    How do you look after it? I replace mine every year. Maybe @The Waterboy - Marco will be able to help you. Send him a private message, he is excellent.:biggrin:

    I swop the membrane once every 18months or so and the rest once a year. TDS shouldnt go over 5 or so, if that happens u need to change them out.

    Also depends on how much RO water u make, mine is roughly 500L per month
