Safe or not?

Recommended Posts

My street has been doing water pipe changes and stuff for the past week and they are still not done. Once the water is back on, it's quite dirty plus there's a smell.


All my water for tanks go through RO first but not sure if my filters are enough to handle all that.


Should I make RO water and do my water change or skip a week or two?

Maybe TDS readings going into the RO unit and TDS readings coming out of the RO unit will help see if the cartridges need replacement?

But I have RO/DI so what if it's just DI getting TDS to 0 while other filter parts are no longer working?


My water isn't hard. Only 45-49 TDS tap

I would shut the RO/DI down for a week and it will allow the new pipes to flush. In the mean time I would just get store bought RO and do the WC. Ten gallons can be had for $3.50 (@ .35¢ a gallon) or distilled water $1+ a gallon. A lot cheaper than replacing filters and resins.
