hi guys,

where can i get hold of huge plastic water drums/containers to store RO + mixed water (200l +)?

also, what's the best way to test if an RO machine actually works (i.e. with what can i test the water)?

thanks! :)

hi punk

i used to be in the water business in zimbabwe, to test the purity of the water , you can buy a water purity tester, looks like a pen. H2O might sell them or get hold of a company called aquathin - the agent is in jhb. sorry don't have his number. He will be able to supply a container to hold the water.

p.s the reader should read zero (0) for pure R.O water

There is a plastic moulding place in Strydom Park that makes the 200l drums, i`ll check the name for you as i only know how to get there.
TDS meters test the conductivity and are great little gadgets for determining the purity/need to replace membranes and pre-filters. The waterboy sells them.

Contact The Waterboy for all your RO needs incl testing apparatus. However I don't think he is on this sight anymore. Maybe try googling "The Waterboy"

What you're looking for is a TDS (total dissolved solids) meter. They don't ALL look like pens. 0 TDS would be "first prize" and you should be getting that with a new RO membrane but 0-10 would still be considered "good".

Robin, any luck on the name of the plastic place?
try phoning a few meat processing companies in jhb, they all should 150L casing barrels to give away, a few might charge you R20 bucks or so
