Can you link me the model you are looking at?Hi, I hope all is well. Came to resurrect this as it seems easier. If it’s ok maybe we could do a direct message. I think this will wrap it for me. My major pieces are here and the countdown to dropping a seed has begun. I have decided to get the RO because if I’m inviting these ladies in they need to be treated right. Would you do a 7 stage with re-mineralization, or is that overkill? Remembering we will be drinking and using it for coffee. Yes, the amount of water we buy made the decision easier.
About the RO/tap split ratio. In the report I shared with you we draw from two wells, one with a sodium of level of 33.9ppm and the other at 70ppm. Would you split it differently or just not use it? I spoke with the plant manager. He doesn’t know why they don’t list the cal/mag and just lump it in a hardness level. The remineralization puts those two, among others back. I’m sure at acceptable levels. Thank you for any advice.
I'll prob call the manufacturer to find out what being put back but it's like going to be ok. You want to know what is the starting water.
Now ideally if ya don't know and there is a possibility of say high sodium or it has a high ppm then you want a 3-4 stage. 3 stage would be sediment, carbon and RO resin ppm of around 10-30 (I think not used one) 4 stage would add a demonizing resin (ppm of about 0-2) these numbers are new filters after flush.
If doing a whole house I think a water softener then an RO for taps that will be used for potable water would make sense to me but probably better to ask a professional that. RO for a whole house is gonna produce a lot of waste water if you get billed on consumption.
