    hi there all who know their stuff, ive been using this lately with an ordinary garden hose however it keeps bloating because of the pressure between the hose inlet and the ro.
    could someone suggest a suitable hose?
    this is a instant ro/di cart which you attach to inlet and clean. new-water-genie-mobile-ro-system-twin-20-hf4-membranes-4585-p.jpg

    I believe (perhaps wrongly) that your problem is not the hose.

    The RO can only handle so many LPM (liters per minute) so if the hose is providing more than that then the water will have to back up someplace.

    You may solve it by using a lower diamater hose but to be honest i would suggest when you see bulging just turn the tap down a bit.

    Sure one of the techy chaps will be along in a moment to put us right. :)

    The booster is only needed in hard water or low pressure situations (I believe)

    I see it is the Water Genie trolly you have. If you email Adam at 'The Cleaning Warehouse in Wolverhampton' he is quite the authority on them and a most helpful lad.
