Yesterday I opened and used some DI resin from Spectrapure for the first time - have always used BRS - and am having some issues with it. Just wondering if anybody else has experienced this....
When I opened the package, there was a rather foul smell to the resin but I didn't think too much of it. Refilled the canister and began running water. When I first turned the water on I checked the TDS meter .... and to my surprise the reading was well over 273 (77 with incoming water before RO). The tds continued to drop but after running at least 8 gallons through it is still reading 10 and does not seem to want to drop any further. The other thing is that the water that is being produced smells terrible ..... literally like something decaying.
I've never had anything like this happen with the BRS resin ..... has never been any odor and after a few gallons at most tds reads zero and has never ever started in the hundreds!
I didn't change the ro membrane or other filters ..... carbon and solid filter were changed about a month ago and membrane about 3 months ago.
I've sent an e-mail to the company to see what their response is but in the meantime just curious to know if anyone else has had this problem?
