sediment filter

  1. General Reef Discussion
    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.
  2. Skimmers & other filtration
    OK, it is coming up to about 6 months for my sediment and carbon block filter. So in theory the filters should be replaced every 6 months. However, I was running the numbers... I use 5g of RO/DI per week, thus about 22.5g per month. In addition, I use 20g worth of RO/DI per month for NW. Thus...

    My RO/DI unit ranges in TDS from 0 to 5, is 5 to much?

    I've had my RO/DI for 3 years and haven't ever changed any of the cartridges. (bad me!) so my tds is now 2 ppm, and I guess its time for a change. I know it needs a DI because the thing has changed color, and I've never changed either of the sediment filter/ carbon - might want to do that too...

    Hello - I bought a house and it came with a large aquarium. The time has come to change the various filters. It has an airwaterice ro/di filter that I have found replacement filters for, but there is a 3 chamber filter with dvoneb aqua ro markings on it for which I cannot find information. There...

    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...

    Does anyone have any advice where to find a good deal on an RO/DI unit for my house? I am tired of going to the grocery store for water. I want to be able to use it for my in-duct humidifier (misting type), my tap next to my sink, and (duh) my tank. My tank is 125 w/100G stock tank. I'm...

    So, I am getting ready to start my reef tank back up after a year of down time. Got out my r.o. unit and realize I know nothing about it. I have a bag of fresh resin, thought about replacing the membrane, but then I realized how cheap I am. :) Its a membrane rated for 100 gallons per day...

    Let's say I decide to not go fresh water. Say I decide to replace the pressure booster pump for my RO/DI. Help me rethink my tank and redesign my sump with say a budget of $700. Current tank: 75 gallon bare bottom AGA Reef Ready sitting on a standard AGA pine stand. 2 Seio 1500 gph pumps...
