    First time I had to use bricks HAHA to be honest the extra couple centimeters only gave me enough water to finish the last window on the house :)
    Anyone else parks on curbs when running low on water? o_O:laugh:

    Yep! Always pitch it on a curb if I'm running low!

    I've not yet had to do that myself but still a smart way to get the most out of the tank. :thumbsup:

    I'm also aware that some if they know they are running low of pure will just wfp tops and trad bottoms instead if they have to. That is if they can't produce pure on demand or top up the tank on site to finish off a day’s work.

    Some also with smaller tanks if working local pop back to base during the day to refill the tank if they have a static system at home with large holding tanks.

    I operate in a hard water are so have no real choice but to use a ro/di system which takes much longer in general to produce pure. However for the lucky ones with really soft water they can top up the tank from anywhere with an outside tap when using di only.

    There is a lot to be said for also having the capability as already mentioned to be able to produce pure water on demand in a hard water area from either a ro/di trolley purposely built for the task or using a 4040 ro/di van mount instead just by hooking them up to an outside tap especially if needing more pure water than the tank can physically hold.

    Thanks Smurf - that was quite a spruce comment :)
    Yes there are some ways to save water, like scrub top half of patio doors, rinse top half, then scrub bottom half with water shut off, then rinse bottom half ;) same with windows.

    Or just trad them instead as would be quicker and save more water :D
