    What you will need to do is to disconnect the outlet from the last pre-filter housing and let water flush through the 3 pre-filters for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then connect back up and continue processing as normal.

    I pump pure through the filters after producing an ibc's worth for about 5 mins till the tds reads 0 coming out of both waste and the ro outlet.
    Then i know the filters aren't stewing in tap water which is usually between 034-090 but the waste side can be as high as 100.

    Its my way of trying to preserve the filters lol
