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.

Ok.. this pushed my PSI from 48 on the incoming to over 100. Not sure since my gauge only goes to 100. I understand it is advertised to push water PSI to 115.

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

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 have about 37 psi out of my faucet, and made 1 gal about a half hour or more , now it's at 80 psi and 1 g a l in. About 15 minutes. My concern is that the Gage was going up to 90 psi as. I went along making water. I turn it down to 60. I don,t know which numbers I should watch, the outer numbers or the inner ones ?? Otherwise I'm very satisfied.

Great Investment to a RODI system By Kha on 11/2/2013
Kha would recommend this product to a friend
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.

The Aquatec 8800 booster pump is a must for any RODI system.

The pump will pay for itself over time and is easy to integrate into your current system.

I got the aquatec 8800 kit from brs I hooked it to my brs ro di system and what a difference it made . My water pressure went from 35 psi to 95 psi . Also my brs di resin last longer now. I also got the pressure switch and float valve which took the guess work out when my water storage container was full . No more check every hour to see if it is full. It shuts the pump off automatic when it reach a certain level. Thanks brs for making reefing easier

Aaron would recommend this product to a friend
Having well water only gave us a maximum of 45psi and dropped to around 30psi before the well pump kicked in. Water production was horrible and waste ratio was 4:1. With this pump we are at a consistent 85 to 90 psi and waste ratio has improved significantly. This pump is a must have for well owners. Hook up was easy, although I placed the pump right before the membrane instead of the first sediment filter. Works perfect.

My 75GPD 6-stage chloramines RO/DI kit was more like a 35-40GPD system until I got this pump. Water used to trickle out so slowly. The TDS going in to the DI stage was high as well and I was tearing through DI resin like crazy. When I added this pump, I had to turn it down a little to get back to 80psi by using the small hex screw in the center of the top and turning it counter-clockwise. Water shoots out so much faster (80-90GPD) and the TDS is lower out of the RO stage. The only mistake was mounting this to a wall - the vibration is carried through the house and it makes it pretty loud. I will try moving it to another surface that is de-coupled from the wall.

This is really a neat little pump, it comes with everything you would need to boost the pressure to your ro system. It boosted my pressure from 45lbs to around 90lbs. It is a little noisy and needs to be mounted to something so it dosnt walk around. Its easy to hook up, just snip out a short section of supply hose, and a short section of the hose that goes to your storage tank to insert the pressure switch. When you float rises, the pump will shut off automatically.

This works great! Bought the 75gpd RO/DI unit and when I got it set up I was VERY disappointed to find I only had about 30 psi and a periodic trickle of filtered water coming out. Purchased the booster pump and patiently (not really lol) waited for it to come so I could get rolling on curing the dry rock I previously purchased. Hooked it up and started getting nearly 100 psi!! Had to turn it back a little. Now pulling a steady 80 psi at 0 tds and have my rock curing in the basement!! :-) Next purchase might just have to be the converter kit to increase my unit to the 150 gpd now that I have the pump and know it could handle it!! :-)
