I had some hair algae popping up just in the last month or so. I was hitting my head against the wall until I decided to break out the good old TDS meter and checked my solids coming out of my RO/DI unit. 50ppm and my mouth dropped. The new filters should arrive from BRS today.

Did you check the water in two places?
1. Coming out of the RO membrane
2. From the final stage of processed water coming out of the DI

I did not use to do this and I probably threw away a perfectly good RO memebrane when all I needed to change was DI resin. The RO membranes last awhile. Since then I switched to this: Dual inline TDS meter DM-1 HM Digital - English
so I know exactly what needs to be replaced, plus you never have to break out the old TDS meter because it is always hooked up.
