I upgraded my ro/di unit, which really didn't necessarily NEED upgrading, but I did want to get po4/silica and co2 even lowr in my salt mixes.

In any event. I am running anion + mixed bed. But my tds is coming up 11-13 when it wwas at zero. I THINK the culplrit is I am using far too much anion to mixed bed ratio. before I change some of it out, i'd like to hear someone elses thoughts

Check the di canister and make sure it is packed tight. Earlier this week I had mass tds like you were having and it turned out to be a worn/bad di cartridge.
