So the CO2 was depleting my DI very fast. 125 gallons of 2 chambers of DI were exhausted from co2. So what I had to do was take apart the DI hoses from the membrane carbon block and sediment filter and drain that water into a 35 gallon container. Using a bubbler and a pinch of Kalk I managed to raise that waters ph in 24 hrs. I then had to hook up another sediment filter to remove the solid kalk then plumb into the DI resin. Using a mag7 I pumped the container water through the sediment filter and into the DI. After 30 gallons of water through the resin I have noticed no DI being exhausted. It was complicated but I think I solved my low co2/ph problem
