No problem glad I could help just remember to flush it and save some life on that membrane between uses.

What do you mean by flush it? Open up the ball valve in-line with the waste line?

Haha yea oh well... And yea I flush it for a couple minutes before and after I use it. Should I only do after, or only before, or is both ok?... How long is the membrane typically good for? BRS said a few years, is that true??

My membranes still good at almost a year and I'm due for some prefilter changes but I can't say from experience and yes before and after. Also let it run for a little while before collecting water cause it tends to come out with low TDS readings the first minute or two

Edit* you've got a 5 stage though so you may not have that with an extra prefilter as bad as my 4 stage does and your membrane will last longer with the extra pre filtration

Oh that reminds me... So the inline meter. It read 0 even from when I immediately started putting water through it.. Only on the "out" setting though, it was showing between 14-22 on the "in" setting. Does that sound about right?

So that's the meter on top. This is the last canister the water filters through before... The "in" and "out" are on the same gauge. "In" is on the left side of the meter , and "out. Is on the right...

I may be wrong but so you are measuring what's going into your Di and your product water?
