    Deionization unit?

    I noticed Curt uses the deionization process...I have seen the units advertised, but couldn't figure out how they worked. Do you have to put the water in a holding tank or what? Thanks for any information. The ro unit was easy for me to figure out.

  • Hi Joyce ...The reason I told jay he might have to go with a RO unit was to get rid of some of those trace elements in his water..curt explained the RO thing well...however he mentioned the DO unit because although RO is effective in removing trace elements still some measurable amounts can remain..nitrates,phosphates and silica will not be completely removed..now the DI unit which usually attaches to the output of the RO unit then further passes the water through a multi-layered bed of of resins + and - charged polymers react with the contaminates and you get pure water with absolutely no detectable trace elements...anyway all this stuff it's cheap either...but that's it in a nut shell....


  • I have a reverse osmosis unit by Kent called a bare bones unit. I can't see how I would attach a Di unit to it.Mine is about 90% which is fine for me. I just wanted to know how the DI worked. My bare bones unit has a waste water feed and a good water feed and that's it.

  • Hi again joyce..yes I know the unit you have there are two types the CTA and TFC..the TFC membrane is better and removes about 95% of all nitrates and CTA is about 70%.. these are nice little units but I think you have to have a Full size or Maxxima unit to combine the RO and DO technology...however you might be able to get some kind of adapter for yours..butI am not sure of this....

  • Thanks for the info. I may upgrade when this unit needs a new membrane.
