    I've got a 250 GPD ro/di unit which came with a kind of niddle valve to connect the system to the main hose .

    I think I should replace that valve with a proper / traditional one , It might be the reason why the pure water flow is soooo slow ? it takes 2-4 min to fill a glass of water ! how do I improve that - any ideas ? I didn't expect that flow as the pressure is fantastic .
    ...unbelievable

    Hi, i have created this thread for you as you will get more answers in here.

    Have you flushed the system at all?

    With a system like that, it will probs need to be run continually into a holding tank before transfer to a van mount.

    probably looking at 40 litres per hour with that system. (if i`ve worked it out right)

    that needle valve wont make any diffrence as these are use on things like washing machines and other household itmes.

    a booster pump will help speed things up abit,

    plus the cold weather slows things down a bit too,

    250 X 5 = 1250 / 24 = 52 lph at its maximum production... that`s the best you can expect.

    It takes me about 2 hours to make 25 litres, an ibc is a must unless you get booster and still expect to work all day
