Reverse Osmosis Question

Short but sweet story.

Had freshwater for the longest time used tap water never have had a problem if i used the right chemicals.

I am now into salt water and i am catching up on the do's and dont's of salt and learning as much as possible before i get to deep into it. I currently have 2 55 gallon tanks running with just starter fish right now and wanting to get more of course later on. I have been recently told that if i use tap water eventually by doing water changes over time that the chemicals in the water from the tap will kill my whole tank. I was told by getting a reverse osmosis system that this will solve my problem and i can prevent this from happening to my tanks. If this is right what type and size should i use for my tanks?

Any ideas, thoughts, or comments are very much appreciated

Thank You for helping my 's Stay healthy!

It doesn't usually kill your whole tank. It usually does cause massive algae problems though. With saltwater... RO or even RO/DI is not optional. I wouldn't consider using anything else.
