I had the directions last week when I ordered new filters. Now I'm on a mission to find them again. What should the tds read coming out of the unit? I know as close to zero as possible. But what are the ranges? What is normal?

Needs to run and cleans the system and expelling few gallons until it reads zero. Did you replace ro filter on top?

No sir. Replaced only the first filter on left. It was red in assuming from iron. Think I can replace the second one with no problem. The third on right was the big question. It appears not to have a canister. It has three types of media floating in the screw off part. I have not taken it off yet so it may actually have a clear canister and I just can't see it. Brs sent me 4 actual canisters for replacements. Just got off the phone with them and the guy said it may just be set up differently. He said that the canister they sent I could put the media in it and put the whole canister in the clear screw on part. That just doesn't seem right. The one on top I could not get the filter out and did not want to force it. It I a coralife 2 premium tfc ro water purification unit with a mixed deionization cartridge.

Going in high after the ro about 90 percent lower after the di zero.

You might be right that your top is a combination of ro and di while the 3rd on right is empty which is supposed to be your di. Replace top filter with pure ro and use that di medium at the empty cardridge. Use the smaller wrench to open top cartridge.

No sir. The third on the right is empty of a cartridge but has mixed media in it. Looks like carbon and 2 other compounds. Appears if I take the third clear canister off I can pour water and media out. It does not appear to be contained in any kind of canister. Should I put new media in this new canister and put the whole thing in the clear outer canister. That doesn't seem right and I'm not sure who to call. Lfs is over 2 hours away. I really appreciate your help.

Oh and I got the top canister open. I just could not get a cartridge out. Did not force it but bumped it on counter and pulled at it but it did not budge.

You can use a plier or any sharp object to hook it and pull. It has rubber O rings on both ends. Don't be afraid to break the cartridge cause you're throwing it away anyway.

You mean they sent you a canister with di compounds that does not fit in?
