The filters look good to me. The sediment filter is white when brand new but turns that orange color quick, after a couple weeks depending on how much you use it. Your best bet would be to test the water coming out of the unit to make sure it measures 0 TDS

+1, when your TDS is above 0ppm, change out the filter. I usually swap out the DI and the sediment filter and test again. I dont change carbon filters as often as the sediment and DI.

I paid $55 for the unit so I believe I got a decent deal on it. Considering the unit cost $170 brand new. Can I use the bulk reef supply brand cartridges for this system
