    Just got my DI vessel today, filled it to 3/4 full of resin, tested the water that came out it was 008, why wasn't it zero? What have I done wrong? My TDS reading before is 72

    A few things to check; is the flow of water going in and out the correct way, did you buy new resin, did you buy a TDS meter from a reputable dealer, fill the resin to just below the neck, don't run water through full pelt, check PPM after water has flowed for a few minutes.

    All the things Tuffers said + to make sure the riser tube was inserted fully into the head before reassembly.

    Always fill the vessel with water before re-inserting the riser tube/head assembly as this makes it much easier to insert & line up once the resin is suspended in water- tap water is fine. You could have dislodged the riser tube as you push & pull on it to try & line the head threads up.

    Absolutely brill! Tis a lot faster than my attempt. Took me half an hour. Am I right in thinking you put as much resin in as poss?

    Leave a gap, fill up to the "shoulder" of the vessel- where the outer wall begins to turn in.

    Every 3 to 4 months I wrestle mee 25L tank, cursing it and beating it to a pulp because the feckin water comes out at a stoopid high ppm. I do all the things which have been suggested above and eventually it works.......with me not actually knowing what caused the issue. The only thing that I do know is that once it's down to 0ppm it stays there.

    I came in soaked tonight......literally dripping as the pressure had built up big time etc etc......

    Might sound a bit odd but I quite like these quarterly battles with mee tank......cause I always win :)
