    Default CDL hobby 250 RO

    Just curious on what people are seeing for concentrate levels on a CDL 250 first pass? I would like to have a RO get to 6-8% first pass. It seems all the hobby ro's just double. Am I asking to much out of a RO without breaking the bank? Can the CDL 250 do that without fouling the membranes? Thanks for the help

    I don't know about the CDL 250 but I was at Bascoms open house on may 3rd and 4th and purchased a Leader Micro 2 RO. The Leader sales rep told me this machine would take 2% sap to 6%-8% in one pass and do 180-200 GPH. Hopefully this is all true, I would like to be able to trust the sales reps I guess we shall see!!!!

    We are in the same boat. Just trying to decide which one will do the best for our operation.

    There is a mini extreme in the classified section that is 7500, that will do what you want to do and its brand new.

    I would say that they lowered the price, that's a good buy for sure.
