RO/DI unit trouble

RO keeps clogging even with new membrane (another $40!). Something isn't right.Supposed to last for 2-3 years. Output would be low from the start and would keep flowing at a low flow. But it starts out 1gal in 30 min, which it should be. But in 12 hours, or so, the flow
has slowed to a mere few ounces in 2hrs. Something is causing the membrane to clog, I think. Can you flush the membrane? What could be going on?

Just tried flushing it and nothing comes out. I replaced the membrane and the new one last 24hrs and stopped working it won't flush either.
