    As a potential newby WFP user just using a backpack, which filter system would be easiest to use? And where should it be purchased?

    Hey.. You need to get a tds meter and test your ppm reading

    if your ppm is under 120 then u need a di if its over u need a ro

    but some people use di only with water upto 240ppm by doubling up on di vessels... its pretty decent if you got no space for a ro setup

    you will need a ro setup if your gonna have a ro ... and to do this space in a shed or garage

    I do a lot of storefronts and some residential so I don't use the WFP more than a day or two a week. I've got 250 TDS and get by just fine with a backpack and twin DI cartridge cart. If i was using a lot of water I'd spend the money on an RO system but I'm not.
