    I have a ibc tank out my back garden. the only place for it to be situated is 30ft away from the outside tap.
    it is a bit far for water to travel, im sure will slow the flow up.
    im looking to produce 350ltrs a day, anyone any ideas of what ro system to buy? from cheap ro to the most expensive?

    cheers fellow scrubbers

    peace

    Hi john,
    Hope your well.There are plenty to choose from on the market.Always keep things simple though and try not to complicate things.
    There are so many on the market,what's your budget mate?

    This is what I have. Its a 450 GPD RO. A good budget Ro Before you start getting to the bigger stuff, bigger money. I get 36 litres an hour if that is good enough for you. £169 delivered. You will need standard hose and fittings which will attach to the fittings on this system.I cant see that you will have any flow problems, but you will need to get your water from the ibc to your van.

    Hi Jimmyboots. I know u recommended this to me a while ago.

    Do you know what ur water pressure is, to produce 36 litres an hour, also are u in hard or soft area? I guess these will have an influence on how much u can produce.

    I bought a pressure guage for £10 and my pressure is min 70psi to max 100psi from tap, although average is about 80-85 psi. I'm guessing I won't need a pump with those kind of pressures. So if you're pressure is lower than mine, In theory I may get more than 36 litres an hour.

    I Don't think my pressure is as high as yours. I am in a hard water area. My TDS is 250
