Clean water out of the tap By Victoria on 3/20/2016Victoria would recommend this product to a friendLove having this add on easy to hook up to my brs 150 gallon system. no more trips to the store to buy drinking water!
no conplaints By Kevin on 2/16/2016Kevin would recommend this product to a friendI one of those crazy anti-fluoride people! This tank was easy to hook up to my RO unit and refrigerator for drinking water. I have to refill about twice a week for two people's drinking water and ice cubes.
Great Add-On for the BRS RO/DI system By Kerry on 8/20/2015Kerry would recommend this product to a friendRan tubing around the house...we now have purified drinking water at the frig ice maker and water tap, as well as at the kitchen sink for coffee. Happy wife, happy life :)
Excellent Quality (As Always) By Reggie on 3/23/2015Reggie would recommend this product to a friendI recently installed this add-on for my RO/DI System (also from BRS) and I'll admit, I was tempted to cheap out or buy the components locally rather than waiting for delivery from BRS, but I am SO glad that I didn't! I love the quality of the parts sent with BRS products, the installation was a snap! My one hesitation when it came to buying this kit had been a fear that low water pressure from the tank was simply inherent with this type of system, and I'll admit, I'm a bit impatient. Well, let me tell you, the pressure I receive is AMAZING! It's nearly as fast filling containers with RO water as it is with my tap water.
If you are considering this add-on, I highly recommend it!
Great Water - Small Leak - Easy Fix By Frank on 1/19/2015Frank would recommend this product to a friendThis system is great. No taste issues reported by other users and was easy to install. I would suggest two things. First, include a small amount of Teflon Tape. The metal to plastic unions on both the storage tank and the faucet are likely to slowly drip without it and I'm told it's standard practice to use whenever joining plastic to metal, especially male metal to female plastic. Second, Any reefers adding this on to their reef RO/DI instead of having a separate system should probably get a three way valve to facilitate switching between.
Too good to be true By Cresley on 9/16/2014Cresley would recommend this product to a friendI had to get this. It is how I got the wife to agree to a water filter for my tank.
It was very easy to install. The water taste so much better than the regular tap.
Now the wife wants me to run the water over the frig. My job is never done.
Offensive odor and taste associated with the storage tank By Joel on 9/15/2014Joel wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis kit seems great on paper, but when the water in the tank sits within, the water becomes contaminated. The water from the tank emits a foul odor, and has an unclean taste. When the system is bypassed, the water tastes and smells as it should. BRS suggested that I buy another filter to run post-storage tank. This seems ridiculous to send water through the RODI to clean the water, have it sit in a storage tank, and then have to clean it again. And if this is a viable solution, why don't you offer this as part of your add-on faucet kit. Upon doing a little research online, this seems to be a common problem with the PA-E reverse osmosis tank. When I informed BRS of this problem and requested a refund, they said that I couldn't return a used item. I'm thoroughly displeased with the whole affair.
Easy Install and cheaper then other add on units on the market By John on 8/13/2014John would recommend this product to a friendSee Review on BRS 6 STAGE CHLORAMINES DELUXE RO/DI SYSTEM - 75GPD
Easy to install, great quality By Rick on 4/18/2014Rick would recommend this product to a friendWe are in well water that doesnt taste very good so we added this system to pure rodi unit and plumbed in into the refrigerator and were amazed on the difference it made. We run filters sediment and carbon coming into the house and one on the refrigerator and this is night and day different. I wish we had done this a year ago now. Installation was quick and easy. Parts were all high quality and worked well together.
Great excuse for the wife! By Mark on 2/11/2014Mark would recommend this product to a friendGot this add-on kit to justify to my wifey to get the RO/DI system! Easy to hook up, and have not had to change the filters for 2 years now. Make sure you have space for the tank (I have it under the kitchen sink). The 5 gallon tank doesn't actually hold 5 gallons, more like 3 at most, but may be partially related to my water pressure which is about 45 psi.
Great Add-on By Steve on 1/26/2014Steve would recommend this product to a friendI had to justify the purchase of an RO/DI system with my spouse - this add-on did the trick!
Overall a very good value and the instructions made the installation fairly easy.
One of the other reviewers knock it for an 'air gap faucet' - my purchase (1/10/14) came with a different kind of faucet that is silent and seems to work better. I think BRS has updated this.
It has taken a while for a plastic taste to get out of the water, I'm not sure if that is due to the tubing or pressurized tank. The way this connects to the BRS RO/DI system is impressive - you can tell BRS tried to make this installation as intuitive as possible.
Would buy again! Thanks BRS!
a great kit, easy to install but use tap to avoid leak for the tank. By chen yang on 3/30/2013chen yang would recommend this product to a friendagain i love what brs is doing. they provide easy instruction and solution for reefers. other online retailers sell these things seperately and with no instructions this is a good kit. easy to install. one thing to note: my pressureized tank was leaking so i have to use those seal tape thing to solve the leaking problem. so i would suggest brs include a small piece of tape in the future. its been a month now but the tank's water still has this greasy oil smell in the water. i dont know how to get rid of it so i didnt drink from the pressurized tank yet.

We are unfortunately not aware of a way to add elements back in on our current units. This may be done with a re-mineralization filter or something along those lines however is not an item we would have available.
The tank has a diameter of 10" and with adapter is 15" high. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Its generally not recommended to drink DI water as it may be "too pure". Drinking RO only water is recommended, hence the bypass.
The Add on Faucet kit and easily be added onto existing RO units by connecting to the product water line coming out of the unit. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
You certainly can add on the 150 gpd upgrade kit however if used in conjunction with an RO pressurized tank the waste ratio will eventually equalize back to around 4:1 so this negates the positive impact of reducing waste water. This still will increase production however. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I have included a link below to video instructions. The RO water will be Tee'd off just as you described then run to the check vale, after the check valve the water will Tee again with one side connecting to the pressurized tank via the tank adapter and the other side to the faucet. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Thats not a problem, just mention in your order comments (stage 2 of checkout) that you want the nickel and wed be happy to swap it out for you.
