    I don't normally stray into this side of the site but I need a cheap bit of pure water equipment to clean the odd window, but mainly for glass conny roof's. Seen this kit by Unger (HydroPower Di12 or Di24) below, is it any good? Or is there something better at under £500. Looks great as it connects straight to the outside tap so no need for a water tank in the van which would suit conny cleaning. Any positive thoughts would be welcome.:rolleyes:

    It may be a clique but you get what you pay for! This pole doesn't look very good quality and the brush will be quite heavy unlike the lightweight gardiner brushes for example.

    If you are just looking to do a small amount of wfp cleaning then maybe this will be OK for you but I would do some more homework first and think about the long term as you may decide to do more wfp cleaning in the future.

    If that is the case then you may find that something like Jimmyboots van DIY mount below would be a better choice.

    I'm around 50 ppm according to my local water supplier so hopefully Di is the right choice. :thumbsup: or :thumbsdown:?

    Sounds like di only should be fine then you lucky devil :D
    Before ordering any di kit best get yourself a real HM Digital TDS-3 Handheld Meter With Carrying Case http://www.daqua.co.uk/testmeters.htm and check the tap water reading yourself. You will need one anyway as is an invaluable tool to have one separate to any built in one you may get with that hydro power thing

    There are plenty of different ro/di on-demand type systems about.
    To be honest I would not like to try carting any of them about as would be a pain in the **** especialy up/down steps in/out of a van etc. Also some due to the design and weight you would need 2 ppl lift it about.
