BRS 150 GPD Water Saver Upgrade Kit well worth the money By Kenneth on 2/16/2013

I have been running a 50GPD Coralife RO/DI unit for a few years now. The system was extremely slow to produce good water and quick on producing waste water. Based off information I found on BRS and other website sites I changed my setup. I first upgraded my membrane to 75GPD and replaced the flow restrictor on my system. This improved the good to waster water ratio. The next upgrade I did was to add the BRS 150 GPD Water Saver Upgrade Kit. The video on installing this kit made the upgrade simple. The install took less than 10 minutes and was extremely simple and have not had any problems with leaks. The key to the install is making sure you can the water tubing as close to straight as possible. It's nice that you get 5 Feet of Red, White, Blue and Black RO Line with the kit. The install of the kit has increased my output and has reduced the amount of waste water I produce. I have also now added a booster pump which has helped reduce the amount of time it takes to produce water and seems to have helped with the consumption of the DI resin.
Fantastic Upgrade By Dan on 2/15/2013

Well I had been running a 75 gpd unit with a booster pump and was realatively happy, but I wanted to cut down on the waste water. Well I can say that it certainly does cut down on the waste water and boosts output dramatically. Prior to installation I was producing about 1 gallon of good water to 3 gallons of waste. After installation I'm producing 1 gallon of good water to 1.3 gallons of waste. I would say thats a dramatic reduction in waste water. Also I just fill my ATO bucket which holds 6 gallons of water. The unit produced 6 gallons in 59 minutes! That works out 146-147 gallons per day. The booster pump has keeps a constant 78 psi while producing. I would definetely recommend this upgrade. Thanks BRS!

I added this based off the video on improving the ratio of good to bad water produced from using a 5 stage ro/di unit. I didn’t notice the difference until I added the booster pump after I realized that I wasn’t getting the 65 or more psi. After attaching the pump I had less water to dispose of. I wasn’t just letting the refused water go down the drain, I was storeing it in two 55 gallon barrels to water the lawn and garden with.
Awesome way to increase output and save water. By Al on 1/28/2013

I started with 1 upgrade kit, and liked the results so well that I purchased a 2nd and then a 3rd (total 4 RO's). So if anyone else wondered what would happen, let m explain. With 2 upgrade kits (total 3 RO's) and the booster pump, I was getting 3:1 rejection rate - for every 3 gallons of water in, I got 1 gallon of product water out. When I added the 3rd upgrade kit, not only did my pressure drop way down, but there was no further improvement in rejection rate.

Super easy to install, boosted my system and saved time. I cut my time to make RO water in less than half. Set up auto top off and makes things even easier. Good upgrade.

Best Upgrade to my BRS 75GPD RO/DI system By Collin on 12/23/2012
Collin would recommend this product to a friend
I originally had a 75GPD RO/DI system from BRS, but it took 3 hours to make one batch of water needed for a water change. After adding this kit, the time I needed to make RO water was cut in half. Plus, I was wasting less water, is always good.
Definitely worth the upgrade if you have an existing RO system with only 75GPD.
The video instructions make it super easy to set up as well!

Save $$$ You will cut down your water bill big time with this kit By Rob Coberg on 12/9/2012

I am learning as I go. I built my RO/DI system using a 75 GPD membrane and it is slow. I bought this Kit and not only did it double the output, the waste water is cut down to a low ratio. next to add is a booster pump with a auto shut off.
Works great! By Sean on 11/20/2012

Works great - added to my Max cap unit - along with a flush kit and appropriate flow restrictor - and wonderful things happened.
Note prior to this I had the CDP8800 booster pump dialed in at about 70-75 PSI (depending on filter lifecycle) with a single membrane since my utility water was normally 40-50 PSI which is borderline.
This installed quick and easy. Only thing I wish is that BRS had the option to order it with a pressure gauge (or at least with a plugged pressure gauge hole) to match my first membrane.
I primed everything, and also replaced my original membrane at the same time (bought her at BRS same order), ran a flush for good measure, then turned the system into production - measured waste water to product water ratio - it went from 5:1 to 2:1, and TDS rejection shot way up - post filter, I am at about 170PPM. Single membrane was throwing off 5-8 PPM product after running for awhile and settling down. Now, I am seeing 1PPM! That may not seem like much, but saves a lot of DI life, and makes for a 99.41% rejection rate! It's kept this up for 4 months now - I think flushing for a good minute at start and shutdown makes some difference too.

Added this unit to the 6 stage RO/DI unit I bought from BRS and it has been installed for 60+ days now. It works great. With the added booster pump that has been giving me 85psi, the 150 kit has been more than cutting my waist water in half. For each gallon of good water I only produce 1.5 gal of bad. Love it and I would buy it again.

Added this to my 90GPD 5 stages RODI system. Loved it. Still produces 0 TDS water but much much faster and less less waste.

I have the 75 GPD RODI system, was putting out too much waste water. I added the 150 GPD water saver kit and it has cut down on the waste water. It runs about 1:1 ratio. I can fill a 5 gallon jug in about 55 minutes.

I added the water saver upgraded after already owning and running a 6 stage chloramine ro/di unit. My water is not the ratio of waste to ro/di water was ridiculous. I added this and now im able to make water a lot faster and my waste water is a lot less. This add-on was easy to install and has increase production without hindering water quality.

This a great addition your a RO/DI system to help produce more water and also produce less waster water which is always nice. It is recommend to have at least 65Ppsi for it to operate optimally.

This kit doubles your RO/DI output, while cutting your waste in half. So you make twice the water in the same time you did previously AND dump less down the drain... all for a reasonable price. What's not to like? Being nice to the earth (and your water bill) and cutting the time it takes to make purified water... sounds like a win win situation to me.
Oh and there's a handy video on the product page showing how to hook it up. Beautiful.
If you are getting a new RO/DI unit, get it pre-installed. If you already have one, buy this to up your output and halve your waste - it's good earth saving karma.

and I got it! I'm not patient enough for the 75gpd, so I opted for the 150gpd upgrade for that reason and also to reduce the amount of waste water. My production has doubled and my waste water halved. Install was easy with the provided video above. Highly recommended!

I purchased this unit a week after buying the RO/DI Delux System. Once I confirmed I had over 65psi water line pressure, I bought the upgrade. My results are 1 gallon of RO/DI water for 1 gallon wastewater. This is one of the best ratios on the market with the lowest price. My water line pressure fluctuates between 65 psi and 75psi. Water production time is also cut in half. Everithing needed for the upgrade was included with the kit and the installation video available on this site made it super simple to install with no special tools needed.

This thing is worth every penny. With all the money I will save on water I can buy new flooring because I keep forgetting how fast it is compared to my single unit.
I didn't have to buy the booster pump. My home had sufficient pressure and all is good.
