Great System, but bad faucet By Phillip on 10/13/2011

I recently purchased this RO Drinking water system from BRS. The system as a whole is very nice. It's easy to install, maintain and use. I like the clean taste and the use for my aquarium is a plus.
My only gripe is with the faucet. This is an "AIR-GAP" faucet. This faucet has a tiny hole in front of it that functions much like a siphon break in case of backflow and prevents drain (or clogged sink) water from backflowing into the RO system. Good idea in general, but it is VERY NOISY. I recommend if you do not require this for your building codes that you bypass the the drain connections on the faucet. This required me to buy the 1/4" saddle drain and check valve here at BRS. The stock drain valve is 3/8" for the faucet's large drain tube. The check valve provides the protection the air gap is trying to accomplish without all the noise.
I found this recommendation at the link below, and is what I am ordering from BRS to silence my RO unit.
Like I said, great overall system for a great price, but needs a little tweaking to quiet it down.

I have 2 BRS RO sys for driking water and one RODI for my reef tank. This is best value you can get. Health reef and Health family.

The customer service at BRS is excellent. Due to the shipping, my RO unit had a cracked nipple on arrival. Brandon, the customer service manager, promptly sent me two replacement parts via 2 day shipping and also explained how to install them. The system is up and runnign now and fills the 3+ gallon tank in just an hour. Excellent price and great quality. I highly recommend it.

I have had this ro system for 10 months now and I am really impressed with the build and system performance. The quality is great. I studied a lot of systems and asked a lot of questions and the response from this company is stellar!! Great experience Would buy from them again.
Good RO system By Tria on 3/3/2010

Good RO system for the price! Was thinking about going with a different RO system that was exactly the same as this for 2X the cost! Also replacement filters are 2X cheaper here (same exact replacement filters). Video instruction was very helpful in the installation. Only thing I did not expect was a hissing sound from the water dispenser. When the reservoir is full there is no sound, but while it is being filled up there is a constant hissing sound. For the quality I can deal with the sound.
