Wonderful investment By Eric on 4/18/14

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.

What a set up - when compared to what's on the market, the quality of this product, ease to maintain, knowledge from BRS all make it a must have. Just keep it clean to make sure it's optimal all the time! Great unit.

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.
Great RODI system By Michael F. on 3/18/14
Michael F. would recommend this product to a friend
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.

No more lugging 5 gallon jugs By Mark on 2/11/14
Mark would recommend this product to a friend
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....

I rate this a 4 and not a 5 because it is extremely slow out the box. But on the same note, it's ready to go without buying anything else. The meter is not only cool, but accurate. Good product all around ( minus mentioned problem). Beats going to the lfs or grocery store.

Great RODI By ReefandClimb on 2/5/14
ReefandClimb would recommend this product to a friend
This is my first rodi unit an I'm very happy with it so far. I'm in an apartment, so bein able to use a quick connect and my kitchen sink makes things very easy. Only issue is that if your water pressure is low like mine (about 40psi) you will not make anywhere near 75 gallons a day. I would say about 20-25 is more accurate but unless you're replacing huge volumes daily it shouldn't be a problem.
Five stars because it produces 0 TDS rodi water, was easy to set up, and was a good price.

I took the DI filter off for now and just the RO portion makes 0ppm water. Rerouted the ppm meter to monitor tap water going in and RO water coming out. ~36/0 respectively.The water tasted absolutely incredible, too!!

Very easy to use and the videos helped a lot, made RO water instantly, 0 TDS water made always, just make sure u buy the float switch to have that peace of mind that is going to stop making water when your not there.

Andrew would recommend this product to a friend
This is my 3rd RO unit and I am impressed from the beginning. It is great to have a pressure gauge, dual in-line TDS meter and clear canisters. I can tell exactly what is going on. What is going on is perfectly clean water which my previous (non-BRS) units could not do. This unit is cheaper than the Aquatic Life 4 stage I had and has more features and actually works. Highly recommended and I don't recommend much.
You won't regret it. Super easy set up. Literally 5 minutes to making water.

Everything you need to make your own RO/DI water. It comes with good instructions and all of the fittings and adapters you could need for any setup. The extra items the Plus kit comes with are really worth it. The gauge, flush kit, and TDS meter work to keep the filters cleaner longer and let you know when it's time to replace them. I've recommended this product to personal friends and they also agreed they would buy it again.

This is my first rood unit. First off ill say I was very impressed with the build quality. This is a very stout unit. I have mine setup off a garden hose valve I have plumbed in the cellar. I get about 58lbs of pressure. I would say you get about 5 gallons if waste water per gallon of good water. The bottom of my di unit is starting to collect some brown crap already I'm assuming this is normal. It's just a slow process if I was to do it again I would have bought the 150gpd unit for the quicker speed and reduced waste. I ran a tube to the washing machine to use the waste water to wash my clothes.

I've been lugging buckets of water back and forth from the fish store for too long. I was always a bit skeptical about the quality of water. I finally broke down and bought a BRS RO/DI system. I absolutely love it. It came ready to use and puts out perfect water. I shopped around for units and BRS had the competition beat by a mile. Comes with everything you need and the various fittings they include make install a breeze. Highly recommended!

This is a really well built system, and has everything you need to start production. When I first set it up the fitting connecting the first two canisters was cracked and leaked.

I have about 83 psi according to the pressure gauge and get closer to 100 gal per day out of mine. Did have a little trouble with the saddle drain leaking but it was on a pretty cheap drain pipe so I just sealed it up with some epoxy. Don't believe you can buy a better quality unit than this.

I've had this RO/DI system now for a few months and I dont know why anyone else would even think about buying another system. Except to upgrade it. BRS have gone out of their way to build superior products plus give detailed instructions on every part of what they build. I don't even visit other websites now, because I know where i'll end up.. Thanks BRS!!

RO/DI filters are a must have when doing a reef tank, and this is a great one! The quality and the simplicity aregreat! comes with everything to hook up to any water source you want. I put mine in the bathroom next to the sink and hook it up to faucet. I only make around 5 gallons/week so the filters will last a really long time. The TDS meter is also great to let you know its time to replace your filters!

Louis would recommend this product to a friend
The BRS 5 stage RO/DI system in my opinion is the BEST system out in the market right now. Not only the 5 stage but all there systems are! right out of the box it was all set up and ready to use, just needed to hook the water source and was making water in minutes. This system is also very well build. High quality plastic and aluminum. I actually dropped the DI canister one day when moving the system and it was still working and in great condition. The filter media lasts a very long time and is very high quality. if i could rate this system out of 100 i would give it a 110/100 thats how amazing it is!!
