Two of my friends used these membranes this year and said they are excellent. I see that they have a new website up. www.mapleexperts.com seems like it is a really good membrane.

I would like to see a flow comparison to other membranes. Not just to say x amount better than " other membranes"

They do have a chart on the website comparing MES to other common membranes.
It looks to me like it is similar to a NF-270, it just can run at a higher pressure?
Also I thought I read that Atlantic RO membranes were in the $6-700 range?
could be wrong. Worth looking into I quess.

Seems closer to XLE which you can get for $675 from Atlantic

i asked them the difference between mes and xle. this is what i got back. "Mes and xle flow roughly the same pure water flow. But when it comes to sap and membranes get dirty the mes membrane outflows the xle big time. Tests show a 10% increase."
