    You would need to plug in a de-ionizer resin unit

    Post a pic Rob because I suspect yours has remineralisers in it to make the water taste better

    I see one with little pebbles in it which is your remineraliser. I cant figure out what the other two are. What does it say on the filter as I cant make out the writing?
