    Hi there
    I bought a pure freedom set up for spares and got the ro system with it .
    From the pic you can see there is only one membrane on the top .
    This is how it came as the guy said there was 2 but the bad winter we had a few years ago cracked one of the casing and he bypassed the system.
    There is the carbon block / carbon and prefilter and then the resin cannister
    Can I still use it as is once all filters are changed or is is dead in the water so to speak
    Many thanks

    You might be able to buy a spare one from pure freedom, but yeah you can still use it, might be a bit slower, but should still work, try and see what TDS you get :thumbsup:

    if the main part is dicconected depends what your ppm is .. as mine goes through the sediment and carbon filters then into the membrane membrane does most the work

    you dont want to be firing through loads of resin check the ppm before the system them just before the resin just to know what your dealing with
