Where are you checking the water quality? You may want to disconnect the blue plastic line which is the output line to the freshwater tank. This line comes from the watermaker control panel and connects to a copper pipe which empties into your freshwater tank. This line has now pressure and has a flow rate based on the capacity of your water maker which is 60 liters per hour. Test that water.
It is possible that the water maker is running at too high pressure and that the HP gauge is not accurate. What rate does the clear flow sight glass show? It should read no higher than 60.
Were the O rings replaced? It is possible that an O ring was damaged in the replacement. Saltwater may be passing by a damaged O ring. In my experience, new membranes will provide close to 100PPM when new and degrade to about 300PPM in 3-4 years.
Based on the information you provided, that is the best I can do for you.
