Has anyone experienced high TDS with RO Right? My last water change my TDS jumped up alot. I checked the water before and after mixing and it was over 200 ppm after adding the buffer. Base level out of my RO/DI unit is 0. It this anything to be concerned about?

Seems like this is an old problem:
from a 2012 post
"Hello friends,

I added RO Right to my 32 gal holding tank where its 100% RO water with a TDS of 8 and a ph of 6.4. After 30 minutes of adding RO Right, my TDs hit 210 and ph hit 7.8. From what I understood from previous posts from people using RO Right, this was not suppose to happen. I am glad I checked the TDS and ph before I did my water change as I could have shocked the fish. The TDS is my breeding tank was 65/70."

I will say I have noticed about a 100TDS difference in new jar vs bottom of old jar of SaltyShrimp GH/KH. Using same volume. Which may be because its pretty hygrophilic, but it was a pretty big scare and just reinforced me to always break out the TDS meter before adding to the tank :-/
