Tds readings

Just wondering what most of us are getting for tds readings before rodi filtration. I've never actually worried about it before due to the house filtration system being from what I'm led to believe quite effective. Just wanted to know others readings from the tap. Thanx all

Mine says 7, but I still don't think that's it accurate, even though my RO/DI unit is new.

Is that before the rodi or after? I'm curious about the before also if you'd be so kind. Thanks

Great numbers huh. I'm finally giving in, my rodi comes tomorrow. Tap reading varies from eight to eleven, curious to see the after. Dumb question, but do rodi units have a ph effect?

What unit did you get? I don't know about Ro?DI having any PH effect, but maybe someone else can chime in.

Woah, those are some big numbers. My tap generally reads 3-7.. We have a filtration system on the house though. Then my RO/DI reads 0.
