    Thinking of getting a vw caddy c20 and putting an upright 400 lt tank in it. Got the RO in the garage so only need a pump, controller, battery and reels.
    Anyone got one? is it big enough?

    Also the van I've seen is lined with ply, should I strip it out and paint with
    Protectakote, should I varnish the ply or not bother? I've been told pure water rusts metal quickly so I need to protect the inside of the van, true or false??

    Yes strip the floor ply out and give the floor a ruff up with sandpaper to get rid of the shine, clean it then apply two coats of protectocoat

    What are those measurements for paddy?
    the 400lt tank I'm getting is 1000 tall 1240 wide and 345 deep, your measurements are for a 1000lt tank or am I getting the wrong end of the stick?

    No that was my system so here is measurements of the inside of the back of the van, floor-roof 1100, front-back 1500, side-side is 1200 but behind the seats where I think is the best place for its 1500 side-side because u lose 300 at the back of the van with the two wheel arches, will fit no bother
