    Default RO/DI Saltwater filters

    I have a 5 chamber Ro/di unit.. I forgot what ones i needed in order to replace them. I know i use the Sediment filter, Chlorine (because my city adds chlorine to the tap water), MaxCap DI cartridge ( i think), Mix bed Di cartridge ( i think ).

    I was told to not use the Carbon block filter (from link below) and replace it with something else, so i had 2 of the same filters. The filters i currently have don't say what they are. They are pretty dirty so its hard to point out what one is which.

    1. Sediment
    2. Chloramine
    3/4. Mix bed Di Cartridge (x2?)
    5. Max Di Cartridge

    Why not use carbon? I'd prob do sediment, carbon, chloramine, Di, Max di.

    Typically the first to go is the di, and depending on how much water your making in regards to the sediment and carbon block.

    The Choramine is also a carbon filter.

    Gotcha. I'd run two of these then. Heard chloramines really diminishes the carbons lifespan. Sometimes I wonder if some of these chloramine filters are marketing gimmickry. I'm pretty sure there's some legit filters out there, but what makes this carbon different from a normal carbon filter?
