How long should a reverse osmosis system last?
In this regard, how often do reverse osmosis filters need to be replaced?
Additionally, does RO water go bad? Water Can Keep Forever. RO/DI water is water that is passed through semi-permeable membrane and filtered. This leaves pure water that is free of nutrients, contaminates, minerals and microbes. Since there is nothing in RO/DI water to cause a bitter taste or toxins over time, it can last virtually forever.
Simply so, how do you maintain a reverse osmosis system?

- Shut off the valve on the top of the reservoir tank.
- Replace your carbon filters at least once a year.
- Replace your sediment filter(s) at least once a year.
How do I know if my reverse osmosis membrane is bad?
Little water pressure is a sign that there is a problem with your reverse osmosis water filter. If the water pressure is below about 40 PSI, then check both the storage tank, RO membrane or the water filters to see if one of them needs to be replaced.
