While I can totally geek out with tech, I would like some recommendations on RODI systems. I am hoping to do caridina shrimp and this is pretty much a requirement. I never had one before and do not know what is best. I don’t plan to go saltwater anytime soon so a simple system with low waste is preferred. What are your thoughts? Many thanks, Tedrock.
When we first moved into our new home, one of the things the old owners were doing was renting a water softener. It was a service we knew we would drop ande put it on the to-do list. Welp, we finally reached this line item and have bought a full filtration/softener set up. The kit came with a pleated sediment filter, a large GAC/KDF mixed media filter, the water softener and a 4 filter RO kit. My question is thus, would I be better served supplying the RO system from water before or after the softener. My thought is before. But being just smart enough to be dangerous, I wonder if that is correct. I wonder if maybe the magnesium and calcium in the water might be worse for the system, spoiling the filters faster than the sodium ions. Anyone smarter than I have a solid answer on this and can share some knowledge?
