This past weekend I installed my 100 GPD RO/DI unit that I had laying around for my FOWLR tank. Typically I store water and treat it, however looking to add a Reef tank in the future so figure it was time to install the new system and start using it to get the bugs out. When I had it installed in the last house, I did not have any issues with water pressure, however in the new house it is. It took a significant amount of time to partially fill a 32 gallon can. Also the pressure gauge showed that it was not even in the correct zone (which is bad for the system).
<br>I picked up the Smart Buddie RO Booster Pump and installed it. Honestly the directions could have been a little better and the installation video on this site helped. Honestly you need both to help make sense of the hookup (especially for a DI). For example the video does not show the check valve being installed which the directions requires it to work effectively. After the install I ran the system and was very happy with the results. I had wonderful pressure and processed water. Was able to fill the can within a very short amount of time. The pump is quite and seems to control everything. The only thing I wish is that it has some type of display to help regulate what is going on or water processing, quality, etc.
<br>However generally speaking very happy so far with the unit.
