    Hi,
    Getting 32 tds out of ro's which is normal I think, but resin is going within a month. So I'm guessing either resin is **** or di vessel is failing or maybe hoses degrading between vessel and tank? Been using the Unger Virgin resin last few times.
    Cheers, Dom

    My guess is the resin, I tried Unger & found it to be rubbish!

    Thanks for that. Just emptied it again and it came out looking like new. Very weird. Only started buying it cos somebody local started selling it.
    Which one do you find best?

    There's some debate about resin quality at the moment over various brands. Many people have noticed a considerable drop in resin performance over the last two years. However, for now I would recommend this from here-

    32 ppm out of the ro seems high to me. What is the tap water ppm around your way and what ro setup are you using ?

    I'm using two ro's in series. Not tested mains water for a while but it used to be around 300 on the tds. I used to get about 6 months out of my di!
