  1. Just found this on YouTube, quite helpful to be honest. Changing resin with tights. No typo here, it's true.

    Uses for spent resin?

    It's just a question I've had for some time. Is there anything you can use spent resin for, rather than just throw in the bin.. DIY projects etc? Just bought some sand for my brick pavers and wondered if resin could be used for something else too
  3. After the tap water tds has shot up and pressure has dropped I'm no longer getting 0ppm like I used to so for a short term fix I bought some resin and cleaned out my old resin chamber that hasn't been used for the past 7+ years. Last night I was getting 3ppm after the resin and I assumed it would settle to 0 pretty fast. (The input from RO is 14ppm) This morning I'm still getting 3ppm!? It's ok to work with but it doesn't make sense. Shouldn't resin take it down to zero and then slowly climb after the resin starts to get used up? Any ideas what is wrong? Thanks

    auto shut off for DI vessel

    Hi everyone, I filter my water just using a DI vessel as the tds reading where I live is low enough. I would like to install an auto shut off on my tank in the van. I've seen allot that are designed for RO filters, just wondering if there is anything for just DI vessels. I thought about using a float valve, but will this create a massive build up of pressure in the vessel if left for a long time, and would that be an issue? I hope that all makes sense. thanks John
  5. How long can you store resin? I normally buy small amounts (5ltr tubs) as I don't use a lot but due the the current shortage it only seems to be available in 25ltr bags.

    Saving Resin

    I'm looking for ways to save resin. The other day in the space of about 600 litres my PPM reading went from 004 to 065 and I didn't realise until the next day I have just bought a second canister and I will be keeping a closer eye on my PPM. Once I reach 006 I plan to run the resin through the the old resin and then through the new stuff. I purify it on site. On first time cleans I go round twice. I just ordered some bits to bypass the canisters altogether and just use tap water. My thoughts were that I could do the first time round with tap water and the new sill brush I just ordered and then go again with pure water. Can anyone with more experience than me see any potential issues with this? I Also thought this would be good for a conservatory roof where it needs a good scrub? Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated guys!!
  7. Hello my water is entering my tank in my van at a tds of 28. I then use a di filter on board to produce pure on demand however the tds is ready 3-4? And advice on this? Thanks.
  8. Any more news on the moody looking tulsion? Ordered a small bag and says it's genuine but Gardiner website says there is not any genuine stuff in the UK ATM?

    Upgrading my domestic kit

    Hi guys - I'm new here I've been a traditional window cleaner since 2004. 3 months ago by employee of 7 years dropped me in the **** by leaving without notice. I panicked, but before hastily employing someone else I bought a basic WFP kit to tide me over. Safe to say after 3 months of practice (thought it was faulty the first time I used it - awful!) I'm starting to think about moving up to some more 'professional' gear. At the moment I have an Unger nlite aluminium 22ft pole (Christ it's heavy at full length) and am using a Facelift backpack (22L) mounted to a trolley. I purify my water at home using the Unger Hydropower DI resin and decant it into barrels to take to work. I mix this and traditional ladder work to get me through any awkward houses that would otherwise require footing/imagination. However, I'm using a bag of resin a week (£91 for 4 bags) and sometimes running out of water during the day. What I'm looking at doing for the next 18-24 months is to upgrade my pole etc WITHOUT moving over to a full van spec setup as I want to do this when I buy a new vehicle. Have you guys got any favourite poles (probably not carbon as too pricey at the minute so hybrid probably more like it) and any other trolley/DI solutions that are less resin hungry? Any advice would be great as this WFP system is a mine field for beginners. Many Thanks Chris
