View Full Version : RO break-in period?

07/20/2016, 09:53 AM
I have a maxcap 90gpd unit, manual flush, brand new. I've made about 10g of water at this point, and am seeing about a 4:1 waste ratio with the green restrictor in place. I am using a booster pump, and source water has a TDS of about 70-90, TDS out is 0. Is there a break-in period on the system, during which my waste ration will eventually improve to the advertised rate?

Maybe the first gallon or two. What are the TDS meters reading?

TDS in ranges between 70-90. TDS out of RO is 0-1. TDS out of DI is 0.
