    Butch, you are amazing. One couldn't ask for a simpler explanation of it all.

    And... more bad news. There was a really slow leak that I could not locate for the life of me for like three hours. When I eventually discovered exactly where it was coming from, I was... errr... pissed. The cap to the DI canister has a very tiny fracture in it - the same place the tee splitter was broken off at upon arrival. Whatever caused the tee to break must also have put enough pressure on the plastic of the canister's lid to fracture it. Grrrrrr. The good news is that they supposedly shipped me a new one today. If I'm lucky, perhaps I'll have it before I leave this weekend. If not... well... Ugh. I can just skip the DI stage and still get water clean enough for my plants, right? I've already bypassed that stage (now goes right to the tank and/or carbon post filter after the ASOV, which is after the PP, which is after the membrane... LOL), but I haven't run it for fear I might break something, but that's perfectly fine, isn't it? Just wanted to double check before running it.

    I'll go work on that diagram for you. Be warned, though, it may be quite crude. XD

    Oh, and I'll pick up a gauge today. Probably some more tees and ball valves, too, to make maintenance a little easier.

    I hope this is sufficient, LOL.

    Diagram looks good.... and yeah, no issues with bypassing the DI

    one good thing, your understanding of the process will be truly in-depth LOL

    Alrighty, we'll see what TDS I get without the DI.

    No, not yet. Still in my PJs, LOL.

    I'm not sure how to give feedback to this seller... Normally, I'd give negative feedback, but in this case it's between neutral or positive. Yes, there were broken parts. That sometimes happens in shipping, it's inevitable. Granted, their packing was far from the best, but still. The reason I'm conflicted is because I've now contacted them twice, on two different days, regarding two different issues, and both times they've had replacement parts on the way with priority postage the very same day. They're doing their absolute best to fix the issues. They never even questioned me about the broken parts, either. The DI canister lid, for example, could well have been broken by me over-tightening the fitting that screws into it (I didn't, I was very careful about it), but they didn't even mention it. I told them the part was broken and they said "must have crack during shipping. Will ship out today." You really can't beat that kind of post-sale support...

    times like those I have simply left no feedback... but that is a call you got to make.

    they may have never seen it (drop shipped by a 3rd party), may have been some flunky doing the shipping that day, or who knows... do-do does happen to the best of us
