Blue resin is how much I had to replace. Got running now to flush the system out. Red tint on top of the Ani (white/blue) is from the dye in the red resin, as that was sitting for a while, it'll clear up. Water flows Sediment>carbon>carbon>kati>ani through 3/8" tubing.
This will supply the 75g tank I'm slowly setting up, as well as my small 20g long frag tank.
No waste water like RO, but you do have to spend about ~$50 a year or so to recharge the resins with muriatic acid & lye (depends on how much water you filter).
Tap water: 190 TDS
1st bucket while flushing the system: 041 TDS.
2nd bucket after system was flushed: 001 TDS
