    Hi
    Am new to this forum and am just starting up.
    Have just bought van and Brodex E250RO system, but am not sure of
    the correct procedure of filling the water tank.
    Do you use the hose you use for cleaning the windows to fill the tank,
    or can you use a garden hose, would you have to buy any fittings for whatever method.
    Can I fill the water tank from the kitchen tap inside my house or has it got to be from an
    outside tap, can anyone help.

    Hi & welcome Bob

    Does the system include outside ports on the side of the van?

    If so did the package include a garden hose to connect to an ouside tap & another hose for the ro waste water that you would connect to the fill & waste ports?

    Hi Bob,

    It might be an idea if you take a couple of photos of what you have.

    If you have bought a van with just a di system in it, then I'm sure you will have to add an r/o in the London area. Brodex do two systems; Di only for soft water areas and r/o mounted for hard water areas.

    So the process will be.

    Water from tap, preferably outside due to hoses, leaks etc. to reverse osmosis pre-fliters, r/o membranes, di vessel to polish out the remaining impurities that escaped the membranes and into the van tank. (Size of hose from tap to prefilters is usually 1/2" garden hose or equivalent.) Then the water is pumped from the van's tank, through the hose reel to the brush head.

    Some of us have the r/o in our garage/shed and process water into a 1000 litre IBC tank. We then transfer what we need into the van each morning.

    Hi
    Ports are on the rear of the van,there was no garden hose with package.
    There is a small hose for the RO waste water.

    If you don't have an outside tap best get one fitted rather than trying to use a sink tap.
    Then all you do is connect a garden hose reel to the inlet port & hose to the waste port on the van. Idealy the waste hose should go to the nearest drain. Then just turn the outside tap on and the system will fill the tank and cut the water off automatically when full so then turn the outside tap off and your done.

    It would be best as suggested already that you post some picks of exactly what you have
