220+GPD By Danimal on 4/7/14

Bought one of these along with the stage 6, which is now up to about a stage 10? (1 micron sediment, granular carbon, .6 matrixx bloc, granular catalytic carbon, .6 chloramine block, added a third dowtec membrane and then two DI canisters)! 1-3ppm before the DI and 220+ gallons a day...very little waste water. Change sediment, granular, carbon blocks and one DI canister every 10-12K gallons. I live in Denver and have good supply pressure @ 90+ across first membrane. This thing looks awsome. Everyone that sees it wants to know where the "GROW" room is...hahaha...remember, I live in Denver. I grow fish, not plants...but I'm sure it would work for that too. Thanks BRS!!!

I bought this to upgrade my Typhoon III as well as a replacement membrane for my aging one.
Our water isn't to bad in Dallas, around 300 TDS, but on my RO only output I'm at 2TDS! Obviously once it goes through the DI stage it comes out 0.
I do think you need to have a good amount of pressure to run two membranes. I have my booster pump set to around 73 PSI. This is probably not going to perform well at 40-50 PSI.

I have a 75g and 29g tanks set up right now. In my new home, we have really high water pressure, so once I discovered this item, I bought it right away. It's great being able to fill a 20g brute container in under 4 hours. Did I really need to make water this fast, no, but the fact I get to save water is always a plus. As well as being able to very quickly make extra water in an emergency is great too. Only reason it gets 4 stars is because I had to watch the video to install it, and the video was having issues playing for awhile. Some basic written instructions would have given it 5 stars.

This was an add on that was worth it!! I was down to around 28 GPD due to the winter and therefore cold water in Canada. I found the kit very easy to install. I did pull up the video's on the BRS site to help make it easier. The written instructions were a little less than perfectly clear but watching the video's made it no problems at all

If you have a private well and worry about your water supply especially in the Summer months, this is a no brainer. The upgrade combined with a booster pump has saved me a LOT of water. I can fill a 5 gal bucket in about 45 minutes as compared to 2 hours before the additional membrane and booster pump.

After getting confirmation that the membrane needed installed in the housing (not mentioned in the video) I was able to install this kit. The cap on the housing is on very tight. Tip: use two rubber strap wrenches used for getting off oil filters. They worked great to get it off without marring up the housing like a wrench would. I am also going to discard first 25g as the membrane package mentions something Bout discarding water from first few hours of operation.

We currently are using three RO units in series with 100psi home water pressure coming into house. The output water compared to the waste water has dropped significantly with the two 150 water saver upgrade kits that we added. If you are one of the few that have a high water psi I would highly recommend adding two of the BRS kits.

Love this !! Great price, super fast shipping and is now doubling my water production. I recently became a fish/reef addict and now have two 75 gallon tanks and one 40 gallon. I only use RO water and the initial 75gpd was taking too long with lots of water waste. It's so much quicker ive accidentally over flowed 2 of my water containers cause I didn't go check them quick enough. Easy hook up. One of my best purchases by far. Thanks BRS

I hated seeing all the waste water produced for such a small amount of RO/DI produced. This allows the ratio to be more acceptable by running the waste water through your 2nd membrane to pull out that much more. Great addition to your current unit and well worth the extra expense.

I bought the 75 gal ro system and was ok but didn't like the fact that my apt. water was only able to push 40psi. Needless to say burned through the resin quickly. I wanted to upgrade to this for a long time but could never afford the upgrade and pump. Now that I have them my water is pumping out quickly and couldn't be happier running at 80psi. Resin lasts longer which means it saves me money. Only wish I was able to afford everything a long time ago.

My wife and son bought this for me for fathers day and it really is the best present my son has gotten me. Water changes take half the time and apparently I am wasting less water. Installation was extremely easy because of the video BRS has made for us to watch. I think it took me 5 minutes and that was only because my unit is located in a tight spot under my sink. had i been able to just hook it right up without pulling out from under the sink it would have only take 2 minutes. I also save time when doing top offs. Thanks BRS you help make my life easier.

Best thing for multiple tanks By Steven on 5/1/13
Steven would recommend this product to a friend
So I must admit, I am a junky! Every time I turn around there is something new that I need. However, if you have multiple tanks then you really do need this for two reasons. 1. You do save water (being nice to our world) and 2. TIME. I hate having to wait on water before I can take care of a water change, etc. This allows for both. I never knew how valuable this was until a buddy of mine who is equally as much a junkie showed me how much faster his system was. I am a busy person and the time benefits have me sold. It is also the same construction as the existing system I have and just adding another membrane. I just wish the push connects were not as tricky when you get too many tubes in a small space.

I don't know why I waited so long to upgrade my RO unit. I am so glad that I finally ordered this add on unit. By using this one upgrade, I am no longer watching water and money go down the drain. I also forgot to mention that this cuts way down on the time to make RO/DI water, and time is also something that I never have enough of. Go ahead and make the right choice. Get one and see what I mean.

I was previously using the BRS 75 Gal/day unit and decided to add this upgrade to save some time making water for my 225 gal, 55gal, 20gal, and 10gal tanks as well as save some money on the water bill. It was well worth it! The unit now fills my 32gal drum in a couple hrs or less. It used to take me around 3hrs just to fill my 20gal bucket. The waste water produced was dramatically reduced too. BRS even made it super easy with a great how to video and was nice enough to include all the accessories needed and more! Thanks BRS!

this kit isnt all that expensive. gives better rate, save time and money, waste less water. easy to install. i suggest future brs deluxe ro di should have 150 gpd instead of 75. but remember though your psi should be higher than 60 if u want to use this otherwise it will not be efficient. i bought the booster pump from bri just to use this membrane. i want more kits from brs. this kit should combine with the booster pump kit. combine two kits and lower the price a bit thats my suggestion

Toby Williams would recommend this product to a friend
This really cuts waste down and easy to install. Keep in mind this upgrade needs 60 psi to work efficiently. I had 67psi at the faucet, after running 1/4" supply line from spigot and up the wall through my attic and into the garage to the unit, I was only getting 51-55 psi at the membranes. It's about a 20' total run with waste line doing the same at about 25' out to the back of the house. It still works fantastic with a lot less waste, but it looks like ill be getting the booster, because my DI Resin is depleting fast at the 1st canister of the dual DI, also I think I'd get a better rejection rate and even less waste also with faster production. Bottom line. We all hate to buy things we don't need but be prepared if your doing your setup like me with similar spigot pressure.
BRS 150 GPD Water Saver Upgrade Kit well worth the money By Kenneth on 2/16/13
Kenneth would recommend this product to a friend
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 2/16/13
Dan would recommend this product to a friend
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.

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.

Best Upgrade to my BRS 75GPD RO/DI system By Collin on 12/23/12
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!

Works great! By Sean on 11/20/12

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.
