    My ppm is around 60. Got twin di vessels in the garage and fill straight to the tank. Try di, it won't cost the earth. Resin £70, di vessels on ebay cheap too.

    A mate of mine lives in a soft water area, but only carries 3 or 4 barrels in his motor. He works in a hard water area and tops up on the go. Difficult for him as his resin will not last long doing this.

    As above to start with using the twin DI route,

    A cheap RO would take about an hour to fill 25 litres, a 4040 would be more like 5 minutes with the right pressure input.
    these are the 2 ends of the scale for what window cleaners use.

    a final DI polish is usually still required

    Just make sure you do check your PPM.

    Nothing like filling a tank with 50PPM water :Image3: :Image3:

    I have twin di for my 90ppm water works well and resin seems to last a good while that way, I check ppm after first di and 2nd di every fill so far everything going into tank is 000ppm the 1st di is currently at 006
