RODI filters have Algae

I have just recently started using an RODI filter. I see the filters have turned brown with what I assume is algae. Is this normal? If not, what do I need to do to stop this?
Thanks in advance

I don't have any experience with an RO/DI yet but from what I've read that brown is not alga, it is the sediment that is being removed from the water (or something to that effect).

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!

Smitty is correct.The unit is doing what it is supposed,remove all that crap from the water. You will need change the filters eventually,just keep testing the water and you will know when you need to replace them.
