Why does BRS recommend this?
We recommend color changing resin for the fact that it will physically change colors as it gets exhausted.Â That allows you to monitor the consumption of the DI resin and know when to change it out.Â If you have a TDS meter we still recommend color changing resin as it will let you know when to monitor your TDS meter for when TDS starts creeping through the DI resin.Â When it comes to packaging not just any packaging will do, we package our DI resin in sealed Mylar bags for ultimate effectiveness and shelf life.
DI Resin is necessary to reduce Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) to zero and is the last stage of an RO/DI unit. Resin is sold in economical bulk bags as well as single use pouches. The resin is designed to be used with one of our refillable DI cartridges. This refillable design saves a small fortune over proprietary sealed cartridges.
Color Changing Mixed Bed DI Resin
BulkReefSupply.com takes pride in the proper packing of our DI Resin. DI resin begins depleting when exposed to air. To avoid this, we package all of our DI resin in foil-lined 4mm Mylar bags to prevent exposure to air that may deplete the resin while its waiting to be used. Our resin can remain packaged this way for 2 years without losing its capacity. Our bulk DI bags are perfect for reefers who process a lot of water or otherwise go through resin quickly. The bags are resealable via a featured zipper lock. Keep in mind this won't be as good as the original seal so we recommend them only for reefers who need a high volume of DI Resin. Otherwise, purchase the single refill packs for optimal freshness up to two years.
