I purchased this unit in October 2011 and have enjoyed the benefits so far. It comes with almost everything you need in the box. I had to go to Lowes to get a few different connections but everything is compatible. I extended the D I out put line to 35 ft and put a shut off in line so I can just put it in the tank and turn it on for top off water. Very good value and the water from the tap/tank actually tastes great. I have it connected to my fridge as well for the ice maker. Very helpful on the phone as well.

I installed this about 6 months ago, and it was a bit intimidating installing it. But my reef is all the better for it, and I don't have to lug jugs of water to the water store any more. When I got my order, BRS sent the wrong part, but they quickly sent out a replacement. So no harm no foul there. Finally, just a word of warning, that the water dispenser head that comes with the system has an air stop valve in it that is required by CA code. It works well, but by its nature very loud.
The water produced taste great too!
Great unit at a great price. By Ben on 6/25/11

Easy to install, can now drink the water at my house, and the tank likes it to. Only thing I would reccomend is if you think you have low water pressure order the boster pump from the get go so you dont have to wait another week to get the system running.

Have been wanting to set up an RO/DI system that would supply us with drinking water at the sink as well as bulk storage for my reef. This system was super easy to install, works like a champ and produces sparkling clear, great tasting drinking water as well as 0ppm TDS water for my reef which means no more lugging plastic jugs to the local store for drinking water and no more weekly trips to my local reef specialist for my tank water.
The installation videos made everything a breeze. Great job, BRS!

I have been using this system for 6 months now and couldn't be happier with its performance. Great product for a small price.
RO for all your water needs By James on 3/18/11

I was looking into a RO drinking water system last year before I ever thought about setting up my own saltwater aquarium. i passed on the idea, then, because of cost. In January (2011) I decided to setup my first saltwater tank and quickly learned about the benefits of using RO/DI water in your system. Now I could have purchased water from my LFS ($$$) but I calculated the RO/DI system would pay for itself in 8 months verses buying my water (worst case scenario). My calculation didn't include gasoline usage to drive to the LFS nor the price for all the containers I would need to transport it to and from locations.
Installation was straight forward thanks to the video Bulk Reef Supply produced. In my case, I couldn't fit everything under my kitchen sink. Since there was more than enough tubing included in the kit, I was able to relocated my 3 gallon storage tank into the "dead space" between my angled cabinets.
The only issue I had with my order was the saddle valve shipped with my system. I received a valve for 1/4" tubing instead of the 3/8" necessary for connecting your waste line. They guys promptly sent out the correct size and I received it the following business day. Since I had already drilled the waste water hole, I simply covered it with some duct tape and waited until the part arrived to complete the install.

Picked this system up last year after I got tired of getting RODI water from my local shop every friday. After checking several places I finally decided on buying it from BRS due to the price for what you get.
The 75gpd member is supposed to have the best rejection rate so you don't flush as much water down the drain. Everything is fairly easy to setup and the storage tank actually fit under my small cabinet. I have the tank feeding into my fridge for water and ice.
The system came with everything needed to get the system up and running, the only other thing you might need is a way to hook it up to the fridge. If you have a 1/4" thread on the fridge you need to get 1/4" female threaded to 1/4 push connect adapter and a 3-way T.
Aside from that you may want to get a pressure gauge to find out if you need a booster pump. These operate at their rating under certain conditions such as temperature and feed pressure. You need at least 50 PSI but I believe to get the rated output you need 65 PSI. If you do need a booster pump be sure you grab an aquatek, they are made in the US and they actually last.

At first, I received a unit that had a cracked nipple, and had a bit of a problem. Reed was great in handling the issue, and made it right by getting me 2 replacement canisters for a quick and solid fix leaving no possibility of compromise with the system integrity and replacing the canisters, and not just the nipples. They shipped it overnight in order to make sure I could start using this now perfect RO/DI system. I have moderate water pressure, so I think I may need a booster pump.. So i think I'll buy one here, and go from customer to client. Thanks for standing behind your product, your company, and your customers! Thanks again Reed and Bulkreefsupply

I've the 5stage Plus + drinking system.
EASY to install-FAST shipping-GREAT tech support. Every component was already hooked up-just had to make the install and drain connections. I've never done any "plumbing" b/4. Instruction videos are great - water tastes fantastic. Recommend.
Excellent Product - For Fish and for Home! By Rob on 1/10/11

I have been using the 5-stage RO/DI system with the drinking water kit for 9 months now and I am extremely impressed.
The quality of the equipment seemed very solid out of the box and it has proved to live up to the initial impression. I am using this for water for my reef system as well as for drinking water supply to a refrigerator and to a wet bar. Had to make sure the fish didn’t get better water than the family!
Although my city water isn’t horrible out of the faucet (~275 TDS on average), I was still amazed to see water coming out of the RO membrane at 2-3. I have to credit this to the multiple sediment filters and carbon blocks prior to the membrane. Even 9 months later, still getting 5-6 out of the RO and haven’t had to change the DI resin yet!
The instructions on how to install are very clear and the service on the phone when I had any questions during set up was excellent (as service always is at BRS).
The price for the set up was reasonable up front, and when I count in the fact that it works so well, thus I don’t burn through a lot of filter media or DI resin, this has been an excellent purchase from the financial perspective.
