Culligan Compatible TFM-18-A Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Culligan Compatible Membrane, the TFM-18-A.
Now this membrane is designed to fit into a number of Culligan reverse osmosis systems, including the AC15 and the H8. It replaces a whole list of Culligan part numbers, but the most popular and well known numbers that it replaces are the 01, 0001-45 and the 004493-72.
Now itís manufactured by GE Desal so itís a good quality membrane, and it does what membranes are supposed to do, it removes 95% of total dissolved solids. Now total dissolved solids are just about anything in your water. Some of itís really nasty and some of it is completely harmless, but membranes remove 95% of it.
Now knowing when your membrane is exhausted requires the use of a TDS meter. You measure how much total dissolved solids is being removed from the water, and when you drop below 80% removal, that means the membrane is exhausted and needs to be replaced.
The rule of thumb is typically every two years, but if you have a high level of TDS youíll probably need to replace it more often than that. Again, this is the Culligan Compatible, genuine GE Desal Membrane TFM-18-A, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
