- 1/4" Auto Shut Off Valve - Bulk Reef Supply
1/4" Automatic shut off valves are used with float valves or pressurized tanks to shut off an RO system. It utilizes the back pressure created by the float valve or pressurized tank to shut off the water supply to the membrane. Without an automatic shut off valve waste water would continue to run out after the float valve is activated or tank becomes full.
Don't last long By Travis on 1/12/2020Travis wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThese darn auto shut offs have cost me serious $$$ in wasted water. Literally hundreds of dollars in wasted water. I have replaced it several times and I am finally going with a different auto shut off device.
did'nt last long By redfelddan on 4/15/2017redfelddan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendwell it lasted about 2 days and 120 gal. of water before it started buzzing like crazy and not shutting
great product By reefermatt on 9/14/2015reefermatt would recommend this product to a friendWould give it 5 stars if I didn't need to replace so often about once per year. You do need to realize this product is a wear item like the breaks on your car or an oil change . I would be a fan of a repair kit for this valve as the housing never fails only the internals.
fixed the leak By polecat on 3/4/2015polecat would recommend this product to a friendmy shutoff valve starting leaking after i added a booster pump ordered a new one and no more leak and my presure is at 90 psi
Great Product and Super Fast Delivery By zoolan70 on 12/28/2014zoolan70 would recommend this product to a friendI ordered one to replace an existing one to try and fix a problem with my RO/DI system. Product arrived in 48 hours!
great product By Ol Crusty on 12/26/2014Ol Crusty would recommend this product to a friendThis works great is priced right
6 stage would'nt shut off By Capt Dave on 11/19/2014Capt Dave would recommend this product to a friendR/O kept running,contacted BRS they replaced it. No problems now works perfectly.
Good, but no directions. By Ed on 8/30/2014Ed would recommend this product to a friendThis product is competitively priced and works as advertised.
If you used this for an auto top off reservoir, be sure to turn off the water supply after your reservoir is full, or you will very quickly deplete your DI resin as the valve cycles off and on.
Also, this part is very difficult to install properly without instructions. BRS could easily include and instruction sheet. By not doing so, the user runs the risk of improperly installing and wasting water and DI resin.
excellent By dark moon on 5/26/2014dark moon would recommend this product to a friendgreat product works very well
Great Product By tmf171 on 4/23/2014tmf171 would recommend this product to a friendNow I don't need to use 5 gallon buckets and an small pump to get my RODI working. This replaces those things and removes points of failure!
my 6 stage deluxe ro/di shutoffs now By saboken on 8/24/2013saboken would recommend this product to a friendThis valve went bad after 1 day BRS sent out a new one after a long wait it seemed like they didn't believe me that it was bad! But they did finally replace it now I can leave the water supply on I was a bit frustrated at first that I had to persist about the issue but I am over it now :) there is so much on my wish list I hope future purchases go better. That's BRS without them I would not find half of what I need locally
Good Product but failed after 100 gallons of R/O water output... By Frank Oddo on 4/11/2013Frank Oddo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have this product installed on a 4 stage R/O DI unit in my basement which is custom piped into my wall in my tank room. The shut off valve has been working fine for the past 80 -100 gallons of fresh RO/DI water production. However, recently I have noticed that my pressure gauges will randomly spike from 0 to 60 PSI, even though my 50 gallon RO/DO storage tank is full and the tank float valve is in the closed position. This results in the unit randomly turning on and off and water trickling out of the waste line for no particular reason... It's clear that I have a faulty valve. andI am hesitant to buy another as I question the longevity of this part...
What PSI are these valves rated to shut off? Is there a way to adjust them? Thank you.
Hello, I have the BRS 5 stage with drinking water add on and premate pump. The waste water constantly is running lately. Would this indicate the pressure switch is failing?
I am adding and Add On Faucet Kit to my RO system to provide drinking water and also feed water to my DI canister for reeftank water. I currently do not have an auto shutoff valve or a float valve. How would I set this system up to keep the drinking water tank (DI canister bypassed) and my reef water reservoir (after the DI canister) full? Do you have plumbing diagrams available for me to follow?
Here are installation instructions: https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/instructions/article/Installing-an-auto-shut-off-valve
Will this work on the water supply line with the float in a waste water tank. I don't use any electric pumps on my RO system, just a permeate pump. We save the permeate from our system to use around the house. If not are there other options, maybe a solenoid that can shut down the water production when a tank is full.
When i purchased this the unit came with safety clips for all the mur-lok fittings. I would like to buy to safety clips separately for all my other mur-lok fittings. Can you get bags of these in 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 sizes? (pretty mediocre question ;) )
I have included the link below for the tube clips to hold in the tubing. these are sold individually in 1/4" and 1/2" sizes. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
I have had my custom system for 5 years now. Used for drinking and saltwater mix. Seems lately the auto shut off wont shut off. Tried cleaning it, didnt help. My question is would i be better off buying another autoff valve or a permeate pump or both?
I have te typhoon III EXTREME from air water ice and my auto top off seems to be working fine, but the waist water doesn't ever shut off. My reservoir bucket turns off perfectly.Could it be the auto shut off? Do they go bad after a few years?
There isn't much to go wrong with an auto shut off valve so it doesn't happen very often. Normal auto shut offs work by turning off the supply water when the product water line builds up enough pressure. If its not turning off, its usually because the product water line isn't building up enough pressure so its a matter of finding out why. The most common reason is just that the filters have become clogged and the unit just can't built up the pressure effectively, but its also worth checking and making sure that you don't have a small leak anywhere on the product line or something to that effect as well :-)
