    Ok so looking at these which would be best for a soft water area ?

    iv been looking at the 450 ro system and the 11l di system

    i know with the ro system is just a case of changing the filters how many litres would 1 450 ro system clean before id need to change the filters ?

    same with the 11l di resin how many litres roughly would this give me from both before id need to change the resin/filters ?

    any help or examples would be great

    its a bit more than just changing your filters

    what is ur tds of the water

    with a ro you get waste water adn if on a water meter can cost a lot of money

    Not 100% on the tds of my water all i know is i'm in a soft area

    not on a meter so that not a problem.

    just looking for a few examples really

    i prefer the sound of a di system but would like to know what sort of litres a full 11l gets thro before the resin needs to be changed which is around £60-70 i thik

    i'm going for a 350l tank anyway so would like to know how many tanks is possible on a full 11l resin bottle before the tds starts to rise agine.

    it depends on your tds at tap mate mine is about 35 i believe wales is good an all, i've got 2 11ltr di's into a 350 tank, i use mebbe 250 ltr a day average - i could use less but i over do it a bit, but a bag of resin lasts about 4mths
    start with 1 di then when water goes above 12 i put that next to tap & a new 1 next to tank & keep checking tds on old di till its same as tap tds then go back to using 1 di untill that hits 12
    but if you water is more than 100 i think you need ro as well

    My tds is around 30-40 and I use an 11ltr di, I will probably get another to go alongside it soon though.

    It takes about 45 mins to fill my tank (250ltr) straight of the mains, I don't use a booster, don't think you need one with Di only. Mine goes from tank through Di to pole.
    Where about are you, you are welcome to have a look at my system.
