    Depends what your water tds is out of your tap and what route you go down


    I'm using a RO system and it cost about £9 per 1000lts of pure water.

    Hi browny firstly you need to know your tds reading of your water supply that's particles per million and also would help to know whereabouts in the uk you are as could be soft or hard water area

    totally different to my area where we have soft water and tds will be a lot lower than yours so di vessel suffices for me so will let others answer your question but rain water harvesting may be an option for you

    ive tested rain water butts coz i was going to steal some one day and 2 tubs came out at 93 and 67 so i gave up. i find if it comes off slated roofs its no good. this is why my shed roof is perspex and the shed is messy lol
