Great Water - Small Leak - Easy Fix By Frank on 1/19/2015
Frank would recommend this product to a friend
This system is great. No taste issues reported by other users and was easy to install. I would suggest two things. First, include a small amount of Teflon Tape. The metal to plastic unions on both the storage tank and the faucet are likely to slowly drip without it and I'm told it's standard practice to use whenever joining plastic to metal, especially male metal to female plastic. Second, Any reefers adding this on to their reef RO/DI instead of having a separate system should probably get a three way valve to facilitate switching between.

I had to get this. It is how I got the wife to agree to a water filter for my tank.
It was very easy to install. The water taste so much better than the regular tap.
Now the wife wants me to run the water over the frig. My job is never done.
Offensive odor and taste associated with the storage tank By Joel on 9/15/2014
Joel wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
This kit seems great on paper, but when the water in the tank sits within, the water becomes contaminated. The water from the tank emits a foul odor, and has an unclean taste. When the system is bypassed, the water tastes and smells as it should. BRS suggested that I buy another filter to run post-storage tank. This seems ridiculous to send water through the RODI to clean the water, have it sit in a storage tank, and then have to clean it again. And if this is a viable solution, why don't you offer this as part of your add-on faucet kit. Upon doing a little research online, this seems to be a common problem with the PA-E reverse osmosis tank. When I informed BRS of this problem and requested a refund, they said that I couldn't return a used item. I'm thoroughly displeased with the whole affair.

We are in well water that doesnt taste very good so we added this system to pure rodi unit and plumbed in into the refrigerator and were amazed on the difference it made. We run filters sediment and carbon coming into the house and one on the refrigerator and this is night and day different. I wish we had done this a year ago now. Installation was quick and easy. Parts were all high quality and worked well together.
Great excuse for the wife! By Mark on 2/11/2014

Got this add-on kit to justify to my wifey to get the RO/DI system! Easy to hook up, and have not had to change the filters for 2 years now. Make sure you have space for the tank (I have it under the kitchen sink). The 5 gallon tank doesn't actually hold 5 gallons, more like 3 at most, but may be partially related to my water pressure which is about 45 psi.
Great Add-on By Steve on 1/26/2014

I had to justify the purchase of an RO/DI system with my spouse - this add-on did the trick!
Overall a very good value and the instructions made the installation fairly easy.
One of the other reviewers knock it for an 'air gap faucet' - my purchase (1/10/14) came with a different kind of faucet that is silent and seems to work better. I think BRS has updated this.
It has taken a while for a plastic taste to get out of the water, I'm not sure if that is due to the tubing or pressurized tank. The way this connects to the BRS RO/DI system is impressive - you can tell BRS tried to make this installation as intuitive as possible.
Would buy again! Thanks BRS!
a great kit, easy to install but use tap to avoid leak for the tank. By chen yang on 3/30/2013

again i love what brs is doing. they provide easy instruction and solution for reefers. other online retailers sell these things seperately and with no instructions this is a good kit. easy to install. one thing to note: my pressureized tank was leaking so i have to use those seal tape thing to solve the leaking problem. so i would suggest brs include a small piece of tape in the future. its been a month now but the tank's water still has this greasy oil smell in the water. i dont know how to get rid of it so i didnt drink from the pressurized tank yet.
Great add on to a great system. By John on 10/2/2012

I purchased this unit from BRS and love it. I can't believe I used to pay for bottled water. I quickly plumbed this setup into my existing RODI and I have great tasting water too. I also added a taste cartridge also from BRS to ensure the best tasting water possible.

Outstanding Quality missing one thing By RJAllen on 7/15/2012
RJAllen would recommend this product to a friend
I purchased the add on kit along with my ROI system from Bulk Reef. Was impressed with the quality of product and service. I've installed RO systems in the past and this was the most complete kit except for one item that caused 2 hours of grief. Most of us doi not have a basin wrench, the plumbers secret weapon for install/ uninstall faucets in tight places. The the very helpful instructional video created by BRS about installation of the RO faucet shows a plastic extension that makes installing and removing the faucet a snap w/o special tools. This item was not included in my kit. I would have been glad to purchase it is I knew it was no longer included in the kit. Guess I'll spend the $30-$50 for a basin wrench kit when I have to take the system out!
Fantastic justification for your spouse for your reef RO/DI By Alfred on 3/23/2012
Alfred would recommend this product to a friend
Okay, two things: this is great in the sense that it is nearly complete! No more running to the hardware for this part or that. And, it turns your RO/DI unit into a great multi-tasking unit -- RO/DI water for your reef, and RO water for drinking. FOR ME, though, getting this unit made me easily justify getting the whole RO/DI unit in the first place -- "honey, we don't have to buy distilled water for the baby anymore! Just think of all the savings!"
