Post New to RO units

Hey guys - I received a RODIunit for my birthday and before getting it started, since it came with no instruction and I had to look it all up (it's a 50gpd POQ-4b-50 from pure water club), I was wondering what advice everyone had for making their own RODI water. A list of do's and don't's would be awesome!

Since it has already been purchased and is what I am going to try, please don't try to tell me reasons why a different one should have been purchased, I mostly want tips for maintaining and storage (not to sound rude)

I got the bulk reef supply 75 gpd plus unit. It came with the Tds meter, pressure valve and flush kit for $130. It was on sale for Black Friday. I think there is a bulkreefsupply group buy right now you could try and get in on.
