    Bexar Met used chloramine, and SAWS bought them out. As far as I know, SAWS still doesn't use chloramine in their own built systems.

    Default No Chloramine in San Antonio water

    For some reason I go through DI resin like crazy. I usually make 40-70g of RO/DI at a time. I'll burn up a half cartridge of DI resin in 40-50g. My membrane is 96% rejection rate and I've verified this with a tds meter. 274 in, 11 after the membrane and 0 out. I have the flush kit that I use every time I start making water and I leave it on for at least 10 minutes. I have no idea what would be burning up my resin so fast.

    I am having almost the exact issue as Ben. New RO filters, new membrane. TDS after ro is 19, 0 after DI and the DI is spent in a week (50-60 gallons). No clue here either.

    Are either of you processing water with chloramines?
    Do you have high CO2 in your feedwater?
    Do you have your system set up such that it turns on/off frequently?

    I'm not sure how I would process water with chloramines.

    My pH from the tap is right around 7.6 to 7.7. I wouldn't think that that would indicate an abundance of CO2. And no, I only make water in big batches. I already know that smaller batches will burn up the DI resin quicker due to tds creep.

    That may be my issue.... I have my RO line straight to my sump. So it is constantly on/off. I will get that corrected this weekend, as I already have everything to setup my ATO, just been lazy. Now I have a perfect excuse to get it done ASAP! I will get it done, and post an update. Thanks Russ.

    Either you have chloramines in your tap water, or you don't. Are you on city water? What is the name of your water utility?

    We don't have chloramines Ben.

    Which brand DI are you using? I started out with BFS when I got my kit, I had nothing to compare it to. I tried BRS once and it went super quick, around what you guys are saying 60~ gallons. Back to BFS and it lasts a ridiculously long time for me. I change it every few months and I make at least 25g a week.

    Thanks, I will have to get some resin from them.

    I will have to use the rest of my BRS resin, so it will be a couple weeks before I place an order. Do we get a maast discount? And do we have to use a code?

    Thanks
