Left RO Membrane Flushing for a week

Above pretty much says it all. Accidentally left my membrane flushing for a week. Besides a high water bill, should I replace my ro membranes or anything else ?

Run some water thru it and check your tds and see if it is ok. I'm thinking it should be fine. You should see around 98% rejection rate on the tds.

Also, personally I would just give up on flushing. It does nothing on our consumer units.

I agree, it should be fine.
