    Hi guys!

    My DI Vessel was pumping out water at 003 so I decided to change the resin today to bring it back down to 000.
    My steps were:

    1) Emptied all the old resin etc
    2) Refilled DI Vessel to about 75-80% full
    3) Re-attached equipment.

    The problem is...THE WATER IS ACTUALLY WORSE THAN BEFORE!
    It's now coming out at a reading of 005!

    How's this possible? Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated!

    Cheers, Ben.

    Is the flow going in the right direction, inlet/outlet?

    Yeah I've not taken any of the hoses off the bottle lock. They're both colour coded with different ends so there's no way I can get them wrong otherwise they wouldn't attach :/

    Get a plastic cup fill it with resin then put a pin ***** on the bottom. Pour some water into the cup then measure the water when it starts dripping from the hole, if it reads 000 then you know its not the resin but your di vessel.

    Your riser tube will not be seated properly in the di head.
