    Figured I'd ask the group. It's time to change my filters and I'm wondering if I should put the same that were in there. Currently there is one 5 micron prefilter followed by 2 carbon block filters which I guess are 1 micron. What does everyone else use? The reason I know it's time is my...

    I have to share a big learning experience I had this weekend. Found out my RO/DI unit wasn't working, that is, it was putting massive amounts of phosphates and Gosh-knows in the RO water. I checked the output RO water and it was loaded with phosphates and the pH was way alkaline! I was...
