Rodi filter change help

Bought new filters for a coralife pure flo 2 rodi system. Got it from bulk reef supply and I think they had to cross reference the part numbers to their filters. Anyway. Never done it bf. the first filter hanging on bottom left is obvious to replace. Does the 5 micron go second or the .6 micron second. Then the third filter does not contain a "canister" it is just three different types of media in the clear screw on piece. Do I dump that and put their canister with demonization media in it? Help I'm lost. Then the filter on top doesn't seem to come out???? Help.

To be honest I don't even think it is a di unit. Can or how do I add to it. To make it even worse the lfs charged me $359 for it!!! That was a year ago. Have learned a lot since then!!!

The box says the third canister is a mixed bed deionization cartridge.

I believe the different colors are the DI resin changing color because it's spent. Can you take some pictures of what you have there and post them here?

Sounds like you are missing 1 filter. Not sure which side is first but it should start with bigger size 5 microns. The set should go with 2 plastic wrenches to remove the canister.

Got it to work!! The first filter on left has been changed. I think the second one can be replaced with one they sent me also. The third looks like it just has resin poured in ( mixed) the top one would not come out of housing and I did not force it. Hooked up a new tds meter. 450 going in and 27 coming out. Is that good or bad?

Bought di resin from brs. Can I just dump it in the third canister on the right. That just didn't seem right to me. What about the tds readings? Is 27 good. Thank you both for the help!
