    I have my ibc collecting rain and it runs through the di using gravity but it takes ages to fill the drums.
    can anyone give me a link to a reasonable pump to pump the water through the di to speed things up a bit?

    thanks

    That's why it is also best to use an inline filter and a half inch hose on the transfer system if going through a di tank. If the flow is still too strong you could add a gate type valve to vary the flow you want.

    stevie I haven't decided on one. im not sure what type of filter im looking for but I guess it must fit a garden hose.
    I don't know what type of pump to suit the pressure so I don't destroy the resin.
    you any ideas yourself that could be of help or some links?
