Super System. Simple to use and affordable... By Frederick on 2/21/12
Frederick would recommend this product to a friend
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.

I am totally amazed when i open my box and found out how sturdy the parts are. Seeing online and in person totally gave me more excitment. Parts came ready to use. And knowing that BRS is in my neck of the woods in Minnesota is worth the support. Thanks BRS. You have a customer for life. ^_^

Great Product bad battery By saltysailor2329 on 2/14/12

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.

Took me 15 min to hook up to my cold water line. Works good and no issues. I have a 125 gallon tank and this is the perfect fit for me.

Im a internet shopper, so ive seen it all. Horrible shipping and great shipping. This by far is excellent shipping. Bulk reef took the time to professionally package my RO/DI system by individually wrapping each part. The box was very sturdy and taped well. Great job guys.

I was looking around for a good RO/DI unit that didn't cost as much as competitors. Quick check on some local forums and a few minutes later I was on BRS. People are happy with this product so people like to let others know! It's that good. Quick and easy to setup. Well put together. Packaging was excellent and the instructions are even printed in colour! It's producing great water for my tank and I'm recommending it to anyone.

Just unpacked it today and was happy to see it was almost fully assembled -- just had to push blue outlet tube from RO/Pre filters into RO filter and attach faucet connection, and I was in business. Before and after TDS meter is great. Gives you peace of mind knowing that the output is 0 TDS. It comes with auto shut off valve already installed and I'll be using that feature once the float valve arrives. Couldn't be happier with product.

This setup is awesome. For the price u cant go wrong at all. Just the extra parts they give you for connections are worth a good penny elsewhere. Awesome product

Lots of waste water By ROY on 1/29/12
ROY wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I'm only getting about 35 gallons per day, and wasting about 200-300 gallons. Not very efficient... And I'm directly hooked to the garden hose at 38psi... I guess you need to buy the additional upgrade, and ask the city to crank up your water pressure...However, I am getting 0.0 TDS
Great RODI Unit! By JOEL on 1/29/12
JOEL would recommend this product to a friend
After a ton of research on which RODI unit to purchase, BRS 5 Stage seemed to be the most popular in the industry. I have no complaints at all on the unit and BRS has a wide array of add-ons and they have made it easy to replace filters from their site.

Excellent Quality By Katrina on 1/25/12

I'm a total noob to this hobby, but after doing research and watching BRSTV I came to the conclusion that an RO/DI system was a must. I decided on the 5 stage plus because of all the extras you get, the connectors, the pressure gauge and the TDS meter. The setup is really as easy as they show you in the videos, the only thing that I will say is, if you’re planning on attaching it to your faucet check and see what kind of threading yours has. If you watch the video their faucet example has the threaded male end on the actual faucet, mine didn’t. Thus I did a few plan changes and hooked it up to my wash machine’s connection. I plan on getting a garden hose splitter and using that for a permanent connection, we’ll see if it works :) But all in all, great product!
