I have been running this 6 stage unit for 60 days now and I can't say enough good things about it. As with everything I buy from BRS it seems to be a top quality product. But more importantly, BRS stands behind all that I buy and are wonderful to deal with.
Great setup! By Eric W on 9/13/2012

If you have the money to get this setup, do it. For the amount of money you have invested (or about to invest) in your tank, start with the best water you can get. I am getting 0 TDS out of the DI canisters.
Install time took just minutes. All of the connections are extremely high quality and well worth the money you spend on the setup. The drain saddle clamp is awesome, I have my setup next to my water heater and well pressure tank, with the drain hooked up to one of my bathroom drain standpipes. The only concern I have is with backflow of the drain water into the waste line - I'll be ordering a check valve from BRS to alleviate that concern!
The connections provided with the kits are perfect, any situation you can think of for hooking up is provided for. No hunting down parts at the local hardware store!
The filter minder and upgraded TDS meter, as well as the flush kit and oil filled gauge- all top notch. Let's face it, as reefers we tend to upgrade things all the time and regret buying the lower end products (I for one have a box of things I've upgraded). Just go for the deluxe setup and go for all the high end stuff now!
Great Product By VAL on 9/7/2012

what I like about this filter is that it is ready to go out of the box with all the connections already made, perfect water quality. zero TDS coming out everytime. well made filter with quality filters.
Worth every penny By Chris on 8/28/2012

Have had this system going now for about 5 months and I am very pleased with the value and performance this has given so far. Hassle free installation took less than an hour. I do reccomend the 150 GPD upgrade for those with larger tanks who will be changing a larger water volume on a regular basis. The built in TDS meter is very useful in knowing exactly when you should change the resin out. I highly reccomend this RODI unit to any serious marine aquarium hobbyist.
6 stages for the price of 5!!! By jeremy on 8/27/2012
jeremy would recommend this product to a friend
I have used a 5 stage system before and thought it was a great system, then I found the BRS 6 stage deluxe system. This thing is great, absolutely zero TDS coming out. On my old system the TDS started creeping up after a few months of use. I am on well water so the water pressure is a bit of a problem but it still will fill up a 5 gal. Bucket in about an hour on a good day, a little longer when the pressure is down. I also got the add on drinking water system which the wife loves ( we all know how important it is to keep the wife happy) Filtered drinking water on demand is awesome...now all I need is a booster pump to reach the full potential of this filter.
Excellent System / One Suggestion By Will M on 8/12/2012
Will M would recommend this product to a friend
I love the quality of water, but one of the features I don't really use. Instead of the filter monitor, I'd prefer another dual TDS on the RO unit since that helps me know when it's time to change the media better than the volume of water produced. I love 0 TDS water and my tank has never looked better. Great product :)
Nice features By Bob on 8/6/2012

I bought a RO/DI unit from a lfs, but returned it because it cost more and had less features. The float valve is great, I don't have worry about water overflowing. This system comes with everything you need. This is a high quality unit and a great value.
Excellent quality of water By Donna on 7/31/2012

Excellent quality system and easy to install. Occasionally I test the water and it comes up with no nitrates every time. It is so much easier do to my water changes now.
Well made and works well! By Jorge on 7/12/2012
Jorge would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this system because I knew that I would need to have a nice reservoir of fresh RO/DI water ready for my marine tank and driving back and forth from the LFS for water just didn't seem like a good idea.
I got the unit in a nicely packaged box from BRS and I could tell right away that it was a quality product. The materials used to make this system are top notch and it was incredibly easy to setup. I followed the instructions and was creating RO/DI water in no time. I wanted a more “automated” solution, so I decided to make a direct and permanent connection to my house’s water supply. BRS also has videos available to show you how to do that and it was pretty easy to do.
I now have a self-filling (with float valve) RO/DI system that I am very pleased with and makes the tasks of topping off my tank or mixing salt water a breeze.
Superior RO/DI System By Joshua on 7/11/2012

The attention to detail with this RO/DI system is outstanding. BRS uses high quality parts to build these systems. Everything is put together for you. Only thing you have to do is unpackage it, and install the source, drain and product water lines. EASY!
Great fit/finish. By Lucas on 6/26/2012

This is an excellent system that includes a lot of the small parts and pieces that you don't think of ahead of time, but end up running to Home Depot to buy last minute. This system illustrates how much forethought and purpose-specific insight goes into BRS' products: they truly tailor their products to the conscientious reefer.
While the 5 stage might be a better price, this system includes things that you'll probably end up purchasing for the 5 stage system anyways, and because of that, it's probably worth it to purchase this unit instead and have all the things you need from the get-go. Definitely recommended.
A+ minus the fancy TDS meter. By mike on 6/9/2012
mike would recommend this product to a friend
This is the system that I have. The velcro really does fall off, but itsokay just get some different type of velcro. The TDS meter is secured in a bracket and it is pretty nice. Mine however does not work anymore, I just purchased the RO/DI system a few months ago. I have emailed BRS, no answer? Maybe I need to email again? Other than that nice product. Very easy to set up.
Easy to install and works great By Benjamin on 6/6/2012

I was able to install this in less than an hour including mounting some plywood to the wall and installing a Y connector on my washing machine cold water faucet. Once installed I had water coming out in about 5 minutes.

Good to the last Drop By 150EH on 5/25/2012

This is a great system with all the bells and whistles you'll need to get up and running quickly, plus you get perfect water with zero TDS. For years my FW planted tank was problematic while other tanks looked so nice but after my first 40% water change the water was crystal clear and my sediment problems gone, don't wait because you do need one dispite what others might tell you.
This Is where to get a RO/DI system!!!! By Lorenzo on 5/3/2012
Lorenzo would recommend this product to a friend
I looked everywhere else and this system is the best value for the money. Everything needed for the install was included in the kit. The filter replacements are the best and can be found everywhere, but again Bulk Reef Supply has the best pricing on them too. My results were 3 gallons waste water for every gallon RO/DI produced at 70psi and 75 deg. Easy install, lots of extras with this package. Thanks

I had this entire system mounted to the wall and running in about an hour. The instructions are clear. I would go ahead and buy a 6-stage refil kit at the same time.

No issues at all. Built very well and simple to install. Paired up with the float valve gives you all the worry free RO you will need

I am using this system heavily, and it performs exactly as advertised. It was fairly simple to set up, and fits well under my sink.

I wish I found BRS sooner... By Danny on 3/14/2012
Danny would recommend this product to a friend
When I started the hobby I didn't know about BRS. I also didn't research ro/di as much as I should have. Here's my story...
I purchased a Watts premier ro-pure model as my first ro unit. While the system may be good enough for drinking water I don't feel as though it's good enough for aquarium water.
As my tank aged the parameters slowly built up and before you knew it I had an explosion of algae issues. Not just the expected algae bloom in my tanks infancy. I then started researching more and more. Trying to find the cause.
I came across BRS and not only saw that I was over charged for the watts premier that I bought, but I had been paying through the nose for filter cartridges.
Upon receiving this unit I hooked it up to a water station. Two brute trashcans. One for ro/di top off and the other for saltwater.
Since using this unit the algae issues are starting to subside. I would strongly recommend using these quality units. I only wish I would have found BRS sooner.
The amount of fittings and everything included makes this a steal.
Only 2 minor complaints.
1. The item description wasn't clear. I assumed the float valve was the deluxe (adjustable) model. I needed two for my setup so i had to buy an extra one. I bought the adjustable but this one comes with the standard float valve.
2. The filter monitor Velcro fell off 2 days after I installed the unit. No biggie, but a pain none the less.
