars but some fittings were shipped cracked.The shipping box wasn't damaged. Pros. Easy install works great. Cons. The unit needs better inspection before being packaged.

I purchased this so that I wouldn't have to buy water at the local fish store. So far it's performing as expected. I'm now thinking of buying the add on kit to double my output to 150gpd.

The BRS 5 stage plus RO/DI unit is very well built at a very good price & comes assembled so all you need is to pick a place to mount it, connect a few lines & you'll be making pure water in no time. I also purchased the 150GPD upgrade kit to make water faster & help save water as well. Definitely a must have for anyone making / mixing there own saltwater for there REEF or FOWLR tank's.

High quality, works great By John on 7/7/2014
John would recommend this product to a friend
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.

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 6/5/2014
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....
