View Full Version : Noise from rodi unit with booster pump on?

04/16/2010, 07:53 AM
I just hooked up the aquatech 8800 booster pump to my buckeye 75 premium system to get the pressure up from 30 psi. Everything is working great except when the pressure gets above 70psi. There is a noise (sounds like water being forced through) from either the ro housing or the flow restrictor. Is this normal and can I turn the pressure up a bit more?

Yes - turn it up to between 85 and 90 psi.

Not certain what you are hearing other than maybe a sound generated by the water moving under higher pressure.

The sound that I am hearding does sound like water under high pressure moving through a small opening, maybe the flow resrtictor. I start to hear it when the pressure hits about 70psi. Is this noise normal and is there any harm being done?

Not normal - but there is nothing in the system that would be harmed by those water pressures.
