    What PPM are you guys getting down to through your RO before running it through the Di?
    What is a good number to aim for so im not expecting too much from my Di?

    the number you want is 1 % to 5 % of your initial ppm from tap.

    so if its 200ppm your looking for between 2 and 10 ppm.,

    400ppm between 4 and 20ppm etc etc

    Thanks guys,
    Out of the tap mine is about 350ppm and i was getting frustrated as i couldn't get it below 009ppm, sounds like that's actually very good. Then Di is reducing to 000ppm.
    I just want it to be most efficient so i'm not over using my Di.

    Thanks again
