    Hi everyone! Hope everyone is well.
    Joined on this Forum just now:)
    Been window cleaning now for 2 years and still enjoying it! ;)

    Down here in Westmidlands, Shropshire. The TDS reading for normal tap water is over 460! Going through bags of resins each month through the RO Sytem!

    Does anyone have the same issue?

    Hi Lukey,how much water do you produce a month as this would have a bearing on how much resin you use.I would think using a R/O system you would only need the resin to polish the water,maybe check the pre filters are correctly installed.

    Awsome mate!
    What a lovely place there too, have some great holidays there every year :) [hr]

    Hi there, ooo lol forgot to mention that... mmm use not that much to be honest, the resin what we go through now use to last me & my dad 6 months, but since the last few months have been going through it so much more quickly. We bought a brand new RO System 2 weeks ago and the same result :S
    Roughly though dad goes through: 2400 litres a month.
    I go to a little more about:3600 litres a month.

    Filters have been checked so many time but done loads of changes to see if its anything that could be the issue but no luck yet.


    Do you use the RO System?

    I use to RO but water from the tap is about 12-25 ppm so I just use a DI
    Have you checked the quality of the water going in,water pressure as I would think you should be changing filters only 2-3 months and resin about the same,have you check the water after the RO before the DI,it may be a damage rubber washer or a tube connected in the wrong place or the obvious one your TDS meter is knackered.

    Yeah. all going well so far. Just repricing all the properties at the mo (approx just under 700) on the last week of the first round since taken over and very pleased with myself.
    Looking into wfp in the new year hopefully. that will be the hubbys contribution as he is far more techniquly minded than me but works away alot at the moment and so we are stuck with trad till then as i wouldnt have a clue even with all the good advice on here :) lol but i can sell sand to the aribs tho :angel:
