So what are you doing differently from the last set up? Are you taking this as an opportunity to improve anything?

So final touch on the setup is getting CarX online and tuck that under the stand, where in the past I had them outside next to the frag stand. It was an eye sore. And my stand couldn’t accommodate 20lb co2 tank.

beefed up RODI is full online too, waste water goes to the backyard brutes, i have 3/50g for holding and connected together. Will use those for plants and other stuff. turns out i dont need a booster pump since my water have 50+ psi all the time. maybe add it after produce water so it pulls out water faster?

  1. move Carx under stand ✓
  2. better cable management
  3. better location for apex
  4. beef up rodi ✓
  5. save waste water from rodi ✓
  6. improving water flow for frag tank and display tank
  7. separate return pump for DT and FT ✓
  8. improve stand design for Frag tanks ✓
  9. add RODI feed to SW mix brute with float valve ✓
Those that has '✓' is what i have accomplished.

I'm sure there are more, but I couldn't think of it at the moment. but those are the action items ontop of my mind.

I had 38 psi and put on a booster. It goes up to 90 psi now and it makes water so fast. I’ll never go back. You also should have less waste water ratio I believe and cleaner out of the membrane. Either way the speed it makes water is worth it.

Where do you place the booster

My pressure is about 55 psi and my double membrane RO/DI works well within specifications without a booster. I understand the logic for boosting the pressure, and actually had purchased a booster. But in the end I didn’t want extra complexity, extra fittings, more failure points, more noise, etc, to try to improve something already working well. You might want to try it out and run the numbers to see if it’s working well without. You can easily add it later.
