    Hi all,
    any body have trouble with ionic resin?
    had my new R O unit set up in the garage since February and was told the resin will be used quicker then normal due to the new R O unit and water filters, its now June and still seem to be going through it quick just wonder if any one had same problem or is it just me lol
    currently use around two tanks of water a week (600ltr tank)

    It's a lower spec resin at 4000 litres / 100 ppm so will not last as long as higher grade resins at 6000 litres. Hence why Unger is a cheaper resin. I do know for a fact Unger and ionic can not hold high ppm. Unger seems to have gone a lot cheaper so grade will have dropped as well.
