Water Production - Booster Pump & Membrane


Recommended Posts

Hi All.

Any idea which is the best membrane that can be run with a booster pump to give the highest pure production as possible? 

Any info/suggestions appreciated. Thank you

Film tech are supposed to be some of the best membrains on the market I believe but it will depend on your set up what you need . Speak to a filtration specialist like Doug at daqua .

Im actually on Daqua at the moment, they seem to have some great stuff on there. I will have a look at film tech. Thanks @Pjj

Unless you use more than 1000l a day or your static water pressure is less than 40psi,dont need a booster pump or expensive membranes

All ro membranes work better with a pressure  of 80-100 psi and will produce much more consistent water quality,, especially if using 4040 , and twin ros

I have been told I have a 4020 or 4021 RO System in my van. What's the difference between 4040 and 4020? cheers

Currently using between 1500L - 2000L per day. Water psi is shocking, haven't had a pressure gauge on it but I'm certain its less than 40psi

With twin RO's would I need a booster pump of say 160psi to run the both RO's at 80psi?

 

Would it be set up so there is a tee piece splitting from the main water feed sent into both RO's at the same time? If so would this not reduce the water flow?

 

Any info on this would be most appreciated as I would look into building this if it will give me a higher pure production rate

I have twin 4040 ros on my set up with an 800 ltr per hour booster pump fitted by Grippatank, Ime not sure how it’s plumbed there is loads of hoses all black haven’t got a clue what’s what with it tk be honest but it works a treat , I believe the booster is 100 psi ?. I produce 1000 ltr of pure in two hours .

I will have a look at the system now and see if i can work out how its fitted, i think this probably will be the way forward as 500ltrs ph will be more than good enough. Many thanks for your help. I appreciate it

Give Oliver a ring at Grippatank Ime sure he could explain  it to you and offer some helpful  advice

Maybe but low pressure ones work fine on static pressure and produce as much as I need so why use something you don't need would be my question.
