hooked up new ro/di today

Hey everyone I hooked up my new ro/di today which i'm really happy about. I only had one little leak fixed that in a sec now its pumping its first water right now. Is what i;m wondering should i dump the first 15 gal of water it pumps out. It really don't say in the directions but i've read that here. Just wondering. Now all i need is tds meter and i will be set for that. I got the water going into a new 33 gal tub. Thats all i could manage for now, but that should give me enough water on hold for a little while. Just wanted to share my fun with all you guys..

Congrats. I'd throw out the first 10 gallons or so, then your unit should be thoroughly flushed out and ready to go.
