Space, did you measure again? I had 002 on my tds reading last week. I cleaned the container with RO and tested again, and it came in at 000

To answer your question, you will get a mixed review cause noone will want to go outside of the 000 reading since there is a likelihood of introducing unwanted elements.


i have used 001 and started having red slime with GFO and chemi elite running.

had to nuke the tank with red slime remover and hasn't come back. performed huge water changes, switched to different water supply and no return. too much info ;x

You convinced me to hook up the di

now watch for my next post about how i cleaned up after the flood from me working on my own plumbing to hook this up. Thanks for the info and advice
