Default 4x21

New to the ro thing so bear with me,I was given a ss 4x21 membrane housing.Would the 8800 pump work with this single
housing ? I see they are using 2 and 3 400 gpd membranes thinking this would be about the same ?Have 40 taps as of now could do another
10 to 15 but without a ro its not likely,what are your thoughts for a good set up with the 4x21 ? thanks in advance

The first question, what pressure is the housing rated for?

I have a 2521 pressure canister 300 psi and run a procon pump. Itís max pressure is 140 psi on the pump with valve shut. I run it at 115/120 psi. It works well. I take it to a 7 or 8 before I flush the filter with with my run off water. Itís my first year. New to me also. I bought the parts this winter and put it together.

If it will take 300 psi check into a higher pressure pump. Staying way under the max will cost in production, but you also want to factor in the cost of a higher pressure pump then make your decision.The higher pressure will remove more water.
