Question Dual tsd meter question? wrong reading?

I just recently purchased a 75gpd RO/DI system from BRS and it has a dual tds meter already installed and it reads 004 tap water and 000 end product! could my tap water be only 004? or is there something wrong, I would think it would at least be 100 to 200+ anyways hmmm

I just looked and I don't know nothing about this thing! but I was thinking it tested the tap water before the filters. but looks like it is placed after two or three filter so hmmm I don't know so confused! I will just ask BRS maybe they can explain

The first is probably measuring after the RO filter and the second after the DI.

Correct. My BRS unit had the dual TDS meter installed, one side measuring after the RO membrane, and the other side measuring the output of the DI.

Your measurements of 004 and 000 make sense.
