Your blue line (treated water) from RO will go into the DI which is the added extra stage of filtration.

I have the same unit. It is really easy. The red line on the larger piece should be the intake from your water source. The smaller filter (your DI part) has the blue tube on the right. It should plug into a spot on top of the larger unit, right on the canister that you are unable to see through. Trim the hose to length as well.
Did you not get the instructions with the unit?

Well, the seperate canister is your di part. Just plug the tube from the top of the 4 stage into the right side of the seperate canister. Fill that canister with DI resin, making sure you pack it in hard and use an entire bag of the resin, and you should be good to go.

Don't forget to run about 10 gallons through it before you use any water.

Just your salt and a heater. As long as your TDS reads 0
