kent ro/di ?

i guess its time to change the micron filter and carbon block !! water taste like a fresh water tank !! but my question is not sure if its time to change the di !! after reading the manual i still cant tell !! the top 1/3 is a orange color then it blends into an orange/blue,green in the other 1/3 and the last 1" or two is more of a greenish/blue !! is it better to change all 3 at the same time or can i wait till the whole di turns orange ??

HUH?

Do you mean should you order a RO unit now and add DI later?
Buy it now! It's only a bit more and it will all come together as a single unit.

Just my opinion...

If your DI is half gone i would replace it because once they start to go they decline very fast.

Thanks Kevin, NOW it makes sense!

Steve, The only way to tell for sure is to use a TDS meter. I got one with my RO/DI unit from airwaterice. My DI lasted quite a long time after I thought it was depleted. I do 15 gallon changes every 2 weeks and about 10 gallons of top off in between.
