Thank you for your purchase of a state of the art Watts Premier Reverse Osmosis (RO) water treatment system.
Water quality concerns are quickly becoming more of a focus for the public. Lately you may have heard about contaminants
in the drinking water, such as arsenic, chromium, cryptosporidium or Giardia. There may also be some local water issues in
your area such as high levels of lead and copper. This Watts Premier water treatment system has been designed and tested
to provide you with high quality pure water for years to come. The following is a brief overview of the system.
Your Reverse Osmosis System:
Osmosis is the process of water passing through a semi permeable membrane in order to balance the concentration of
contaminants on each side of the membrane. A semi permeable membrane is a barrier that will pass some particles like pure
water, but not other particles like arsenic and lead.
Reverse osmosis uses a semi permeable membrane; however, by applying pressure across the membrane, it concentrates
contaminants (like a strainer) on one side of the membrane, producing crystal clear water on the other. This is why RO
systems produce both pure drinking water and waste water that is flushed from the system. This reverse osmosis system also
utilizes carbon block filtration technology, and can therefore provide a higher quality drinking water than carbon filtration
systems alone.
Your system is a five stage RO which is based upon five separate treatment segments within the one complete water
filtration system. These stages are as follows:
Stage 1 – Sediment filter, recommended change 6 months.
The first stage of your RO system is a five micron sediment filter that traps sediment and other particulate matter like
dirt, silt and rust which affect the taste and appearance of your water.
Stage 2 and 3 – Carbon filters, recommended change 6 months.
The second and third stages each contain a 5 micron carbon block filter. This helps ensure that chlorine and other
materials that cause bad taste and odor are greatly reduced.
Stage 4- Membrane, recommended change 2-5 years.
Stage four is the heart of the reverse osmosis system, the RO membrane. This semi permeable membrane will
effectively take out TDS, Sodium and heavy metals as well as Cysts, such as Giardia and cryptosporidium. Because
the process of making this high quality drinking water takes time, your RO water treatment system is equipped with
a storage tank.
Stage 5- Carbon inline filter, recommend change 6 - 12 months.
The final stage is an inline granular activated carbon (GAC) filter. This filter is used after the water storage tank,
and is used as a final polishing filter.
System Maintenance
Just because you can not taste it, does not mean that it is not there. Contaminants such as lead, chromium and arsenic (to
name a few) are undetectable to the taste. Additionally, over time if you do not replace the filter element, other bad tastes
and odors will be apparent in your drinking water.
This is why it is important to change out your filter at the recommended intervals as indicated in this system manual. When
replacing the filter elements, pay special attention to any cleaning instructions. Should you have any further questions please
refer to our website at www.wattspremier.com or call our customer service dept. at 1-800-752-5582.

Drill a Hole for the Faucet in a Porcelain Sink
Note:
For the Air Gap Faucet (included), a 1 1/4" hole will be required. If using a non air gap faucet,
a 3/4” hole will be required.
Porcelain sink surface material is extremely hard and can crack or chip quite easily. Use
extreme caution when drilling. Watts Premier accepts no responsibility for consequential
damage resulting from the installation of faucet.
Most sinks are predrilled with 1 ½" or 1 ¼" diameter holes (if you are already using it for a
sprayer or soap dispenser, continue to step 1).
Caution:
Professional installation may be required for Granite or Corian surfaces.
Step 1
Determine desired location for the faucet on your sink and place a
piece of masking tape on location where the hole is to be drilled. Mark
the center of the hole on the tape.
Step 2
Using a variable speed drill on the slowest speed, drill a 1/8" pilot
hole through both porcelain and metal casing of sink at the center of the
desired location. (If drill bit gets hot it may cause the porcelain to crack
or chip), use lubricating oil or liquid soap to keep cool.
Step 3
Using a 1 ¼" hole saw, proceed to drill the large hole. Keep drill speed
on the slowest speed and use lubricating oil or liquid soap to keep the
hole saw cool during cutting.
