    Well that's another morning I can't get started. Cold water!

    I think I need to invest in an addition to my cold water system, a separate heater or something. I don't want to go too overboard as this only happens to me a max of 2-3 times a year.

    Can hot water go through the resin vessel okay??

    Any suggestions gratefully received. Brrrrr....

    Stay indoors and keep warm. Or get your trad gear out !! It's not worth working in minus conditions as your gear will still freeze up,unless your using a hot water system.

    Yes, is the short answer.

    If you are filling up from the hot water boiler then I wouldn't use water more that about 40 degrees C. Obviously, your resin longevity will depend on your tap water's TDS.

    Thanks! I hadn't even thought of doing it that way. I have a ICB Tank in garage, so fill van up from there cold. I was thinking of separate heater in van so cold water from tank goes thru a heater system-DI vessel-pole

    I've struggled this week. Take hose and poles in overnight and drain any water from hoses at the end of the day - extension cable with oil radiator on full blast for 20 mins in the morning if it's really bad

    I'm in South Wales.

    It is annoying as I got a bit to do and trying to juggle 2 jobs at the moment. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
