How do we empty our RO unit to move?

We are having our house packed up on Monday for our move this week & it just donned on us........what do we need to do to empty our RO unit? Do we just take the canisters off & empty the water from them? What about the filters.....won't they mildew or something. Should we just let them dry out, what?

IMO, you shouldn't empty it at all. If the tfc membrane drys out it will be ruined.

We are talking about the same thing here I hope. I have a 3 stage system so I was talking about the 2 canisters, the carbon block filter & the sediment filter. The one across the top gets left alone correct?

Correct. If you want you can empty it of water and put the membrane in a ziplock bag to keep it moist.

Ok that's what I thought, just making sure. I don't want to ruin these membranes.
