    Yep, its really easy to do. Just connect your osmosis to your DI, then to your water container, and pump to your outlet meter. Fit this to your TDS reading, and then add a grommet to your vessel. Install a switch, but remember to bypass the module, and allow space to fit your pole to the variflow, which allows you to adjust the pressure of the...what we call in the trade; 'squirt'. Be sure to use lots of resin in your pump, and keep an eye on your shurflo readings so as not to damage your booster barb connection.

    ...once you have done all of this^, you'll end up with a bag of **** that doesn't work, so best listen to someone else that knows what theyre talking about. Someone should be along shortly.:thumbsup:

    Welcome to the forum @Oneil32. :D

    I'm ok at diy around the house but the technical lingo regarding the system leaves me feeling a little lost to say the least!
    So I would probably prefer to have one installed for me! I guess it will seem all very simple once I'm familiar with it but right now = not lol
    Just wondered if anyone could recommend me a company or any type system for a total combined price!
    Thanks for the replies guys

    Where bouts are you based? There might be someone on here that could install it for you for a good price as i think the companies charge a fortune.

    www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk are the best supplier for Gardiner Poles :rolleyes:
    http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/Crash-Test-Van-Systems-GRIPPAMAX_AUGUST.html

    Alex Gardiner I have a customer for you if you would like to chip in with your advice

    Make water:
    Water tap
    TDS Meter
    RO system - (buy off the shelf from Pure Freedom or whoever)
    DI Vessel filled with Resin - (buy off the shelf from Pure Freedom or whoever)
    Static Water Tank - 1000 Litres
    Transfer Pump - to pump the water into your van
    Hose pipe, clips, etc

    VAN
    Baffled Tank - 500 to 650 Litres
    a couple of big fat straps to hold the tank from moving (at least 3 ton, stronger the better)
    Shurflo pump with strainer
    pump controller
    Leisure Battery 110 amp hour
    Hose Reel with Minibore hose (and an angled hoselock fitting on the inlet side)
    Gardiner Pole and brush.

    You will obviously need fittings, wires, bits and bobs, but this is the basics.
    Either do it your self for next to nothing plus your time OR get a company to do it for very much and all your cash.
    :thumbsup:

    Thanks guys

    I have to purify in the van as I don't have space for a static tank! But as much as I'd love to save some money I don't feel competent to build a system and it would prob be more stress!
    If anyone you know wants a job fitting a system please let me know ;)
