WISH I'D BOUGHT THIS WHEN I STARTED OUT By stuffman on 9/18/2014
stuffman would recommend this product to a friend
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
Devin would recommend this product to a friend
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!

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.

This product is easy to install and really cleans your water, even when our DI resin was ready to be changes, we still had 0 tds. I would recommend this to anyone that would like good clean water for your tank.
Get the Plus Model By Adam on 2/21/2014
Adam would recommend this product to a friend
I'm so happy I went with the plus model. The TDS and the pressure gauge take the guess work out of filter changes and pressure problems.
I had low pressure from the start but I wouldn't have known that without the plus model. I ended up contacting my city and they sent someone out to bump up our pressure.
Great Value and Ease of Use By Jordan on 2/21/2014
Jordan would recommend this product to a friend
This was one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, RO/DI systems I could fine. With this system, it will definitely pay for itself very quickly and will save you plenty of trips to the store if you don't have an RO/DI system already. The setup instructions are very easy to setup. Plus if you don't have a designated area to permanently place the system, it is very easy to screw into a kitchen or bathroom sink, fill up your containers, then unscrew and put away.

I recently purchased an ro/di unit off of fleebay and had to return it the next day due to leaking out of every place possible. Decided to pay the extra $30 for this unit and it is by far leaps and bounds a superior product. The quality is second to none and had me pumping out 0ppm water within 30 minutes. Awesome

I purchased my BRS RODI unit about 8 months ago and I just ordered my first replacement media. Its a fantastic product that is well built and has held up very well. Its simple to change the media inside the canisters. The only beef I had about the product was the faucet attachment, its not really BRS fault but my faucet accepted a female thread and this had a male so I had to buy a 5 dollar adapter. The money you save and time fighting nuisance algae and impurities in your system makes up for the low price cost of this unit in no time!

A very nice solid unit. I missed out on the black Friday door buster plus addition, but ordered this one for $110 and had enough left over for the DIY pressure gauge and flush kit. This is very well built with a metal holder rather than the cheap plastic spectra pure brand. 5 stars BRS!!!

As many others have stated, this unit was pumping out 0 TDS water (measured using the HM Digital TDS-4) about 25 minutes after hooking it up.
The flow rate is spot on at my native water pressure. A 5 gallon bucket takes about 90 minutes to fill.

This RODI works great! It supply's 0 TDS water just as it's supposed to. I wish it had come with a few sink adapters. If you cannot permanent mount, your options are the garden hose, and if your lucky the sink adapter will fit. Mine did not and I had to purchase extra pieces.

I purchased this unit to keep from running to the LFS all the time for water when I upgraded from a Biobuce to a 90gallon tank. When it came in I had it mounted on the wall making water within 10 min. Great product and has saved me tons of time. The pressure meter would have been nice that the Value Plus comes and I would say is worth the extra I just had a limited amount to spend. Great product, great price and works great too! Thanks BRS!

Makes great RO/DI water. fish are instantly more happy and even great for making coffee and tea. Made 30 gallons on Day one and the machine ran great. Here's a tip: the unit comes with the sink adapter, the adapter has a female end (so your sink has to have male threads) if your sink has female threads (like mine) you will need to hit up ACE Hardware and get an adapter, cost $3. After that it was smooth sailing.

Great Buy, Easy setup, Fast RODI Production By Nick on 7/17/2013
Nick would recommend this product to a friend
I don't know where to start with my review. Everything about this purchase was great! I received top notch service when I had a question regarding the auto shut off on the unit, I was easily able to fill a 32 gallon brute with fresh rodi within a work day (8 hours), and this unit made my water change routine in my 120 gallon much, much easier. No more running to water store to fill buckets. One thing I would recommend is to also order shut off float valves when ordering the unit so you can fill large bins such as a brute container and not worry about it overflowing. I got a brute and its stand from Home Depot, and use the rodi to fill it, mix salt, then I roll it to the tank and do a water change. Easiest thing ever

This RO/DI unit is outstanding! It seriously is built like a tank and for the price you can't beat it. All I had to do was attach my TDS meter from my old system and run it.
