Yes, the carbon filter helps if you don't have RO water to flush the membrane with. But activated carbon filter media only has a relatively short active lifespan. One friend uses a Brita water pitcher to create water for backflushing the membrane, as the Brita filter is designed to remove most of the chlorine. He says it seems to work without any damage to the RO membrane but YMMV.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
