Does an RO/DI filter remove Chlorine and Chloramine?

Do you still have to add water conditioner to RO/DI water? Does the RO/DI filter remove these chemicals?

Thanks,

Van

Depends on the stages and type of RO unit...

The carbon stage through the process is what will removes a majority of the chlorine and chloramines, so as long as you have that it wshould be fine. RO membranes will remove chlorine but they are not that effective on chloramines depending on the type of membrane. If the RO has a TFC membrane and a carbon stage, you should end up with 0 chloramines (or at least undetectable))

Cheers
Steve
