Best on the market By MAREK on 6/5/13MAREK would recommend this product to a friendBest quality on the market. Perfect for my 6 stage RODI from BRS. I'm always buying from BRS.
the taste By rppvt on 6/2/13rppvt would recommend this product to a friendthis is my first replacement of the DI resin in my new 5-stage filter and not only is the color-changing aspect great for quick checks of the status, but the water quality of .0 PPM of solids is like rain for my tanks. Coffee is incredible. I'm a huge BRS fan.
Wow! This stuff WORKS! By Robert on 5/31/13Robert would recommend this product to a friendI have NEVER had 0 TDS in my water until I used this resin. I always got between 10-30 TDS even with a new cartridge. I put this in and thought my TDS meter was broken but I verified it and it was indeed working and registering 0 TDS. What a great product!
Great product By Shawn on 5/31/13Shawn would recommend this product to a friendcolor change is awesome, i'll never use any other di resin.

Best I have used! By Andy on 5/15/13Andy would recommend this product to a friendNot only is this resin the best value for you money, it is always fresh in the vacuum packed bag. I make 200 gallons of saltwater at a time and will never settle for anything less than what BRS offers.
Love this stuff!!! By ndesquise on 5/14/13ndesquise would recommend this product to a friendColor Changing media is genus!!! And really reliable also! I have inline TDS meter installed in my system... and media changes color right on time!!
Will never go back to old product By BG on 5/4/13BG would recommend this product to a friendProduct is easy to add to canister I purchased at the time, been using product for over year and does great job. Have TDS inline meter and out of RO getting 3 to 5 out of Deionization Resin 0 for months. Like the color change feature and will never go back to DI material I used in pass.
Nicely sealed compact bag for long shelf life By Tim on 5/3/13Tim would recommend this product to a friendI'm on a well water and going through a water softener, I didn't think I needed to change my Deionization Resin a lot more then my ro filters but a great BRS video teach how to change DI and BRS has a nice sealed bag so I purchased many bags.
excellent product. By Bev on 5/3/13Bev would recommend this product to a friendI've tried other resins from e-bay and this resin is way better, lasts longer. Won't use any other.
love it By Steven on 5/2/13Steven would recommend this product to a friendI Love this product. It is very easy to change. It polishes my water to get me down to zero tds, which is great when you are trying to keep your nitrate levels down in your tank. I will keep ordering this product as long as own a tank.
Generous portion, great color change By Jeff on 5/2/13Jeff would recommend this product to a friendThis is good stuff. I get it in individual portioned bag to maintain the great vacuum seal they have. There is always a little more resin than I can cram into the canister. Color shifting is really pronounced.

Hi, I have the 5 stage plus RO/DI system and changing the resin and filter for the first time. When is the right time to change out the resin? are you base it on the color or the output reading of the TDS meter?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Lance,
The resin generally changed when the output on the TDS meter reads higher then 0, which will generally correspond with the cartridge finishing turning from a dark blue/black color to a light gold/yellow color. Between the two options though, because you have a TDS meter I would use that as the actual measurement and the color changing resin is a heads up that you should start checking it.

I will be changing the DI resin for the first time in my RODI system which I purchased from you. Therefore my question: Is the DI cartridge in my system refilllable or do I have to buy a rifillable cartridge in addition to the DI resin.
Thanks in advance, Tony
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Tony,
Good question! All of our RO/DI units come with a refillable cartridge for the DI resin!
BulkReefSupply.com takes pride in the proper packing of our DI Resin. DI resin begins depleting when exposed to air. To avoid this, we package all of our DI resin in foil-lined 4mm Mylar bags AND vacuum seal it so no air is left in the package to deplete the resin while its waiting to be used. Our resin can remain packaged this way for 2 years without losing its capacity. Our bulk DI bags are perfect for reefers who process a lot of water or otherwise go through resin quickly. The bags are resealable via a featured zipper lock. Keep in mind this won't be as good as the original seal so we recommend them only for reefers who need a high volume of DI Resin. Otherwise purchase the single refill packs for optimal freshness up to two years.
To get maximum life from your DI resin please takes the following steps
- Ensure optimal operation of your RO membrane. The higher your membranes rejection rate the fewer TDS your product water will contain resulting in longer lasting resin. The best way to keep the membrane rejection rate up is to monitor and change your prefilters appropriately as well as maintain at least 50psi going into the membrane.
- Ensure the resin is packed in the cartridge securely. The resin should be packed very tightly. When squeezed, there should be almost no flex to the cartridge.
- The initial couple minutes of water from your RO membrane will always be high, this is commonly referred to as TDS creep. Diverting the first few minutes of water down the drain can often greatly reduce DI resin consumption.
- Maintain low levels of carbon dioxide in your water supply. Excess carbon dioxide will deplete DI resin quickly. If you are depleting resin quickly and have already :addressed the two options above, excess carbon dioxide is the likely culprit. You have two choices:
- Collect the water coming from your RO system in a large container, add a powerhead or air stone and allow the CO2 to gas off. Then pump the water though your DI resin.
- Skip all that mess and just buy resin in bulk.
