Bad Taste To RO Pure Water

If you are experiencing a bad taste in the Pure Water, the RO Membrane or Stage 5 Carbon filter maybe depleted and needs to be replaced. Please follow the steps below to determine if the membrane and or stage 5 carbon filter needs to be replaced.

  • Fill up a clean cup of water from the RO Unit.
  • Take a Pure Water TDS reading with the supplied TDS Digital Meter that came with the RO unit.
  • Fill up a second cup of water from the Tap.
  • Take a Tap Water TDS reading.
  • RO units are designed to remove 90-95% of Contaminants and Impurities. Please make sure the RO unit is removing this percentage.
  • If the unit is not removing 90-95%, give the tank a complete flush, and let the unit refill the tank.
  • Once the tank is full, take another Pure water vs. Tap water TDS reading.
  • If the TDS is still high and the Bad Taste persists, the membrane and stage 5 carbon filter maybe depleted and needs to be replaced.
  • If the TDS is within range, but Bad Taste persists, the Stage-5 Carbon filter maybe depleted and needs to be replaced.
