Default Ro membrane options.

After reading from the other site. Word is Joe from altlanticro has passed and he personally made adaptors for the xle membranes. Well the design went to his grave with him. What are some different options for membrane and housings? Read a lot of the past threads on builds and think that maybe you guys have some opinions for a guy that was sold on the xle until Joe the RO expert passed.

I believe the adapters they were talking about are for an 8 inch membrane.

You could also ask Bill at Midwest RO. I think Bill is related to Joe (deceased). I had great service with Bill and he is familiar with maple, but not an expert in maple RO applications. He is an expert with RO however.

If you have an existing adapter that is too large, any competent machining shop can turn it down to the smaller size. They should also be able to copy a smaller plug to make a larger one.
