100 gpd 4-stage reverse osmosis/deionization unit for aquarium use
Compact water purification unit removes more tap water pollutants
Distinct twist-in cartridge design makes filter changes simple & easy
Space-saving 100-gpd 4-stage reverse osmosis (RO) and deionization (DI) unit takes a clever design twist to ease filter installation and maintenance. AquaticLife Twist-In 4 Stage Compact Reverse Osmosis/Deionization System, distinct from conventional RO/DI units that employ bulky difficult-to-maneuver canisters, utilize twist-in filter media cartridges that install directly onto the unit making filter installation and replacement simple, easy, and clean. Produce ultra clean, pollutant-free water for aquarium use and spend less time with cumbersome RO/DI unit upkeep.
AquaticLife Twist-In 4 Stage Compact Reverse Osmosis/Deionization System features "hinged", pivoting cartridge heads that tilt outwards to provide easy, crowd-free access to individual cartridges. Filter changes take only seconds with just a quarter turn and without contact with used filter material. Best of all, the supply water to the unit does not have to be turned off to replace any cartridge!
STAGE 1 - Twist-In Sediment Filter Cartridge: Recommend replacing every 6 months. The first stage of your RO unit is a 5-Micron Sediment Filter that traps sediment and other particulate matter like dirt, silt and rust, which will affect the appearance of your water.
STAGE 2 - Twist-In Carbon Block Filter Cartridge:
Recommend replacing every 6 months. The second stage of your RO unit is a Carbon Block Filter. The Activated Carbon in the filter reduces chlorine by up to 99% and conditions the water prior to the RO Membrane.
STAGE 3 - Twist-In RO Membrane Filter Cartridge: Recommended replacing every 1-2 Years. The RO Membrane reduces impurities known as Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) from the water down to 1/10,000 of a micron, reducing arsenic, lead, parasitic cysts, copper and more.
STAGE 4 - Twist-In Mixed Bed Color Changing Resin Deionization Cartridge: Replace filter when resin changes color completely to amber. After the water is filtered by the RO Membrane there is usually a small amount of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) left in the water. In certain non-drinking water applications, it is important to remove the remaining TDS from the water. This is accomplished by filtering the water through a deionization (DI) resin filter that is charged with Cation and Anion resins (H+ and OH-). As the resin absorbs the TDS, it will change color. When all resin has changed color, it is time to replace the DI filter. Because the process of filtering the high quality water takes time, it is common to use a storage tank to collect filtered water, making it available on demand.
