Well its been about a month since my canisters were " sent " from brs via drop shipped from the manufacturer with still no delivery in sight ., i foresee another call to brs this week to seek alittle Devine intermission in this case.
My homemade o rings clearly halted the leaky canisters but in the di canister you either used the " manufacturers o rings which gave you a "0" tds reading but leaked horribly or using my homemade o rings which did not leak but the tds would register about 12 ..., figuring everything out i added a small compression washer from a previously used di cylinder to the bottom of my new di cylinder and presto NO LEAKS and " 0" tds readings Yea !!!!
Granted , one should not have to do this with a NEW unit but this is my report with my problematic unit ., KeithClick image for larger version

Sorry to hear you haven't gotten your canisters yet. Mine arrived and it leaked at first cuz I didn't have any lubricant. I just swapped it to the other canister head and the residual lubricant was enough to help seal it. I would hope now BRS send you a replacement instead of making you wait longer. Happy Nee Year!

George carlin said " I have a lot of brilliant ideas,..problem is that most of them suck ". (That's my motto,!!!) ... But, Every now and then one slips thru the cracks and makes me look good.,...pure accidental no doubt.

Yeah I think that stand addition & the pull out water filter drawer prove your skill isn't an accident lol. As far as mottos go I adopt the Homer Simpson "to succeed despite idiocy" motto.
