DI water is not recommended for human consumption. Instead we do have our drinking water systems which use RO water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
There is no exact answer however typically this is a 2 part waste to 1 part product water. waste water can be used to water the lawn or plants however is not recommended for consumption. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This will vary quite a bit depending on the quality of the water, as well as time between producing water. On average the membrane will last several thousand gallons. The membrane should have a rejection rate of 99% which means if the numbers (after flushing) are above 1-3% of your source water it is a good idea to change (typically between 1-10 TDS) The Sediment filter, Carbon Block and DI resin will need to be changed much more often typically 6 months to 1 year. The DI resin can be changed when the color is yellow or the TDS coming out is above 0. The Carbon Block and Sediment filter will be difficult to tell however if the pressure drops it will need to be changed as well as the sediment filter will change colors when it removes quite a bit of larger particles.

Thank for all Infomation I've learned from watching your channel
This will not cuase any harm! As long as the system is run weekly with water flowing through it will work great! You do not want to store the unit for extended periods as the filters may deplete when dried. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The 150 GPD unitl will have two 75 GPD membranes. The flow restrictor will be the same Flow 550 as with the standard 75 GPD membrane as the water will flow through both membranes in series causing the restriction to be the same amount. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This Unit will include the membrane flush valve on the waste water line. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Currently running: sediment filter, activated carbon, chloramines carbon block, 2x serial RO, single DI stage.
Ideally the best filter change will be the 5 stage universal replacement kit. This will have a single sediment, two 1 micron carbon blocks (Ideal for chloramine removal) and a DI resin bag. I have included the link below. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
You can place two 150 GPD membrane in the housings, you will want increased pressure a minimum of around 65-70 PSI. In addition to the membrane you will need to replace the flow restrictor from one rated for the 75 GPD (550mL) to a larger 150 (800mL) Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
If you PSI rating is below 50 a booster pump would be recommended.
This system will require 50psi to run efficiently, the unit will ship with everything that is pictured on the website. This unfortunately does not include a pressurized canister or a booster pump, these can however be purchased separately if needed. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
it is recommended to use soft water to run into the RO system. This will help to preserve the life of the membrane longer. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
However, when I turn the black flush valve to the angled position, my water pressure increases to 65psi, so I assume this is not flushing, correct?
This unit will come with all filters included and ready to run! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
For a standard RO system you will want the booster pump kit. This works with 1/4" tubing standard on most RO units. This will increase your pressure to an optimal range which works for your system. I have included a link below!
The 150GPD upgrade kit is a second 75 GPD membrane to add to your existing unit. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Also, generally speaking, how many gallons is a single canister of DI resin good for and what assumed TDS input is that based on?
There are many reasons for non 0 readings. Ensure that the membrane and filters are new and not depleted. Additionally proper flushing of the membrane will need to occur before and after each use. For troubleshooting please contact our customer support team via email or phones!
we have a few models available. The best for Chloramines is the 6 stage universal replacement in the link below. The other models are typically older versions and will not be quite as effective at removing chloramines. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Our Reefing RODI systems do not include a reservoir as they can be installed on many variety of DIY storage containers for mixing RO and Saltwater. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The unit will come with all filters pre-installed as well as the installation components. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Unfortunately the RO/DI systems we have with TDS meter, Pressure gauge and membrane flush valve are not NSF certified. We cannot recommend using not NSF certified components with drinking water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
All BRS RO/DI systems reflect the latest in reverse osmosis technology with updated filters, components and design updates.
Value systems:Designed to treat for chlorine, low volume chloramine usage and most well water*. Value systems are compact, portable, upgradeable and most importantly affordable.
Universal systems: Designed to be best in industry filtration for chloramines, chlorine and well water as well as cover the widest array of contaminates. This is the ideal solution if you simply want to know you have the best filtration available.
*If you are unsure if your city uses chlorine or chloramines you can use a LaMotte Insta-Test Free & Total Chlorine & Chloramine Test Strip or call your city's water treatment facility. If you don't want to bother with that, get the Universal system and know you are covered. Over 40% of municipal water supplies are now treated with hard to remove chloramines. This number is growing everyday so we recommend to the Unversal systems. If you select a Value system today, it is future proof and fully upgradeable. We offer Value to Universal Upgrade Kits which are super easy to install.

