    Posted: July 15 2016 at 6:36pm
So I bought this a ro unit off face book and it is crazy slow.. Like 25 gallons a day, not nearly enough to keep up with water changes and top offs in my two tanks. So does anyone use tap water in Murray? I looked at the report and tds is an average of 180-300. I honestly have no idea what that means.. Well I know what tds is but I don't know what an acceptable range is. Would a faucet filter and say using prime work till I can afford a bigger ro?? Any help is appreciated.

Depending on the type of unit it's pretty easy to change the membrane and the flow restrictor to increase the output of the unit.

Do you have pictures of the one you got out know the brand and model?

You can buy the new membrane to fit that from BRS. They also sell the flow restrictor there. A 75 gallon per day membrane should do great for you.

Yes. The end of that tube should unscrew to change out the membrane.
