It is a multistage Tonkaflow Pump direct driven by a 1 HP Baldor Motor. The only purpose of that specific pump is to increase the pressure & flow through the Cellulose Acetate Membrane during RO water make up to the 90 gallon RO storage tank. It was part of Specialty Equipment's original Spot Free Set Up.Not sure what you mean about that booster pump.
Any thoughts on the multistage pump ... I am thinking that Specialty did not need to use that specific "extremely hard to get expensive pump" to force the approximately 60 PSI city water through the RO membrane. Maybe the more common 4x40 inches membranes that require charcoal filtering of chlorine could get by with a smaller pump???
Another pump which has nothing to do with the GAC is what pressures out to the bays ... the original (another multistage pump) was successfully replaced with a Procon Pump that goes out to up to 6 self service bays from the 90 gallon storage tank. BTW ... not as powerful as Mep01's hi pressure-more volume solution going out to his SS bays.
