    hi I've recently been having a bad reaction to the resin when the water drips down onto my head and neck I'm getting really sore as it can cause dermatitis.
    Does anyone not use the resin in the water or is there another product I can use instead.
    Any help or ideas appreciated.

    Hi resin in the water? The water your using is pure but shouldn't have resin in it.the resin should remain in the di vessel if set up right
    I do some people suffer dermatitis but surely pure carnt be as harsh as soap etc

    Hi mate the resin is in the vessel the water passes through the resin vessel then out I think that's right? Then collects a little resin to go on Windows to give it gloss.
    The mixed bed resin is very strong chemical.
    I was wanting to know if everyone uses the resin or if there was something else to buy to replace it.

    I'm not sure mate that resin should pass out through the vessel Just pure water
    I no my water certainly has no resin in it
    Polishing water as its called its just a term for the di polishing the impurities out the water not actually for polishing the glass
