Sounds like your DI Resin is coming out...something isn't hooked up correctly or there is a problem with that chamber of the unit....

You need to find out why the resin is coming out of the DI unit. I would contact the seller of the unit and let them know what is going on and see what they suggest. I don't know what unit you have so I can't help much there...

Contact the manufactor. that is one reason they suggest that you run your RO for a couple of hours and throw that water away. See if that DI material stops purging out of the unit.
Use that water on your Roses, please...
