Hi, first time using a fancy RODI machine. got a few questions:

1) I bought the 180gal Maxcap 2:1 unit. It does not come with a boost pump. My house water line runs at 60 psi now. Do you think a booster pump is needed? what will it help? does it produce water faster?

2) Does the unit come with cartridges when buying brand new? or need to buy a whole set of refills?

thanks!

m0nkie,

60 PSI is perfectly adequate. We test the system exactly at 60 psi, and systems such as this should not be run higher than 75 PSI. A booster pump would not be worth the investment for a 15 PSI gain. However, for the same price you could purchase a dual float assembly. This will automate your system in a proper way. Making larger batches will allow your DI cartridges to last much longer.

You can find more info about the product at this link, and here is the manual below. You will find the info you need on pages 17-19

The system will come with the filters, wrench, tubing, garden hose adapter, float, flush valve, automatic shut-off valve, optional 2:1 flow restrictor, and 2 hardness test strips.

Jeremy,

thanks. I bought the Maxcap and an additional set of cartridges. But I only received 1 set inside the RODI unit, no replacement. I think you guys forgot to mail my cartridges.

Who should I contact for that?

Invoice Number: 18694

Total paid: $574.44 for 180gal auto flush maxcap + refill

email: [email protected]

thanks!

We will be sending the second set immediately. We do apologize for the mix-up!
