RODI Booster Pump


I just received my booster pump for the RODI system I have. The incoming pressure in my apartment was 25-30 psi which was able to produce 0TDS water but only at a rate of 1 gallon every 1.5hrs or so. That is with a system that is spec'd at 100 gpd. I installed the booster pump without issue but now the TDS jumped up to 24 and is not falling. The pressure is set around 80 psi Any idea what may be causing the rise? Do I just need to reflush it like crazy..

All, never mind. It turned out to be a bad set of batteries. My readings were all over the place and when I switched out the batteries the incoming settled at 96 and the outgoing at 0 TDS. The ERR message cleared so that appears to have been the issue....
