Ok So i recieved my pole , aqua adapter and hose, reel , 100 ft of hose, and 2 TDS meters, one is a 1 button cheapo and the other is a higher grade TDS 3 button cheapo maDE BY hm digital called a TDS-3, recieved my 2 Extreme 150 GPD RODI 5 STAGE Reef Keeper systems
So I had went to home depot and purchased 3 enclosed water harvesting tank, And no I am not harvesting water , just using it as a enclosed barrel with a spicket coming out of it… 2 for at the shop and 1 for home,
Measured my water here at home, Cheapo meter said 83 and TDS-3 said 124
I had purchased 2 aquarium or home Extreme 150 GPD RO/DI water filtration sytem that came with auto fill shut off and all the bells and whistles to auto fill my 55 Gallon barrels…
So I hooked 1 up here at home, flushed it as directed etc, And let it run Ro only at first, let it fill 2 gallons dumped it and let it fill some more and filled a cup, Took a reading, Cheapo meter said 3 TDS and the other said 3 to 4 TDS
Now on the extreme reef keeper theres another onboard TDS meter and it read a steady 3 TDS
Opened up the RO/DI side and closed RO only and full 5 stages, took a sample and 0 TDS and all meters and on board meter read 3 TDS before DI and 0 TDS after DI
So the question is this???
Is 3 or 4 TDS good enough for window cleaning???
Do i even need the DI???
Or do i even need RO
Can i just use DI???
And help would be great… Thanks
