Also it seems ot use  alot of water for one window. Has anyone got any insight suggestions etc. Im not sure whether i will send it back or not

Photos of your purification system would help

I would ask for instructions. it would be good to put a photo of the system up.

If you live in an extremely hard water area you'll be killing that resin in seconds and will most likely not even achieve pure water at 0.00ppm 

Was the TDS metre an H&M branded one? Otherwise bin it. Only the best are calibrated correctly.

 

On the DI vessel you'll have an in arrow and an out arrow 

 

Standard tap water in & pure water out.

You should either have 2x hoselock style garden hose fittings on it or john guest fittings and microbore hoses with adapters fitted

When you don't deal with the right people because of your naivety you end up paying twice. 

I'm afraid @Soaps and Shines has had his first taste of this. If you don't know, just search on here and ask.

A windie many years ago put the tds of his water in Hartlepool up on one of the forums. It was 550ppm.

No wonder the coffee in Hartepool tasted so terrible and always had a scum on the top of it.

At least @Soaps and Shines will be able to save something out of this by buying an r/o  (300 - 450gpd) from a recognised wfp supplier like Daqua, a couple of water butts and a descent pole from Gardiners. He is going to have to process water at home. It looks like this supplier was intending him to fill his backpack from customer's taps.
