In my oppinion your lights are on to long start your blues at 11am whites at 12 then white off at 7 blues at 8. Only feed once a day. The ice store probably only has RO water not RODI.

A lot depends on the efficiency of the unit. Some RO units pull 98%, some only pull 92% thats where the DI comes in. Then the question is when was the RO unit last changed?

The ice machine was just made so the RO should be brand new

That doesn't mean he changed the membrane in the unit. Have you tested the TDS
