    Hello Chaps, i know some people on here say it's ok to clean with 10ppm but i can't even get to 002 without it getting really bad and my tap is only 100ppm average. Any thoughts?

    I worked with 007ppm other day whilst waiting for resin, it dried the same as 000ppm does. Not sure when it would start to leave spotting can't take the risk. Make sure your water tester is calibrated and isn't a cheap one as if it's reading wrong it could be higher than you think. Hm digital ones should be used ideally.

    Thanks Chris, that was my next question, i do use a hm digital one, but i wonder if i should get the stuff to calibrate it. Worked all day with 002 yesterday and when i got home i decieded to clean my windows. 30mins later there where in a right state, white chalky shadows and clear spotting. But i live right on a canel and next to a industrial unit kicking out all manner of pollutants so i wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    If anything blows over whilst they still wet quite possibly could wreck them. I would clean my brush out completely aswell and leave to soak in pure overnight aswell.

    Mine was spotting at 004 last week.

    My only thought is to use 000ppm.

    I change my resin as soon as I see 001 gives me peace of mind

    Mone fluctuates quite a lot. Seen it anywhere from 098 - 230

    Could be worse

    I use up to 010 at the most never have a issue it sounds like the air pollution has got on the glass wile it's drying could also be the sun drying them to quick and causing spotting maby this time of year I rince a lot more when the sun is out

    Gone up to 008, a rare time 012 . No problems. But I aim for 000 readings.
