    I'm just moving all my work from trad to WFP. i currently only use a di vessel to purify water. Yesterday my water went from 000PPM to 001PPM. Ive ordered some new resin but that will take a couple of days to arrive but is this purity still ok to use bearing in mind im doing first cleans and im getting the usual spotting issues associated with first cleans even with 000PPM water.

    If ok, what is the maximum PPM you would advise

    spotting is mostly to do with not getting the frames clean enough initially. i clean my windows with my tap water 36ppm & its fine ! i wouldnt risk it on a customers though :tongue: i change resin at about 10ppm ish

    Yeah it is possible. That's what I do. But I now have twin di. Which makes resin last longer.
