    bought a new bag of tulsion resin a few weeks ago and my ro unit has 2 di`s on it. but after 3 weeks work and only 1000L passed through it there both showing up 023ppm. so i went to the shed and got my resin and refilled the di`s. just checked and its coming out at 014ppm. WTF. its spose to be 000 so why is new resin coming out at 014ppm. HELP PLEASE.. everythings been done right.

    water could be too fast, or resin is knackered

    i got half a bag of resin off a supplier that was meant to be knackered, was only going to be use for a few days, lasted 2 months, best stuff i ever had

    it is mate, i washed it all out, just doesnt make sense. the sun wont do nothing to resin will it. or heat?? its in my shed in a bag with a stone on the top. would the sun strip its resin abilities?

    only if it was damp, but if its working on 500 ml and not 1 l then the prob must be the vessel, or let it run throught the 1 l vessel for a few minutes and see what happens,

    is all the resin in the 1l from the same bag ie was empty before you filled it up

    you have 3 resin vessels, and all have same resin in, and 2 are giving 000, then the prob has to be with the vessel
