This is your quarterly reminder for you to check your reverse osmosis water system's filters and membrane.

All systems should get the filters replaced at least annually. If you have poor water to begin with, you may need to change out more often. Our high quality FilmTec membrane will last from three to five years, if the filters are replaced regularly.

Air Water & Ice has not had a price increase in 4 years while we have absorbed the price increases from our suppliers. As a result, in early 2011, we will be increasing our store prices. If you want to take advantage of our old prices ... buy before the end of the year.

We do appreciate your business and are happy to help in any way!

Sincerely, The Staff  at Air, Water & Ice

I make 4-10 gallons per week (sometimes every other week) - how often should I be changing out the prefilters?

It depends on a bunch of variances. I know that the TDS from the faucet by you is like 150 as I lived right around the corner unless some pipes by you are in worse shape. But I would figure it by the TDS readings from a meter. If its 1-10, typically you change out the resin from the DI and your good to roll. But it varies.... Most people say change it once a year, some more often pending on the readings.....

My TDS is around 150ish from the tap. Typically < 8 or so from the RO and always 0 from the DI.

Well if you are at 0 from the DI, you are good. When the readings from the filters become 15+ and the resin doesn't bring it to 0. Its time to change. But we have very good water here, so its not typically what others change theres at. People always just say to keep and eye on it and when its above 0, time to change the DI and if that doesnt work, change the rest. Mines been at 0 for just about year here and I'm betting that I will have to change it this winter
