The RO/DI unit is excellent idea. It will stop the fuel cycle for the algea. Just manually take the algea out little by little and go to RO/DI and you`ll be on track

[/quote]So does anyone want to give me any suggestions on my theory or explain how and where I am going to run this unit...[quote]

I had my rodi hooked up in the laundry room right of the cold water to the washing machine. Went into one of those big round garbage cans. Then used the python hose to fill the tank with new rodi water. I new that spare mag drive would come in handy for something. Its great pump the water out, pump the new stuff in. Makes life just a little easier.
The rodi water cleared up some of my algea problems in a little 20 nano. HTH

Why don't people every suggest a turbo snail. Mexican turbos are great and will eat algae at a fast rate. They are very good at gettign things all cleaned up.
