Q:  I just changed my RO membrane and the TDS seems high.  What is wrong?

A:  It is common for the TDS to be elevated after replacing the membrane in an existing Reverse Osmosis system.  There is a preservative in the membrane that must be thoroughly flushed out before the TDS readings will lower and settle down to the desired levels.  This can take up to two weeks.  Be sure to flush the system at least three times after changing the membrane.  Some systems can take longer.
The problem occurs for even longer periods when an item like the tank is replaced.  The bladder inside of the tank has an NSF powder "Mold Release" used in the manufacturing process.  A new tank can create elevated TDS readings until all of the "Mold Release Powder" has dissolved and been flushed from the system.  Perform several extra flushes over a week or two for a new tank.

Check to see if the drain line is pinched.  Be sure that the hole in the drain saddle is still lined up with the hole in the drain pipe.  If the drain line is not free of all obstructions it will force too much pressure back onto the membrane and cause a higher TDS level of water through the membrane.  The TDS must be carried away to the drain.  This too is why the proper size of flow restrictors are so important.

Another potential problem is bacterial or biofilm growth.  If the system was not properly sanitized during the last filter or membrane change it could grow bacteria or a biofilm.  Either usually takes a few weeks to "bloom" and create a problem, usually resulting in system shutdown.
