- 1/4" 8800 Booster Pump - Aquatec
Add the Aquatec 8800 Booster pump to your reverse osmosis unit if you have low water pressure in your house or want to get better performance out of your system. This booster pumps requires a transformer which is sold separately. If your RO system has an auto shut off kit or you are planning on installing one the Aquatec PSW Pressure Switches (sold separately) is also required.
Benefits of maintaining higher water pressures
- Improved waste water ratio
- Improved membrane rejection performance
- Reduced DI resin consumption
Aquatec 8800 Booster Pump Features:
- ¼” Push Connect fittings
- Patented "flex-mount" base plate significantly dampens vibrations and reduces noise
- Adjustable pressure
Note: Aquatec 8800 Booster Pumps do require a minimum of 20 PSI to operate. Not having proper pressure feeding the booster pump will cause poor performance, and void the warranty.
Why did I wait so long..... By Adam on 7/11/2018Adam would recommend this product to a friendThis booster pump should of been on my system years ago! Before I added the booster pump, my water pressure would fluctuate between 40 - 45 psi and making RO/DI water would be an all day affair. Adding the pump has boosted my water pressure to 80 psi (It was near 100 psi on initial start up, but was real easy to adjust it down to 80 psi) and making water no longer takes all day. I am very pleased with this pump and would highly recommend this as a must have accessory to your RO/DI system.
Buy one and save! By David on 4/16/2018David would recommend this product to a friendMy water pressure was around 45PSI and it took about 24 hours to get 40 gallons of RO/DI water on a 75GPD system. Recently received this pump, came calibrated to 83-84 PSI. Easy to hook up. Had 40 gallons RO/DI in under 12 hours. Not only that, the water (city supply) going into the DI stage was 1-2 TDS which means your DI material should last much longer as well. Make sure your fittings are pushed all the way in and filter canisters are tight as the additional pressure will let you know if they are not. 80-90 PSI is not too much for BRS RO/DI systems once checked. Don't forget the transformer (no power supply without it) and in line filter (recommended by MFG and BRS). The auto shutoff may or may not be necessary depending on your set up.
Awseom By Chuckie buckles on 4/15/2018Chuckie buckles would recommend this product to a friendPump is very powerful. I can make ro/di water like crazy now. Love this thing.
Beyond expection By Jeff on 1/19/2018Jeff would recommend this product to a friendI recently moved into a new home with well water. With my 6 stage 175gpd ro/di unit in the city maintaining around 50 psi out here in the country I was devastated to find only 30psi when I was lucky it took hrs to make 5 gallons and had to rush to the lfs to get enough water to move my fish into the new home. I bought this unit in hopes of getting back up to 50 psi but it went way beyond! I was pushing 88psi and can now make a gallon of water in 8 minutes. I could not be any happier, my wife laughed saying she's never seen anyone so happy after filling up a gallon jug of water before!
Works great. Increased the output as needed By jason on 12/15/2017jason would recommend this product to a friendI have used these over the years and purchased only from BRS. The pumps worked great. I will note that I had one for a number of years. Lasted three years. Then had to be replaced. Probably shorter life span than I hoped for but then again.. I used it at least twice as much as others will. I have a larger system and it requires more top off water and I do heavy amounts of water changes. In my opinion no system should be without this pump.
Worth every penny By Steven on 10/1/2017Steven would recommend this product to a friendMy home water pressure runs at 40psi to 45psi. I have a 75gpd unit and was lucky to get 1 1/2gph output. Using this to boost pressure, I am now making 3 to 4gph saving time and waste water.
No problems in 6 months of use. My mixing station is in the garage so the noise is not an issue for me. Great product.
works beautifully but is noisy By medtoad on 8/25/2017medtoad would recommend this product to a friendInstalled this upgrade with anadditionall insures membrane on my 320 system so as not to waste water and speed up making new RO water. Works beautifully and wasn't hard to install. Contrary to some of the reviews IT IS NOISY. I initially mounted on the wall in my back room which acted like a sounding board and the pump was audible through our entire large home. I've now suspended with strings from some very long screws and it is much quieter (though still audible in the office.) Speed of water manufacture is so quick now that it is not on for very long though
Glad I bought it By Matt on 8/23/2017Matt would recommend this product to a friendMy pressure is about 40 psi and I my BRS RODI 75 GPD was only putting out about 2 gallons an hour. With this and the 150 GPD upgrade I'm up to 12 gallons an hour. I was worried about the noise but it's not really noticeable more than a few feet away.
great product By Matthew on 12/10/2016Matthew would recommend this product to a friendGreat pump. the power supply lasted about 3 years and had to be replaced but the pump itself is still going like brand new. I have purchased 3 of these and all of them work great! They do sell the power supply separately so you don't have to buy the whole kit again; just the part needed.
Great pump By Luis on 10/8/2016Luis would recommend this product to a friendMy water output before the pump was 35psi. Once I installed the pump my psi jumped up to 83.
Increase output and reduce rejected water By Lawrence on 7/13/2016Lawrence wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBefore having the pump, the ratio between rejected water and RODI was 2 : 1, now it is 1 : 1.23. I'm very very happy.
It used to be 18 minutes to produce 1 gallon of RODI. Now 8 minutes!! WOW !!!
The pump increases the water pressure from 50 psi to 90 psi, and when I turn the faucet to wash my hands, the pressure just drops to 80 psi.
* When you order, make sure you buy the "glycerin filled pressure gauge". Otherwise you can't measure the performance!
* I built a wooden stand on the floor for it. If I mount on the wall, the vibration will make some noise.
Good little pump By James on 9/9/2015James would recommend this product to a friendIt's worked perfectly! It pushes 85psi so I backed it down to about 70psi. The pressure is rock solid. If someone takes a shower or does laundry.. 70psi, no change. It's pretty quiet too, for a pump. I like the springy rubber mounting feet. They definitely help suspend it and make it quieter.
Does this product come with the transformer or does only the kit come with it
This product is just the booster pump itself (more intended as a replacement part). The power supply is either sold separately or is also included in the kit.
Does the pump turn off at preset pressure point?
Let say I want to run the whole system at 70psi. Does the pump automatically turn off at 70psi?
What is the recommendation psi to run the pump I currently have brs rodi unit 2 75 gallon membrane 1-sediment 2 carbon blocks and the 3 stage di
You would want to shoot for the 55-60 PSI range.
If this booster pump stops working is there a reset switch??? I replaced the power supply with Aquatec # TACS114-48 and that made no difference
There is not a direct reset switch. If the power supply is correct and the pressure switch is functional the unit should run as long as the pressure switch is not off. I have included the contact information for Aquatec below.

Can this pump be used to transfer saltwater?
This pump is only designed for boosting the existing pressure on residential water systems where freshwater is being moved through the lines. We would have to recommend something different such as a Sicce hobby pump, or something of that type if you are looking to move mixed saltwater.
Does the head of the pump ever need cleaning and is there a kit for that. Gaskets and parts
These booster pumps are not serviceable, so we do not recommend disassembly and we do not sell spare parts for the pump. Have a great day!
Does this go before the system or do you put it in place before the RO membrane?
A booster pump is best installed right before the whole unit.
