    hi guys

    in last month or so my ro unit output has really slowed down..before I could produce 100litres a day easily..now I can only produce 25litres per a day.

    all prefilters and membranes were changed and it has not improved.

    any ideas what it could be? need it sorted as I have to fill my new tank soon

    How is you water pressure with everything else?

    Have you flushed it, if it comes with a flush value to rinse it?

    take out all your filters and put together and turn it on also flushes the water lines

    I flush it before every use. maybe I must take all filters out and see how the flow is..was wondering if something could be blocked

    4 age Google focculants. Our municipal does it so often. I found this out when numerous cape town customers started complaining. Our supplier gave us this info it will soon subside and your unit will return to normal after many flushes
