    filled my 11ltr vessel up with new resin i got today :)

    I had my water going in through the out port and the water coming out at the in port -- should be the other way around ! so i swapped them over and my tds reading was high it was on 27 but kept going down.... so it ended up on 23 and my tank was full...

    i filled a 25litre barrel up and it was 00ppm i checked it properly and it was defo 00ppm so i filled another one up straight after and it was 50ppm ! :eek: so i checked the first barrel that was 00ppm and this was 49ppm aswell :S

    so i went t o my van and the reading was 23ppm still

    so i toke water out of the vessell and it came up as 4ppm :S

    then i done it again 2 mins later and it was 60ppm :S

    and now my tds meter has stopped working

    am guessing the water is fine as i seen it was 00ppm first !

    i just think the tds meter is messed up as its stopped working aswell :( :S

    Im surprised the resin didn't go through the hose into your tank as I have done this in the past and it pushes the resin through the filter through the hozelock connector .

    [font="Arial""]I had my first one for a few years now and managed one day to get it wet from a hose. Water got into the insides so after that did not switch on so nothing to lose I just took the cap off then dried it out with low heat from a hairdryer. To my amazement it worked again accurately and still going strong to this day.[/font]

    If you have a real one H why not try replacing the cheap batteries in it then if it works accurately again you will then have a spare. ;)
