    Well water?

    Hi everyone.
    We recently moved to the country and were on well water here.I was wondering what effect if any this may have on my RO/DI unit? we dont have a water softener however there are no signs around any of the faucets or taps suggesting that we have hard water...any ideas?
    Thanks

    Have you measured the TDS of the well water? If it is high in TDS it will just wear your filters out sooner. That's all.

    You should also make sure that you have enough water pressure for the RO/DI unit. Wells are notorious for low wate pressure.
