    What system do you have? Although you could run pretty much any system with 82 PSI.

    82 PSI is plenty for that IMO

    Is it 82 psi going into the prefilters or into the membrane? There can be a drop in pressure between the prefilters and the membrane. 82 psi into the membrane is more than sufficient.

    Just move the gauge you have now. A pressure gauge before the prefilters is not really necessary because all you care about is the pressure going into the membrane.

    I believe they recommend you have a pressure of 50 PSI. You have more than enough pressure. No booster pump needed.
