I also add a tablespoon of Kalk to the first container before it goes into the DI but you need to add another sediment filterand feed the water into that first. If you try and just use your RO/DI you will exhaust the DI after about 100 gallons
Wow, theres nothing on the market to make it easier? I might have to scrap the 300 and go with my 60's I have lying around

Nothing out there. I’ve checked all around before I started it. Not so bad. You just need to make water 2 days before hand. What I did was start the tank and just replaced the DI as it was filling up. For your tank you probably will need 4di changes. I did 3
