Plenty of these style ones on Amazon http://amzn.to/2rpj64D

The reviews seem good but it's hard to tell if they are genuine or bought!

I bought that one a few weeks ago as I was thinking of getting a Di vessel and wanted to see what my tap water is currently. My tap water is about 40ppm according to it. Don't know if I trust it. Do I even need a Di vessel if I'm at 40? That seems pretty low.

I went with a Raceglaze DI vessel. Yes, there's cheaper out there but it suits my needs. Still like to hand dry after the final rinse but I no longer have to rush to do so

Thinking to go the D.I route. Can I ask if size matters?

If packs of Resin are available in 25 Litres, would it not make sense to have a 25L vessel?

I have a large 4x4 (dark green) and a white saloon and generally wash one car a week but I plan to use it for our front window washing as they are nearly always in full sunshine.

Oh and another thing.... can I just do the final rinse in hot sunshine and leave the car to dry?
Thanks,
Geoff

The resin does keep if kept dry and sealed, so you don't need to use it all at once.

25 l vessel is fine if you plan to keep it in one place (it will be heavy)

And yes, beauty of DI is rinse and leave. No dissolved solids in the water, so no water spots.
