My first van set up. Thoughts??

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I’ve attached a photo of my van setup. It’s my first van mounted system. Im purifying the water in the van. I’d appreciate any feedback or thoughts from you all, as you are more experienced than me. It consists of

250 litre tank, Merlin RO (behind tank), 11 litre DI, Booster pump, shurflo pump/controller, external fill/drain connectors.

Looks like you have done a good job there, only negative is strapped in tank but I have done it in the past, have you informed your insurance company of the tank? and mods

Wouldn't it be better to have the pump controller by the real where you can reach it easily?

Looks good, nice and neat.

How are you going to protect the system and hoses from freezing in the winter?

I have a 250 litre tank, takes 1hr 45 mins to fill with booster pump. I’m hoping i won’t have to deal too much with frost. We will see 🤦🏼‍♂️

Transit Connect set up with fill/drain pipes connected, and booster pump extension cable fitting snugly in a closed door 😁👍🏻

you will need to protect your RO system from frost, as if the membranes freeze they are damaged and stop working effectively. a small oil filled radiator or a greenhouse type tube heater plugged in overnight will usually work fine.

You can also wrap your R0 with plastic foil barrier insulation commonly used on loft header tanks and new build loft insulation. Wrap it up with at least 6 passes and she'll be as snug as a bug. You may need to adapt its mounting brackets through
