I installed my 8800 on the wall in the garage. It vibrates terribly but I dont hear it once I shut the door. When it was in the laundry room, it was more obnoxious. Many say it is quiet, so I'm wondering if I have a defective one. It does do the job, however.

I bought a house a couple years ago. On city water and my PSI sways from 40-45psi. Finally got this booster pump, and I was able to raise my psi to my unit's recommendation of 80psi. I had to dial down the booster pump from ~85psi, and it was very easy with a 1/16 allen wrench.
I keep my RO/DI system in my laundry room, close to the living room, and the sound is barely noticeable (pump is mounted). Note, pre-filter will vibrate too, make sure to secure that.
Speaking of the pre-filter, BRS should offer this kit with it instead of the pressure switch, and make the pressure switch an option. Since EVERYONE should be running it with the prefilter, and not everyone needs a pressure switch.
An excellent investment that will save you time, water, and di resin.

Really improved my GPD output, especially during the winter months when production usually decreases. Auto Shut Off feature works well.
Well worth the cost, if you have lower pressure By Ram on 1/27/2015

My Spectrapure CSPDI 90 gal system was running at about 45 PSI for the longest time. A gallon of water would take more or less 30 minutes to filter through... not cutting it! I added this booster pump and have never looked back. Essentially doubled my pressure and cut the time to produce a gallon in half.
Operation is relatively quiet and setup really couldn't be any easier. Highly recommend you just buy this thing.

My home water pressure was 48 PSI and after I installed this booster it was at 98. I now run a 150 GPD RO system with no problems. I can however hear this pump running from my basement as a dull hum throughout the 1st floor of the house.
Does the job, but super noisy! By Warren on 1/16/2015
Warren wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
This thing vibrates my entire house's plumbing. It is awfully unpleasant. One of my least favorite purchases from BRS. I'm going to try a Gold Series Shurflo instead. My entire family complains about this pump. We can hear it all the way from the basement to the top floor. The pump itself isn't that noisy, but it has some sort of pressurized wave effect on the plumbing.

Fantastic, well worth the buck! I have a 4 stage unit that was putting out less than 40 psi. Because of low water pressure filling my tank was a slow and argues process. This unit took my system up to 95 psi. I can produce water quickly the DAY of my water change!

Doubled my PSI By jeffrey on 9/20/2014
jeffrey would recommend this product to a friend
Just installed this on my RO/DI unit and my before PSI was 40 PSI and with this pump kit I am getting just above 80 PSI. I also installed my RO/DI unit inside a cabinet since I have mine outside under a deck. If you dont you will eventually get green algae problems in it. Keep it dark ;-) Have to order a bracket to be able to install another 10" canister for my DI resin so I do not yet know how the pump will effect the DI depletion. It seem to use DI resin fast when I had only 40 PSI. More to follow
Does a Great Job, but is far from quiet By Bert on 7/3/2014

This pump does a super job if you need the pressure for your RODI system as I did. Simply be aware it's far from silent when it operates. I can hear mine operating with it's fast chug-chug-chug in the other room with both the door to it's cabinet and that room closed.

I purchased this kit for my RO/DI unit and I was amazed at how much more water this thing helps my unit produce. My home has a well and I was always sitting between 35-40 PSI. I purchased this pump and now it keeps my input at a constant 80 PSI. I did however have to turn the small screw on the top because when I initially hooked it up it was over 100 PSI.

I was only getting 45 lbs of pressure through my brs water saver system I received some time ago. Not wanting to run my r/o unit at half capacity and waste tons of water I waited till I got this booster pump. Well worth the 1 year wait. Pump is solid, heavy, made in the US and runs pretty quiet. Boosts my pressure to about 90 psi which is well over the recommended pressure so I'm a happy camper.

I went back and forth deciding if it was worth it to get this or not. After installing it and running it for a few weeks I have to say it is truly worth the price. I not only make water more efficiently, but waste a lot less as well. It is nearly silent when running and enables me to get the exact pressure I want.

I just received this pump setup a few days ago. I also bought the 150 gpd upgrade with it. I am on a well and could only get about 40 psi. I hooked up the pump and pressure switch and I am getting a steady 70 psi. The pump is quiet and has really increased the water production.
It does what it's supposed to. Good product.

