Thanks Grizz, you made my day!! , I needed that kick. I just rode 15 on my bike to and from an appt. Got poured on and still enjoyed the ride. I missed my bike. I didn't feel "old" before my surgery now...Hard to "get back in the saddle" Off topic here so pm me the chatty stuff ok?

RO---- Well ya'll I guess my RO/DI is working well. I started to make water about 11:00. Figured I make it for an hour before I left and make more when I got home. The brain being "half full" (lol Grizz) OOPS I forgot to turn the water off before I left as mentioned above. Was gone 4 1/2 hours, came back, happened to "hear water running" lol...........and...........


talk about CLOSE CALL.

With the other readings being different too, it's possible I have a "defective kit" for lack of better words. Since it was manufactured in March of this year, do you think they will send me a replacement kit?

I would send it back to them with a note explaining how you are just a poor working person that spent all this money on a test kit that went bad in just a few months. Bet they send you another one.
