4 simple tips to increase the life of your RO membrane.

4- SIMPLE TIPS FOR LONG MEMBRANE LIFE

1. Replace your sediment filter at least every 6
months or as determined by pressure drop test. This will prevent membrane fouling due to silt or sediment depositing on the membrane.
2. Replace your carbon block filter at least once every 6 months or when chlorine breakthrough occurs. This will ensure good membrane life and protect the membrane from chlorine damage.
3. Your Membrane should not be operated at lower than the
recommended concentrate (waste) to permeate (output or purified) water ratios.
4. Operating reverse osmosis systems on softened feed water greatly reduces the chances of membrane fouling.
