System is brand new, gaskets are installed on top of the two DI filters. What's causing the water to trickle down the inside of the 2 RODI chambers?

Thats odd. Mine is Spectrapure as well. It came all set up or did you have to do any connections?

How long have you let them run? The water will travels down the outside and then up thru the middle of the DI cartridge. The canister may not fill all the way up with water.

Disregard my post. It's normal for it to do that as per Spectrapure.

I ran the system and unscrewed each canister and purged the air until they filled up with water. The instructions said it's ok for normal operation for it to have air and not fill up with water but if using the auto shut off valve the canisters need to be purged of air.
