Wow, 37 TDS's out the tap is actually really good. TDS's will not dissipate by holding water. It must be filtered out with an RO/DI unit.
In Florida ( swamp water, mind you) tap usually runs in the 200-300+ range!

As everyone knows manchester england has a very good water.

My mate do you think it would effect me too much if i use tap water without rodi but will hold the water for 48hrs.

Tds will not go away by just holding the water for 48 hrs. Although your water is pretty good, I feel eventually it could cause problems. Mainly because you don't know what those dissolved solids are. It could be something detrimental to an aquarium like phosphates, nitrates, or metals.

As my tank is a 150 Gallon FOWLR. I have 3 dual head 6000LPH wave makers in my tank. Is it too much movement or less as my tank is 30 high???

I think in a FOWLR system, the amount of in- tank circulation would be dictated by what types of fish you have. Some fish, like Tangs, Anthias and Butterflies like higher flow, whereas others prefer it a little more subdued.
I'm not sure of the exact litre to gallon conversions, but that seems like relatively high flow. Approx. 30 times tank volume.
Hope this helps!
