Thanks, all. He is doing better now, hopefully was just something he might have got ahold of outside and it didn't sit good with him or a "24 hour bug" cause other than be a little lazier than normal he appears ok. Whew, scared the crap out me last night.

True...sorta. I found out yesterday that I need a new roof. So that's gonna put a damper on things. No way I can do a new roof yet. Last night it stormed pretty good too, more shingles lifted now.

Well they say when it rains-it pours, well I think I'm finally past the swell.

Still chugging along. Got all the fish tanks rinsed, dried and put in the spare room yesterday. Still tossing the sump around in my head.

Not dosing ammonia again yet, hoping I can get my hands in the tank long enough to move all the rock around. Only 2 cuts left to heal woohoo.

Going to top off tank now. Supposed to get to 91 deg so I may have to close up house and put on the air. DRATS.

So I just got my TDS meter. I'm getting a 001 ppm reading, but i suspect that's from the cup i put the ro/di water in to test it.

When is it time to replace the ro/di filter? what ppm?

When you start noticing a rise in your readings then the resin is starting to go bad. I don't recall what the number is to stay below though.

At work we regenerate the resin but we have other readings and such we go by, like conductivty and silica. We use acid and caustic to regen the beds but with home RO's you just go by the TDS.

Since I had my DI replaced I won't be able to see the change, but if you have the clear DI canister you should be able to see the resins change and become darker in color along with the higher readings.

Hope that helps.

That helps a lot
So there are two replaceable parts? The filter/cartridge for RO and the DI resin?

Yes. I believe I saw where you can buy "bulk" for the resin. But whatever you do....when you change the resin DON'T SPILL!!!! You will slip on your butt and hurt something. The little beads are real slippery if there are enough on the floor. Honestly take my word for it, I've slipped on it at work (course it was more quantity than home) but the amount in that resin canister would make for a disaster in a small area.
