    Hi, is there such a thing as duff new resin?
    i'm using the resin in a DI section of the RO
    The water is going in to the DI at 30 ppm
    when I change the resin, it comes out at 000ppm but after a couple of hours begins to rise,
    after 12 hours use its up to 012 ppm
    so basically I'm changing it 2 or 3 times a week!
    Resin is Tulsion purchased from Bayersan, 5 litres, arrived in a plain plastic bag, not a Tulsion sack I expected, so presumably it's decanted from a larger bag, could that be a reason?

    There is a poster on another forum complaining about Tulsion resin he bought from Corwood & Co not performing.

    Ive had the same problem mate i filled an 11 litre vessel with tulsion 115 mb only produced a small amout and tds shot up
    After that i bought a RO system as that was only £20 more than a bag of new resin .

    I think Bayersun sell the lower spec resin MB-111. Your ppm is way too high for only 5 litres, What size is your di vessel as at 30ppm you really need a 11litre vessel min.

    If you leave your vessil direct in the sunlight there is a risk of damaging your vessel and cracking the resin beads in this extreme heat

    I've never found resin not to perform, the biggest issues have been faulty risers and in this heat they are prone to it. Also if they have the di head that comes from China with 2 "o" rings there is always a risk of damaging them.

    Lastly the amount of dodgy fake TDS meters that give incorrect readings are also a huge factor

    Thanks for all the replies!
    I THINK I've trackrd down the problem to a disc of foam breaking up! I put it in the DI to stop the beads leaking into the water.
    If that doesn't make a difference I'll try a higher grade resin...
