That is why a $15 TDS meter is worth it. If I measured a machine putting that high TDS out, I would not buy thatnwater, I would walk away.


Yep, I've literally walked away from several RO machines. Thanks to Martin for giving us the good info.
+ 1 for sure!

Ha, now I don’t feel so geeky about bringing my TDS meter into stores and getting funny looks.

I'm so used to the funny looks I don't even notice anymore.  :D

Yes, and I had to walk away so often that I bought a home RO device.  Cost about $240 for the whole set up (including UV) and I figure it has almost paid for itself in a year (we use it for drinking water too).
Many of us would be on a strict liquid diet if it weren't for pretzels.
