I used to use 5 micro filters for this purpose and they did filter a lot of white stuff. You need to clean the filter every few days and I found it very inconvenient!

I can't remember where did I buy it but for starter, you can try this:

I used one canister (not sure how it is called) like the ones for the RODI unit, with a 1 micron sediment filter (that is usually used in the RODI units) in it.

That is smart! How often do you need to replace the sediment filter?

Why are you so concerned about PO4 level? What's it at and what are you targeting? Mine is still around 0.067 ppm and I don't use any Phosphate remover. There's no algae in the display tank thanks to my fishes but there are some in the overflow box and refugium.

Look at a tank like this - http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh....php?t=2366953 with PO4 level about 20 times higher than mine...

I take it out and wash it with garden hose ones a week. After 4-5 weeks I replace it to be on the safe side.

My phosphate level is a .66, I have been running GFO for a year in two phos rx and change out the media every 6 weeks and it doesn't go down, I dont have any algae issues BUT my Coral growth is not very good. Hense the Phosphate RX I hope it works,

I ordered 2x 10 micron socks and they are on their way.
