A RODI system is an important piece of equipment for maintaining a healthy reef tank. It purifies water and limits problematic algae growth by removing things like silicates, phosphates and nitrates. RODI systems also remove chlorine and other harmful elements such as heavy metals. To run a RODI unit at an optimal level, it is critical to have sufficient water pressure since low pressure can have a negative impact on the purity and output of the product water. If pressure is hovering in the 40 psi range or below, then strong consideration should be given to a booster pump. A booster pump will increase water pressure going into the unit and result in higher production rates. The pump will MORE
