    Hi just wondering what's the ideal tds level before going into my resin vessel. It's currently for me at 33ppm altho only had the system running a short while only produced 700 litres so far.
    Is there a way of reducing that pre resin tds level?

    If the 33ppm is from your tap, you're doing well :thumbsup:.

    Ideally you want the tds reading after the RO as low a possible before it hits the DI resin. Depends what RO you have but ideally should be around 002 - 010 ppm so to help make the DI resin last longer.

    Far as I've always known if your water is going through a ro if your tap is 100 tds ro should get it to 5 before resin , 200 tap - 10 from ro before resin 300 tap 15 from ro and so on :)
