    Just a few questions on how to get pure water on site. My van can only hold a 250 litre tank so if i ran out of water would i be able to just fill up the tank with a normal hose or what is the procedure? Been meaning to get the system for a while but i've just got a few unanswered questions

    The barrels full of water would be extra weight so that wouldn't really be practical i would be better getting a bigger tank but the max payload is 595kg so a 250 litre tank is recommended. Sorry i originally thought you meant use a backpack i didn't read it properly lol

    I only need a di system mate as i live in a soft water area. I've figured out i will set up a di system in my van but is it as easy as just running a hose from a tap to the tank to fill it up then i can continue working once it has filled up again?

    You might have to carry a couple of di vessel s in your van , make a note of places you could fill up around your round . Get permission from the owners , park up and fill up ,


    (I'm think you could get away with a bigger tank though )
