    RO/DI System

    I found my RO/DI system but haven't used it for several years and several moves. It is a 6 stage system but i have never changed the filters. Which filters would i need to change? All of them?

    Thanks Doyle,
    I have always used all 6 stages since that is how i bought it. The TDS always read 0.0 but do i need all 6 stages?

    Depends on your water I would think. My tap water is at 46tds so I run 1 sediment, 1 carbon, RO membrane and DI resin.

    Plus 1.

    My tap is 140 ish. I run 2 micons (.5 & 1 i think,) 1 carbon, 1 membrane, & 2 DI resins which is probably close to your 6 stage. As you pull out the cartridges you will see what you need to replace them.

    I have a sediment, carbon, carbon, ro, di, di because my incoming TDS is like 40 so it's really just polishing before I hit the di resin

    Does anyone know where to buy filters for this thing or am i forced to buy them from the manufacturer? Guy said on the phone it would be around $100 for all 6 replacements.
