I'm in Tempe and tap water TDS is over 500 (Gh=18 KH=10). My RO drops it to around 30 (~94% rejection) and I'm definitely mindful of keeping up with filter changes. Since you have DI and your TDS...

I'm not sure that there is. It was the concern of the original poster.

This is a theoretical value. In an open system, like an aquarium, CO2 tends to equilibrate with the atmospheric concentration. Even with zero buffering one would need to be constantly injecting CO2...

After reading more closely I see that your water contains chloramine. Again, as NWA said, carbon will break the chloramine bond but then you would have free ammonia. Not good. You could use some...

I agree with TWA. RO does not remove chlorine/chloramine. In fact, they will harm the membrane. The carbon prefilter is what removes them. If this is your goal why not just buy a carbon filter? ...

The point I was trying to make is that I believe it is the CO2 you are injecting into the tank that is causing the pH swing. Without any buffering capacity (0 KH) the excess CO2 you are putting into...

Sulfate adds nothing to KH. Alkalinity yes, KH no.

pH swings are typical when you have a low KH. CO2 levels are buffered by bicarbonates and carbonates. I can't say for sure, but I would...
