Provides a final deionization filter step using mixed-bed resins. Using resin as a water filtration media provides similar results to using a reverse osmosis membrane.
- Removes hardness, heavy metals, toxins, and other tap water impurities
- Removes nutrient source for algae & virtually all microorganisms
- For freshwater, marine, and reef applications
- Includes TFC R/O membrane, micron pre-filter cartridge & a carbon block pre-filter cartridge
Using resin as a water filtration media provides similar results to using a reverse osmosis membrane. Rather than filtering out pollutants as water passes through a membrane, resins work by attracting either positively (+) or negatively (-) charged particles found in water. The Coralife deionization (DI) canister provides a final DI filter step using mixed-bed resins. One drawback is that resin does exhaust and will need to be replaced or regenerated more frequently to maintain high quality water production.
