    Do sediment pre-filters and carbon block filters go bad (on an RO/DI machine)? I plan on buying in bulk, and I want to know if this is feasible (considering that some filters may go unused for years)? Thanks.

    I have heard a recommendation to use a BRS Reactor with GFO & Carbon. Wouldn't the use of carbon filtration remove the trace elements gained with water changes? Why use carbon? Thanks

    Ok, so I only needed to fill two DI cartridges, I ordered 5 lbs of media:confused: Do I just double bag the stuff and save it? It will take a couple of years to use up this amount. It is moist in the bag so I am worried about mold or drying out. How long can I store it or are the folks at our...

    Since i may be upgrading fo a 24 to a 75 i'am without a doubt not going to be buying water from the local grocery store.

    Last year I began using loose catalytic carbon, in place of the carbon block type media, in my RO/DI unit. It worked ok and it did extend the life of my DI cartridge by approximately 50%. However, recently the loose carbon containers have clogged up my RO/DI unit. Although there are many...

    Figured I'd ask the group. It's time to change my filters and I'm wondering if I should put the same that were in there. Currently there is one 5 micron prefilter followed by 2 carbon block filters which I guess are 1 micron. What does everyone else use? The reason I know it's time is my...

    I have to share a big learning experience I had this weekend. Found out my RO/DI unit wasn't working, that is, it was putting massive amounts of phosphates and Gosh-knows in the RO water. I checked the output RO water and it was loaded with phosphates and the pH was way alkaline! I was...
