    I still don't understand why you are needing to use Prime before water is pushed through your RO/DI unit. If anything, that will raise the TDS and eventually shorten membrane and resin life. If it is chloramine you are worried about, they make catalytic carbon blocks for that purpose. I just don't see the Prime doing you any favors.

    So can I get rid of the garbage can? lol sorry to sound excited but It's been a dread having to use two buckets instead of one.

    Yes, you shouldn't need it. First, make sure whether or not your municipal supply uses chloramine. If it does, you'll need catalytic carbon blocks instead of regular carbon blocks. One of the arrangements found here would be ideal if your tap has chloramine and it will negate the use of your dual garbage can systems. Just be sure to test on a regular basis and take the precautions that Ace does. A bit of Prime in the product water to be safe seems like a good idea regardless.
