Expanding on its line of reverse osmosis (RO) and deionization (DI) water filtration systems, Aquatic Life is debuting its Classic RO/DI Series into the aquarium marketplace. The classic series is comprised of three models—a three-stage RO unit, a four-stage RO/DI unit and a dual DI filtration unit—and feature tried-and-true technology necessary for growing plants and keeping fish.
“We wanted to create a series that would allow the hobbyist to customize their RO/DI systems to their preferences,” said Michael Elliott, co-owner of Aquatic Life. “The models in the Classic Series are great options for those just getting into water filtration systems and for those who are looking to adapt their current system based on the contaminants in their water.”
Filtering up to 100 gallons per day (GPD), the new Classic RO/DI Filtration Series undergo a multi-stage process to perform specific functions essential for creating a healthy aquarium environment. Using standard 10-inch carbon and sediment cartridges encased in clear housing canisters, the Classic 50 GPD three-stage RO unit removes harmful substances such as heavy metal ions and total dissolved solids (TDS) from tap water. The Classic 100 GPD four-stage RO/DI unit takes water purification one step further, utilizing a membrane pressure gauge and a fourth DI resin cartridge that changes colors when exhausted and time to replace.
For hobbyists who have an RO unit but want to add a DI system for further filtering, the Classic Dual Deionization Filtration unit is a great addition. After water is filtered by an RO membrane, it passes through a color-changing resin cartridge where the remaining TDS is removed from the water. Once the TDS is removed, hobbyists can take the purified water and add back the correct amounts of trace elements to better match natural ocean water.
The Classic RO/DI Filtration Series includes tubing, water supply connections, cartridges and the membrane. For more information about Aquatic Life and its premium product offerings, please visit www.aquaticlife.com.
