After adding my RODI unit my pressure was only 35-40 PSI which was not getting me anywhere on making my water. After adding this pump to my system I now have a SOLID 90PSI when making water.
This unit is extremely quiet and well built – A must have!
without a doubt its a great investment By jorge on 11/2/2012

Can't beat for winter preparation! By Brandon on 10/18/2012
Brandon would recommend this product to a friend
This pump is even better than I expected. It was simple to install. Not to mention, it's much quieter than I had expected! I thought as soon as I plugged this thing it, it would sound like a small air compressor, man was I wrong! I purchased this pump because I run a 90gpd piggy-back. My home water pressure is around 60psi in the summer, however, with the winter coming along, the cold water drastically reduces the pressure. I see such a pressure drop because this unit is setup in an outside Rubbermaid storage shed specifically for hobby items. This includes two 32 gallon Brute trash cans for fresh and saltwater mix. The water runs from a 75 foot hose from the house, to the RO/DI unit. Last year, I experienced pressures so low during the winter, I had to take my additional piggy-back membrane off and just run one. This year, with the additional pressure from the pump, I'll be prepared for winter! I highly recommend this product. Not to mention, you can't beat BRS' price on this!
Great unit! 220v side note By Chris on 10/15/2012

I must say that is is a great product for anyone not getting the required psi into their RO system. The unit is small, quiet and well bulit. I prurchased the booster pump because I was only getting, at best, 40 psi into the RO membraine. Now I am seeing 88 psi. With the 150 gpd upgrade and this pump my production has dramically increased and I am seeing a 1:1 ratio. Well worth the money!!!!
As a side note, any one who is living in an country that uses 220v you must buy a special converter for this unit. The 220v power supply can be found on this website: isopurewater.com and the item number is:TACS234-48RF. It will cost about 35.00 plus shipping.
Certainly doubled my RO output By Joe on 10/12/2012

My PSI went from 50 to 90 and my RO at least doubled. This means it will run for a shorter amount of time and produce less waste water. Well worth the purchase.

I have been running this pump for 60+ days now and love it. It runs quite and is very easy to adjust. It easily boosted my 40lbs to 90lbs. I did adjust it back to 85psi. I would buy it again.

This is a must have if you plan to upgrade to the 150GPD kit. The unit was a sench to install. Since installing the unit my RO/DI system eff has improved.
Very Solid and Works Great By Fernis on 8/23/2012

The quality of this pump is evident as soon as you hold it. It is very solid with a bit of weight to it. My pressure went from 45psi to 90psi.
Worth it if your RO/DI unit is running on low pressure By William on 8/15/2012
William would recommend this product to a friend
My 5 Stage RO/DI unit was running on about 35psi soon as this pump was installed it gave me about 120psi right off the bat. I dialed it down to sit at a steady 75psi and have had absolutely no issues with the pump. Fantastic product.
MAKES MAKING RODI FASTER By Tom on 8/12/2012
Tom would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this because I am on a well with 35psi, with this booster pump I now have 90 psi. This pump along with the 150gpd upgrade kit I am getting great results. I run it 6-8 hours at a time and it barely gets warm. A bit pricey but works great..

I have three RO systems my main aquarium water system has two 75 GPD membranes that produce a total of 150 GPD. I have good water pressure but I wanted good control. Typical RO systems with mechanical ASO valves are extremely unreliable. With this system using a booster pump and a pressure switch and an added normally closed 24V solenoid make it extremely reliable for my application. The pump is extremely quiet and produces a lot of quality water my TDS before the booster was 7-16 PPM and now it is 5-7 PPM before the DI stage. I fill my 25 gallon container in about 3 hours so I'm actually producing over 150 GPD (200 GPD). I also have a system using a 6800 booster pump and I have to say this pump is a huge improvement. I strongly recommend using a 24v Solenoid if you are using a float switch way over an ASO. Great value great performer the kit really needs to include a solenoid to shut the water to the membrane for that added security. I found that my ASO often turned on after the tank was full wasting water to drain I guess all I can say is an ASO valve is better than nothing.
Keeps Production Going By Pet Store George on 7/18/2012

I have a dog groomer in my pet shop and before I got this pump, my RO production would shut down when the grooming was bathing a dog. With this pump, I can keep producing all day long at a constant rate. This has helped me a lot.