Step 4
Make sure the surroundings of the sink are cooled before mounting the
faucet to the sink after drilling. Remove all sharp edges.
Punch a Hole for the Faucet in a Stainless Steel Sink
Note:
If mounting faucet to a Stainless Steel Sink you will need a ½" & 1 ¼"
Hole Punch. The faucet opening should be centered between the
back splash and the edge of the sink, ideally on the same side as the
vertical drain pipe.
Step 5
Drill a ¼” pilot hole. Use a 1/2” Hole Punch and an adjustable wrench
to punch the hole in the sink. Change to the 1 1/4” Hole Punch to
enlarge the hole.
The faucet can now be installed.

Remove black shank nut and insert the three tubes (air gap faucet)
through the white gasket with the groove on the gasket toward the
faucet base.
Step 8
Drop the three tubes through the 1 1/4" hole in the sink. The white gasket
must be on top side of the sink.
Step 9
From under the sink , insert the white plastic spacer as shown. (A slotted
washer is used if it is a non air gap faucet.)
Step 10
Thread the black shank nut back onto the white threaded stem and
thighten within ¼” of plastic spacer. Check the orientation of the faucet
above the sink and tighten the black plastic washer until white plastic
spacer is snug and faucet stands securely on top of the sink. (For a non
air gap faucet, the blue tube will have to be pushed into the faucet fitting at
the bottom of the faucet. Push the tube all the way into the “tube stop”
inside the fitting.)
Note:
A dripping or gurgling sound may be heard coming from the air gap hole
on the faucet or the drain when the system is running. This is normal and
in compliance with UPC (Universal Plumbing Code).

Step 11
Turn off cold water supply to the kitchen faucet by turning the angle stop valve clockwise.
Step 12
Attach adapta valve as illustrated in the three photos above, choosing the
configuration that fits your plumbing. Please note when attaching the adapta valve to straight
pipe threads use Teflon tape on the threads. The green tube from inlet side of RO
module will be cut to length and attached later in the installation.
.
Caution: Water supply line to the system must be from the cold water supply line. Hot water
will severely damage the system.
Reverse Osmosis Module Mounting
Step 13
Determine best location for the RO module to be mounted to allow
for future system maintenance. The parts bag has 2 self tapping
screws. Using a phillips screwdriver, screw them into the cabinet
wall 6 ” apart and at least 16" from the bottom of the cabinet.
Page 7
Drain Saddle Installation
Drain Saddle fits standard 1 ¼” – 1 ½” drain pipes
Step 14
Gather the pieces of the drain saddle found in parts bag.
1 Black compression nut
1 Semi-circle bracket with fitting
2 Screws
1 Foam washer
2 Nuts for screws
1 Semi-circle bracket
(Fig. A)
(Fig.A)
Step 15 The black square foam gasket with a hole cut out of the middle must
be applied to the inside of the drain saddle. Remove sticky tape
backing and stick to the drain saddle matching holes as shown. Be
sure to remove the hole cut out. (Fig. B)
Step 16 Drill a ¼” hole through the drain pipe at least 1 ½” above the nut of the
P-trap to allow for the removal of the P-trap. Assemble the drain saddle
around the drain pipe. Position the drain saddle over the drilled hole in
pipe. Insert screw driver into the opening of the drain saddle and align
with drilled hole in drain pipe. Using Philips screw driver tighten screws
evenly and securely on both sides of the drain saddle. Over tightening
the screws may break drain saddle. Caution: Hand tighten
compression nut. If necessary you can turn 1/4 turn with a
wrench. Attach black compression nut, but do not tighten at this time.
The black tubing will be installed later.
Tank Elbow Installation
Step 17 Wrap (7 to 12 turns) Teflon tape clockwise around the male pipe
threads (MPT) on the Stainless Steel fitting on top of the tank.
Note:
Do not let the tape cover the opening.
Step 18 Thread the plastic elbow (supplied in the parts bag) onto the stainless
steel connection on the top of tank. Tighten using an adjustable
wrench. Do not over tighten as plastic could crack.
