Reverse Osmosis filter: A reverse osmosis filter is a unit that can easily be attached to a home faucet which removes total dissolved solids from your tap water by forcing it through a RO membrane. There is also an optional additional stage to remove nearly all total dissolved solids from your tap water called de-ionization. An RO/DI filter will provide you with the purest water free of all harmful contaminants. If you choose to use RO/DI water for your aquarium, be sure to add minerals back into the water that were removed during the filtering process. Some minerals are needed to increase the GH/KH and pH to stable levels. A product I use is called equilibrium by the aquarium company Seachem laboratories. This product is designed specifically for restoring RO water with necessary minerals.
