I understand some people use UV steraliser in their systems  could you not just use something like this after the di resin output on the ro unit so it is only done once?

After the DI there should be nothing in the water other than ... water!

The reason people run them in the tank is because they reduce (note, not remove!) stuff like parasites, algae spores etc.  They also help with water clarity.

There are a few videos on BRS TV on YouTube about them. You can make your mind up if they're worth it...
