    Yep. A friend told me that trick. He told me to empty the resin though that is used up, looks more like a slush puppy consistency n darker n leave the golden resin that's not been used up.

    I always used to do this.

    Fill half way then add couple of litres when ppm rose.

    Found I got more litres doing this however end of riser tube must be flush with top of di vessel otherwise if short will not work.
