Good RO Unit but needs a little tweaking By Phillip on 10/13/11

I recently purchased this RO Drinking water system from BRS. The system as a whole is very nice. It's easy to install, maintain and use. I like the clean taste and the use for my aquarium is a plus.
My only gripe is with the faucet. This is an "AIR-GAP" faucet. This faucet has a tiny hole in front of it that functions much like a siphon break in case of backflow and prevents drain (or clogged sink) water from backflowing into the RO system. Good idea in general, but it is VERY NOISY. I recommend if you do not require this for your building codes that you bypass the the drain connections on the faucet. This required me to buy the 1/4" saddle drain and check valve here at BRS. The stock drain valve is 3/8" for the faucet's large drain tube. The check valve provides the protection the air gap is trying to accomplish without all the noise.
I found this recommendation at the link below, and is what I am ordering from BRS to silence my RO unit.
Like I said, great overall system for a great price, but needs a little tweaking to quiet it down.

paired this with the 6 stage deluxe system, was easy to install and helped offset the cost of an RO system as we now no longer need those 5 gallon bottles of water twice a week, its a great way to get a spouse to agree to an RO system

Great for drinking water. However, my previous drinking water tap was with an air gap and slightly faster. Nevertheless, good kit and easy to install.
Very easy to install. Makes drinking water hassle free By Milan Zdimal on 5/13/11

The only thing I would recommend is that BRS should mention that you will need a Auto Shut Off Valve if you don't already have one, as waste water will constantly flow otherwise.

i have my ro/di unit in my basement, but i wanted the drinking water too. it's so simple to set up. you can leave the pressure can in the basement and just send up the one line to your sink. much better than the water from the fridge. (well with kids it is) if you spill it it goes in the sink.
