Great System By Jeffrey on 9/6/12
Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friend
This is an awesome RO/DI system. When it arrived it was well packaged with all the parts that in tact. Installing it was easy the only difficult part was getting the thread adapter for my faucet. *Note* by a steel adapter not a plastic one and use silicon grease fot attach the system to the faucet. Other than that I was making water in no time at all. Beats running back and fourth to my LFS to get water for my tanks. The color changing resin and TDS meter keep my mind off worrying about my water quality and more focused on other important issues. Like what I would like to add next to my tank.

I have been using this for about one year now, and it has paid for itself several times over. This is the single most important thing I have bought for my tanks, and this model works so easily. Plug and play, makes zero TDS water every time.

Works perfect. Having the TDS meter and pressure gauge are invaluable. I changed my filters after 12 months of use just because I felt like I should. I hadn't noticed any drop in TDS quality and I go through A LOT of water.
Easy install, Great Product By Steven on 8/30/12

Have to say this was one of the easiest things to install. The kit came with just about everything needed to be running in minutes. All I needed extra was a larger self tapping saddle valve, since the one included was for smaller pipe.

Review after 15 months. By Michael on 8/18/12

First of all, great product, great price, easy setup. 5 stage plus has everything you need. Learned the hard way: Don't wait for a pressure drop or for your sediment filter to turn brown. Buy a couple of extra sediment filters (just 2.99) and change it as soon as it changes color. This will extend the life of your other filters dramatically. I feel this is a must have product and recommend it to everyone.

Looks Complex -- Easy Setup By Joshua on 8/15/12
Joshua would recommend this product to a friend
When you have this system on the table getting ready to setup it looks like its going to be complicated to setup. This is a very simple easy setup. Plug 1 line in the DI filter, plug 1 line in the water source, plug 1 line down a drain and go! It literally takes less than 5 min to setup and get going. I've used both the garden hose adapter and facet adapter (both included) and both worked great.

I got this system up and running in 2 minutes. The instructions were helpful for set up and it helped that I watched BRS TV to see before I purchased and felt confident in the quality of the product.
Best built system ever By Nevin on 8/10/12
Nevin would recommend this product to a friend
The plastic that holds the filters on the main sediment area are so thick that people have thought they were glass. This had almost everything for us to install. Thanks so much BRS. PS if you buy this grab a couple of ball valves and some extra hose. If you are a serious reefer you will find this handy. Only con is there is a LOT of waste water. 1/4 waste water/clean water ratio.
excellent! By Sergio on 8/9/12

I am taking the leap into my first SW tank and after doing some research and reading the forums about BRS and their units I ordered this one. I am so happy with it! everything came installed. All I had to do was hook up the hoses. It is very efficient and easily hooks up to your tap with the included attachment. Thanks so much guys!
Excelent product great value By Tony on 8/7/12

I picked this up on a group buy session and I am glad I did. This makes it so easy to maintain proper topoff level. I was also pleasantly suprised how easy it was to setup. If you can change a faucet in your home you should be more than qualified to install this unit. Great Performance + Great price = Excelent Value...
Great unit with an awesome value! By Vincenzo on 8/3/12
Vincenzo would recommend this product to a friend
I didn't realize the value of this unit until I attached a float valve to the container I was running my RO/DI water into. Built in auto-shot off works beautifully. TDS meter ensures the quality of my water and the attached pressure gauge is very useful. The set up was a breeze, probably one of the easiest parts of getting started with the hobby. At first, I thought 75 GPD was slow due to the time it took to fill my 125 gallon. But now that the tank is established, and my float valve attached, I have more than enough water for water changes and my auto top-off. A MUST BUY!
Best RO/DI System By David on 8/3/12
David would recommend this product to a friend
Just got the 75GPD 5 Stage Plus System yesterday. It took about 15 minutes to set up. Ran for an hour to to clean out, then put it took work. No leaks and it ran perfectly. Checked DI meter during run time and the output water was 000. Input was 010. I highly recommend this system if you are looking for a RO/DI system that does it all at a good price. PS - Don't do as I did and forget to order a float valve since it has a built in cut off valve.

One of the best investments i have made... it is much better to make your own rodi water rather than carrying it from your lfs

Too much waste water By Robert on 7/28/12
Robert would recommend this product to a friend
This system works, giving me clean water , great additional accessories that allow you to hook it up almost anywhere. My biggest dislike of this system is the waste water. I do not think this system is saving me money or water, as a matter of fact I may be spending more on water than I was when I was going to the LFS.
I did go back to purchase the 150 gpd add on, to save on water and cash, but the price went from 54.99 to 74.99 overnight! I do suggest finding something that cuts down on the waste water. I am not sure if I will keep this system.

Discovered this product at a fellow reefer down the street from me. After 2mns of seeing it work, and being able to feel how study and the construction of it, I went straight home and ordered it. Packaging was perfect, delivery was faster then expected. A definite "must have" for anyone thinking of seriously engaging this hobby.
Quality Control could use a review by management. By Oscar on 7/24/12
Oscar would recommend this product to a friend
The system is very quick easy to install since it comes pre-assembled. But the membrane housing had a major leak at the thread which sprayed water all over my kitchen floor. Good thing I know a thing or two when it comes to DIY. The housing was a PITA to open so I wrapped the lid with rubber bands and a leather belt wound over it. I stepped on the end of the belt and used both hands to turn the housing. It was late at night so I couldn't buy strap wrenches from the hardware store. It turns out that the lid o-ring was displaced and got mangled on the threads. I swapped the lid o-ring with the housing o-ring and applied generous amounts of silicone grease. After putting everything back together it was finally leak free. Overall, this unit is probably the most customizable system on the market. The price is good as well as overall value.
Excellent Value Works Perfect. By James on 7/19/12

This unit is a stand alone set-up works very well it is everything that one would need in order to have that precious RO/DI water dispensed at home no more LFS or grocery store runsfor your reef set-up.
The TDS meter makes you assured that you have what you need being dispensed no Guess Work.
All the hookups included in the kit(which) evryone charges EXTRA for or included in the kit pricing make installation a breeze I had a y connector that I attached to the laundry faucet . Everything is installed in the laundry area ,It looks very neat and professional.
I purchased the 150GPD accessory kit with the house pressure being 75PSI the unit dispensed 5 gallons od RO/DI water in 53minutes with 0 TDS oh Yeah could not be happier.
