polishing canister filter????

I have been thinking about getting a canister filter, with pleated polishing filter. I was thinking of running this for just a few hours a week to "polish" the water.

1. Is this a good idea?

2. What is a good cheap (if there is such a thing) one to get?

Thank you for the tips!!!!

-20gal tall sump / refugium.
-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
