    I'm running the maxcap 180 2:1 with a booster pump to 70 psi at the membrane. The TDS of my tap is really low ~ 15. I must have higher suspended solids because my sediment filters clog up pretty quick, less than about 500 gallons or so. My tap has about 1.5ppm chloramine. My carbons were...

    So I just had a new well pump put in after 4 days without water and as part of installing the pump they put chlorine in the well. No drinking water or doing laundry for 4 days as per their instructions. How will this affect me making RO/DI water?

    I know that using straight tap water for water changes is never a good idea for many reasons.

I have been getting RO water from my fish store, its getting to be a hassel having...

    I have a 28g nanocube. My only other fish before this were gold fish in a bowl with gravel and a castle. Hey, I'm only 15 so don't make fun of my gold fish. Anyway I have a simple question. When I'm cleaning out the filter do I have to worry about the chlorine from the water left over in the...

    what does 4ppm mean? I am worried that chlorine may be part of that 4ppm should i use a chlorine remover on my 4ppm water I'm currently making? I am getting new filters for my unit asap but I've already made about 10 gallons of 4ppm water

    I know this is probably a really stupid question, but I just got an RO unit from a buddy, it works really well, the water coming out of the clean hose is reading 3 tds. Okay, so here's the goofy question: do I need to dechlorinate the water coming out of the RO unit if it's filtering well...
