Re: desired reading on a TDS

Kelly you ask some valid questions. I think what you
need to consider is that there is no "target" tds
reading. rather if your RO produces water with a tds
of 4ppm and your tanks are at 300ppm you have a
reading of the pollution level in your tank. the rise
from 4ppm to 300ppm is the pollution level. What we
strive for is to keep it as close to 4ppm as we can
manage. Consider the bare bottom tank at 30ppm since
there are far less places for organics to accumulate
and waste is easily siphoned off. Search the archives
also for more info on teh subject there is a ton. If
you need more assistance thats what were here for.
Good luck.
