RO/DI system. How it works, the structure, etc

I'm going to purchase a RO/DI system in June (hopefully). I don't really understand how it works. Does this mix SW too? Or does it just purify tap water, and then I mix salt myself? If someone could explain the replacements I would have to buy of stuff every month or so too that would be great. (like carbon or something) Thanks.

It just filters your tap or garden hose water through several stages of filters removing all the baddies. It has an output of "dirty" water and one for "pure" water.

It only makes clean regular old water. You just use it like you would any other water, mix your salt match temp etc.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
