Reverse Osmosis

I had a quick question about R/0 systems. I have a reverse osmosis system not a R/O D/I system, does anybody think this could have any effect on excessive algae growth? I believe the de-ionization part takes out the phosphates which help algae grow but I Need a second opinion. Thanks

Thank you for getting that for me, that was helpful. I found a deionization unit add-on and was thinking about buying it. I just needed some clarification. Thanks again.

Along with a DI unit, may I recommend a refugium with live plants to remove excess nutrients.

I do have a refugium with some live plants. Probably could use some more though.

RO/DI is the best route to go. How big is the refuge and what`s in it?

I have a little bit of chaeto and some CAULERPA. It is a 15-20 gal refugium. With some HO T5 10k lighting above it. One of these nights I will take some pictures of my tanks, refugium, and sump and post it on here, if anyone is interested.
