    You will have to do some math yourself.

    Average flow rate x amount of time there is flow.

    I tried the 1/4 flow meter and it was too slow to get a reading.

    Just get the flow meter Mike mentioned... somewhere... the Apex is not an all powerful unit that can do everything great. In fact if you put too much reliance on it it might come back around to bite you in the ass.

    Nice. I already have one of those for my filter under my kitchen sink. Maybe I’ll steal it

    Well I decided to get the 3 stage di upgrade and replace all filters and membrane. Also added a second membrane and a booster pump.

    I should be able to double the useful life of my filters and make water much faster now which is awesome.

    Thanks again to everyone who helped. I definitely feel like I was headed down the rabbit hole.

    I maybe went a bit overboard...rebuilt my entire system. Used a 4 place canister holder in reverse. It’s set up as follows

    Stage 1...5 micron filter
    Stage 2...1 micron filter
    Stage 3...universal carbon block
    Stage 4...universal carbon block

    Then to the middle pressure gauge...this is to see when the pressure drops and filters need replacing

    There is a tee after this with a ball valve so that 8 can test for chlorine after the carbon blocks (my house has 1ppm total chlorine currently)

    Next is the booster pump tuned down to 80psi with the left pressure gauge...then
    Stage 5 and 6 are 2 75gpd membranes in series

    Dual TDS meter shows TDS in (my house is around 230ppm) and out after the membranes

    The. Stage 7, 8, and 9 are the BRS 3 stage DI with triple TDS meter. Using the cation, anion and mixed beds.

    Well UPS did say at their site "End of Day" and complaining to my wife around 8pm and not getting a package I joked "watch the doorbell ring at 11:59pm" it was a bit earlier, but damn, I'm lucky my 2 nearly 3 year old doesn't go to bed early like 99.99% of other kids his age.

    I'll give them a tip. It's really damn annoying how you double park everywhere and act like you are better than everyone else
