I started my tank using tap water because i didn't want to buy water from the LFS. I soon realized that RO/DI is the way to go. This unit is easy to set up and use.

I bought this unit about 8 months ago but wasn't ready to fill my tank until about 5 months ago. It came with everything I needed and has worked great from then until now with light use (I'd be surprised if more than 1000 gallons have entered it). It has always read 0 tds at the output both with the included tester and another tester I've got.
Over time I've been less happy with how much water goes down the drain and I've been thinking of how to reduce it or use it. I considered the 150 GPD upgrade, and decided to buy it (hasn't arrived yet), and then for the first time actually measured the output ratio so I'd be able to get a before/after. And:
At 49.5 PSI on the gauge before the membrane, with 24.1C/75.4F water, about 2.6 gallons are wasted for every 1.0 produced. As far as I know, that's a really good ratio for an RO unit, especially with my water pressure.
I am still looking forward to installing the upgrade kit, though, to boost production rate and waste even less water.
One bad thing - and it's not the product's fault - is that I just got my city's water report in the mail today and discovered the "Highest Level Detected" of "Chloramines (as Chlorine)" was 2.6 ppm. So now it looks like I should have bought the chloramine unit instead. I think I can convert this unit though by buying substitute cartridges for about $40.
I have 2 clowns, a coral beauty, a flameback, 4 blue/red-leg hermit crabs, and 2 snails (Trochus I think) that have all lived for a few months so maybe the chloramines are somehow being filtered out by this unit, my livestock is particularly hardy, or I'm just lucky. Maybe the water report was a lie. I may convert my unit anyways just to be sure.

I looked at buying a ro/di unit for awhile and BRS has the best deal of them all. It came complete and ready to use. No extra fittings to buy and the several different options to hook it up. These guys are great
Excellent! By M on 6/29/12

The unit arrived very well packed and completely assembled. The only thing that needed to be installed was the R/O tubing which literally snapped into place and the mounting of the unit itself to the wall, which is optional. I ordered an additional 30' of 1/4 R/O tubing so I could run the DI output directly from the laundry room where it's mounted to my ATO resevoir. I have been buying distilled water for top-off, so this unit will pay for itself in a matter of a few months and the filters and membrane won't need to be replaced for likely a couple of years since I'm only using the unit for top-off. It's also rather nice not having to lug 10 gallons of distilled water in the house every week pouring them in the ATO one by one trying not to spill...great product, great price, great quality.

Even for a "non-plummer", this system is extremely easy to use and produces perfect RO/DI water. Save yourself the hassle of running to the store for water, buy this unit. With all the included connections, its easy to find one that will work in your home. It is worth buying the accessory faucet connections... if you don't purchase it now, you may find you need it like I did!
Amazing By Michael on 6/20/12

I'm not going to lie, I had no idea what RO/DI was when any of my LFS's kept telling me about it. After doing the research I knew it was something I wanted in my home.
100% WELL WORTH THE MONEY! When you factor in cost of gas (to and from the fish store), cost per gallon (depending on size of tank), and the fact that you go to the fish store every time you run the possibility of leaving with something you didn't intend to (quite common), you save yourself a FORTUNE.
Plus, to top everything off, I now use this for my drinking water, cooking water, etc. Definitely a well worth investment in my personal opinion.

This is a great system. Very professional service, great packing and shipping, and great product. Very easy to set up, run for a hour to clear debris, and ready to roll. This cannot be beat at this price.

Worth the investment! The only thing I didn't like was the fact that it came with a ASOV but no float valve.... BRS why you do this to me?
