    at that high ppm then the better way would be RO, just DI would work out expensive.

    If you got £200 to spare then it's worth getting a 1000L ibc tank off eBay & another 25L DI vessel (will pay itself off in couple months with saved resin costs) then put the 11L one in your van(?) as a polisher for when you use the rainwater.

    if it is costing you £40 a week it sounds to me like it is worth renting a garage and getting a ro set going
