150GPD 5-stage system with Booster Pump - $299 + $35 shipping
RO/DI systems are shipped with Direct Signature Required!
The booster pump turns on automatically when water is being produced, and shuts off when you close the RO or DI ball valve (both must be closed). Once the system pressurizes, everything is silent until you need it again. This system does make sound, which I would compare to the sound of filling up the ice maker in your refrigerator. The sound will probably help you remember to shut it off and avoid those accidental floods we sometimes cause.
150 gallons per day equals 6.25 gallons per hour. When testing, I was able to collect 5 gallons of water in 35 minutes flat! Your water conditions may not match mine, thus results will vary. The membrane's lifespan is rated 1-5 years, depending on water conditions and usage.
The 150gpd membrane, all the filters, the add-on DI section, the booster pump, a dual-inline TDS meter, a pressure guage, wall brackets, tee fittings, ball valves, filter housing wrench, various source water & drain connections, and tubing. If you want longer tubing, you can purchase this at your local hardware store (look for icemaker tubing), or ask me when ordering. (Hose bib connection can be purchased separately)
Installation is simple, and takes about 10 - 20 minutes. This system is 16" wide, 9" deep, 19" tall, not including the separate DI section. You have to have a nearby plug for the 110v booster pump. It comes on automatically when making water, and after you close the ball valve of the RO or DI line, the system pressurizes and becomes silent. The booster pump shuts off simultaneously with that silence.
This product, like the one I've been selling for years, will allow you to make drinking water and RO/DI water for your reef. This setup would be good for people with well-water, with larger tanks, and with a tank-maintenance business. With the higher PSI pressure, the membrane will be more efficient: low TDS coming out of the RO membrane; production rates will be faster; and waste water should be lessened. (3:1 waste ratio)
I am very impressed with this system, and am very happy to be offering it to my customers.
