Nitrate failures

Anyone else have good results from their RO apart from nitrate failing - levels 3.12 and 2.77 for example (as NO3)

Hi Ian,
Occasionally get readings >2 but not on double pass ROs.
However :  as I understand it the Renal Association limit for Nitrate was agreed to be 9 mmol/l.
The 2mmol limit was from the AAMI (?) limits and is thought to have referred to Nitrate as N rather than as NO3.

Regards
Chris
