    Not really Jayson. I believe The Savage Garden says that water suitable for CPs should be 50 ppm and under and I think Barry Rice's book says water up to 100 ppm is fine. I tend to change the water in my trays if I check and its above 60ppm.

    I just changed out all my pre-filters and membrane on my unit and I'm getting water in the 18ppm area.

    What RO unit do you have? If its one of those 2 filter units, it might just not be up to the task of lowering the 380 ppm water to a CP safe level. Or the filters could need to be flushed.

    I have a RO filter and a TDS meter. At my house in Mt. Dora, FL tap is around 135ppm and after the RO it gets down to about 30ppm. My RO membrane is due for a replacement but I figured I would wait a while longer.
    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.
