    RO system troubleshooting

    I don’t know whether the TDS meter is bad or not, but the input TDS measures consistent. I do have a spare flow restrictor. I’ll try that tomorrow.

    RO system troubleshooting

    Ok, I removed the second membrane today and went back to a single, brand new one. Getting almost 200 TDS out. I’m furious

    RO system troubleshooting

    I ran everything for a good while after every change I made. I flushed a bazillion times. Routing waste from the first into the second produces more water. I want lower TDS.

    RO system troubleshooting

    So damn frustrated. This is what I did today: Installed a waste bypass line with a valve, so I can flush the membrane manually - without relying on the Smart Buddie to do it. Flushed the membrane several times. Replaced the sediment filter. Replaced the membrane with a brand new one (in a...

    RO system troubleshooting

    I bought a second membrane to try and reduce waste, but now I'm thinking I would rather reduce TDS. My source water is at 400 TDS and I'm getting 40 out of one membrane. (In the beginning, I was getting 17, not sure what's up now) Does it make sense to run the water through two membranes...

    I think it’s air - they’re filled with Glycerin

    Anna & Pablo’s RSR P650

    Also added a TDS meter to the line from the tank, so I know what’s in there.

    Anna & Pablo’s RSR P650

    Bought a pressure gauge from BRS and placed it on the product end of the RO. This will tell me if the pressure tank downstream is low.

    Who throws away coral?

    I shot a bird with my friend’s BB gun as a kid and felt terrible. I swore I would never shoot another animal.
