    if tyou turn tap off for any period flush the system for 15 /30 mins before sending through resin,,, also drain the water in resin bottle this will make it last longer,,

    i have 2 reverse osmosis systems at 2 different houses, 1 is reading around 15 after 4 days of changing resin and the other is reading 4. it takes 3 week to get to these readings normally as 1 is higher pressure than the other, so both are getting dirtier sooner so looks like the heat is affecting both of em
