So, diatomes will never go away if using tap water? I have to get a RO/DI kit?

mine burnt themselves out. I'm still looking for the best price on a RO filter. I'm sure they will eventually pop back up if I keep using tap water though.

lol. I hope you did the stockings justice.

MY CUC seems to be doing a really good job with keeping the diatoms under control. They are amazing little critters.

They are amazing little critters and they really do their job well, if only they could clean the house too...
