Next question for you all (sorry)

I have a 50 GPD Osmosis unit 4 stage, what would be a good membrane to replace too to get enough water to run a pole everyday. I live in an area with an average or 300ppm so I'm guessing a DI Vessel wont cut it and can I simply upgrade the membrane to run quicker or do I need to change anything else?

 

If you need to know it's this unit http://www.osmotics.co.uk/products/4-Stage-50-Gallon-Per-Day-Reverse-Osmosis-System-with-DI.html

 

and i have a low pressure pump attached as my water pressure was 20psi so it's now running at 90psi

 

Cheers :)

Upgrade that membrane to 150GPD with correct restrictor will give you 3 times your current pure water. Then buy 2 upgrade kits which will be 2 housings, 2 x 150 GPD membranes, pipe and fittings. You will then have a 450 GPD which is more than enough for a single operator, even in winter when water processing is slower.

 

If you are using the standard 10" resin filter then replace that with a proper di vessel. Process that into an IBC tank with a submersible pump to transfer the day's water into your van.

 

Check the price of a complete 150GPD r/o on

 

www.daqua.co.uk

 

as it could be quicker and cheaper to replace the whole r/o. He will also supply a di vessel with all the fittings. They only supply the best membranes on the market which are far superior to some others on Ebay.

have a look at http://www.vyair.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=370. this system produces around 120 litres an hour. and more if u get the pressure up higher than 60psi. Or if that too expensive then maybe something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/450gpd-REVERSE-OSMOSIS-SYSTEM-POLE-WINDOW-CLEANING-AQUARIUM-DISCUS-MARINE-RO-/251131624230?pt=UK_Pet_Supplies_Fish&hash=item3a789c7b26. and ul need a di vessel and probably a 6.5l or higher preferably
