I checked the water (running since my last post - 3hrs ago) in a clean glass and it's now reading 10ppm as opposed to 20ppm.
I also flushed it for 15 minutes before I started running it. Then I ran it properly through.
If I keep running it do you think it might continue to go down? I'm on a well and it's running cool (not cold) water so it's not emptying my hot water tank so I can keep it running.
I was told the filters were "replaced recently and should last me a year" from the previous owner who is big into the saltwater hobby (had a private distribution business) so I'm wondering if the filters just need to be run through?
Regardless, I'm ordering new cartridges so Ill have them if all else fails.
