Some units can, but they have to have UV sterilizers and micron filters.

I actually forgot to ask, but would it even affect marine life?? Yes it could make us sick, but would anything in our tanks be harmed?

These are mostly bacterial contamination. If your life stock is healthy it should not be a problem. The salt water also acts as an antibacterial for allot of the water born diseases.

depends on the disease. Alot of diseases are a result of what the bacteria produce and not the bacteria.

Might be an idea to upgrade your RO unit to a 5 or 6 stage, I would imagine it would help a bit.

Gross.

But I would imagine only about half of your pee would become water in the end dunno.

Still gross though.
