    evening guys. I can't use an RO system as I live in a 3rd floor flat. So I use DI vessels. However I have a tds reading of 289 so I'm thinking it might just be easier to buy water. What is the going rate ?

    Use a twin di and you will get approx. 5000lts from that tds reading

    The going rate round here is 4p a litre
    Cheaper to make 5000 litres for what the resin would cost

    It would cost 200 quid to buy it ..but if local a hell of a lot easier
    I know once i get my van sorted the guy said he can come to an arrangement
    He is good really as i have an account and can pay while I'm there or when i next go etc and he emails me a receipt at the end of the month for the taxman
    And only 2 miles away

    200 is a lot more than a bag of resin so I reckon I'll use a 2nd Di vessel . Cheers for the reply's

    Another option is to pop the twin DI vessels in the van and let the purification happen whilst at work eg

    Tap water in tank - pump - di vessel (pre filter with older resin) - di vessel (new resin) - hose - pole.

    I am 253 and go through roughly a bag a month (approx 5500L per month)

    I am a recent convert to this method and absolutely love it. It takes about 8mins to fill my 250L tank in the morning and off I go!
