    Just wondering could anyone tell me if i wanted to use a trolley with DI only how that would work producing pure straight from my van. I mean would i need to make the pure water first before i put it into the 25 litre barrels?. Just going over my options, wondering whether to start off with a trolley first before going for a van system

    You'd want to be filling the 25L barrels with pure and storing them in the van for when they are needed.

    EDIT: when I started WFP I used a trolley and would fill about 6 barrels in the garden every night. I would set a timer and fill each one, pick it up and walk through the house and plonk it in my boot. What a freekin ball ache that was looking back. A waste of a couple of hours every night!

    That isn't practical for me mate as i live in a flat so i kind of need the pure to be coming from the van. So that rules that one out. It's never ending trying to find a solution. I'm going have about a £800 budget for a diy van mount and after checking on ebay for the price of all the parts that isn't going to be enough. I mean the full job done too. Floor waterproofed and fully fitted

    What's your tap?
    Just coz your di dosent mean it has to go in barrels just connect your hose to a di vessel and straight into tank
    I run twin di vessel setup and I no it would be cheaper to use a ro but I haven't got time for it and hate the waste
    Resin is expensive but if worked into your pricing etc then it's just a business cost and let's not forget 100 percent tax deductable!
    Whereas your water usage if on a meter isn't!
    Lots on here apparently earn hundreds a hour but moan at a couple bags off resin a month at a max of 150
    Go figure but seems little outlay for such a massive profit!!!

    Do you mean a hose from the tap into a di vessel then from that into the barrel mate? I haven't got the set up or ever used a wfp system. I'm just trying to find the cheapest and best option to get me going for the time being

    Hose from tap into di vessel then hose from that into tank in van
    You will be able to fill trolley straight from tank
    Cheapest option is barrels to start coz there free from any car wash so could just fill them and pure into trolley when you need depends really on how much work your doing
