RODI and TDS

I have an RODI unit that was producing 0-5 tds water. I changed the prefilters and its now up to 10-12 TDS. Is this still and acceptable range for a reef tank with hardy coral or should I be replacing the membrane?

You need to be replacing your DI resin when it no longer works...
Depending on your source water level just the RO system with a good TFC membrane could still let some TDS through.
It is De Ionising resins that do the final job...

Before you change your DI resin try flushing it through for about 20 minutes and see were reading you get first.
