did i break my ro/di unit

i was doing a water change today and noticed my pressure gauge was not working, next thing i notice was that the water was burning hot

than i realized im getting way more water than usual, and i hear that is bad

i have a 75 gpd ro unit from bulkreef supply and have NO idea on what to replace or how

can i still use my unit? it measured 0 tdi, but i dont know that may be broken too

How old is the unit? It almost sounds like a ruptued membrane.

im gona guess and just throw out 6 months, def not a year but at this long

my biggest concern was that my pressure gauage was stuck on 0, so maybe the piping is broken? and if its my membrane, how do i replace it? is the membrane one of three canister?

i know when i bought it, i read that i must replace something(membrane?) every year?

if thats the case, im not mad for breaking it since its time, but the water was almost piping hot now that i think of it

edit: so i am sitting here thinking of what to replace, my dirtiest canister is black with light brown, i still get 0 tds, and im sure the membrane is broken(this effects the pressure gauge?)
