    Hi,
    I
    Currently run a van set up with just a DI as the water is medium/soft in my area. So just fill up and go?
    Is it worth investing in a small RO (Merlin or something) to prolong the life of the resin or am wasting my money? Can I fill and go with a RO? or is there any other filters I could put inline?

    Thank,
    Attached is my set up when I rebuilt it to give a rough idea or the DI size

    Thanks, Twice a day it's only 350ltr, what about in line filters will they do anything? Sediment/carbon? Is there a RO you recommend?
