    You should still use a di after the ro or it won't be 000
    I get mine to 3 or 4 with just ro and don't use di but i am confident in my work
    As you are new and don't know the make up of your water (some people can use over 10 and be fine others get spotting with just 2 due to water make up) i would definitely run it through a di

    I'm Brighton based with a similar ppm (290-300)

    Personally just go for a triple DI vessel set up.

    So fill tank with tap water - pump - DI 3 (oldest resin) - DI 2 (less old resin!) DI 1 (new resin) - hose.

    As soon as DI 1 goes above 000ppm I take out DI 3, fill it with new and move the others down (2 is now the oldest resin etc)

    I go through around 1 1/2 bags a month.

    V easy and quick to fill up and crack on with work so suits me well.

    All the best with the new set up (whichever one you choose)

    allien i think that is great idea, not just the resin your saving but also the water i,m RO with the di fitted but the waste water ratio
    is totally over the top all that water down the drain not the best.
    this could be option

    Cheers Duncs.

    Winpro and SPC had been using the system for a long time before & helped me when choosing to set my system up that way.
