    Got to change the resin for the first time. I trickled the water through at the pace of a long slash for the first lot of resin. How fast can you flow the tap and preserve the resin. My mate says the slower the better.

    If you have a 10 litre and above then normal tap pressure will be okay. Once the ppm creeps up then slow the flow rate to allow more contact time with the resin.

    Anything lower and you have high input ppm you may have to slow the flow rate down to get 000ppm.

    Volume vs flow rate vs input ppm is key

    Hope this helps

    I've seen them Smurf but don't think their value for the money charged. They claim to have a better distribution of water through the di vessel which it probably does have but you can have the same effect by shaking your vessel and slowing the flow rate.

    I've never had the need to use a di tank in a van as use a static system so just transfer pure to the van tank. Simples....
