Water fed pole system with TDS readings

Recommended Posts

Smithshomeandgarden

Hi 

im new to the whole WFP System, and trying to get my head around RO and DI, I bought a handheld TDS meter and tried it on my water at home and comes back as 44ppm would that be correct from a household tap I was told it could be 150ppm, I’m not sure.

thanks

If the reading is correct then you only need to go the DI route. R/O will only be beneficial when you get to the stage of 1000's of litres a week, and even then will be marginal.

Scotland is a soft water area, but I am surprised it's that low, it might get a bit higher but not much I don't think, @Chris33 might know as he isn't to far away from you in the Fife area

You could also consider buying a cheap small RO and skip the DI completely, making 0ppm straight from the RO. Works for me at slightly higher ppm.
