    First of all, do you know your tap TDS reading? That will determine whether you need just a DI vessel to make your pure or an RO.

    Do you have a van and how much payload has it got? Get the biggest tank your vehicle will allow including all your other tools.

    If you can afford a full carbon pole, buy one instead of the cheapo ones they sell in your link.

    After you've answered these questions, we can then go forward a little bit more with your other questions.

    Hi Tuffers,

    I have tested my water today and it's some ware between 80 / 100 not one 100% sure as it's not a digital tester I am waiting for one to be delivered.
    I am looking to get a small van properly a fiat so was thinking about a 350lt tank. :)

    A 350L should be ok for one man. Do you have room like a garage with a tap in it? Are you on a water meter?

    Have you thought how you will get water to your van? Do you have a private drive or do you park on the road?

    I live in a town house with allocated parking. I can run the hose pipe to the van no problem put I wouldn't be able to leave it out long enough to fill it via a RO that's the reason for going down the DI only route just hopping the running costs are not to high :)

    andy have you done any ladder work mate
    it would be so much easier to do ladders first then go down the WFP road later
    cheaper and less hassle

    What I'd do is fill your tank with tap water and run it through the DI in the van. Get a second DI to save your resin after the TDS starts to creep up on the first one. Filling the tank with tap water would mean that you could fill it quicker and gives you less chance of someone tripping over the hose going into the van.
