Auto Shut Off Kit for Reverse Osmosis Systems
All Bulk Reef Supply RODI units come pre-installed with an Auto Shut Off Valve and check elbow. If you wish to add a float valve to your BRS RODI system, just purchase a float valve separately and connect it to your product water line.
Auto shut off valves (ASOV) are great for reverse osmosis systems and will allow your RO system to automatically turn on and off based on the activation of a float valve. ASOVs do require a minimum of 40 PSI to operate correctly and can be installed on any style of reverse osmosis system that uses 1/4" tubing.
Auto Shut Off Kit Includes:
- Float valve
- 5ft of tube
- Inline check valve
- 1/4" auto shut off valve
The Float Valve in conjunction with auto shut off and check valve (Other two items already built into the BRS RO/DI systems) will work to turn the water to the RO unit on and off as the float is lowered and raised. This will always keep the water at the same level and has some strain on the RO/DI as the water will constantly be turning on and off through out the day. A pressure tank can certainly work as well to store larger amounts of water on hand and not have the same strain on the RO membrane.
You will want to install the float valve in the trash can. We recommend then using a John Guest 3 way ball valve which would be attached to the same product water line to divert the flow from either the trash can or to another area! This way you will not need to disconnect the line.
get so that my RODI water does not over flow thanks Nick.
This kit would be exactly what your looking for. The only extra consideration is making sure your system doesn't already have an auto shut off valve (as many do). If it happens to be that you have a system that has the shut off valve built in (like all of ours except the space saver) then all you would need is just the float valve itself.
If you have an auto shut off kit installed (not just a float valve) then water would stop running through the entire unit when the reservoir is full.
The instructions for these are in video form and can be found right here:
You would also want the auto shut off to turn off the RO/DI unit itself when the tank is full, otherwise you will just be running water down the drain!
That is correct, after the RO membrane and if you have a DI unit that would be before the DI canister. After going to the ASOV then the water would go on to the DI cartridge.
If you ordered one of the 6 stage deluxe models then everything in this kit would already be included. Any of our other RO units would include everything except the float valve, so you would need just the float valve with the other units.
