    I just bought a second hand RO/DI unit. It's been standing for a couple of months apparently. I can see that the indicator resin needs to be replaced. Do i need to now replace the filmtec membrane as well as the sediment & Carbon cartridge?

    Please pm me prices of all of these...

    Hi Jaak if it has not been used in 6 months i will flush your filters including the membrane and test your tds first, in most cases if it has stood this long with out regular use your filters is as good as dumping

    Thanks Imran! I'll have to set it up still and then measure the tds but I must def replace the indicator resin as it's nice and brown.

    I'm with Imraan. Flush the filter out first then change your resin. If there's a lot of dirt it will use the resin up quickly