Exceptionally Quiet By Phenganax on 3/12/2014
Phenganax would recommend this product to a friend
I was expecting this pump to be fairly loud and was concerned because of where I have it in my apartment; however, it was quieter than my Bak-Pak 2. I also have readings of 70 psi after my second membrane, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to increase their psi or add a second membrane. I was also concerned that it would be too much pressure for my 15 gallon pressurized RO reservoir and that the pressure valve wouldn’t shut it off. Much to my satisfaction this has not been a problem, the whole system works flawlessly now!

Works as Described By Tim on 2/6/2014
Tim would recommend this product to a friend
Cold winters in Canada showed me that I needed to up my system to 150 GPD. I only have 60 PSI out of the tap so I needed this pump. For my application it works great!! I had to actually turn down the pump as it increased my PSI past 100. I tuned it down to 80 - 82 PSI.
I will say the pump is a little louder than I'd like. The one thing that I'm not thrilled with is the noise of the PSI gauge. I have the default air filled gauge and the pump causes the dial to (flip flop) and that = noise. BRS support states that Glycerin filled gauge will nullify this. I have yet to purchase that.

I purchased this with the 150GPD Water Saver RO/DI kit and I have to say, this is like adding a turbocharger to your water output! Has a consistent pressure of 85 psi and blows that water out. Another simple to install BRS product that saves the day!

Before installing this my dual membrane system was operating at about 35psi. My system was producing about 50/50 product/ waste water. After installing this booster i am operating at 70psi and my water to waste production is around 75/25 product/ waste water. This thing is a must have if you want the highest efficiency possible out of your system.

Hooked this up in minutes and it took my psi from 40 to 90. Took it from a trickle to a strong stream. Fills my holding tank at least 3 times faster. I live in a small town that has water with tons of crud in it was burning threw DI resin. Before I would have to change resin after filling my holding tank which holds about 30 gallons after 3 times. Now I have so far filled it 4 times and only about 1/4 of the resin had started to change color.

I have a well for our water system and the pressure has never been very good so when I added my 75 GPD RODI system on it, which had a pressure gauge, I was surprised that it showed I only had 20 psi, so I bout the Aquatec 8800 and my pressure went up to just over 90 psi. I use to fill my 55 gal resureve over a period of several days, now I get a gallon in about 30 min.

I live on a well, 35-55 psi cycle. Attached the pressure gauge (sold separately) before the membrane and only 30 psi. Hooked up the pump, 5 minute job, and now I'm at 80 psi going into the membrane. Output went from a trickle to nice stream. Will be interesting to see how long it takes to fill my 25 gal WC container this weekend. At the tap for our drinking water the flow is more than doubled. Excellent product.

I had 45psi on my 75gph + 150gph upgrade RODI system until I added this pump. My psi is now 82-ish. Working great so far! Very easy to assemble and BRS already has a video on the installation (not that you would really need it). The pump makes some noise (very little) and vibration as all pumps do. The bracket seems to help out a bit. Not very concerned about the noise level since its going to be installed in a basement/ garage area. Wished the transformer had mounting hardware for the wall as the RODI and booster pump does. It has 4 rubber feet that sits on a horizontal surface. Not a big deal and not worth dropping any stars.

Stop what you're doing and BUY THIS UNIT NOW By Carlos A. on 10/6/2013
Carlos A. would recommend this product to a friend
I've been frustrated to no end trying to fine tune a similar setup I bought from another vendor. Their unit included the same pump but didn't include a pressure switch and instead required the endless fine-tuning of several different variables (turn this dial down, turn the other up, but not too much, etc...), which took hours and hours and it never ever came even close to working as well as this did right out of the box. This is a set-it-and-forget-it solution that is SO MUCH EASIER. I had thrown away my previous set up and I am so glad I bought this one. My 150 gpd RO system went from producing a very slow drip (maybe 25 gallons/day) to now producing a solid stream of very close to the 150 gpd max. More importantly, the ratio of good to bad water is much better. Buy this now. It's the same kind of quality you find with Tunze and Bubble King.
I highly recommend combining this with the: Aquatec Auto Flush Flow Restrictor, also available on this site. That makes it truly an automatic system that will save you tons in filters and water over the long run.
Aquatec is brilliant for having designed this. Bravo.
