    They do tend to go up slightly when colder weather hits. I've never understood why, so if its your first winter and you're using RO don't worry there's nothing wrong :)

    That's surprising as a general rule the readings do go up slightly - I think it something to do with water being more dense when it's cold. I could be wrong tho :)

    Because in the cold water becomes more dense as Matty states. When you look at the spec's of membranes the performance rate is always set at the water being at a set water temp around, if this drops then performance will be effected.
