Just brought a inline dual tds monitor.
Was wondering the best place to have the sensors. It says normally one would go on the tap water line and one on the ro water out line, but says can be place anywhere to suit your needs, just wondered if it would be having one after the filters (or not worth it)and one after the Di resin pods? I maybe overthinking things again

I have mine on the tap water line and after the DI chamber. I don't see the point in using the dual tds meter any other way.  All I need to know is what's going in and what's coming out but it's  probably beneficial having a triple tds meter to measure input, then after the filters and then after the DI chamber. Would make it easier to determine what needs changing and when. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks:

Personally I'd have it after the membrane and after the DI. THat way you can see if the membrane needs a flush or if the DI needs replacing.

That's what I was thinking but wasn't sure

BRS make an interesting point about using a pressure guage to measure how the sediment filter is performing.

I use two dual inline TDS meters.
I have one on the waste out line so when I am flushing the system I can see the tds increase when i start the flush and when it comes back down to (in my case) about 40 it’s good to go and the other is after my di pod.

My second tds meter,,, I run dual membranes so I have both of the sensors after my membranes so I can see the condition of my membranes. Doing this gives you a good indication of weather your membranes need replacing or not.

Hope that makes sense
