the charcoal after the DI is the source of your phosphates
I got my filter from them as well and I do not have anything after my DI filter.. Your DI filter should be the very last thing your water passes thru.. My filter is a 6 stage and has 5 stages prior to the DI.. I would contact Filter Direct as it sounds like you might have gotten confused with the install directions of the DI filter part.. It took me 30 mins reading the install directions over and over before I comprehended it..

in the special note where it shows "details of the two filters on top" opt1 and opt2.

i used opt1 because i am not using the system for drinking water and that opt has the post di water go thru the charcoal filter. in opt2 "use for drinking water and aquarium use" the di does not go thru the charcoal filter. i followed the instructions exactly but could still get two different results.

there are only four stages before the di filter but there are a total of six stages when including the di filter and the polishing filter

I just looked thru my install instructions on mine and the below was the only thing that I could find anywhere even close to what you mentioned.. And it shows the DI filter as the final stage as well..

HTH,
James

Here is also a picture of how mine is setup.. Now I have mine setup for drinking water as well but according to the Directions from my understanding is if you are using it for Just Aquarium Use you would remove the final Carbon Filter and put the DI filter in its place..

I guess you can say all mine were quick connects as well to a sense.. All I had to do was stick in the hose and tighten down the nut.. Very easy.. My instructions came with and are for the 5 stage ro 585 unit..
