    Default storing ro membranes

    I plan on storing them in my membrane housings. My ports are 1/4". Are there plugs to do this? I haven't seen any.
    If that doesn't work I'll use 3" pvc and just cap it off and seal it with gorilla tape and leave them upright somewhere in the basement.

    I use these shut offs to be able to stop the lines from running while I'm working with the RO switching barrels and to keep the system full between uses. I will be using them to store the full membrane for the off season as well.

    Gord that seems like a good idea?
    110 taps W.F Mason 2x3 and two turkey friers for finishing

    2011 expanding to a Mason 2x4 with a blower increasing taps to about 200
    2011 Hurricane Irene rips thru my small sugar bush cost me to lose 20% of taps
    2014 I have reworked my lines for 2014
    32 taps on 5/16 line with check valves
    57 taps on 3/16 line with check valves
    55 buckets with total tapped trees of 144

    Keep it simple. Just loop the tubing around so it forms a closed system.

    Never understood people buying PVC pipe and glue to make more enclosures.
