RODI

Does reverse osmosis alone remove any phosphate from the water at all? or will only DI remove phosphate? if so would this work? TIA

The DI section is what removes PO4.

It should. If you have very high PO4 levels in your tap water you may need 2 DI chambers to eliminate it all. HTH

You ought to think about getting a RO/DI unit and getting rid of it all. Not just phosphates. You can get them for a very good price on ebay. Good Luck

You can purchase a unit that only De-Ionizes water. They are cheaper than an entire R/O and easier to use as well. Aquarium Pharmaceuticals makes one that I have found to be very efficient.

The reverse osmosis is more for the phosphates, the deionization is more for the excess metals the R/O misses.

This better explains the different methods of filtration, and how they benefit different uses.
