Breakin it in?


New member
I just installed my new six stage and I am wondering how long do I run it before it is ok to use. Like how long to break it in

How many gallons per day? Got a tds meter? That will tell you.

If not, run a few (5-10) gallons through it and discard. That should do it.

as a matter of fact, i just changed my filters yesterday..... right after installation (about 3 o'clock) my TDS meter read 19ppm(my tap is only 35). At about 6:30 TDS read 5ppm. At 10, 2ppm. Finally, at midnight(or around there) TDS read 0.... so id give it at least a half a day or so....oh yeah, and i had already flushed the new filters prior to installation....
