    I somehow managed to fill an empty 1000 ltr ibc with ro waste water instead of pure....
    I think di resin is somewhat dead now too...Doh! :confused::D

    Note to myself RED = Waste Blue = Pure

    Tried setting a system up years back and my water was dreadful and I couldn't figure it out , seems the waste was slowly making its was into the IBC tank straight into the pure , took weeks to figure it out

    You will never guess what happend to me today whilst I was on a job?

    Warning to all us plonkers out there is don't try taking a ladder down from a conservatory roof with a half full bucket still up there. Lets just say it was a bloody good job I had me hard hat on as the bucket came down hitting me on me head.,,WTF ...Oops!:D

    I felt such a plonker and if the customer had not side tracked me I would not have forgotten it was still up there. Lucky for me he went indoors just before it happened so did not see my little mishap :D
