They are sending a new membrane, it seems as if the carbon had been leaking some how, not sure what he said but it's a dodgy batch, cheers 4 all the advice

Hello again, sorry to bring this up again. I never got my system up and running because even after I was sent a new membrane I still could not get my ppm under 20,

I thought it might of been the membrane that the company had sent me that was the problem, even though they sent me 2 they were still not producing good enough ro water, maybe a bad batch they had and after they sent me 2 new pre filters and a new membrane Iv given up with them,

I went to my LFS yesterday and bought a new 50g membrane thats made by a different company thinking it would solve the problem but after installing it I'm still getting ro water at 66 ppm!!!

I really don't understand why I'm not getting better reading???? I flush the membrane for at least 1 - 2 hours and Iv replaced the pre filters and I'm on my 3rd membrane now and I still haven't had any good water,

my input water is 280ppm and I'm getting 66-70ppm out. My question is... Do I need another stage (ie. DI cartridge ) this would make it a 4 stage system, or is my input water supply to hi?

I'm kinda giving up as I don't really want to spend any more on this until I know what the problem is,

Thanks

Nick
