    Well was Gona go di as that's what the others use in this area and I don't like idea of wastage.

    I have a few questions.

    Is it just a standard garden hose I need that connects to the pole?

    Can I use standard garden tape size fixings on my tank?

    My plan was( please tell me I I have this wrong)

    A tank with a hose connector at the top which I can plug in at home to fill the tank, a garden tap at the bottom with a pipe that goes to the pump, the pump, then a pipe to the di, then the di is hosed into a 50m hose on reel, this hose plugs into wfp and has a tap so I can adjust the pressure/flow.

    Lol



    Is this right??

    Micro bore hose for connecting your hose to your pole

    Yes you can.

    You may need to add the house connection thing, There a big 6inch llid on the tank you can fill in like that. I have the garden tap on my tank.

    I go... House tap > Hose > DI Vessel > Hose > Water in to tank

    Then Tank > Tap > Hose to pump > Pump > Outlet hose > To Pole

    The only problem doing it your way is you will have to check the PPM a lot. You could be cleaning window and your PPM is really high. With the way I go it, I just check the water after I turn house tap on, then check the reading half way through filing, then check again after Im done.

    Your better asking someone else though Ive just stated with WFP. I could be doing it wrong well it wroks for me so its all good
