    Last week I moved out of my house which was in a very soft water area (well below 100ppm) and have moved into a holiday let. There's an outside tap here that I can use to fill my tank. I knew the water was going to have a high TDS so I bought 6 bags of resin to see me through until I get an RO sorted in my new house (which I can't move into until late August). I checked the TDS as I was filling up tonight and it was coming through at 003ppm after around 350 litres after previously coming through at 000ppm. I did a reading on the tap water, almost freekin 600ppm. It's killing my resin :eek:. I phoned the lady that's bought my house and have offered to pay her water bill for 6 months if I can fill up there every night plus a free window clean now and then. Thank f0ok she has agreed to it or I'd be back on the ladders come Wednesday :confused:

    Sounds like good drinking water, put hair on your eyes. Thats not good news about ppm, but you have a short term solution thankfully.

    Not an ideal situation by any means. I've wasted £50 worth of resin tonight. I run twin DI and one went up to around 050ppm with new resin in it after tonight's fill :eek:

    I'm living in a holiday let for the next 8 weeks at least :confused:. No provision to set an RO up here. Going back to my old house to fill up is my only option unfortunately :(. I'm going to get one of those all singing all dancing RO set ups from Purefreedom when I move.

    Blimey!

    Mines at around 480 and I thought that was high!

    I have a fairly cheapo RO unit (was £150 I think?) with a 9litre resin vessel after it, been running that for at least 18 months and been a solid 000 the whole time.
