    Hi everyone my name is Luke. As you can see I'm new to WFP system as I am currently using traditional methods. I've been a bit skeptical about switching to WFP as I heard off people having bad cleans? I'm looking to start using WFP system and start off with a basic trolley set up so that I can get used to it and go from there. I was wondering if anyone can recommend what to get and also what size di vessel. I've been helping a friend for a while with his traditional round as well and so I would like to build my round up and incorporate this system . Any help would be great fully received about equipment and also how to set up?

    Do you know the TDS of your tap water? that is the first thing, your gear will change depending on it.

    TD can vary wildly from area to area, and if it is high you would probably need an RO as well as a DI vessel with resin.

    Ok it's best if I get a meter then and do the test. What else do I need to consider when starting off with this method. I have watched youtube methods on various techniques and also I was going to practice on my own house and family before I go off to do customers. What reviews do you get about the WFP method?
