Pressure Supply Units
The pressure supply unit (PSU) comes in either electric or petrol powered versions. It provides the power and pumping to draw source water and press it through the reverse osmosis membrane.

For customers that might be running a battery bank with an inverter for their AC requirements should choose the petrol (gasoline) version.

However, some customers with a portable generator will still choose the petrol PSU for redundancy purposes.
