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 2/23/12
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 2/20/12

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.
Well worth the investment! By Collin on 2/17/12

Before I installed this my house was pressurizing the input at 45psi which ended up meaning that the RO/DI 5 stage was producing 37 gallons per day, way below optimum.
After installing the pump I was producing water at 72 gallons per day, extremely close to the touted 75 GPD for the RO/DI sold on BRS.

Great addition to RODI system By Kevin on 2/16/12

I had an inlet pressure of 42 psi. I added this kit and my inlet pressure went to 94 psi. It makes RODI water fast and it is relativly quiet. easy to install and use. Worth the money

My faucet pressure is only 22psi and when I first installed this pump I was getting 92psi to the membrane! I easily adjusted the pressure to 63psi. I would'nt have believed the improvement with my 75gal 5 stage+ if I had not seen it for myself. The pump is also very quiet running even though I run my system on the countertop.
Great unit but be ready to adjust By Doug on 1/23/12
Doug would recommend this product to a friend
Watched the video for installation and BRS said the pump and pressure switch are adjusted from the factory so no adjustment is usually necessary. I hooked everything up and the booster pump went over a hundred psi so I had to back it down. Then tested the pressure switch and at about 90 psi it was still going strong so I had to adjust that as well. Now that everything is adjusted properly its working like a charm. Love it!
Low Pressure Problem Solved By Keith on 1/17/12
Keith would recommend this product to a friend
I ordered this item and it arrived today. It only took about 20 minutes to install. I oredered it due to the low pressure coming into my home. I was getting 30 psi at best. After installing the booster pump, the pressure jumped to 80 psi, making my system more efficient. I highly recommend this item for those dealing with low water pressure. It works as discribed, easy to install and runs quietly.
excellent booster By Jose on 1/9/12

previously had little water pressure. Now I have nothing to worry about water pressure, easy installation, low vibration, making the most advantage of my system of RO / DI.

Kit is great with everything you need to complete the setup, had a bit of a draw back since it blew the lid off of an aditional canister so i BACKED IT DOWN A BIT. wAS RUNNING HOUSE PRESSURE AT 35-40- NOW AT 70-75.
Have a well -- get this pump By Carveth on 12/2/11
Carveth would recommend this product to a friend
It is nice for everything you need comes with it and their video makes for an easy install. We have a well and I thought I'd try the RO/IO system without it. No go. Wells are set up with lower pressures and varying pressures. They typically operate between 30 - 50 pounds, give or take a few pounds either way. The lower pressure is to reduce the back pressure on the pump down in the bottom of the well. This makes it last much longer. The range also saves the pump. Otherwise the pump would have to come on every time you turn a faucet in the house. It would be constantly kicking on and off. The well pump, pumps water up into a pressure tank which keeps a steady flow throughout the house.

I have a well so I had very low water pressure. Now I get over 90psi and my 5-stage plus unit produces water much faster.

I have the 150 gallon per day deluxe kit and was pleased with the results with it running at 40 psi, I chose to add on this pump when we decided to get a refrigerator with the water built in, combining this pump with a pressure tank we have great results and never run out of water, installation took 5 minutes.

Very quiet pump, will maintain pressure during the summer when the water pressure drops. Will allow you to have a much more reliable filtration unit in terms of production and purity of the filtrate.

I ordered the 5 stage 75gpd system and installed it 2 weeks ago, learned that my house did not have enough water pressure, was barely 30 psi at the membraine. Ordered the booster pump and the 150 gpd upgraded and just installed both in under 30 min with the help of the videos. Now showing 92 psi before the first membraine and I cant even hear the pump run. Great product and great service.

Finally I get get more than 5-10 gallons a day from my old ro/di unit. Nice hefty unit. Installation instructions could be made a little clearer though.

I'm running this thing on a 150gal per day system and it pushes my unit to max performance I was making about 100 gal per hr. @ 60 PSI with .05ppm phosphates. Now I'm making about 160gal hr. @ 85psi with 0 ppm phosphates. Definitely worth the money, I paid full price get it now for memorial week and they're knocking off 20% that's 112 bucks. Don't miss out on this sweet buy.

Significantly increased output and decreased waste water By Chris on 11/4/10
Chris would recommend this product to a friend
I have had this installed for one day and I'm in love! I have the 75 gpd 5 stage Plus system from BRS. I had about 45 psi in water pressure, made about 2.5 gal/hr (60 gpd), and had a waste ratio of 3:1.
I hooked this up (with a sediment prefilter, <http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/store/omnipure-inline-sediment-filter.html>) and it rocks!!! I have ~90-95 psi pressure, making about 5 gal/hr (120 gpd!), and the waste ratio is 2:1. I feel much better knowing I'm wasting much less water. (Now I'm considering adding the 150 gpd second RO membrane kit...)
If you have low pressure, want more output, or want to waste less water (or all three, like me), BUY THIS!
Well WATER!LOW PRESSURE By David on 6/29/10

Have well water low pressure get one of these ,i had 30psi and with the booster pump jump to 80psi,Also increased performance of my RODI.Also very easy to install.One thing that i would suggest buying is a prestage filter with 5 micron sediment filter ,so that it wont damage booster pump,all in all good product.
