nope... thats not it
nope... thats not it
I wouldn't be so angry about it if I thought there was even a possiblity of it being my fault. Everything is monitored so i pretty much know all the details of the system. here it is with the booster, (without the new DI) showing about 35 PSI in coming pressure. (so a little higher than i remembered but still in the range of needing a booster)
and this booster is made for RO systems... 55-120gpd membranes.
It would be great if we could find a different cause... But, it's not going to happen I fear.

nepg- that's where i bought the DI and my last set of prefilters after watt's bull crap... They seem to ship pretty quick too. But make sure you buy enough to make up for shipping.. shipping one thing can be expensive.
I remember saying in the chat box yesterday that there is a HUGE markup on these things. That is why you can buy a 100gpd filter on fleabay for 35 bucks. There really isn't much to the things for them to be so pricey. I will be looking for one soon so this topic is a good thing for me. Stay away from watts LOL.
BTW Andrew what is DI you keep talking about? Drip irrigation?
Ok I see it is de-ionizer, but why would you want to de-ionize it??
Well, as I read it, there are only 2 manufactures of membrane material anyway.. so no matter where you go, you get one or the other... that whole story is on the ebay page of the $35 membrane, check that out.
the DI system takes the low tds that the membrane creates... (currently i'm getting 9ppm) and removes the rest of it. So, my out water is 0ppm tds. It just like "finishes" cleaning the water the rest of the way. You could run un RO'd water through a DI and get 0 water also.. but then the DI runs out FAST. so you use them after RO and they last a long time.
I'm so nervous about when I go to buy a RO. It for me would be a big investment since work been a bit slow. But regardless I need to do homework on them and hopefully get some of you guys to help me get a decent one and probably need help getting it all setup right.
The RO is going to be good though for so much more. All these years we used bottled water for my daughter bottles and stuff. Now everything can be RO and fresh Nice oatmeal in the morning without screwing around with a gallon jug of water.
That sucks to hear about your bad experience with this manufacturer. I have been recently looking for a good, cheap, small RO system, and now I know to avoid Watts . I should probably go look at Costco... they have the best return policies ever. You can probably return an item that is a couple years old without having to go through manufacturer warranties.
I use tap water, it is 25PPM or something, people on TF warned me not to use it since it would get dirty in the pipes (the water is always going through the pipes so I dunno how it would have much of a chance) but I think the water is great and my plants have been using it for over 6 months and like it a lot so... I guess it works out. RO is a waste of money to me