- Includes Total and Free Chlorine test strips to help identify if your city is using chlorine or chloramines
- Limited Lifetime Warranty which includes unlimited support via chat, phone or email with our WQA certified customer service staff
- Side mounted dual DI stages which allow for TDS testing between each stage.
- Dimensions - 16" x 6.25" x 18" (RO bracket) / 10" x 6.25" x 14" (DI bracket)
- Minimum Water Pressure - 65 PSI
- Max Water Pressure - 90 PSI
- Recommended Water Temperature - 77°F
- Recommended Max TDS - <200ppm
Water pressure can be increased by adding a booster pump before your RO/DI system if a pressure increase is required. Low pressure will cause slow production of product water, with excess production of waste water. Pressure over 90 PSI may cause damage to the RO/DI units filters and components.

Best of the best By Donnie on 4/7/2017Donnie would recommend this product to a friendThis is amazing! I finally got something worth what I paid for. The water I've been buying had 9 TDS. This Universal water saver RO/DI is a beast!! My water TDS is 0! What a difference. I was hope for a little difference but got the best surprise ever! Thankyou BRS for your outstanding products.
Awesome.... nuff said? By Joseph on 3/12/2017Joseph would recommend this product to a friendAs can be seen, by all of the other reviews this is a great product. Easy to use, easy to set up, and well built. Nothing feels cheap or that it might break anytime soon. I have been very happy with this RO/DI unit. I would highly recommend it to anyone tired of making trips to the LFS or wanting the peace of mind that the water they are putting into their tank is clean and pure. Thanks BRS!
Must have By Chris on 3/9/2017Chris would recommend this product to a friendGreat product. Definitely a upgrade from previous equipment.
High Quality Product By Adam on 2/27/2017Adam would recommend this product to a friendI have been looking for a RODI system for some time. Lots of cheaper options available, but they are not built for chloramines and only filter to 5 microns. I am VERY HAPPY I spent the extra money and purchased the RODI unit from BRS. Shipping was on time, the unit was securely packaged and in great shape. This RODI unit is build like a tank! Clearly this is a quality product.
All the instructions and adaptor pieces were included. I am very happy with this unit, and I can't wait to start producing water.
Fantastic Product... By Gerry on 2/24/2017Gerry would recommend this product to a friendReefer of 30+ years here. Just getting back into the hobby. Wish I had this quality of product back then. Fabricated with very high grade materials. Robust, efficient design which produces quality high grade water. My City uses Chloramines in our water, but the BRS RO/DI unit eliminated all traces of said contaminants rendering pure H2O for my reef inhabitants. I can even see them smiling. Keep up the great work BRS. You guys rock.
Great rodi By Christopher on 2/22/2017Christopher would recommend this product to a friendHave been using for over a year now and works flawlessly comes with everything you need to hook up to almost any water source
excellant RO-DI !!!!!!!!! By TURTLE on 2/18/2017TURTLE would recommend this product to a friendTHE BEST UNIT I HAVE EVER USED---- i OWN AN AQUARIUM BS. AND MAKE 250-400 gal weekly
Another Home Run for BRS By William on 2/18/2017William would recommend this product to a friendI've been avoiding spending the money on the big boy water saver plus 150, but I finally did it. I grew tired of waiting on our small RO system under our kitchen sink, because it moves water at a glacial pace. So, I finally bit the bullet and I am extremely impressed with the build quality, ease of installation as well as the flow. Our county water system doesn't even have chloramines, but the DI resin is a bit of extra security for me. Great Product and it's worth every penny.
Must have By Jimmy on 1/30/2017Jimmy would recommend this product to a friendGreat product. love the quality of water this produces. only negative is that it took 2 days to fill my system.
Great System By Zachariah on 1/27/2017Zachariah would recommend this product to a friendEverything I want/need for perfect water. All of the housings and connections are high quality. Pressure gauge, TDS meter and flush valve are icing on the cake.
Excellent product By Brian on 1/19/2017Brian would recommend this product to a friendSeems very well built. Installation was straight forward and was able to set up my new tank with this no problems.
Excellent value and performance By Christopher on 1/19/2017Christopher would recommend this product to a friendI really enjoy this RO/DI, I think it is my favorite over previous unit. To improve on this, I have added a pressure gage between the carbon filter and RO membranes, which lets me monitor pressure loss through the sediment and carbon filters. I have also added an inline TDS meter on the pre-RO water and the RO waste. I can compare the pre-RO water to the included TDS channel 1 and determine my RO removal efficiency. Also, from the TDS of incoming water, waste water and post-RO/pre-DI, I can calculate my RO waste ratio. Finally, I added a waste line and valve off my RO to prevent TDS creep from wasting my DI resin so rapidly. It is disappointing that after 20 years in this hobby and everyone still pushes auto flush valves on their RO units but no one makes an auto waste valve for the RO.
