    I've noticed that my tap water ppm has shot up another 100 ppm.

    Could this be the water companies are dosing the water more because of the warmer weather?

  2. Give them a call, be interesting to hear their response. Are you on a meter? Would they have to reimburse you if they provide a different product? Tds?

    I would be wasting my time as their duty as a service provider is to provide safe drinking water. Therefore they would not be that interested how hard or soft the water is unlike us wfp window cleaners. :D

    Ours also stinks of chlorine these last few days. Started to run the r/o later in the afternoon.

    Could very well be!

    I test my pure water every barrel every fill.
    Yesterday I got my first 001 reading.
    Out of curiosity I thought I'd check pre di vessel and although it's not dramatic mine has increased from 81 to 125 .
    Going to keep an eye on this over the next few weeks.

    That's no good to me as the data is at least a year old.. I could have grown two heads by then :D
