Well made and works well! By Jorge on 7/12/12
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 7/11/12

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 6/26/12

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 6/10/12

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.

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.

Very nice RO/DI filter. BRS again sets the standard. Very well made filter.
Good to the last Drop By 150EH on 5/25/12

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 5/3/12
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.

very durable! been using this system for more than a year now, the meters tells you how well the filtered water is, I might even get a bigger unit for my new tank setup!

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 3/14/12
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.

everything you need to have pure 0 tds water By Aaron on 3/8/12

I bought this unit after my old RO/DI failed when i changed a filter. (the plastic canister blew apart) It is very nice to know exactly what filters are being used in your unit and have easy access to order more. I went with bulkreefsupply because they build quality units in house and every unit turns out with 5 star quality.

This unit is the best, it has all the perks and is very inexpensive. I added an extra membrane, both 150gpd membranes with flow restrictor and a booster pump.

The Deluxe unit comes with very easy to follow directions. I added a 150gallon upgrade to mine and it came pre-installed. All I had to do was add the supply and connect to the drain and I was making RO in no time. I have since plumbed the water to all my tanks and a reserve as well as a salt mixing station. I plan to purchase the Drinking water upgrade in the future.

High Quality, Easy to Install By Vlad on 2/21/12

I previously had a name-brand RO system, but started shopping around after having some silicate problems. Since I've been using this system, I've had no problems. Water quality is great, it produces much more water than my old system, and it's consistently at 0 TDI. The included meter and filter change reminders are great.
With the previous system, setting it up involved soaking the RO membrane, and letting the system run for ~12 hours. This came preassembled, and ready to go.
