Hi-
To clarify-
"store away from direct light, in a cool, dry place with the original bag (it is designed for storing resin and has certain permeability characteristics to enhance life) tightly sealed (and the air burped out if possible) for longest life. Do not freeze".
Hope this helps.

bruce

Okay now I am confused the tds meter on the left of the unit is my in as described to do so in the manual, and the out is on the right of the unit as described in the manual. So my in will never say zero like you said I should wait for before adding the last chamber and then running it until the out is zero. Doesn't make sense

The right meter is the DI meter, and those need to be 0. The left meter is measuring the tap water TDS, and also measuring the RO water TDS.

What if you're and idiot and didn't know you were supposed to refrigerate the DI if you were going to store it for awhile? I have an extra DI I accidentally bought, that I just sat on the shelf in its bag. It has been there for about 6 months. Any thoughts on how long it will last?

You don't have to refrigerate. Is the bag kind of vacuum sealed, or is it puffy with air? If it is not puffy with air, it is more-than-likely fine.

Is it required to run an empty, if that's what you mean by blank, DI cartridge in the DI canister when running my CSPDI unit? It seems to work fine without it. I quit running DI because I was blowing through it way too fast. I suspect it is a CO2 problem. My tank doesn't seem to mind the 2ppm of TDS that gets past the membrane.

Hi there,

I just leave the clear housing empty with no canister in it! I believe that's what Jeremy was referencing as a "blank".

If you were chewing up DI with only 2ppm out of your membrane then I would suspect CO2 as the culprit! Have you considered a degassing tower? It can be as small as some PVC piping and air stone! You can gravity feed or pump through your DI stages into a reservoir. Id be more than happy to send you some info on this!

Feel free to email me directly if you want to chat - [email protected]

You guys are on top of things! Thanks for the quick response. That's what I'm doing, leaving the housing empty, I misspoke when I said canister. Good to know it's ok that way. A degassing set up is on my to do list. If I have any questions I'll give you a holler.

Thanks,

Jason
