Very good water production quality By Riley on 8/28/2013
Riley would recommend this product to a friend
Produced water quality is excellent. I went from 450 TDS from the tap to 0 TDS out of the RO/DI system. The production water does have .25ppm ammonia but from what I read this is normal as my tap water is sanitized with chloramines. The only reason I am giving this item 4 stars in lieu of 5 is because it has a small leak between Stage 1 and Stage 2. BRS has sent a replacement coupling to me which should fix the issue.
Well designed System By Novus3 on 8/26/2013

Overall the installation went very well. the system includes adapters for any configuration one could want. The only part that I had to go out and purchase was the adapter from the holding tank auto shut off (float valve) to 1/4" John Guest fitting. No Leaks and system came on line and appears to be working great.

This is my first RO/DI system so I can't compare with others. But it's very easy to setup and comes with all the items you need to produce pure water. Highly recommend.

This came with everything you need to get going. You may want to buy a couple of extra ball valves tees and float switches to set up your reservoir and mixing containers. Very easy to setup.

Just installed my 6 stage unit this week. Truly plug and play unit. Bulk Reef Supply took the time to completely set up the unit prior to shipping and it performs fantastically.

Very pleased with the system.. By pcreefer on 6/8/2013

Easy to setup, and only one simple to fix leak upon attachment to water faucet, once I located it. I merely had to push the line further into the john guest fitting, and viola! FIXED.
Overall I'm hoping this helps with my bubble algae issue, as all of my other parameters are under control, at 0 Nitrate / 0 Phosphate, even while using TAP WATER for over a year. Pretty sure using purigen and my Reef Octopus BH1000 helped here!
This is for a BB 40Breeder reef(clams/favia/softies & 3 fish). I've only done 2- 6 gallon water changes so far since getting the RO/DI, but got my Rubbermaid brute/with dolly yesterday, so I just mounted my float valve last night and made 20gals at 0 tds. (8 going in after R/O- 0 coming out dual DI). Float/shutoff valve works great. Hope these filters last a while.....
Also, THANK YOU KEVIN for ASSURING that I got my reward points after the fact, as I accidentally forgot to sign up for an account until 2 days AFTER I had bought this item(bought it as a website guest originally).
Great deal for a great filter By Robert on 5/30/2013
Robert would recommend this product to a friend
Installation for this was easy. I only had to get a Y splitter for the washing machine hose, a board to bolt this to and a stud finder. I got a 55 gallon barrel and installed this very easily. Nothing leaked, there were no missing parts, and everything is working smooth as pie. Out of the tap, we're looking at 220 ppm, after the RO, I'm seeing 6 ppm, and out of the DI I am seeing 0. I figured out the first 1500 gallons would cost me about 28 cents per gallon and after that it drops to about 9 cents. this compared to 45-60 cents per gallon is an incredible savings. Today I just ordered the 150 gpd water saver upgrade to cut back on waste and increase throughput. I highly recommend requesting this to be installed with your inital order and get it all at once to save shipping costs later. This unit is a lot cheaper than the competators, but it is very nice to use.
BRS Customer Service Awesome By Christopher on 4/26/2013

Thanks to the great customer service at BRS the first one I got had some leaks I called BRS and they shipped another one right out no questions asked. Got it the next day and it has been great ever since.
Great Value - but check fittings By Darcy on 3/6/2013
Darcy would recommend this product to a friend
I searched all over for a complete RO/DI system for city water treated with chloramines. I narrowed my choices down to this unit and a Spectra Pure system. I'm so glad I selected this one as it has been so easy to use and set up. I had been using a 4 stage unit from Costco but have reduced it to serving as a filtration unit for drinking water only. It only would last a couple of months before I had to replace filters due to TDS slowly increasing weekly.
Interestingly, the Costco unit would reduce the TDS of our (TDS 255) tap water to about 4-6 TDS after replacing all the filters and membrane. It would stay there for a few weeks and then creep up to about a TDS of 11 or so before I would replace the required filters. The output of the BRS unit before hitting the DI resin consistently has a TDS of only 2-3 using the same meter and hasn't changed for 4 months. Nice
With the BRS unit installation was simple. The on board TDS meters and clear canisters let you know which media or filters need replacing. This saves so much guess work (and money). The one problem was that several of the fittings needed tightening and the unit leaked from them when first installed. I had read from several reviews that leaks can occasionally can be a problem with these. I'm a big fan of not fixing what isn't broken so I initially installed it for easy removal in the event of issues. Sure enough, mine leaked from a few inaccessible fittings. I had to remove and disassemble the unit to tighten them to get at the trouble makers. I was initially disappointed but it only took about 15 minutes for the whole process so it's really no big deal.
All in all this would be a five star purchase if not for the minor annoyance of doing a fiddling with it a bit. If I had to do it over again I'd still buy this unit.
Love this system! By Troy on 2/21/2013
Troy would recommend this product to a friend
I received this system 2 days ago and couldn't be happier. It's running at 3 to 1 (waste to product, which might increase with time ) at 50 psi. I haven't checked the tds coming in to the system yet, but I worked for the local water company and it runs about 200 tds. Going in the di unit is around 5-7, coming out is 0. The construction of the system is very durable and with the 2 stage o-ring on every connection assures a leak proof system!! IMO, you can't go wrong with this system!!!!

Just got my unit last night. (Valentines day and wife was not happy).
Couldn't resist setting it up and it litteraly took longer to unbox everything than it did to hook it up.
TDS going into the first stage was around 900. Zero after coming out of the last DI canister. Going into the first DI canister was fairly consistent at around 10-12.
Super Happy with this and will only buy from BRS due to their AWESOME customer service!!!!!!
6 stage deluxe chlorimine RO/DI unit By Tony on 2/10/2013

This is great unit would recommend to anyone looking I buy. This would have have 5 stars from me BUT my only complaint is the monitor is held on by Velcro. And it falls off all the time this piece should have a slot or hole in the back for mounting to the wall. Thanks BRS for good units.

Very happy with the product and more so with BRS customer support. The RO/DI had a small leak when I first installed it. I called BRS customer support and they gave me the option of sending me a replacement part or sending me a new unit. The new unit came in within a few days and no problems whatsoever since then. Great value.

My city just switched to chloramines and now basically the whole reef club owns one of these systems. I could smell the ammonia in my holding tank and my test kit showed ammonia the water coming out of my RO. This unit solved both issues completely. build quality is also on a different level form the one my LFS sold me years ago.
Nice attention to detail, but... By Evan on 10/19/2012
Evan wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I love the attention to detail that went into this system. It has a flush for both the membrane and catalytic carbon stage. The pressure gauge, TDS meter and volumizer are connected and configured just right. The instructions are great, too, well written and telling you exactly what you need to know.
But holy leaky leakstorm, Batman!
I'm glad I set it up in my concrete basement over the drain first. All three elbow connectors on the main unit were leaky. I've managed to fix one and almost fix another by just tightening them, but the third is positioned such that I'll need to take a canister off the mounting bracket. I'm still not sure whether I can fix it or will just need to send it back.
Too bad...there's so much to like!

I'VE HAD THIS UNIT FOR SOME TIME NOW AND IT TOTALLY OUT PERFORMS MY PREVIOUS RO/DI. IT COMES WITH MORE THAN ENOUGH FEATURES TO KEEP YOUR WATER CLEAN AND A FLOAT VALVE TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL OVERFLOWS.