Great addition to boost my ro/di output. Out of the box easy install too! I have low pressure and this quadrupled my water that had been very slow.

Great product, increased my water production greatly By Jared on 7/8/2012
Jared would recommend this product to a friend
Up until recently I relied on my household water pressure to run my RO/DI system. At only 40-55psi max it would take roughly an hour to make one gallon of product water. I made this purchase and have never looked back; I can't believe I waited so long for this. I have been running my system for almost 2 years before I made the leap and purchased the booster pump. I have went from producing 1 gallon an hour to 3.5 an hour. The waste water volume has also reduced along with the time interval it takes for my DI resin to exhaust. The volume of water that used to take me two and almost 3 three days now takes less than one. I can't express how delighted I'm for this product.

I had to get this because our water pressure was only around 26lbs.
So glad we did! The only issue i had with it. Was the vibration, it would shake the water line pretty good. Which I solved by placing some foam tubing over it.

Although a tad pricey for my taste I happy with the quality of the product. It did it's job and boosted my very poor water pressure to a hefty 75psi with no problem. Now I can use the 150GPD upgrade with maximum efficiency.

Recently added this pump to my 5 stage RO/DI with dual 100 GPD membranes and I had pretty decent pressure at 60 PSI, but I added this and wow did it make a difference. I now make water at almost 270+ GPD a day. 40 gallon tank is filled in 3 1/2 hours!!!!

This pump is soo nice. Since Im on a well and my water pressure was to low my ro unit was not running efficiently. But now its running great. I would recommend a prefilter so you don't ruin the pump

we're now on a well with marginal pressure -- this (pricey) booster brought our efficiency up a bunch!!!!! wish it was cheaper, love what it does for me...
Works amazingly well with AWI Typhoon RODI By Shawn on 2/23/2012
Shawn would recommend this product to a friend
I have the Air Water Ice Typhoon Extreme III RO/DI system. It worked *ok* on city water pressure around 35-40psi. I've since moved to my new house where my well water pressure is only around 25psi and the RO/DI output is awful. Admittedly, I needed to change the RO filters, but it took THREE hours to fill a 5 gallon bucket….Three hours!!! I knew a booster pump was definitely needed.
I was considering the pump that AWI sells, but heard mixed reviews so I tried this one given the great reviews here and on all the saltwater forums. I’m glad I did!!! This baby is sweet. Super easy to setup and the pressure switch works perfectly for shutting off the pump when my ASOV kicks in. You can barely hear it running too.
The AWI RO/DI I have says that you shouldn’t go above 75psi so I was able to fine tune the pump (using adjustment screw on top) to give me 70psi and the water production rate is SO much better. The most satisfying test is just turning the pump off and seeing how pathetic the flow rate into your holding container is! Then plug it back in and watch the water start streaming out!
The rejection rate also seemed to get better too. I don’t have exact percentages because I forget what my well water TDS was to start with…but I can say that my TDS out of the RO membrane fluctuates between 1 or 2 WITH the pump. Without the pump, I was getting 4-6 pretty consistently. Naturally it is 0 out of my DI…but the lower the TDS is on the input to the DI, the less money you pay in DI replacements!
AWESOME!!! A MUST FOR LARGER RODI SYSTEMS By spotter on 2/20/2012
spotter would recommend this product to a friend
I just added this to my system when I upgraded from 75 gpd to 150 gpd. My pressure was just under 55 psi and I split my rodi output line in 3 different directions. I would never be able to fill 3 different containers at the same time...until now that is. With the booster pump my psi gauge is full throttle and I can fill all 3 containers at the same time when needed. You won't regret this investment.
