Could be happier - very high quality system By NateDogg on 2/22/13

I am very happy to have chosen this system over the others I looked at. Upon first opening the box, I was amazed at the care that goes into packaging the system. As I removed the bubble wrap, I was further amazed at the quality of the system components, and assembly. I had the system mounted to the wall, hooked up to my utility sink and making 0 TDS water in about an hour. No more trips to the LFS! I too discovered I have lower than desired water pressure, so I will promptly order the booster pump to ensure I get the most out of the system. I'm currently filling my 5 gallon water jugs, but forsee adding a large container and auto shut off valve to make it even more convenient.
You really can't go wrong with this one!
Easy to setup and use. By Kevin on 2/19/13

The device is built with quality parts that are durable (thick parts, i don't think they will break easily). It is very easy to setup. My only regret is the device didn't include a float valve. It included an automatic shutoff valve. In my opinion they could have raise the price by 5 bucks and included a float valve or at least made it an option.
Fantastic By Armando on 2/12/13

Upgraded from a ro/di system I bought on ebay. What a difference the quality and construction it's top notch. Great value for the system. Love the clear canisters so I can see the filters working. The included dual tds is fantastic. Great for reassurance that the system is working properly. Thanks BRS.

Just installed this system and it was a piece of cake. The directions were easy to follow. It also came with plenty of hardware and fittings for numerous different installment methods. A+ grade
No Complaints By JOSEPH on 2/6/13

Have been using this unit just about a year, and it has performed perfectly. Float valve is a must - had my resevoir set up on second floor with no float, forgot to turn it off, came home to a basement with a good amount of water in it. Since installing the float, I have left the unit on for days with no overflow surprises. I recommend purchasing extra sediment filters along with the filter replacement kit, my city water dirties this stage very quickly, and they are cheap to replace. Water quality has been great!
Awesome Product By Jeremy on 2/2/13

Knowing that the tds meter is there its easy to check with out any extra parts or things to test for.
Good system, slow when the water gets cold By Jerry on 1/24/13
Jerry would recommend this product to a friend
I have been using this system for about 9 months, works great, but had to upgrade to 150 gallon add on because my water pressure was lower in the cold weather. 0 TDS all day long.

My first RO/DI system and couldn't be happier. Everything worked great right out of the box, not problems at all. Will definitely purchase from BRS again!
An investment worth having made By Steve on 1/22/13

This is definitely a best buy in comparrison with the units being offered by my LFS. The unit arrived so well packaged I knew it would not be possible to mess anything up. It setup very easily, however, if you are on the fence as to whether or not to buy the plus model I really have to encourage the upgrade. Having the pressure gauge has saved me some on my water bill as well as the peace of mind provided by the TDS meter.
Some things I wish I had done with the original order though was adding the float valves for my reservoirs (I almost floaded a section of my garage had it not been for an impromptu need to take the trash out). Also some additional cabling would have been nice to get initially.

Best Around and Easy By Joseph on 12/28/12
Joseph would recommend this product to a friend
After alot of research, I'm very happy with this unit. Its much less then other units in price range but offers higher quality, and one stop shopping from web site for DI media and filters. Packed to withstand a explosion and thick plastic canisters so no need to worry about cracking them with supplied wrench. One thing I would add to package is a top off float valve.

very nice RO system By 241wrasse on 12/22/12

5-stage plus system running for >2 years now, thought I'd share. Solid construction, love the built-in pressure guage, & TDS meter to quickly confirm when it's time to change filters & DI resin. Even better with the color-changing DI resin. Input water is nasty where I'm at: ~334ppm TDS, but water going into final DI stage shows maybe 8ppm (resin a few months old), still 0ppm output RO water. Output TDS meter results confirmed with calibrated, good handheld TDS meter. Easy maintenance, very pleased.
PLUS PLUS PLUS By Eazy Feezy on 12/19/12
Eazy Feezy would recommend this product to a friend
Great system, works well 6 months into making my own water. Only thing I would do over is go bigger. I burn nearly 3 gallons of water a day and this is plenty capable, however I'm only able to run 47 PSI to the system and this will burn up the DI Resin. Wasn't sure on pressures when I bought this and will most likely in the future add on the extra R.O. Membrane for production purposes, as well as a larger D.I. unit, and a pump for fine tuning.
The lines also condensate pretty heavily at times checked for leaks but couldn't find any. Don't know how people let them run under there sink inside the house continuously.
Check out my VLOG if you have any questions or tips on set-up.

This is my 2nd RO system. This replaced one I picked up on eBay 5years ago. That one was nice but this one is great. I shopped for a replacement for months. Could not find one with all the features of this product in the same price range. It is also easy to use and maintain. Great product!
TOO EASY By Steven on 12/4/12

Have you ever heard of plug and play. That's exactly what this thing is. I have mine setup in the garage and you couldn't ask for anything easier to setup. Had it going in a few minutes. Produces water with no impurities, now I know I'm putting the best water I can in my tank. Love it!!!!
Excellent RO/DI System By Nick on 12/4/12
Nick would recommend this product to a friend
Like most others, I did a ton of research on RO/DI systems before my purchase, and went with the BRS 5-Stage Plus over a number of similar systems from other companies. Even before the Black Friday discounts, the pricing couldn't be beat, and it comes with everything that you could possibly need to run this in a number of configurations (hose/utility sink adapter, drain clamp, etc.). Top notch stuff from BRS, and my RO water reads a whopping 0 TDS afterwards.
QUALITY ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT MOST WILL EVEN NOTICE By Kevin on 12/2/12

This was an easy 5 star rating. BRS hand picked some of the best components to create a great package.
+They've included EVERY adapter you may need, instead of trying to cut costs with just one or two of the most common fittings.
+TDS meter easy to use and battery already installed.
+Easy to setup with color coded hoses.
+Maintains constant 0 TDS output
Really good By Aron on 11/29/12
Aron would recommend this product to a friend
I did a TON of research and ended up buying this product mostly because I've been satisfied with other BRS products and their customer support is very good.
I installed this unit in the basement next to my sink in the laundry in about 10 minutes and it was up and running giving me a 0 TDS reading in 11 minutes total.
It comes with a kit that let's you choose how you want to connect it to your water line that makes it really easy and quick to install. It's been running smoothly since the installation and had no problems with it. I like the built in TDS meter that tells me how my filter is doing and whether I need to replace it or not.

Great Product... Wish i wouldnt have waited so long By Greg on 11/19/12
Greg would recommend this product to a friend
This RO/DI system is great! It was really easy to install and what i really like about it is that it came with everything you need to hook up and start using it right away! Most other systems u don't get all the connections and the auto shut off and all. Its also very convenient to have the T.D.S meter built in...
It makes life alot easier... not to mention it saves u from going to the LFS multiple times a week to get salt water and top off water! Now i can do it at home and save money doing so! I would have saved hundreds of dollars if i would have gotten this thing sooner...
If you are new to the hobby, do yourself the favor and get your self a RO/DI unit... Bulk reef makes great stuff and has some of the best prices!

I installed this in my laundry room and it's working like a champ. I appreciate having the built in pressure guage and TDS meter. Great instructions and various installation supplies included to get it up and running in no time. Great price as well!
