    when i had a recent booster pump i attatched it just after my main water source coming from main tap,

    then going into RO via a 1/2 inch hosepipe.

    looking on youtube they all have them installed going into membrane from the last vessel

    all using 1/4 in. RO tubing.

    is there a right way to this .

    this is my normal set-up now. water from DI vessel going outside into water butt. 20150216_172029.jpg 20150216_172047.jpg 20150216_172107.jpg 20150216_172029.jpg 20150216_172047.jpg

    what is the recomended way to install a booster pump correctly, is it preffered with RO tubing,
    i use a 1/2 inch hosepipe going into RO to give it a better pressure with water going into RO.

    what is the big difference with these booster pumps,
    collins water products @£49.99
    purefreedom @£99

    better reviews for the purefreedom ones.

    £50 difference

    If you upgrade to say a 4021 or larger 4040 ro at a later date none of those booster pumps would be suitable for those size ro's. Then it will cost even more for a decent booster pump.

    I have the booster plumbed in between the prefilter(s) and the RO membranes

    I tried adjusting size of tube into the booster, but no real difference, so 1/4" is fine
