I would have your water tested by another source to verify your numbers. All of the above are great suggestions on how to handle this issue. Bottom line though if you are replacing water that already has high nitrates you aren't really getting anywhere. As was mentioned if you aren't going to house corals then 20 isn't so bad. If you are going for corals then there are several adjustments you may want to consider to your system and RO/DI should be at the top of the list.
