    Have been Searching to find out the exact process of the reach and wash system! Could someone make a tutorial??

    Like from the tap in my garden? Where does the water go? Then the process til it's coming out the pole on to the glass? Tap>di?>ro?>tank>pump>pole? I'm lost

    Got a van, is there any point in having 2 water tanks?

    Hate being stupid but I just can't figure it out.

    If you're in a hard water area, you'll need an RO filter & store the water in an IBC tank. If soft area, then just DI. So the process would be something like this-

    Tap>RO (if need be)>IBC tank(if need be)>Tank in van>Pump>DI filter?Hose reel>Pole.

    Hope that helps?

    Cheers, lol that's what I needed, waiting on TDS meter coming.

    Water company tell me its soft/moderate soft. What sort of limit would you need the ro? The 1 I was recommended is £500 odds!

    I'm DI only mate so not sure what the cut off would be really. My water is about 35ppm out the tap, I think there's a thread on hear about MarkM using DI only at 200 or something...I'll look out the thread.[hr]

    Worth a read.

    Cheers buddy! It is all still very a confusing setup!! Lol. Can the ppm of water rise after it has been treated? Hoping this tds meter arrives today.

    it is a little confusing when you don't know but it is fairly straight forward. watch some of mark m's videos in the video section etc this may help a little too.

    Cheers mate, For some Reason I can't watch all the vids on my iPhone so will get laptop on to***ht. Once I get everything set up I was maybe going to ask a local company that uses wfp to take me out a day just to see it all working.

    No, doesnt make any difference mate, just make sure you know when the resin is about to go off, as you could end up with a tank full of 'un-pure' water. It also takes longer to fill your tank this way, but that may not be an issue.
