    Ok got my DI vessel today! I currently have a carbon filter that comes after my pump and before my reel and wfp, my question is should I put the DI after the carbon filter and before the reel and wfp or in between the filter and pump? Currently I have it set up after the carbon filter.

    Another question I have is the vessel is an 11ltr so would 10ltr of resin be enough or would I need to pack it right to the top?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Ben:)

  2. The order should be water tank to pump to carbon filter to di vessel to hose. do you have a flow controller? also first time you can afford i'd really advise investing in a second di vessel.

    Ten litres should cover it as the inside of the vessel will take up some space or you could buy 10 litres then a 1 litre bag from ebay if needed

  3. I put the carbon filter before the tank. The only thing after the tank is pump then DI vessel to hose.

    I am pretty sure this is how most do it but I suppose it does not matter.
     
  4. yead i'd do it that way if always filling from home but i top up a lot using cistomers garden taps and its one more thing to carry.

    buy a bag of resin this should do two recharges and fill the vessel to just below the shoulder,pour a glass of water into the resin before you screw the riser back in (makes it easier to slide) I would dump the carbon filter and fit two DI after the pump as soon as possible

    Thanks Everyone, great advice as always

    The carbon filter wont be a problem in the meantime till I can afford a new DI vessel will it?
     
  7. i agree with nearlyclean 2 di's should be your priority, won't hurt to use your carbon meantime.
