Sorry I can't help with the ibc tank.  Why does it take so long filling double di? I fill about 500 litres in about 20 minutes using double di.  I know people say its better to run it through the di slow but its never found that.

i literally run the water as slowly as possible, to be honest i read that it would make the resin last longer.

I turn the tap on full, lucky enough my waters really low at between 30 and 50. I only use under 3 bags of resin a year ( probably nearer 2) dont know how much it would save running it through a lot slower.  Why not next time you change your resin mark the date down and run It through quick and see how long the resin lasts .

You would be better off with a 450gpd R/O as you would get a faster fill, as for IBC's have search on Fb market palce there might be someone fairly local to you selling them cheap @THL4KEL got one cheap from Boro

@doug atkinson from Daqua. He will be more expensive than say Collins Water, but you will get quality membranes not cheap Chinese copies.
