Is there a way to increase the pressure of the output side of an ro filter? The booster pumps I see are designed for the input side. I'd like to get the pressure up to 50#. Will a regular ro booster pump also increase the output side pressure?

The answer is to boost the pressure on the input side with a small
pump. Folks on well water have the biggest problem with that because
the switch will be 20-40 or 30-50. I put a small chemical pump on mine
set to 65psi. It increased the output volume and pressure

I am no expert so take as you see fit... I think the RO would not like a
negative pressure on output, it may damage or not work properly. I would
have a one way valve between a catch tank and a pump. Another way would be
to elevate the RO to a higher level and the weight of the water would supply
pressure. Contact the manufacturer or DAGS.
