ro/di ?

I'm getting high phsphate readings with my ro/di water and can't figure it out .its brand new and everything is hooked up right. The only thing i can figure is that the di resin was bad to start with. I think its a refilible canister so i'm going do by some resin for it. The resin don't look like other resin i've seen here is a pic.

How much water have you made so far? I've made about 70 gallons with mine and the TDS is getting up to around 12ppm. So if you haven't made much water with it then it's more than likely the DI resin. I got DI resin for $18 on ebay. It's not that bad compared to buying the whole filter.
