    i got told as long as your water PPM stays below 10 then your alright, what is the PPM of the water which comes out of your tap ?, what did you learn on your first day of WFP as apposed to trad ?

    also how many litres did you use today ?

    I don't know how long it will last but what is your ppm from tap might be worth getting a RO system.

    Here is a link to a resin usage calculator. Its won't be totally accurate but will give you an idea.

    Resin Calculator

    A double di simply works this way.

    I agree. I wouldn't go above 2.

    I know there are some cleaners that clean with a high tds but I'm sure that they don't realise the results. In sunlight I can see spots at 8 ppm on our windows, so would never clean with that. Maybe the water composition and dissolved solids in our area has a bearing on this. One poster says he often works with a tds of 38 without no customer complaints.

    We have a guy in our area that went to wfp a good 4 years ago. I'm positive he uses ordinary tap water. Ours is between 99 and 130.
    His windows look dreadful but he keeps cleaning them and they keep paying him. Some of his customers have dumped him (I've got them) but he has a second vehicle on the road now so he must be growing.
