Jist like it says I’m looking for a booster pump. Let me know what you have and what you want for it.
Did you ever Get one?
If so, lemme know how well it works. I saw a bunch of different, less expensive ones on ebay FYI
I picked up an Aquatec DP 8800 with power adapter for $105 on ebay, it works very well. Took my 35psi water pressure to 95psi, worth every penny.

Welcome to the site!!! :Welcome) thanks I did get 1 that was used at the swap. It was sold to me as a working unit. So I got it home and plugged it in and guess what??? It doesn’t work!!!grrrr! So I’m trying to get the guy I bought it from to pay to fix it.
Sorry to hijack HJack
I’m looking for a pump too. Figured I’d check before I drop $150 at BRS…
Thats what I am Going to do
Is there a club discount with BRS? I’ll buy enough to get the free shipping, but every bit helps
This is where I purchased mine: www.ebay.com/itm/AQUATEC-CDP-8800-high-flow-booster-pump-transformer-3-8-1-4-RO-Water-system-/380813926128
A bit cheaper than BRS.
Thanks! It is a bit cheaper, but does not include the pressure switch. That same company has a listing for a complete setup:
Aquatech 8800 booster
All for $120 shipped. I think I’m going to jump on that.
Great find just ordered mine!
HoBoJo, don’t think running your RO unit at that pressure is recommended, but just check anyway.
What is the recommended pressure for optimum production
A little research I found people saying not over 80psi, and some saying 100psi was safe. I sent an email to BRS to ask what they recommend on their systems, I’ll report back.
Thats kinda what I heard too bit nothing concrete
I think these pumps will only give you about an extra 20 psi. I’ve always heard between 60 and 80 psi is the zone you want to shoot for.
Will be here monday

Thanks for the tip I contacted BRS for some info and as always they were prompt and helpful.
Per BRS: We do recommend staying below 80 psi as once you get to higher pressures the water will travel through the carbon blocks to quickly. We would recommend turning it down to 65-75 psi.
Your welcome, I have my unit set to run at 65 psi with a booster pump and has been working that way for years now.
Mine’s scheduled to get here Friday. Woot woot!
Now i need to actually plumb a line in that I can hook the system up to…where’s my hacksaw!?
Did yours come with a check valve? I don’t think mine did and it won’t shut off automatically and stay off because the pressure back flows…
