    Well,
    the people who installed it just came back and worked on it. They put something in it.

    They would be the people to talk to then to find out how the system is put together, any water softeners etc etc. They should be able to test the TDS also.

    well erm
    they were hired by my builder, and we just let them do their thing. The water does taste really flat. Can Phil or Jeff test it?

    lithopsman,

    Like Tony said, talk to those people or talk to your builder. Find out what they did. It could save you money in the long run on unnecssary tests. As the owner of the building, you have a right and a need to know and understand the RO system. Nothing made by human hands is perfect. Eventually you will need to know enough about it to fix it. Even if fixing it only requires putting in a new filter.
    Also, RO water usually tastes flat because the minerals and salts that give it flavor have been removed or reduced. However, the human tongue isn't calibrated to give readings of the exact quantities of minerals left in the purified water. This is another reason to talk to those people. They may be able to tell you where in your area you can have your water tested or where you can get a TDS meter to monitor your water with so you know when the filters need changed.
    You should also have a user manual/guide for your system. It would answer a lot of your questions on your system.
    Sorry about getting long winded. It seems to happen to me a lot in these forums.
