if tyou turn tap off for any period flush the system for 15 /30 mins before sending through resin,,, also drain the water in resin bottle this will make it last longer,,

i have 2 reverse osmosis systems at 2 different houses, 1 is reading around 15 after 4 days of changing resin and the other is reading 4. it takes 3 week to get to these readings normally as 1 is higher pressure than the other, so both are getting dirtier sooner so looks like the heat is affecting both of em

when you have 2 DI with resin on 1 system is it a waste of resin using 2 DI when the tds reading from the first DI is zero?? may as well fix the 2nd DI up when the tds starts reading around 5 as i cant see the point of water going through a 2nd DI with resin when it already reads zero, that would be a waste of resin??

so getting resin wet with water reading 0 does nothing at all to the resin? so the resin only starts to get "used" once the tds starts rising? so its the dirt particles in the water what affect the resin and not water wetting the resin?

ive got a 250 gpd with 1 di - and honestly, until now (before I added an inline di cartridge ) I thought 000 reading doesn't exist lol

 

I paid for that extra DI cartridge 12 quid
