    Chesh, its 1000ltr ibc which i got off ebay for £25 which had only stored water in, the seller said he has them all the time, i cant recommend him enough...........£25!!!!!!
    The filters are just a sediment/pre filter then a carbon filter then a stainless 4040, the ply board they are all attached to just hooks onto the cage of the ibc so i can bring it in the house on cold nights.
    In that picture i haven't put the submersible pump in yet, its the green motor on top of the ibc, in hindsight i should of measured the opening on top because i had to open the hole up to fit the pump through!
    It takes about 24 hours to fill it

    Tuffers.......well spotted lol its a bit busy in there but everything has a place

    cheers kier!
    can i ask where you got the filters and ro from and what sort of tds does it take the water down to?
    ive got a 600 ibc and will be starting off with just di in the van but will be building something like this long term to extend the life of the resin!

    Got the filters from a shop near me, they take the tds from 046 down to 000
