    yes and no

    wen u fill ur we tank wityh pure it mixs with the remains of the normal causing the ppm to rise
    this even happens if tank is empty as there bes some water left on sides of tank

    then in ur pole hose it takes certain amount of pure to rinse the normal out
    using ppm tester uel find it goes down fast

    if u use 25l drums mark one off with marker and only use that for normal water

    or buy this

    Adapter to use EZ Snap™ Pole on a Garden Tap - EZ Snap Couplings - Professional Hose Couplings - Hose Fittings & Adapters - Pump & Hose - All Products Gardiner Pole Systems

    u can hook ur pole hose straight onto it and use customers tap

    Yeh that's what I use as long as customer has an outside tap.

    When u switch back to pure water just make sure you let it flow for a while to clear out any tap water in your pole hoze.

    When I use my backpack I often switch between tap water for fascias, gutters, etc and pure water for windows and I've never had any problems.

    i always use tap water for fsg & conservatories then swap straight to pure its never occured to me to let it run through the hose for a while, i cant believe it could make any difference.

    Try running UBIK thru your main pump reel hose
    Takes about 3 days to rinse out !!
