Installation Procedure
PARTS LIST (SEE FIGURE 1, PAGE 2)
SAFETY
Always follow these safety precautions when
installing and operating the water filter system:
DO NOT use with water that is microbiologically
unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the system.
DO NOT use a torch or other high temperature
sources near filter or cartridge.
DO NOT install on line pressures above 125 psi
(862 kPa).
DO NOT install on hot water line. Maximum
temperature allowed is 100°F (38°C).
DO NOT install in direct sunlight.
DO NOT reverse connections. The system must
be installed with the inlet and outlet as labeled.
DO NOT install filter system in locations where it
can be damaged by other freestanding equipment.
DRAIN filter system at temperatures below 40°F
(4.4°C). Protect from freezing.
INSTALLATION must comply with existing state
or local plumbing codes.
This piece of equipment is made in America and
has American sizes on hardware. All metric
conversions are approximate and vary in size.

MOUNTING
1) Remove the mounting bracket template from
this manual. Tape it to the wall where the
mounting bracket is to be installed.
2) Install mounting screws (not included) into
each of the keyhole locations on the template.
Be sure to leave a 1/8" to 1/4" space between
the bottom of the screw head and the wall so
that the bracket can be hung.
NOTE: Mounting hardware must be
capable of supporting a minimum of 50 lbs
(22.7 kg).
3) Hang the Bracket/Tank Assembly from the
mounting screws.
4) Once the bracket is hung, tighten the
mounting screws so that the bracket is snug
between the screw and the wall.
Note: Make sure that the bracket is securely
mounted to a wall stud or other appropriate
wall structure.
FEEDWATER PARAMETERS
Be sure to confirm that the feedwater falls within
the limits shown below. If you’re not sure if this has
been done, check with your distributor before
installing the system. This is important because
failures caused by water related problems are not
covered under the system warranty.

How to Use ‘Push-In’ Connectors (Figure 2)
This product is outfitted with user friendly ‘Push In’ connectors. Proper use of the connectors
is shown in the diagrams. It is most important that the tubing selected for use with these
connectors be of high quality, exact size and roundness, and with no surface nicks or
scratches. If it is necessary to cut the tubing, use a plastic tubing cutter or sharp razor knife.
Make a clean square cut.
Should a leak occur at a ‘Push-In’ connector, the cause is usually defective tubing.
To Fix: 1. Relieve pressure
4. Reattach tubing
To Attach Tubing
1 Tube O-Ring
2. Release tubing
3. Cut off at least 1/4” from end
5. Confirm connection is leak free

System Start-Up
4) Divert the Water Sample Valve outlet to drain.
Open valve and let water run through the RO
to drain for 10 minutes.
5) Close sample valve.
6) Allow tank to fill (Approximately 60 minutes).
7) Open Water Sample Valve outlet to drain.
Empty tank. Water flowing from tank will
reduce to a fast drip when tank is empty.
8) Allow product water to run to drain for 60
minutes.
9) Close sample valve and allow the tank to fill
(Approximately 60 minutes).
1) Remove the prefilter cartridge from its
packaging. Remove the red cap from the
cartridge and moisten the o-rings with water.
Insert the cartridge into the filter head. Be sure
that the ears on the cartridge line up with the
spaces in the head. Then, turn the cartridge
1/4 turn to the right.
Note: Be sure to install the cartridge into the
proper head by matching the icon on the
cartridge label with the icon on the head.
2) Check that all plumbing connections are
secure.
3) Open the tank shut-off valve and inlet water
valve. Turn on the incoming water supply or
beverage booster pump (if applicable) and
check the system for leaks. If any leaks are
noted, turn off the water supply and/or booster
pump and correct the leak before proceeding.
If a leak is detected at a push-in fitting, refer to
Figure 2.
