Well water can have a very high CO2 level and shortens considerably the life of DI resin, if you use a RODI unit for water. I have a well and de-gas my water prior to the DI cartridge.

Before de-gasing the DI only last about 2 months (about 50 gallons per week). By de-gassing the DI resin now lasts about 14 months.
