    If your TDS is higher than 100 then get an RO This a good value one

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/450gpd-RE...230?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3a789c7b26

    Get a Di resin vessel. This one is a good price

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/11ltr-EMP...304?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item234d38dfd0

    For resin, get Tulsion MB 115. Here is the best one (top)

    http://www.daqua.co.uk/resins.htm

    For a Trolley if you don't want to DIY Get a Pure Freedom one which is good quality.

    http://www.purefreedom.co.uk/water-...re-freedom-25-litre-trolley-with-charger.html

    For an extension to your pole, get 30m of Gardiners all season pole hose. (this is not the hose used for a van mount but is fine fore a trolley)

    http://gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/all-products/pump-hose/hoses/all-season-pole-hose-8mm-od-30m.html

    and connectors for the pure freedom trolley and to your pole.

    http://gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/al...-trade-female-end-stop-coupling-6mm-barb.html

    Get a SLX 22 pole with quick loc angle adapter, Super lite medium mixed dual trim brush, Pencil jets, rubber pvc yellow hose with flow valve and EZ snap tail.
    http://gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/al...les/slx-ii-carbon-fibre-pole/pole-slx-22.html

    Don't bother with a reel to start with. just wrap the hose around the Trolley. :)

    How long roughly will the 25ltr resin last me in hard water area 288? and how many bags would you recommend getting from the off when setting up?

    cheers

    Paul, with that RO that I gave you a link to, it will pull the water readings down to the mid 20's, so, a 25 ltr bag of resin will last you a long time. If say, you use 500 litres of water a week to start with, it will last you a year or more.
    DONT use just a DI when the TDS is in the hundreds cuz, as Tench says, it wont last long and is expensive :thumbsup:

    That's quite interesting Stephen, using your calc, I can go a year on 1 25ltr sac. I think I might keep a log next time I do a filter change and see how long my filters and DI last.
