    Firstly iv had my system now 3-4 weeks and filling a 250 tank around 3-4 times a week atm and today its started to raise to around 2-3

    is this about right ? as i thought it would last a bit longer than 3-4 weeks before it started to raise.

    its a 11l di
    it comes out of the tap at around ppm 40-50 as well so its pretty clean anyway

    I'll use it to around 8-10 then i'll change the resin

    Also i may try to use 2 di vessels or is there any other sort of filter i could use to drop the ppm a bit before di

    looking at the calculator using 1000ltr a week would last about 3.4 weeks, so sounds about right
