I was looking at aquasafe's 100gpd unit, and reading about the water temperature effecting efficency.
TFC membranes are rated at 77 degrees Fahrenheit and for every 1 degree drop, the production drops 1.4%.
according to my thermometer, my cold tap water temp right now is 46°F
so, 77-46= 31 ... 31 * 1.4 = 43.4%
43% lost in product efficiency due to the water being cold.
Any ideas how to avoid this? having the unit reject water because it's dirty is one thing, but wasting water because it's cold is too enviromentally irresponsible, even for me
