Posh

My New Ro System

Recommended Posts

Posh

Spent an hour flushing it. Connected it all up. Started the water & off the pump went. Water went from 276 to 008ppm. Came out very quick but when put it through the DI it slowed down but only had to use 1 4.5 litre Di. Toyed with the idea of taking a chance of using 008ppm but thought no got all day so ran it through the DI. Took 5 hours to make 300 litres. With twin DI it took me that long to do 150 litres so well chuffed with it. Think it a be even better with an outside tap. My water pressure from my kitchen tap is not very good but overall was pleased. A big thank you to RC for recommending it & for all his help. Top bloke.

I got the vyair 200gpd unit with a booster pump fitted to it. Very easy to set up (thanks RC).

It was £216 with delivery.

 

As with the tds of the waste water I didn't measure it but spose there's no reason why you couldn't use it for trad. Someone else might know.

Christ mark I could never get it that quick even when I used my girlfriends mums outside tap. I had to trickle it to keep ppm down. Maybe that I was using only 4.6 litres so only made 9 litres to get it down. You must be doing somet special lol

I can fill my 500lt tank in 30 mins using twin 25lt di...but i run it slower as read somewhere that would make the resin last longer?

 

I use about 250-300 ltrs a day ....what Ro would you say to get, we have good pressure round here if that helps?

4040's are good,

 

I have the same one as posh, and I use 400lts a day, plus sell about 10 25lt barrels to another window cleaner too,

 

I have it filling a static 1000lt ibc tank.

Mark, posh has only got 24psi water pressure from his tap hence the low volume

Hi guys i'm thinking of getting one of these Vyair 200GPD systems, but just wondered what DI vessel to use and how to connect it up?

Simple to set up. Then where your pure water comes out you connect it to your di. I only use a 4.5 litre one. The ro gets my water down from 276 to between 8-10ppm so I don't need one any bigger. It's also handy for putting in the van as sometimes when I'm at a house I know I'm gonna be at for 2-3 hours I take it with me & connect it to there outside tap & make a few litres there. There really is not a lot of setting up on the vyair. One hose is connected to your outside water tap. One sits in the flower beds or drain (waste) & one is yer pure water coming out. The pump starts & stops automatically when the water is turned on & off.
