    Just a quick question. What sort of flow rate would you expect through twin DIs?

    It takes me about 7 minutes to fill a 25l container. Does that sound about right? I was expecting quicker.

    Cheers!

    it all depends on your water pressure but if you have got time the slower you fill with a di vessel the longer the resin will last

    That's pretty quick tbh. When I used to fill 25L containers they took about 12 minutes, but the tap was flowing slow to preserve the resin.

    BTW my TDS has jumped from 003 yesterday to 010 tonight. So it's time to change the resin. Always check your water purity.

    Ok, thanks guys.

    How much of an effect does flow rate have on the resin then?

    All depends on the tap tds - the higher the tds & flow rate the more resin you will get through. Simples...

    Fair enough, cheers.

    I'm not the most patient person so will probably just run the tap full blast and hope for the best. ;-)
