It's not that bad, just get a replacement filter kit from brs or something, the actual unit is still fine

If the hose is leaking there's a good chance your not getting sufficient pressure. Try buying a psi meter to check.

Try replacing filters, carbon, membrane, etc. Give it a nip tuck and it should be fine. Also- brs has an additional chamber to reduce waste.

Something else to look at is the flush valve. I don't know if your system has one but mine does and you want to set it so you filter 1g and get 2g waste. Or look into a booster pump after you replace all your media that is.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I'll pull it apart tonight and see if I can get it all spiffy and working properly.

I received my TDS reader today so I'll see how good the unit is working with the current filters and diaphragm.

I would crank up the valve to the max filtered production while still getting 0 TDS.
