    Hiya,
    It's incredibly easy.
    Just plug the clean output pipe into the DI unit. I put it into the end without the cap but can go either way.
    The the output of your DI is now super clean :)

    If it's not already filled, you need to pack the DI in fairly tightly, but not OTT and remember to use the sponges provided to keep it in the pod.

    You are really looking out for reading the output post DI.
    Might also be worth allowing the clean water to run though the I and discard it until it's constantly reading zero TDS.

    So have I got this rite then. From the out put on the unit I connect the di pod. Then on the output of the di pod I connect the tDs monitor. So that the tds is the last thing the clean new water passes. So it will read the water after it passed through the ro unit and di pod. Sorry I'm confuseing myself now.

    Yep spot on. Right at the end.
    If you had a dual TDS meter then you might want to read pre and post DI to confirm the membrane is in check too but with a single TDS meter, the output from DI is fine.

    Hi. I fitted my pod yesterday. All sorted. Just had to bend a piece of pipe round between the two end adapters and all neat. I've also put the tds at the new water end of the pod. So all happy. Sorry but one more prob daft question if I may. When I was fitting my pod I noticed on my round presure dail there is a small sticker showing a pair of sissors cutting something. And it reads cut after instalation. Any ideas what it means please. Regards. Marc

    Hi Marc,
    Sounds good. As for the scissors, it may be a rubber piece on top of the gauge which has a prominent nipple to be cut. Can you post a pic at all to confirm?

    Morning m8. Yeh that's exactly what it looks like. There is a rubber bung with a nipple on the top. And the picture shows a pair of scissors that look to be cutting the nipple. There is some oil in the dail. Like a bubble. Tmc told me this is normal. Didn't no weather it's to do with that. I will try and sort a picture. ASAP.

    Same as this then:

    Best to trim it as it will allow the reading to be more accurate. Hmm, maybe I should do my ones too, another task to the list.

    Yep, just the top and make sure you can see a little hole appear once cut and this will allow it to breathe and read more accurately.
