Then, tie this in with your addition of additional gunk into the system it is simply trying to do it's job. Just be careful you don't drain too much water form the system as it does this. If there is an ATO on the system you can lower salinity, among other things.
I know about the break in but I thought that was done. It seemed to do nothing for a couple weeks then just go nuts.
I know about the salinity, thanks tho, and Im going to get more RO
water tonight as my salinity was actually getting too high before I topped off.
One question, the water being skimmed is perfectly clear and clean looking. Should I just dump it back in the tank as top off or consider it gunky even tho it looks and smells fine and just dump it?
