    I have recently read that a TDS of anything less than 10 is fine for Windows, however we have always stuck to zero, what do you members clean on (TDS Reading)

    Thanks for your replies, I suppose the answer seems to point to staying at 0ppm but it wouldn't kill anyone if it was slightly higher!

    I'm confident up to 20ppm. I have worked with 76ppm by accident & although I could see some marks under the inspection of a trained eye the results were still acceptable believe it or not!! I do not recommend this though:D. I've worked with 36 & achieved spotless results.
    I normally work with anything up to 10 but wouldn't bat an eye up to 20.

    Wow Winproclean, that seems high! Whatever works I suppose.

    I personally change my resin when it hits 4ppm. Most of the time the water I take out is 0. I would have thought consistantly using High tds water would leave mineral marks on the windows? One of my customers has these from years of rain water dripping from the walls as the windows arent set back, theyre kind of level with the wall.
