Inside the Smart Buddie Booster Pump – Turbo Charge your RO System!
- 03 Jan, 2019
A look into the Aquatic Life Smart Buddie Booster Pump internal components.
The internal booster pump is located under the top switches.
The Smart Buddie was designed to boost the supply water pressure in all standard RO or RODI units ranging from 50 to 100 gallon per day. 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 typical boosted pressure is 80-100 PSI.
• Low pressure switch activates in the 4.35 – 7.25 PSI range
• High pressure switch activates in the 33.35 – 36.25 PSI range
