    Good Morning Russ.

    Any chance you could send me some pictures of your RO with the posts connected in series? I have a vision in my head but I would like to see someone elses config to make sure I am ok.

    Thanks again for your response.

    My membranes are connected in series. I'll have to get the actual number when I start ROing again but I think I was getting 12% on the first pass. I know that I was getting 20% on the second pass.

    Hi Scott, here's a picture of the back side of my RO. The output from the high pressure pump goes to the front side of the right tower. The output from the right tower goes to the input of the left tower and then out of the outlet from the left tower to the pressure control valve.
