    How high is normal to let you ppm get before u start getting spots? I'm In a hard water area under the tap it's at 295 I started using the system 2 weeks ago & to start off it was at 0.3 & in 2 weeks it's gone to 0.8.. Not having any problems yet but not sure how often I need to change it really.. Got a very busy week next week need to keep on top of it. Thanks in adv

    I'm guessing you're DI only? Get an RO for tap water that high.

    I might have to do alot of wiping down tomorrow as I have 2 big houses both new cleans & my ppm is at 0.12 I thought it would be fine & left it to fill as the last fill I done it was at 0.8 & was still drying clear.. I will be doing my first resin change tomorrow evening.. I did trying it on my windows earlier & it seemed to be ok.
