MAXIMIZES EFFECTIVENESS – Increase the effectiveness of your unit, this booster pump for reverse osmosis water systems can reduce waste water by up to 65%. It can also help decrease resin consumption and increase membrane life.

EASY TO INSTALL – Buddie Fit press-fittings make it easy to plumb the tubing into the existing RO system. The increased pressure can significantly increase water output and your unit will run even better with the pressure boosted to 80 psi or higher. The Smart Buddie booster pump is quiet, easy to install, and can significantly increase water output. Reverse osmosis is a pressure-driven process. Small residential RO units will theoretically operate on very low pressure--down to 35 psi--but the reality is you won't get a lot of water and the product water quality may be compromised if the unit runs below 45 psi. RO units typically run well on municipal water pressure of 60 psi, but they run even better with a small pump to boost the pressure to 80 psi or higher. The increased pressure will also improve the economy of the unit (it will run less reject water) as well as the quality of the water. RO units thrive on pressure! The unit will boost the incoming pressure to around 90PSI and as long as you have enough water volume it will work for a unit up to 100GPD. As for the mentioned leaks we have found a few possible reasons, some do not push the tubing into the connectors enough. The o-ring in the fittings require the tube to be pushed past the o-ring to seal around the tube. We call this the "double push", first it stops at the o-ring and then it stops when it goes past the o-ring. Another has been how the tubing is cut, using scissors will crease the tube in most cases and not seal around the o-ring in the fitting correctly. We suggest a razor blade that will make a nice clean cut. The other could be a bad fitting but we have seen very few of these. I'm not sure there is a pro or con to either way. I think it has more to do with the TDS creep across the membrane and how often its turned on and off through out the day. I have found that the RODI unit will have the initially higher than normal reading after each start up regardless if flushed or not. What I do is actually limit my production to longer batches. So I either use a timer to turn the unit on and off a single time per day or I use a count down timer to operate the unit with a specified duration. I noticed that by restricting the waste line output that outputs from the Smart Buddie, the pressure increases dramatically (as does the rate of clean water produced, ~13 mins to fill a 1 gal milk jug, and up to 4 bar (60 psi). I have additionally made sure that both RO membranes are deeply seated, and within the Smart Buddie manual, I am basically using Configuration G.

How does it work?

You are correct, you would want to remove the ASO from the RO unit. It will cause problems with the smart buddie if left installed.

So if you used your auto top off with a timer and only for a short period of time once per day you would produce a single long production of RODI water and not have the unit turning on and off multiple times per day. Or if you put the Smart Buddie on a timer you would be able to have the unit flush like you want each time and only produce once per day for a longer run and have the auto top off stop the Smart Buddie when full. As a feeder, the Wasserstein case is sturdy and big enough that I often found more than one bird chowing down. It holds a little under 2 quarts of seed, so it’s slightly larger than the Bird Buddy. The seed can be easily loaded by removing the roof and pouring it in. (You can also opt to just fill the feeder tray, but you will find yourself refilling often, depending on the traffic.) If you want to give it a little wipe in between feedings, we recommend taking it apart and using bleach, but Wasserstein also says you can use a mixture of soap, water, and vinegar. Further reading Getting a pump for your RO system is a great way to make the most out of it. Saving you a bit more water and producing you even more. The high pressure switch turns off the booster pump if the filtered water pressure is greater than 33.35 PSI, prolonging the life of the pump.

Reverse osmosis booster pumps can easily increase the pressure going into your RO or RO/DI system if your starting pressure is low. Reverse osmosis is a pressure-driven process. Small residential RO units will theoretically operate below 50psi, but the reality is you won't get a lot of water and the product water quality may be compromised if the unit runs below 45 psi. RO units typically run well on municipal water pressure of 60 psi, but they run even better with a small pump to boost the pressure to 80 psi or slightly higher. This will increase efficiency as well as the rate of production, and can also potentially decrease consumption of DI resin. Get maximum output and the best quality filtered water from your RO system! The Smart Buddie Booster Pump includes an internal automatic flush valve that flushes the membrane for 18 seconds every time the unit is activated. Flushing clears debris build-up on the membrane, and is critical to obtaining peak performance from the RO unit. After flushing filtered water production will begin. Not typically aquarium RO units, the Smart Buddie attaches well to them. I have problems with residential units that have built in ASO and components that can not be removed. The Bird Buddy’s battery lasted about a week on a charge; your time will vary based on how many birds show up at the feeder, and how often you use the live view. You get a warning in the app when the battery is low, but I recommend splurging for the solar panel roof to spare yourself the trouble of having to recharge it manually. Bird Buddy review: Verdict
