    Hey Tom, Just wait what I might put you through when I decide to add the second membrane. You ain't been through nothin' yet.

    Tom, I wanted to wait to change out my filters until my new filter, canister and clip came in but my pressure kept slowly droping. I replaced them and removed the asv and my pressure went back up to near 65. I feel much better.

    I decided to tackle installing the up-grade kit and was shocked to find that my unit did not come with a flow restricter. I had never noticed before. Do I need it? Should I order one right away? It seems to be working fine without it.

    I guess you should have one but it needs to be sized to the GPD you are making so with the upgrade you should be looking for a 150GPD restrictor . I don't exactly understand the purpose of them but know my BRS unit came with one . Now I need to check if I upgraded mine when I went from 75 to 150GPD !
    Do you totally shut off the water to your unit ? If you don't I would put the auto shut off back on or the system will pass water non stop ?
    I guess if you don't have float valves then you turn water on and off. I have float valves in my barrels so need the ASV .

    BRS shows the 150 in their video about installing the upgrade kit so that's right for you and what I need to buy. I do totally shut it off. I'm home all the time and I can see how full the barrells are getting. I connected a T to the waste water line so I can run water either to my 250 gallon containers or to the woods. Each line has a shut off valve. I waste as little water as possible but a lot still goes to the woods. That's why I yearn for less waste.

    Guess what, Tom? Thanks to you I was able to advise someone on another forum about his RO unit! Imagine that?
