Everything you need to add a dual stage DI to your existing RO system. SpectraPure, Inc. Revolutionary MaxCap DI " cartridge has over 3 times more capacity than any other Mixed-Bed or Hi-Silica removal deionizing cartridge. Install after your existing RO system to remove any unwanted algae growth in your aquarium. This incredible break-through in DI cartridge technology will enable you to produce DI water at less than half of any other dual stage DI systems.

SpectraPure's Dual MaxCap DI" System comes with:
2-Position Housing & Mounting Bracket
MaxCap DI " Cartridge. (The MaxCap cartridge removes ammonia left by water sources that contain chloramines.)
SilicaBuster " DI Cartridge
Dual-Probe TDS Meter (Determines when the MaxCap DI TM Cartridge is exhausted. When the output TDS exceeds 75% of the input TDS,change the Cartridge.)
Universal Filter Wrench
Retail-Ready Package


In many applications, the MAXCAP DI" (DI-MC-10) is installed up-stream of a Mixed-Bed or Hi-Silica removal cartridge. For example, if the RO water entering the MAXCAP DI" has 20 ppm TDS (Total Dissolved Solids), the original DI cartridge may process about 400 gallons of pure DI water. By placing a MAXCAP DI" cartridge in front of the original cartridge, 1200 gallons of water will pass through both cartridges before the MAXCAP DI" is exhausted. The original DI cartridge will be only one-third exhausted. A second MAXCAP DI" will process another 1200 gallons and the original cartridge will now be two-thirds exhausted. Only after a third MAXCAP DI" cartridge processes another 1200 gallons will the original cartridge finally become fully exhausted.

That's 3600 gallons purified with only 4 (3 MAXCAP DI" + 1 Mixed-Bed) cartridges, not 9 (9 x 400 = 3600).

All systems now come standard with our best 0.5 (half) micron sediment and carbon pre filters! While our competitors use inferior 1 micron, or 5 micron filters, we have chosen to put a high quality pre filter on every system we sell for the Aquatic market. These are our longest life, highest capacity pre filters (although we do offer the ZetaZorb ultra high capacity sediment which is a 0.2 micron filter for unusually difficult fine sediment challenged areas).

All of Spectrapure systems also use Spectrapure RO membranes which are treated with a proprietary solution to enhance rejection and production. Competitor systems use membranes that are often as low as 96% rejection, which compromised DI life as every 2% improvement in rejection extends the life of your DI by double.
