RO unit DI ??

my tanks only been running for a few weeks but so far its 100% RO water, I've now read that RO by itself will not remove PO4, is this true? if so would it be worth adding an inline DI cartridge for water changes ?? TIA

Have you tested your RO water for phosphates?

Thanks, I don't have a phosphate test kit but the DI stage probably wouldn't cost too much more, so it may be worth just getting one anyway.
