RO/DI unit recommendations?
Permalink  
 


Aloha Guys wondering who has a recommendation for a low foot print truck mount or portable RO/DI unit. We have been strictly DI and are looking to upgrade as our solar panel cleaning services are taking off. Also is it better to pull from a tank with a float.

The RHG line of products can't be beat. I love my H2Pro and the EZ Fill model that Eric and Lisa use is awesome too! In my opinion anything else is just trying to catch up to RHG.

Sorry for the late response gang. Thanks for the help! I was leaning towards a portable as I have no more room in the van for a tank. Curious Eric, does that unit require a tank.

I understand the reason for using RO/DI water for window washing....but is there a benefit for using RO/DI water in your house washing or roof washing solutions?

Jeff what I've found in general is that the less minerals in the water the less soap and cleaners that are needed.

I have theH2pro from RHG. I like it for its intended purpose. I have to say that we have been liking using straight commercial DI tanks. I get two large tanks at a time. I probably get 6,000 gallons plus from each tank ( just guessing). It's nice to just plug you WFP in and go. I get the tanks from GE water. $66 to exchange and $6 a month rental for each tank. We do big commercial exteriors now and then and they can be pretty convenient for a number of applications.

Realistically only California (because DI is cheap there) or areas of low TDS (100 or less) are cost effective uses of DI tanks. Otherwise you are money ahead to have a RO/DI unit.

I'm glad to hear that makes sense for California Tony. Another plus is that we don't have the run off from the RO filter. ANY waste of water here is a big deal.

I hear that Eric. One way to combat the RO bypass water is to direct it to your pressure washing water tank. You can then use it and not waste it.

 When the tds is typically into the 100's and higher, you will eventually save money by investing in such a system. Reverse osmosis cleans a vast majority of the impurities in the water and deionization finishes the process. DI resin will need to be replaced or in certain types can be regenerated when it becomes 'spent'. RO extends the life of DI. DI is not particularly cheap most places.

I understand that in some areas, such as parts of the southeast the tds is well under 100. My area is usually around 100, give or take. I do pretty well with just a DI tank and sediment prefilter. 

I recently purchased an Unger Hydropower that holds 2 DI resin bags, easily serviceable and portable. So far, so good.

The average TDS in my service area is 278. With the drought its 300+. I use large DI cylinders from A commercial water filtration company. Im small potatoes to them. It can be a hassle but in the end it works for me.
