You'd get better performance from your DI
stages if you:
1. Packed each as tightly as possible - avoid any air gaps/voids. If the resin bed fluidizes you didn't pack it tightly enough
2. Remove those DI
stages from their clips and orient them vertically with bottom-up flow through each. You may need some clips and extra tubing to make this happen. The clips are made for either 2.0" or 2.5" diameter containers.
stages are a fundamental design/configuration goof - often an indicator of drinking water RO
systems assembled overseas with DI
's scabbed on in the U.S. You're unlikely to find a top tier vendor with a configuration that includes horizontal DI
