    could you give my a bit of advice plz, , iv just brought collins 450 gpd ro when you connected it up and did your very first flush, did you disconnect the pipe from the first ro membrane to just flush only the pre filters of all the carbon and ****. as well as just open the flush valve. or did you just use the flush valve.

    iv asked collins they said just use the flush valve, but iv just watched a youtube vid of a guy with a small ro, he took the pipe off as well. just didnt want to contaminate the ro membranes...what did you do?? iv pm trev this but thought id open it up

    Juts open the valve for around 20 mins then close then your ppm will have come down