Caution: Do not teflon tape the compression fitting threads as this
may cause leaks.
Page 8
(Fig. B)
Green Tube Connection
Step 19
Measure the green tube coming from the port marked TAP on the Reverse Osmosis
Module over to the adapta valve attached to the Angle Stop Valve. Leaving a gentle curve in
the tubing so the tube does not kink. Cut to desired length using a sharp knife.
Step 20
Remove a brass nut, plastic delrin sleeve and brass insert from
the parts bag. Slide the nut on the tube first, then the Delrin
sleeve (Small taper end of Delrin sleeve must point to the end of
tube). Then insert the brass Insert into the end of the tube.
Step 21
Insert the green tube into the ¼” opening on adapta valve until it
stops. Slide nut and sleeve down and thread onto the male pipe
threads. Hand tighten brass nut, add one full turn with a ½” wrench
for secure fit.
Connect Blue Tube from TANK port on RO Module to the Tank
Step 22
Position tank in desired location. Stand it upright or lay it on its
side (using the black plastic stand). Measure the blue tube from
the RO module port marked TANK over to the tank and cut it to
desired length.
Step 23
Insert the blue 3/8” tube into the compression nut as far as it
will go. Tighten the compression nut securely with a wrench.
Page 9
3/8” Black Tube Connection
Note:
The tubing must be as SHORT and STRAIGHT as possible to the drain saddle, making a
downward slope from module to drain saddle to allow for proper drainage.
Step 24
Measure the black tube from faucet to the black drain
saddle and make a straight cut with a sharp knife
though tube.
Step 25
Remove black plastic nut from drain saddle. Slip black tube
through black nut. Insert black tube into the opening in the
drain saddle and hand tighten the black nut, and add 1/4 turn
with a wrench.
Note:
This is a gravity fed line, if there is any bend or dip in the tube
the rinse water will not flow into the drain properly. Water will
back up and come out the air gap hole in the back of the
faucet base.
How to use the quick connect fittings on the RO Module
To make a connection, the tube is simply pushed into the fitting. Place a piece of tape 1/2” from end of tube
to indicate how far the tube should be inserted. The unique patented John Guest® locking system holds
the tube firmly in place without deforming it or restricting flow.
Cut the tube square. It is essential that the outside
diameter be free of score marks and that burrs and
sharp edges be removed before inserting into fitting.
Fitting grips before it seals. Ensure tube is pushed into
the tube stop.
Push the tube into the fitting, to the tube stop. The
collet (gripper) has stainless steel teeth which hold the
tube firmly in position while the O-ring provides a
permanent leak proof seal.
Pull on the tube to check that it is secure. It is a good
practice to test the system prior to leaving site and /or
before use.
To disconnect, ensure the system is depressurized
before removing the tube. Push in collect squarely
against face of fitting. With the collect held in this
position, the tube can be removed. The fitting can then
be re-used.
Page 10
Connect the Red Tube from Faucet to RO Module
Step 26
Insert the red 1/4” tube from the faucet into the port on the
module marked DRAIN. Make sure the tube is pushed in all the
way to the tube stop.
Final Filter Installation
Step 27
The Final Filter and 2 white plastic connectors are in the parts
bag.
Step 28
Remove the blue caps from the final filter.
Step 29
Thread the smaller (1/4”) white plastic connector into the end of the
Final Filter and tighten , (flow arrow on filter points to the 1/4”
connector).
Step 30
Thread the larger (3/8”) white plastic connector into the other end of
the final filter.
Step 31
Insert the 1/4” blue tube attached to the faucet into the outlet of the
filter. The flow arrow should be pointing toward the faucet. Insert
the 3/8” blue tube attached to the module into the 3/8” inlet white
connector on the in-line Final Filter. Tighten the white compression
nuts with an adjustable wrench.
Page 11
Start up Instructions
Step 1
Turn on the incoming cold water at the angle stop valve. Open the needle valve on the brass
Adapta Valve by turning counter clockwise. Check the system for leaks and tighten any fitting
as necessary. (Check frequently over the next 24 hours to ensure no leaks are present).
