The Aquatec 8800 is one great water booster pump kit in the market and it’s quite identical to the 6800 kit which is another best booster pump kit from Aquatec.
The 8800 is designed to effectively raise water supply pressure and optimize the performance of an RO system.
One of the things that stand out from this pump is that it features a heavy-duty 110V transformer which is the secret to its powerful and reliable performance.
The pump can raise the water supply pressure from 30 to 40 psi up to 100 psi based on the capacity of the RO system but it’s designed to work even much better with RO units that produce around 50 to 200 gallons of water per day.
This pump kit also includes a reliable pressure switch which facilitates automatic on/off operation.
It can sense the pressure within the output line such that when the storage tank is filled or its pressure reaches 40 to 50 psi, then the pump will automatically shut off and resume operation when you draw water from the tank or when the pressure drops.
When it comes to installation, you will have no difficulties at all. This is a standard RO booster pump kit that’s good for either 3/8” or ¼” OD tubing. It, however, has 3/8” ports but Aquetec has included four 3/8” to ¼” reducer fittings.
Unlike other pumps that often feature a plastic mounting bracket, this comes with a heavy-duty steel bracket which is not just much stronger but also longer lasting.
If your water supply pressure is very low (less than 50 psi), then this pump kit is a perfect choice to help boost it up. It will work fine with most standard RO systems.
Note that the kit doesn’t feature a shutoff valve, thereby you will have to rely on your existing RO auto-shutoff valve to turn off the supply of water to the storage tank when it’s full.
