Hi all

Brought a second hand TMC v2 pure 50 a while back and it's starting to show some TDS on the meter so i guess i need to change the filters and membrane.

Do i need to use ones specific to this model or are there some generic ones that work?  Cheapest place to get whichever ones work best?

Cheers

Hey Tim

Measuring at the output of the Di resin stage and currently at 2 or 3

Just replace the di then to check if you need to replace the membrane you need a in line meter befor the di to see what the TDS is there, mine is normally 19, when it starts to go up then I change them.
But change the pre filters every 6 months

Following is half the price (i know it's only a couple of quid, but still...!)

Looks ok to me, I tend to get most of my stuff from osmotics and plan ahead so I have enough filters in stock for the year.
