The Aquatec ERP-1000 Permeate Pump is a non-electrical, energy-saving device which dramatically improves RO system efficiency. It utilizes a turbine pump that uses the pressure of the waste water to pump the product drinking water into the storage tank. This protects the membrane from the back flow pressure of the tank, maintaining maximum osmotic pressure at all times. It is great for low pressure applications and is effective for inlet water pressures as low as 30 PSI. The Aquatec ERP-1000 Permeate Pump increases product tank pressure and helps to decrease waste water by up to 50%. The pump comes with installation instructions and it is quick and easy to install, utilizing 1/4-inch quick connect fittings. The Aquatec ERP-1000 permeate pump is designed for undersink reverse osmosis units and uses the hydro power of the brine (or waste water) to pump the permeate (or product water) into the storage tank.
The most popular permeate pump on the market and designed to be used with systems rated at 100 GPD or less
Reduces back pressure from the tank, maximizing system efficiency and water purity
Hydraulically powered, uses the pressure created from the waste water, eliminating the need for electricity
Provides dramatic improvement on homes with 35-45 psi, and marked improvement in any situation
Non-electric pump improves system performance, decreases waste water, and increases tank storage capacity
Reverse osmosis requires a minimum of 40 psi to function correctly, and a pressure of 60-80 psi is ideal for best performance. Typically electric booster pumps are the solution, but the non-electric permeate pump provides a low cost alternative for borderline pressure (35 psi) and increases efficiency, even with higher incoming pressure.
By using hydraulic pressure generated by the waste water, this system relieves back pressure from the tank, reducing the amount of waste water produced.
