    hi guys, im new to all this and have a couple of questions, I am currently installing a di only system in my van. what's the best position for the DI? is it before the tank, i.e fill the tank through the vessel or after the tank i.e pump the tank through the vessel and into the brush? I've seen both mentioned but wandered which is best. also what's the best way to mount the di vessel in the van, I've seen mounting brackets online like this http://www.windowcleaningsupplies.net/product/Brodex-Steel-DI-Bottle-locating-bracket-8-inch-655 but why are they so expensive?! is there a cheaper one or different method you all use?

    cheers

    (will probably have a lot more questions along the way)

    as for mounting you could use a block of wood and a small ratchet strap then its secure but easy to move should you need to

    sorry i cant help the other question as im super new too!

    Hi, we have recently been in the same situation and decided, for us, we would fill the tank first, then run through DI vessel. We strapped the DI vessel securely to our tank frame as it's not going anywhere!

    I'm hoping to get a few pictures and I'll post them when I get a chance. I'm sure someone on here will help. Good luck.

    I would fill your tank up with pure water and not carry you di around with you

    cheers for the responses guys. looking like I will fill the tank through the di then not have to worry about carrying the vessel around and how to strap it down. plus save a bit of weight too, every little helps. lets just hope putting the kit together is as simple as it looks and sounds. very rare that things run smoothly though.

    as for the RO setup, its something I may consider in future but as I live in the west of wales im led to believe im in soft water area and therefore there will not be much benefit, although I may look at a twin DI setup.

    [SIZE=10.5pt]If your water is so say soft will still cost more in resin than using a ro/di static setup. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Other benefits of using a small ro/di static setup is you can make pure at home whilst you’re out working, Also knowing that the water when transferred into your van tank is always going to be pure if monitored correctly. If just using a di system the resin can be exhausted very quickly so can end up with high ppm in your van tank that then has to go through another di tank in the van to polish it off as your use it .[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]For high daily usage of water and/or to produce water on demand onsite on large jobs then fitting a 4040 RO/DI system into a van might be a better option. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Well that's just my thoughts anyways...[/SIZE]
