- 3/8" 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. The 3/8” fittings provide less back pressure if you require long runs of tubing. 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:
- ⅜” 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 Ryan on 11/15/2013Ryan would recommend this product to a friendJust moved to a new apt. Previous apartment had 35-38 PSI at best and would take 2.5 hrs to make 5 gal of RODI through my 75GPD. New place has an average 25 PSI and took over 24 hrs to produce about 35 gal. Finally decided to pull the trigger and pick up the pump and so glad I am as the new cycle will have me needing to make water more frequently. Pump is whisper quite, no joke you don't really notice even the slight hum it makes, weather sitting on the floor of the cabinet or mounted to the stand…. and best part is it boosted right up to 100 PSI! Had to dial it down to 80 PSI to be safe. Constant reliable pressure shredding fill times and a lot less waste water down the drain. Bought it with a float and PSW switch-- which I felt the factory setting of 40 PSI was too high so I dialed it all the way down (I think I read it goes down to 20 PSI?).
Summary; Stop putting it off and get it already. I tortured myself for 2.5 years!
No more waiting! By charles on 6/24/2011charles would recommend this product to a friendI never understood why people would buy a booster pump until my city decided to lower the water pressure to just above 40 PSI to conserve water. After buyig the 75 gph premium RO/DO unit and this pump I can fill one of my old salt containers in just over an hour. The old Kent HI-S system would take many hours and I would forget to check on it and have water everywhere.
What would I need to buy to make this a kit? I want this pump rather than the 1/4" fittings.
You would need a power supply at the least. Most folks also like to have a pressure switch if they plan to set it up on an automatic system, though those are only available in 1/4".
