    If you process water from an r/o into a holding tank, then put the di after the r/o. Pure water from tank to van tank means that you don't need the di on the van as the water in your tank will be pure.

    I use 250litre tank and have to fill it up while working, I fill up through a ball **** at the top so is it just a case of having the out go into my ballcock connection and anytime I want to fill up just connect to my IN on the Di

    Tap to DI Vessel then into the tank on your van.

    Then install a second controller pump on your van tank to go to your second reel.

    The biggest problem that I can see is that the faster water flows through a DI tank, the less chance there is of you getting Pure out the other end i.e running 3l per min through a DI will give you pure. Trying to run 12l a min thorugh the DI won't give you pure as it is going through too fast to be purified.

    So, have a go and make sure that you still get pure at the brushes. Oh, and when you test this remember - your extension reel is currently full of pure which has previosly gone through your DI, so you need to run thourgh all of that with both pumps running before checing your TDS to give you an accurate reading.

    BTW, you will get better value from your Resin is you have 2 x DI tanks in line. So, when your TDS goes up, you take the tank nearest to the tap water and change the resin in that one, move the other DI closest to the tap water and your newly filled tank goes second. You do that each time the TDS goes up and you will get much better value out of your resin than using just one DI tank to process your pure.

    If you are filling quickly during the day and your current purifying method is working for you, then I would add another di for the other reel - so you will have 2 di's, one for each reel.
