The regular rodi ones are the standard 10 inch. The two larger ones are "Big Blue" canisters. They are I think 4X10 and 4X20 The big one holds the 20BB filters and the smaller one is the same diameter but shorter. I have pressure gauges before the large two filters, after the large two filters, after the RODI carbon blocks (pre-membrane) and one on the pressure tanks, after the check valve.

Maybe that is a little confusing. I have a 6 stage RODI from BRS that I am replacing all the filters for. In front of that whole unit, I have a larger 2 stage filter set that houses the two largers filters that are 4X10 and 4X20 (the big blue filters).

The pentek Chloramine removal cartridge would work very well in your 20" BB, and add a sediment into the smaller 10" BB

Thanks for your help. All I need now is a new 99% membrane and a maxcap DI and I'll be set!

I have a MaxCap 90 system with your carbon block. We have chloramines in our city water supply. What is the best way to go here? Should I add a housing and move my sediment filter and carbon block while adding the chlorimine block where the carbon block had been?

Thanks.

Your first order is best.

.5 micron sediment, .5 micron carbon block, chloramine block, membrane.

Let the standard carbon do its best, leaving the difficult molecules to the chloramine block.
