Hi all,
I have a massive nitrate issue, i use a RO system for my water but i have found out that my issue is my water supply has a rating of 50+.  is there anything i can do to help this but water changes arnt helping because of this. is there a RO filter i can get or a chemical or anything?

I'm not sure that's not just normal tbh.  Your RODI filter should remove all of this. Is it not doing so?

i thought you should have nitrate as low as possible and doing water changes lowers it. but surely having a reading of that will just top it up surely. My RO system has a carbon filter, sediment and a membrane

Sounds like you're missing a key element - the DI pod. It's vital for marines.

What's the nitrate reading in your freshly made up salt water?
