I was also surprised at how hoppy the hydrometer sample was. Then it dawned on me that this was

The main reason I thought to remove them was maintenance costs. I suppose if they aren't really
doing anything they should last a really long time so the cost to maintain approaches nil.

I've been looking into upgrading my RO system as the under sink unit really isn't practical
