RO/DI System Booster Pump Users...

1. What was your PSI that prompted the pump addition?
2. Significant improvement?
3. Any recommendation on where to buy (and ballpark cost as they seem quite expensive)?

I know several guys who have them and they all had around 35-40 psi. Production has improved greatly and they use less DI resin with the booster pump. Lasts longer....
Not sure where some got them, it was off the internet..... Do a google search. I know one guy got his at airwaterice.com.

I got my RO/DI from Aquasafe Canada and I bought the pump at the same time from them. I would check around though.

I tried to add a kill switch from AquaFX to stop the pump when a certain pressure was seen and I never could get it to work. I have seen boosters sell pretty cheap on Ebay sometimes too.

I think my pressure was no more than 30. I could leave it on all night and not fill a 5 gal jug. It takes a few hours now to fill it.
