That is correct.

Buying an RO/DI unit is one of the best decisions I made when starting out in this hobby.

The bio balls could be part of the issue with high nitrates. I'm guessing you have a wet/dry filter under the tank?? Probably the best thing you could do for your tank is to remove the bio balls and replace them with Live Rock Rubble.
