    just a question really on using a di vessel for purifying water. my tds is 64 so i have ordered a vessel and some MB-115 resin to use for my wfp. is it as simple as connecting my outside hose to the vessel and then another hose from vessel to tank and turn the water on?????

    in my experience so far in life nothing is ever as simple as it seems!!!!

    any answers welcome thanks.

    yes as simple as that, although people who only use DI have two inline, one brings it down a bit then the last makes the water 000 tds

    I`m RO so only use a single DI vessel.

    As simple as that, make sure you connect it correctly... Tap - in... Then out - water tank ( it will say in and out on the top of the di vessel..

    My ppm is 042 or there abouts and use a single 11lt di..

    I think people with do only fill the tank in van with tap water then purify on demand by pulling the water through the resin whilst working, because the flow is slower the resin lasts longer.

    was thinking of that way also but unsure if the pump would be able to push through di vessel and 100m hose.

    I think the resin goes before the pump, but not 100% sure

    I would always pump onto the van it's easier and less hassle (through the Di)
    To be more cost effective do the twin DI's inline trick.
