What are these things?

Ok, so purchased this tank/cage, but I have no idea what the blue things are, guessing filters of some kind.  Could any of you shed some light please?  And, what do I do with them?

 

Just in case you are wondering, I usually double Di straight to my tank.

 

Thanks in advance,

Probably a 5 micron pre filter and a carbon block filter usual Before a reverse osmosis filter that has perhaps been removed.

they remove contaminants that could damage the more expensive revers osmosis filter removing particle and chlorine etc.

Exactly what i use on one of my systems 10" filters and very inexpensive and needed to save the resin from being hammered

Thanks gent's, much appreciated.

Next question, is it worth keeping them after the double Di vessels?

 You would use them before the DI vessels.

Always use them before the DI vessels

They work as scrubbers and remove particles and a certain amount of **** before it hits your resin
