    I was just wondering If your using a Water Fed Pole what is your PPM (Parts Per Million) readings!

    I'm currently running at 0 ppm and hopefully it will stay there until I have to start changing the resin / filters.

    Get your TDS Metres out and let me know!

    James.

    3 or 400 from the tap, but get it to 0. need new membranes mind as only get about 6-700ltr at 0 and about 300 up to 10, only ro to about 30 at mo, but the're nearly 3 yr old and no booster so to spend 70 quid every 2-3 yrs is'nt bad

    I change my resin when it's gets above 5/6ppm really. Sometimes creeps a little higher.

    I knew it Gav! It seems most of us start changing the resin / filters when it gets between 3 & 6 ppm.

    I was told by another window cleaner when i started, that up to 10 is fine for cleaning windows, so thats when i change, never had any complaints. Just changed the resin yesterday, so big fat zero there!. Where i am in n.e. scotland its about 180 out the tap, but i fill my tank at my parents, their tap water is 60 :)
