Our 15 year old drinking water RO system from Sears burst about 3 months after I purchased the 4 stage RO/DI from BRS for my fish tanks. Decided to use the 4 stage at our shop and purchase this system with the holding tank for drinking water after looking at Lowes and HDepot. Nothing they had compared to this unit for ease of use, availability of replacement components and water quality.
Installed the whole unit minus the DI canister under kitchen sink. Ran line to DI unit in basement for fish tanks. Watched video to confirm installation. Easy hook up. Directions a little confusing for extra tap- look VERY closely at the picture and watch the video. Water filling the drinking water tank and when running DI water for fish tanks is a little noisey but a good reminder your water is running if you don't have a ATO. :) TDS Meter on DI unit is so worth the xtra few bucks. Changing filters is a breeze, color changing media makes it rediculously easy. Best tasting water that doesn't run through DI. Wish I knew about BRS years ago, only place to find fittings and the most affordable RO/DI system on the market. Highly recommended.
Great Buy. By Chase on 9/11/12

I've had the system in for about 3 months now and couldn't be happier. Was a breeze to install. All the brackets and canisters are sturdy and solidly built. Came with more hose than I would ever need and the connections make things easy to take apart if you make a mistake or need to redo some routing under the sink.
My water is at 90 psi (I know it's high) but no leaks. I would recommend the 150 gal upgrade. Puts out 3 tds water out of the RO filter for drinking and cooking, down from around 360 tds out of the tap.
The water did have a rubber taste for a few days from the bladder in the storage tank, which was expected and did go away after the tank was broken in. The faucet can be a bit loud when the system is making water, but it lets me know that the system is making water. It has been well worth the price and BRS support is top notch.

This system is well thought out to say the least. I had the online video playing on my laptop while I installed the system and I only had to pause it a few times to keep up with the pace of the video. The faucet is a bit noisy when the system is circulating, but that is the ONLY concern I could think of. Great product, worth every cent!

compared other brand of RO/DI, this buy far is the best value. in used for about six months still 0 tds. 92 gal 20% water change every two weeks in addition to regular house hold use. recomend the 150gal upgrade. fairly easy install, just make sure you have the correct drill bit to create hole in sink.
Very easy install and great results for water taste By Andrew on 7/24/12

I bought this for two reason. Before I got back into the hobby I was considering buying a standalone RO system for drinking water. We consume a large amount of bottled water in our house due to the taste of our tap water. I have unsuccessfully tried to get everyone to use the Pur filter. It just didn't cut it. With this system the water taste was completely addressed. I'm now proud to report we all buy stopped buying bottled water.
For the full RO/DI part I'm also happy to report that I see zero TDS water being made. I don't know what my supply is though. The RO is supplying 9-15PPM to the DI unit.
All in all very pleased and looking forward to years of great clean drinking water and a tank with happy fish and inverts.

This thing I have in the kitchen. Works great for keeping the tanks full of clean 0 TDS water. And on a + note it keeps the wife happy with pure clean drinking water.We had to upgrade and add another 75 gpd membrane to it. Because it is used so much everyday for drinking. Great product
Outstanding By Dave on 3/10/12

Great product! Built well, had better connectors than other sites, and at a reasonable price. The addition of the RO drinking water sold it to the wife. Fish are happy and the wife is happy!

Simple install with the video By kenneth on 1/29/12

This kit came complete with every possible fitting needed to install. Written instructions were good, but the video is all you need. The push connect fittings are a dream to work with. Almost too easy. Spend some time considering where you will mount it to make accessing the cartridges less of a hassle. The pressure tank holds about 2 gallons of water the way I have it set up. Not sure if I can actually get it to hold more. My experience with pressure (bladder) tanks is that they need to be pressurized to about 5psi *below* your water system pressure. My tank had zero pressure, so I pumped it up a bit.
After install, I dumped the first 5 gallons of RO product water and it tasted great after that. Same for the DI water. This is from a well with lots of iron bacteria and sulfur odors. This system produces beautiful drinking water and, of course, DI water with zero TDS. Reccomend a TDS meter as well - also easy to install and will satisfy your need to know what is really going on. Booster pump is a plus too if you are on a well.
