    in the last month i can c that the R/O water parameters are as follows:
    kh 0
    gh 0-1
    conductivity - 70 ppm !!!
    the conductivity was about 30-35 before a few months - does it mean i need to change the mimbrane? or is it still good for my plants (toninas n eriocaulons)

    one more question - if ill move from 50gpd to 100gpd - do u think the water parameters (kh/gh/conductivity) will be worse?
