    If you already have them then they are ideal - if not then for less of an investment you could get an IBC tank. Obviously they take up more room but I brought a blue 1000ltr tank which was brand new for £50 from a place near me. SUMA containers I think they are called.

    That's not a bad price really, you can squeeze that type in whenever you like too as they are tall and narrow. Do you use rainwater too or are you just putting your processed pure in to store? Now I have added a down pipe filter to my rainwater tank the TDS is always below 10ppm (usually 7) so just needs a quick resin polish as its being transferred to my van. Saves me using my RO as much especially this time of the year.
