    At 480ppm I think I've got it very bad here in Essex!

    What RO are you using? We use a 4040, I think a 100 inch RO is needed!

    I don't window clean fulltime so I just have a basic 100gpd unit with a larger resin vessel.

    I love Wales, spent weeks/months cruising about on the motorbike, love Tintern awesome vineyard there does the most amazing mead (or did, dunno now?)

    But it does seem to rain, a lot, which coming from someone from England is saying a lot :p

    After one trip the wife and me to this day have a saying, "a welsh mile" after spotting a sign once that said this old mine you could go round which I forget the name of was 1 1/2 miles down this little lane, about 8 miles later we got to it.
