    Hiya -

    i'm in transition from trad to wfp - and i'd like to ask for some advice - i am planning to DIY a small RO system may be + a DI - to produce some pure water to get started with WFP .

    My question is - can i store the water after purification - so it will be pure even after a month or so ? I mean - if i get a new 500 liter plastic container - and i'll fill it with pure water - will it be in 'pure' conditions - ready to use for window cleaning - after a certain time ?

    thanks a lot

    As long as the sun can't get to it ie not a see through container it will store for quite a long time.

    If it is see through or opaque just paint it or keep it covered mate.

    yeah - im gonna keep it in a dark shed

    and to be sure the water is still in 'shape' i can run a TDS test before any cleaning i think ?! just for peace of mind ?

    thanks for your help Dodger

    I do. Only cover with a sheet and not completely at that, cleaned the ibc the other week and there wasa lot of gunk clung to the walls and floor, had been like it for some time but didnt seem to affect anything as far as working was concerned. There's always a few hundred litres in there.

    Use an IBC tank. If you look around you can pick one up for free. Just make use its been washed out.

    If you do go Black IBC, make sure its on 18" Blocks, many are now cutting and fitting an Immersion to help with minus temps, or in the space underneathe a small oild filled rad.

    I suppose because its got baffles built in and doesnt ned a frame ! and possible easier to strap in, when fixing into a van mount ?

    Oh and the water stays useable if kept in the dark, I still have a drum thats 10 years old :rolleyes: bit pongy but still 000

    10 years old ? wow - you should use it in 2013 - and charge twice as much cos' of the 'quality' lol

    May i ask you another question : P - sorry im new to all this .

    The system itself - RO & DI - better said the filters and resin etc - does they come with an expire date - so even if you dont use them , then after a 6 months or so you need to replace them ? or is all about how much water you run through the system ?
