I'm finding black resin in my RO/DI that I'm getting from my LFS. I know they use Tropic Marin for salt. Any ideas of what this might be?

Do the employees look like they smoke weed?

Tell them to stop cashing their bowls out over the RODI reservoir out back.

Problem solved.

I would ask them about it to be honest.

Yeah.

Ask them why your supposedly 0 TDS RODI has solid, black particles in it.

If its resin they have a DI that has been compromised.
16G Bowfront Nanoreef. 100G SPS dominated reef.
