I forgot to stamp his passport lol, As said, the other pond runs slightly lower KH/GH and tds, but over the years I have let the KH drop to just over 1 which brought the pH to 7.2 ish and then just managed it at that.
Plan is to get the KH down to 1, and see where the pH settles at, I may buffer the KH until the GH has been driven out and then start a mix of RO and source water to get it where I want it.
It may be that when the pond mellows and finds it's own balance I may not need the RO, only time will tell.
You supply water is good so it will be easier to run yours a little harder where i have to be a bit careful as i can trash membranes if i run it to hard.
As long as you keep the waste output below 900-1000 its much better thats why i think you will be OK. One thing i would do if i was you would be to add a auto flush system (speak to Alan) to flush out the system regularly as i have found that works a treat and has made a big difference to me on my systems.
Good luck mate..................your need it now your playing with RO lol
