Could be they have changed the water source given the drought they are dealing with.

Hot weather on its own will not change the dissolved solids in water.

1ppm is nothing and could be due to margin of error of the measuring device or it could be that the cup used was not totally clean.

Hi all,
First time post here.

Can anyone comment on the full vessels listed by IWE on Amazon? 23L vessel full with resin for £145
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...oop_bw_c_x_1_w

It doesn't state what resin is supplied. I can see there other listings for resin
https://www.amazon.co.uk/IWE-VIRGIN-...4038616031_1_1
but still doesn't state if it's 115 or what?

Any thoughts?

If it doesn't state that they use Tulsion MB115 resin then it won't be.....what they will be selling is a resin of a lesser quality than Tulsion MB115.

Well. I used my DI Vessel for the first time today. No hassle at at all just getting it out for the final rinse. I dried anyway, but not having to rush was a godsend. I left my car for a good while while I tidied away and got on with a few other bits and bobs. I admit I was a bit worried as this point of detailing a car is the critical time for me - and it was warm today and the water dried quickly. But no, everything was great. The odd drips from the wing mirrors still left a small water stain, but I can live with that. I checked the water from the vessel and it was reading 000 before and after the rinse.

I can't recommend these things enough, whether you want to just leave the car to dry naturally or go over it with a towel anyway. It just felt different rinsing with DI water, it's hard to explain fully, but a great thing to have. One of the best things I've bought, just wished I'd got one earlier.

instead of toweling next time walk away and lock yourself in the house!

it does dry with no water marks! thats the hardest thing i found, not wanting to go over it - just to make sure

Hi, first time post so be gentle . I purchased the above vessel from IWE and its brill, fast delivery too, my water hardness went from 367ppm down to 0. I`ve used it about 8 times now on my Black Jag XE but only for final rinse and it works a treat, can highly recommend
