You didn’t mention your other filters, you’re not running that straight off of the tap are you? Please say you got some prefilters on it…
What was your pressure? any drop on the backside, or output?
Are you letting your brine out? (wastewater)
A little bit more on your setup would really help.
Thats a pimp of a filter, was looking at those myself. It’ll last you a long time. What size did you get, its the four footer right? Yellow one?
Your tds ain’t nothing compared to here for sure, and your RO should bring it down to zero. If it ain’t, you’re gonna need DI tanks.
If you run your set up like the following, you will keep your DI for about a year or longer if you have a cubic foot of mixed bed resin, personally I don’t have an RO setup but run a pretty well built DI system that saves me a ton of money on DI.
Get yourself 4 big blue housings, and you can get a triple housing mount for cheap if you look around, but in those filters, one will be your sediment filter, try for hi flow at 5 mic’s or less. The other 3 will be hi flow coconut carbon filters. Don’t fall for the “activated” garbage. It’s all activated. Coconut carbon is the best and lasts longest, go for the 4 inchers because the 2 inchers are next to impossible to fit right into the housing.
Price will depend on monsoon season, and hurricane season in the islands where they harvest the coconuts. Bulk is the best deal.
So, run from tap to a pressure regulator (so you can tie in to a water main or a backflow with high pressure preferrably one with 600 pounds down to zero. Get the kind that don’t have reject valves on it.
From regulator to sediment filter, to carbon, to carbon, to carbon, to bypass…one to your RO, the other to booster pump then to RO.
From RO to bypass, one to your DI, one to your supply hose.
From your DI to your supply hose.
