No problem to disagree, that's that internet

So will you give a warranty service
on a failed water maker that followed your advice?
You are also placing your internet
searching above the real world experience and data of two people Tellie and myself who have thousands, literally THOUSANDS of Water Makers and Membranes (10's of thousands of membranes) sold to happy clients around the world using them. We don't just make **** up. Now Tellie is also a much nicer guy than I am...
...so he may not want to type as freely as I do. But...I spend so much of my time busting cruise
rumors that someone picked up online, I'm going to be a bit more forceful and not let it go.
We go through this dance all the time on the internet.
On one hand we have the word straight from two water maker manufactures, who provide Warranty on the membranes and water makers telling their customers (Spectra and Cruise
RO) that PG is preferred for long term pickling and storage of their water maker and membrane. Our advice has a warranty cost to us if we give bum advice, real money
out of our pocket, plus a damaged reputation.
Then on the other hand, we then have someone giving advice contrary to the advice of the water maker manufacturer based on his internet searching, after admitting he had never heard of such a thing before.
Look, this isn't a personal issue or attack.
JstaRebel could be the nicest guy around and have decades of knowledge in the Municipal and Industrial RO world. But with all due respect, giving advice contrary to the manufacturers is how cruise and internet rumors get started and I just have to call bullshit on that because it is a disservice to the Cruising Fleet. It would be totally different if JstaRebel was bringing some data or first hand experience to the table showing pickling results with Metabisulfite compared to PG, and comparing those to the experience of Tellie and Myself have seen over the years.
But come one...an internet search now trumps the manufacturers real life experience?
