WISH I'D BOUGHT THIS WHEN I STARTED OUT By stuffman on 9/18/2014

I am new to reefing, and so when I first filled my tank, I went with the LFS's recommendation of just using tap water and mixing salt. I soon learned the error of my ways when I got my brown algae outbreak.
I started researching and found out I should have used RODI or distilled water. I started using distilled while I researched, but realized that this was going to get expensive. So I ordered BRS's 4 stage value system, along with the separate TDS meter and flush valve (cheaper than integrated TDS system, and I can use TDS other places).
My tap water is in the 450 ppm range on TDS. Water coming out of the BRS system is 4ppm. I now know I'm giving my fish and coral clean water and will be cutting down on my algae problems (which have passed now). I'm anxious to see how long the filters last. I'm making about 10g/week.
5 stars and two thumbs up for BRS's 4-stage RODI system

Why didn't I buy this sooner? Don't go buying jug after jug of distilled water or buckets from your LFS. This unit is perfect. Hooks right up to any sink or hose, easy instructions, and makes 0 tds water that I tested myself! BRS's reputation proved to be true on this (my first purchase). Highly recommended.
Way better than buying water By Amanda on 6/30/2014

This little system is great, although it does not "make" water very fast. I have a 150gal tank and I wish I had bought the larger size RO/DI system that Bulk Reef sells.
What More Could You Ask For By Devin on 6/21/2014

Quality and construction is solid. Went with the 4 stage cause I live in the sticks and don't have to worry about chloramines and things of that nature, just good old fashioned well water. One thing I will note which is no fault of the unit but I do go through about 1 cartridge of DI resin every 50 or so gallons produced.

This unit came well packaged when shipped. I've only been using it about a month. It definitely is well made. The unit is sturdy and is of very good quality. It was super easy to hook up, no problems at all. I'm loving my RODI water!

The unit itself works great, it was damaged in shipping though but BRS sent me a replacement part free of charge. Was a set back but now the unit is working to capacity once more!

Great System, Great Price By Derek on 5/2/2014

I bought this basic RO/DI system but didn't realize I needed to know my water pressure, TDS, or having a flush kit. I feel all those should be necessary additions to a RO/DI system now so I will be buying those soon. Other than that it looks like a great product out of the packaging!

We decided to invest in an ro/di system because of the flouride that will be being added to our water. We emailed bulk reef with a few questions and watched some videos and done some research and found that this is the best product out there for us. We ordered it and it came fairly fast. We have used it and it works great. Thank you Bulk reef for your help and for having such great products.

I got this and already I see a difference in my tank after a couple of days. The unit works great and I don't mind waiting a little bit for some water. Its better than paying for it at my LFS and works great time to get a ATO system for this
It Works By Jim on 4/19/2014

I bought the basic RO/DI system but realized I need to know my water pressure so I bought a pressure gauge and found that my pressure was alright. later I will get a flush kit. Both of these necessary additions. I have both fresh and salt water tanks and it is good to know I wont be introducing any unwanted contaminates to my tanks .Hooking up these is no more difficult than connecting a garden hose.
