Amazing Unit By Carl on 2/21/12
Carl would recommend this product to a friend
This unit has been operating flawlessly in my system for the last year now. It came packaged with enough accessories to install in just about any configuration you would desire and the instructions were well made and easy to use. I opted for this unit mainly because of the built in TDS meter because i wanted to know how efficiently the unit was operating rather than how clean my storage containers are. I would recommend this system to any beginner as it will serve you well for many years to come.

9 years with a reef tank until i finally purchased an ro/di unit. not sure what i was waiting for but when i was pulling out 1" thick pieces of slime out of my tank i was done. one month now with this unit and my jbj auto top-off and cyano and hair algae's are gone. not sure where they went but am definitely happy with the results and would absolutely recommend this to everyone that is fed up with nuisance algae.
Super System. Simple to use and affordable... By Frederick on 2/21/12

I did a lot of reading and comparing before I settled on the BRS 5 Stage Plus system. It quality is excellent and it is a solidly built unit. The instructions are complete and comprehensive. There are many fittings supplied making it easy to hook up temporarily or permanently. It is also supplied with considerable amounts of tubing and that makes it flexible enough to be mounted most anywhere. The TDS and pressure gauge takes the guess work out of the entire process. It comes fully assembled and that's make life easy and usable right out of the box. The pressure gauge indicated that I had more than enough water pressure direct from the house faucet making a booster pump not necessary. I would defiantly recommend the 5 Stage Plus to anyone needing RO/DI water for their system. BRS customer support and online videos makes setup and understanding very very simple. If you need a RO/DI unit this is the one, don’t hesitate to purchase.
It's rare to find a product that impresses me this much By Jacob on 2/16/12

I've had so many bad experiences (with other businesses and stores) that I had to take the time to say how happy I am. This is an incredible RO/DI unit at a reasonable price. The TDS monitor is invaluable, I don't know I lived without it. The fittings are magic. The install was seamless. I needed this unit in a hurry, and my local shop let me down. BRS had their unit at my door before my local shop ever contacted me to tell me they had screwed up my order. I could happily tell them that I didn't need their business. BRS had already taken care of me. Thanks. Extremely satisfied.
Quality, Quality, and Quality. By Gail on 2/16/12

I did a lot of shopping before I settled on this RO/DI system. It screams quality from the moment you unbox it. It is very solidly built. It also comes with good instructions. It is flexible with many ways to hook it up temporarily or permanently. It is supplied with what I consider generous amounts of tubing and that makes it flexible too. The flush valve is so handy. And of course having the TDS and pressure gauge takes the guess work out of the entire process. Except for set up in home, it comes fully assembled and that's another big plus. It is seconds from unboxing to using. With the pressure gauge, I found that I don't have enough water pressure from my household well system and am investing in a booster pump to make the system work efficiently. But that is a plus for this unit, not a minus. It was wrapped and boxed so securely that it arrived it in great condition. I would recommend the 5 Stage Plus to anyone needing RO/DI water for any use, not just the aquarium. Beyond that, the BRS customer support and online videos mean I will be buying my RO/DI supplies from BRS now and in the future.

Great build quality, easy install. Make sure you get a food quality container to keep your water in. Great value, as with everything else from this company. Keep up the good work.

Great Product bad battery By saltysailor2329 on 2/14/12
saltysailor2329 would recommend this product to a friend
Had this guy set up in a manner of 15 or 20 mins and was making water, which made my wife happy because whenever I went to the LFS to get water I would come home with something else. I know for a $200 product this wouldn't happen, but it would be nice to have some sort of indicator light when a filter needs replacing. Only negative I can say is that my batteries were dead in the TDS readout. Oh well.

Save yourself from buying water for $.50-$1.5 per gallon and go for it. These guys thought of everything, every part you could need is included. The filter comes completely assembled and plumbed all you need to do is plug and play.
