AquaFX Booster Pump (mfg# BPAQUAFX)
I've had a RO/DI unit for a couple of years and put off getting a booster pump just because everything seemed to be functioning "good enough." Made some recent upgrades, adding an auto shutoff etc, and was having trouble with it shutting off properly. After doing some reading, I realized my water pressure was probably the issue, and decided to spring for the booster pump since there were also other benefits (RO membrane longevity, faster water production). Pressure was at 40, now it's at the recommended 80 (it will go higher, but I'm bleeding it off through the flush valve to bring it down to a safe level). Auto shutoff is working properly, water production is up to membrane spec, and the booster itself shuts off when not in use. Wish it wasn't so expensive, but I'm not at all sorry I got it - so far I'm really pleased with it. Also, I find it to be very quiet when running.

So far works great. Best deal I found online
I just wanted to boost up my pressure on my RODI for maximum production. I didn't really need it because my home water supply was already at 62psi but since I have the BRS 150gpd RO water saver upgrade, it wouldn't hurt to have 80psi. I was kind of stressed when I installed it and my pressure went up to over 100psi. But thankfully there is an adjustment screw on the top of the unit that allowed me to lower it to a stable 75psi. Now my 6 stage 150gpd RODI is producing at Max Performance. I love the fact that it came with an auto shut off. This works in conjuction with my units auto shut off. It does vibrate and makes a little noise, but my unit is installed in the laundry room where the noise does not bother anyone. I installed it the way they show you on their YouTube channel, not like the included instructions.

Easy to install
Saves me 30 minutes per 5 gallon. Use to take an hour to produce 5 gallon.

Works as intended - Loud
So I just got this pump in and it works as intended. Printed instructions were different than the video instructions on the product page. The pump is strong, like stong enough to make the bathroom floor vibrate . Took the pump off and you could still feel/hear the vibration. Going to have to make a mount to absorb the vibration from the pump and what it pushes out to the ro unit.
