When you say you used vinegar did you do 50/50 white vinegar ro water and let it sit submersed for 1/2 hour guarantee that will work i run a bottled water company thats how we remove water reservoirs smells. Also if tds is saying 14 ppm thats probably correct. Most home ro systems have 15 micron sediment filters usually only commercial units run 5 micron filters our ro system does 8 gallons a minute at 5.35-6.4 ppm, even when we distil our ro it still is 1.5 ppm thats the best we have gotten it.

No no definitely not 50/50. I used like 10 parts water for one part vinegar. I used regular water but you can use RO.

I would just hit wal mart and get a garbage can lol

If you'd run it through DI resin, you'd get zero... but that would be too expensive for bottled water producers. Running an RO+DI system, there's no reason you shouldn't be able to get 0.0 ppm output if everything is working right.
