    Hi guys, was wondering if anyone could give me advice on what wfp pole system to start off with for beginners, i already have an established round with which i use traditional methods, but no longer have two workers that i had, so thinking about the pole system for part of the run which is too hard to do on my own with trational methods, mostly dangerous and too time consuming

    I started out with a CLX-22, a backpack from WCW, one DI vessel and some 25ltr containers. Once I had established the method I got a van and put in a DIY system. My water tds is only 60 so I had no need of an RO.

    To be honest i had been thinking of that or a trolley system, one or the other, i thought that would be wiser, rather than going straight for a van mounted system, until i learned what i was doing. But if i do go down that route i am going to go on a course for a couple of days any way to learn how to use it properly

    cant go wrong on the cheapest one that I use...

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Start-a-w..._B_I_Business_for_Sale_CV&hash=item1e80563914

    and comes with plenty of explanation and the guy will advise..

    tds total dissolved solids is the amount of stuff in your water that you dont want....you want pure 000ppm water.

    ro which comes with that kit...is a way of filtering out all the tds along with pre filters which gets you your pure...I am by no means an expert...but just happened on your post first ...I knew nothing about the wfp until about nine months ago ...dont let the words scare you as you will soon get the idea...welcome to the forum.:D

    It's hard for a new comer to break into the jargon and get our heads around the required stuff and the science and practicalities, let alone learning technique.

    At least with trad the mechanics seem understandable, if hard to master.

    I'm building almost a clone of spcleanings beginner system, but it would be useful to know the di/ro cut off for making sense to do di only, e.g. Is it above 70 tds It makes sense to use more filtration?

    I still don't understand much about resin and the di process

    I think DI only is a suitable method up to 100 tds at source. Mine is 60 atm but it has been as high as 102 and so low as 45. I will continue using DI only.

    Ok I read that, it seems to imply you can just use a di regardless, it will just use it up fast
