    My next diy is to make up a flush unit any advise on this. I know I got to keep all the filters wet when not in use I have 3 shut off valves fitted, but do you keep the RO filter unit under abit of pressure ?

    Where's my rain?

    On going saga of my RO unit, got my booster pump installed and working correctly getting over 90psi so let it run for 30 mins producing RO water it only got me down to From 60 TDS to 32 TDS got on the phone to east midland water co that supplied RO unit not st all happy with them but now again waiting for a phone call from them think my filters are messed up ?

    Interesting question if you are producing RO water at 0-5 TDS and you measure your rainwater at 20 TDS what one would you use.

    My update, my pressure gauge came checked the pressure just now and its at 30 psi direct from the outside tap, so now put on order a booster pump as my system must run at a minimum of 50 psi this is costing me a fortune lol well you will do anything for the plants,,,,,, am I right in thinking the pressure gauge should go just before Di filter if not please correct me or confirm thanks

    Where's my rain?

    I have put on order a pressure gauge to see what my home pressure is think it must be low they say on the website to my unit must be minimum of 50psi I can see it now having to buy booster pump got this one earmarked https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Reverse-Osmosis-200-GPD-Booster-Pump-Marine-Fish-Tank-Aquarium-RO-Water-2016-New/252450766838?hash=item3ac73cfff6%3Ag%3AE3EAAOSwXeJXfB2S&var=551313756823

    Fitted the new elbow no leaks now but TDS is still in the 60's getting back to the so called helpline

    Where's my rain?

    It certainly pissed me off the one sheet just telling you the flow diagram, I just have to wait for the new elbow to arrive to stop the leak that is just a drip drip so it must be losing some pressure? I don't think my pressure here is very high i can see me having to buy a pressure gauge, they say should have a minimum of 50 psi got no idea what the usual pressure average for home is, I know you can buy a unit to up the pressure.
