shelf life of a RO membrane


Amazin

Recommended Posts

A: if you don't open the package and you keep it in a cool dry place (I think that's the ideal condition?)

B:Already opened and in the housing but not being used

If anyone can give me some ideas that would be great. I think prefilters will last about 6 months?

Have you read the manufacturers packaging? 

New factory sealed membranes are saturated in brine and should last approximately 5 years from the label on one of mine 

An open membrane in a housing with no regular flow or air tight seal will not last long 

All of the answers are on Google if you've ever used the Internet

Regarding the pre-filters, how long they last will depend on how much water you produce. many users they last nowhere near 6 months, roughly 10,000 for sediment filter and 35,000 or 70,000 for a fibredine carbon block filter (depending if 10 inch or 20 inch) Of course, those figures to include waste water too. Many will get through a sediment filter every couple of weeks.

Im not 100% on the membrane, but ive read once in place and being used, to not let them dry out. Give it a regular flush etc once a week or so.

Im not here all the time but I noticed few people are getting irritated with newbies questions.

The problem is ones don’t  try and help themselves by doing  any research how did they manage before the internet and forums like this , some are to lazy to help themselves they want a profitable business handed to them on a plate , Ime more than happy to try and help anyone but the same old questions come up on an almost daily basis all they have to do is search new start up questions it’s not rocket science .
