So confused as a newbie


Recommended Posts

Evening folks... Totally new to wfp however thoroughly enjoy the few customers I have as an add on. 

I have been suffering with blockages recently.. thought it was vision congealing.. I just opened my di vessel and found this.. is this normal.. as this sand type stuff is what's clogging up the filter and pump and pole hose. 

 

Bottom of my water tank is full of the stuff .  Is that vision..or the di stuff..  if it's the di how on earth has it got into the tank system

 

Thanks all

DI resin is tiny beads. If the DI tube ‘filter’ at the end of the pipe (bottom) is worn beads can pass through and end up in your system. Where is the DI vessel plumbed in to your system though? Is it before the tank or on the outlet?

The vessel should have resin in it looks like sand but it should stay in the vessel check the riser to make sure there are no holes in the cages if there is then the resin will go into the tank

The top that screws into the vessel with the filter on the bottom of a long plastic tube 

Hears what it looks like

Just checked...think it looks ok.. there is a loose plastic type washer thing on the top..moves up and down.

That could be your problem if that drops it will slow the resin into the tank

Don't suppose you have a video or pics of what it should look like . So I can compare.

Could be could also be damaged filters in the riser tube

There should be arrows on the DI unit showing water flow in and out. Make sure it's plugged in the correct way round. i.e. the output of your membrane goes in to the IN of DI the OUT of the DI then goes to your tank fill point OR some people have the outlet from tank (bottom) going to pump then to the in on DI then the reel hose connected to the out of the DI unit.

Hope that helps?
