I bought a 5 stage ro with a dual di from brs I works great and if I use it as top off right away it is fine but I have a 100 gal rubber maid that I keep it in and if it sits in that tub for a coulple of days when I use it as top off my skimmers go crazy fomming out more water than I put in.

There might be some sort of compound from the Rubber Maid that's causing trouble. I would try cleaning it with some vinegar. It's likely that the effect will drop over time, too, if it's from the container. Another possibility is that something is entering the water from the ambient air.

Make sure you keep the rubbermaid covered when your not using it, and if you didn't buy it new i'd toss it and get a new one.

Hmm, maybe something is getting into the water via the air, or maybe something else is being dosed?
