    According to the TDS meter on my RO/DI my water comes in at 0.9 and works its way down to 0.01 after letting it flush and run for about 2 minutes before I fill up. Is that good? Obviously it goes out at 0.0 and I know that's good.

    I do not see any price so that must mean they are free!

    Bumping this up since i now have all new cartridges, thanks to bush and doyle, and they are installed however, i am still not getting any flow out of the membrane/DI cartridge?? I was really hoping to time this out with it up and running before i ran out of my LFS RO water! Anyone have any suggestions or if anyone gets the time and wants to take a look at it i would be very grateful. I'm still a few days out from back surgery so it hurts like a mother to work on it much. Thx.

    Unscrew the connector joint and make.surenits not clogged. If pull off the end cap to the membrane also and check it's not clogged inside there either

    You have to create back pressure to actually force water through the membrane otherwise it all goes through the waster water line

    Ok I think Levi was right! It was the lack of back pressure that was causing the water to not come out.

    So new question::: How long should it take to fill a 5 gallon bucket? I left it on earlier for about two hours and only got about 2 gallons? is that correct? also the new DI filter canister i got from Bush only fills up about 1/4 of the way with water, is that correct?

    Aquasafe Maximus RO/DI unit
    50GPD membrane
    all new filters

    Thanks!!

    1 gallon an hour seems a little slow. that could change though. sometimes my DI canister doesn't even show a level. So that isn't a problem.

    if you have a 50gpd membrane I would say you need to look at the specs to make sure you have the right amount of pressure both in and out. If you are getting 30 psi in then it for sure isnt able to build enough pressure to get more than 24 gpd, the optimum level is around 60psi to get the 50gpd.
