    Hi all

    What fitting should I use to connect to the di vessel. I Bought some cheap ones from bnq but they are leaking when under pressure.

    Should I use Hozelock ?

    You bought B&Q hozelock fittings? I use them and find them ok. The leak out of your vessel could be from the male Hozelock that screws in the thread on the DI?

    undo the male thread on the di & put some ptfe tape around the thread & tighten it with an adjustable wrench.also have you got the hose the right way around.water in- water out?.is the resin compacted too much,the water needs to circulate?which will cause pressure.if not all these, its the connectors
