    Hi guys,

    I've just bought a water fed pole system on a trolley in a soft water area and it seems that my water is still drying with some spotting and so I was looking to add a di vessel to my setup to enable me to stay mobile yet also give me cleaner water.

    My question is....if I were to connect a di vessel via its hose fitting to my trolley, would my 80psi pump (comes as standard with the trolley) be sufficient to pump water through the di vessel and up and out the pole at a rate which will clean properly? Or is it more like an RO system that needs time to shift the water.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    It's an impressor 25l trolley system (from eBay, not the best but it's what worked within budget)

    The trolley bottles are filled from a tap on-site at the cleaning jobs.

    Yep exactly, bayersan UK and yes barrels.

    I fill them via a tap inside the building. Sadly there's no outdoor tap that I could connect directly to. And the indoor tap won't hold an adaptor to allow me to fill the barrels with pure water.

    So my seemingly last option is to add a di vessel in the hope that the output flow is strong enough to work, d'ya get me?

    Thanks

    Hi Mate you need to buy a TDS meter and measure the TDS from the water tap you are using.

    I've actually got one from having done hydroponics so yeh I'll get to measuring but can anyone say whether or not water flows out of di vessel sufficiently enough?

    It might sound like a daft question but having never used or seen one in action, I figured I best check before I throw some more money at it.
     
  9. Yes mate. Gravity is enough to push through a Di vessel. A pump will be more than enough. The slower the water goes through, the better.
    I've an old ec truncheon from hydroponic days. Is that what you're job a use, cos it ain't quite the same.
