    Hi all wondered if anyone can give me some advice? I have been using 2 8x24 di vessels since the beginning of March and refill my 350l tank 2 or 3 times a week on average. Today i checked my ppm from the 1st vessel and it was reading over 100. 2nd vessel and tank are at 000ppm. Is this normal or am i doing something wrong? My ppm from tap is about 220. Grateful for any advice

    Thanks Smurf, according to that i should change every 7 weeks. Thought i might get a bit longer out of it but least i can swap vessels around to get a while longer from my resin. Thanks again mate !!

    as u are using twin di and you can safely clean with up to 10ppm I think you would get approx. 3 times what the gardeners calculator is telling you

    I don't think that was in this country??

    I have seen it too, but it was in new Zealand, where a guy went there for holiday/seeing parents, they wanted windows cleaned, and apparently the ppm of water was around 50ppm!
    He used a normal sweeping brush and the tap water!
    Windows came out sparkling apparently!
