    just filled up some 25ltr drums and noticed that the tds has crept up to 002ppm i check every barrel as i go, my question is say you have a 350ltr tank and you fill it up then test it and its high do you empty it all out change the resin and start again?

    It should be OK as long as it's below 10 really and if that did ever happen you'd just empty half and refill with pure diluting the high ppm water

    I never get rid of pureish water myself as all you have to do is run it back through a di tank to get it back down to 000 ppm. That's for me when either transferring water from the static ro/di holding tanks to the van or from the van tanks to the wfp if need be.

    I've heard of one lad dump 1000 litre of purified water out of his van tank just because it was not 000ppm pure which in my mind was a crazy thing to do.

    You can get good quality refurbished 11 litre di tanks from the likes of fleebay dirt cheap for the task as are better than those silly 10" di canisters you get with small ro's

    I have cleaned my own windows with 014 before and it was perfect, as long as mine is under 010 I am happy.
