I've just invested in a 3 stage RO unit that should arrive sometime this week.
I've been doing some research and I'm aware that I need to aerate the RO water, adjust it's pH and add in some trace minerals, prior to adding it to the tank.
Most of the pH adjusters I've used in the past contain high levels of free phosphate which have caused my tank algae problems.
Is there a single product out there that will raise and stabilise pH to around 6 - 6.5, add trace minerals and doesn't contain phosphates?
