No real difference By DurocShark on 11/17/2015

I replaced the OEM block in my filter with one of these. Without the DI resin, I could still taste chlorine at the same level as the original carbon filter. Granted, I'm in SoCal with lots of chlorine and chloramine, but I was hoping for more.
Now, having run 100 or so gallons of produced water, I'm burning through DI at about the same rate. At least in my environment, it wasn't worth the price premium.

Great video on how Chloramine's are not removed from my 4 stage RO/DI. 5th stage was easy to hook up. CS was helpful on what was needed.
yes, but use it with catalytic carbon By Charles on 3/1/2015

This works well, but I suggest using it with activated catalytic carbon. Really removes the chloramines.

I purchased an RODI system and it came with regular carbon filters. Well I didn't know very much about this, but my system went to the fishes in about 2 months with only 300 Gallons used, and TDS was running at around 26. I then did more research and found out my area uses Chloramines, and it pretty much killed all the filters I had on my system. I then repurchased all filters from BRS and everything is working like a charm. These filters did the job and hope that it last me more than a few months this time around!
You need this if you have Chloramines in your water By Chad on 3/4/2014

I've been using these for years and love that BRS carries them. Alot of water companies are using Chloramines now, and if they are, you need to be removing it from your water. This is as good as it gets for removal as far as i'm concerned.
Highl Recommend Adding ChlorPlus 10 Carbon Block By Kenneth on 2/17/2013

A number of cities are starting to use Chloramine. Chloramine is becoming more common as an alternative to chlorine for water treatment and must be treated differently. Your ciity can switch over without leting you know. Chloramine left untreated can cause alge blooms in your tanks.

I started making my own water about a year ago and since have had some algea issues. I've tried everything under the sun to correct it. Then I started researching Chloramines (after seeing a BRS video on it) and the affect it has on a reef tank. Thinking this might be my problem I called my county water supply and sure enough they use Chloramines in our water. I added this as an additional stage to my already 4 stage RO/DI unit (which made it a 5 stage now). I have already noticed that I don't get the algae breakout after top offs. So with time I hope this will rid my algae problem. Thanks Bulk Reef you opened my eyes to Chloramines.
No more dechlorination and dead fish By Michel on 11/30/2011

That was a great investment and if my fish could talk, they would probably thanks me!!!
it's expensive so I put 4 stars as value
It works By Brian on 9/20/2011

Chloramines are a persistent disinfectant ... the last thing I want in a reef system. The City of Houston endeavors to provide safe, high-quality drinking water and uses Chloramines to sanitize surface water and keep it safe as it transits the over 100 year old delivery system. For me, a Chloramine filter is a slam dunk.
Great deal and great performance. By Alexey on 10/1/2010

After completely tearing apart my regular RO system, I replaced the cheapo carbon filter with this guy. It cleans up chloramines which are being added to water in more and more municipalities, it's bad stuff!
The price here was pretty good for this unit and I haven't regretted my decision. I also added a regular carbon block filter right in front of it as well. It's got a really good mesh to prevent any carbon seepage which can really affect the life of your RO membrane. Good stuff!
