- Clear Refillable Cartridge for DI Resin
Filling a DI Cartridge is easy. The most important thing to remember is to tightly pack the DI resin into the cartridge. Loose DI will cause the water to channel through the DI, greatly reducing the effectiveness.
Available in Four Sizes:
- 2.5" x 10" Cartridge (Standard - most used cartridge size)
- 4.5" x 10" Cartridge
- 2.5" x 20" Cartridge
- 4.5" x 20" Cartridge
NOTE: 99% of customers purchase the 2.5" x 10" Cartridge (SKU 200002)
How to refill an empty DI Cartridge
- Unscrew the bottom cap from the DI cartridge and remove the foam ring.
- Pour in the DI resin and pack it down tightly as hard as you can. Tap on a counter to help settle the resin.
- At this point the resin should be tightly packed flush to the rim.
- Put the foam ring back inside the screw cap and screw the cap on.
- Place the newly filled cartridge into the RO canister and make sure the arrow on the side of the cartridge points up.
Should have upgraded sooner By RSnodgrass on 7/18/2017RSnodgrass would recommend this product to a friendI should have upgraded sooner, this is a much better design then my old one and easier to use.
Quality By Cave Man on 3/7/2016Cave Man would recommend this product to a friendThis is a well built part and I would recommend getting it. (Wish it came with a storage container) Where will I keep it while not in use so it stays clean? I suppose I will build one from PVC. Either way it is a great value and good quality. Get it!

No brainer By JD on 1/19/2015JD would recommend this product to a friendI have to shut off the water supply to my sink while changing out filters/ DI resin. Well, emptying out the DI cartridge can get a little messy... especially with no water to clean it up with. With the extra cartridge it becomes easy.

Does this cartridge need to be cleaned or bleached in between refills? If so, what is the best way to do this?
These do not need to be cleaned in between uses and simply replacing the media is all that is needed.
I am wanting to buy the refillable cartridge and media for my DI. About how much DI resin fits into the cartridge? I want to make sure I buy enough resin.
1.25lb refill will change one cartridge. I have included a link to the I resin below.
Will this fit a coralife filter?
10" seems a bit tall for my filter
Unfortunately we are not familiar with the exact size of a coralife unit. These will work with most standard filter cartridges which are 10" tall from bottom to the top of the threads. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Can you please tell me how many lbs of DI resin the 4.5"x20" filters hold? I'm guessing about 3lbs each. Thanks.
In order to change my DI resin, to I have to have the refillable cartridge?
If you want to use the loosefill vacuum sealed DI resin like ours then you would have to have a refillable DI cartridge (which is included on all of our RO/DI units). Some other manufacturers use sealed DI cartridges which can't be empty and necessitate the changing of the entire cartridge. If this is the case, just pick up a refillable cartridge and you are set.
What kind of connectors do these have?
These are just internal cartridges meant to go inside of the corresponding canister. The cartridges themselves don't hook up to tubing or have any fittings on them.
Does the standard cartridge fit the spectrapure units?
We use standard size cartridges which makes them interchangeable with any other standard size unit on the market including your unit and almost all others!
