Need a good RO/DI unit recommendation

I am getting fed up with the amount of diatoms i am getting from all my local LFS's "ro" water, so I have decided I need to get my own unit. I think I prefer a 75-100 GPD unit.

Second on the BRS units. I have the 5 stage plus model that I got for $175 during a group buy. 75gpd and zero TDS. It can be upgraded to 150gpd for $50.

Is there absolutely anything else I will need if I buy this one?

A float valve to stop the flow when your container is full (the unit already has the auto shut off kit).

How does it connect to a sink? Do I need any other connectors?

It comes with sink adapters. Check the BRSTv channel on Youtube and they go over everything that it comes with, how to hook it up, etc.

Just bought the same one. My first ro unit and from what I've read about BRS I won't be disappointed. Great unit for the price
