Great Stuff By Rick on 4/18/14Rick would recommend this product to a friendBy far the best resin I have used. The colors are easier to tell when the resin is used up than with most.
No surprise here! By Tommy Gee on 4/12/14Tommy Gee would recommend this product to a friendIf you've evered wonder when it's time to change out your DI Resin, wonder no more!
BRS's Color Changing Resin, when new, is blue.
As the media becomes exhausted, it changes color i.e. from blue to brown allowing immediate (easy) identification. How easy is that!
If you want to take the guesswork out of resin replacement, guess no more. You will not be disappointed.
Good Product By Gary on 4/8/14Gary would recommend this product to a friendWorks well, fills the canister with a little left over.
Peace of Mind By Saltwater Lady on 4/8/14Saltwater Lady would recommend this product to a friendNice to have the extra security when making RO/DI water. Keeps the TDS meter in check when the color changing and the TDS meter start showing when it's time to change the DI resin.
wish i had discovered this sooner By david on 3/28/14david would recommend this product to a friendI wish I would have discovered this sooner. Makes me cringe knowing all the money wasted with the throw-away DI filters. Color changes to let you know to watch your TDS meter.
worth every penny By nate on 3/19/14nate would recommend this product to a friendThis last longer than the resin that comes with the unit
Great resin, good prices By Michael on 3/18/14Michael would recommend this product to a friendI have been using this DI resin for the 9 months I have had my RODI system. It is so easy to use due to the color change of the material. Pay the extra couple of bucks from the basic, it is worth it.
good By James on 3/14/14James would recommend this product to a friendFast shipping, dose as expected, 1.25lb had more than enough in the bag.
Excellent By Bradley on 3/12/14Bradley would recommend this product to a friendWhat can I say? Does the job. Even a little extra in the bag. I saw this stuff for sale in a local fish shop for $35.99 a bag!!!!! Hopefully people realize they could order directly from BRS and save a bundle!
GREAT DI RESIN By James on 3/7/14James would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff is awesome and seems to last longer then the junk I've bought off ebay. Ill always buy my resin from BRS!!!!
Product Great - Shpping length excessive - which is why it is 4 stars and not 5 By Jeff on 2/9/14Jeff would recommend this product to a friendBRS has great product and this is no different and the price is right.
What I think needs improvement is shipping time especially if it is not free.To take a week to get a product in today's time is too long IMO. My order was shipped on 1/26 and I received on 2/3 via UPS.

Ok, I'm using a color change di resin now, not BRS, but same principle. I'm kinda new to ro/di making. The bottom of my cannister has a light brown color too it now that goes up about 2 inches. TDS is still at 0. Do you change it when just a little brown going up or wait till whole cannister has turned brown? Sorry to be so naive but like I said not been doing this long. Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Valerie,
You want to wait until the TDS starts to read above 0 as the TDS meter is the ultimate say, but generally speaking that is going to correspond with the DI resin turning almost entirely brown.

I noticed that your DI resin is vacuum sealed. If I purchase the larger bag that has 6 changes in it, once I open the bag, it will no longer be vacuum sealed. Will this affect the product in any way?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Earl,
If you use the resin quickly it wouldn't have any sort of noticeable effect if you close the seal after each use but if you are purchasing and planning it for long term storage then you would be better off purchasing the individual bags.
by john on December 22, 2013, @6:42 AM
di resin straight out of a brand new bag already has 40-50% brown in it.. is it already exsausted??
Bulk Reef Supply Hi John,
No it is not. Half of the DI resin beads are always brown and half are blue. The brown always stay brown and the blue resin changes from blue to clear as it is exhausted giving the appearance that the entire cartridge has turned brown.
by Andrew on September 6, 2013, @10:38 AM
Does the color changing di turn noticeable brown? My di has brown in it however you really have to look close to see it.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Andrew,
The DI resin changes from a dark blue/black color to a light gold yellow color. You should easily be able to tell from across the room!

Will your RO/DI filters fit my Coralife II
Bulk Reef Supply HI Alan,
They sure will. All of the above (and basically any RO/DI unit) uses standard 10" cartridge sizes.
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.