Step 2
Open the RO faucet and leave it open until water begins to trickle out, (it will come out slowly).
Step 3
After water trickles out of the faucet, close RO faucet so the tank will fill with water. The tank
will take 6 to10 hours at first to fill completely depending on the size of the membrane, local
water temperature and pressure.
Step 4
After the Tank has filled, open the RO Faucet to flush the Tank completely to remove carbon
particles from final filter. Repeat this step two more times. The fourth tank can be used for
drinking. Note: The flushing of the tank 3 times is only necessary during initial installation. This
should take about a day to complete.
Step 5
If system is connected to an Ice Maker, turn the Ice Maker off until flushing is complete and the
tank has refilled. The system should have an in-line valve installed before the Ice Maker so it
can be closed to prevent water flowing to the Ice Maker. Your tank must be allowed to fill up in
order for the unit to shut off. (If you are installing an Ice Maker Kit, tee off after the final filter).
Step 6
Register warranty by mail, phone, or internet. Watts Premier uses this information only to
provide a filter change reminder service. Pre-filters should be changed every six months. You
may register your warranty via our website at www.wattspremier.com or call 1-800-752-5582
(within USA only).
Step 7
Your reverse osmosis system contains replaceable treatment components that are critical for
effective contaminant reduction. Periodic inspection and following proper system
maintenance is critical for continued performance.
Page 12
6 Month System Maintenance
Watts Premier sells a filter change kit which includes pre-filters, orings, a final filter, connectors, and a
wrench. Call 1-800-752-5582 or buy online at www.wattspremier.com.
√ One 10” sediment filter (part no. 104017)
√ Two 10” carbon filters (part no. 101009)
√ Bucket to catch water from filter housings.
Step 1
Turn off incoming water supply to the RO by turning the needle valve on
the adapta valve clockwise. (The green tube is connected to the adapta
valve.)
Step 2
Open RO Faucet to allow water to drain from the tank until completely
empty. Water can be saved in a container for drinking or to rinse
system parts.
Step 3
Let system sit for 10 – 15 minutes after tank is empty to depressurize
before attempting to remove filter housings.
Step 4
For more leverage, leave RO module attached to wall of cabinet. If you
are unable to access the module you may remove it to change filters.
Starting with the closest housing, remove and empty water, then discard
filters. Continue on to the 2nd and/or 3rd Bowls.
Step 5
Clean all filter housings (bowls) with a mild soap solution and rinse with
water. Check O-rings and lubricate with water soluble lubricant. KY Jelly® ,
Canola oil and other water based lubricants can be used, petroleum
based lubricants (such as Vaseline®) must not be used.
Step 6
The sediment filter has a cloth like appearance. It should be in the 1st
housing on the side with tubing connections.
Caution: Check O-rings to make sure they are still in place.
Step 7
Insert the Carbon Block filter (filter has a gasket on each end) into the
middle housing.
Step 8
Repeat this step for 3rd housing .
Note:
If also doing the annual maintenance at this time continue to Step 2
on page 14.
Step 9
Turn water on to the unit by turning the needle valve on the adapta valve
counter clock wise.
Step 10
Open RO faucet and leave open unitl water begins to trickle out. Close
RO faucet to allow tank to fill with water.
Page 13
Annual Maintenance
Step 1
Perform 6 month system maintenance. (previous section)
Note:
Be sure water is turned off before going to step 2.
Step 2
The Final Filter (should be replaced annually. Remove white nuts at both ends of the filter to
replace the old final filter. Replace with new filter and connectors (as shown on page 10). The
white nuts can be re- used so they do not have to be removed from the tubes.
Note:
Flow arrow on final filter must be pointing in the direction of the faucet.
Step 4
Annual sanitizing of unit is recommended to prevent bacteria growth.
Remove the Blue Tube from the module marked TANK.
Step 5
Using a clean eye dropper insert ½ teaspoon of 3% hydrogen
peroxide or common household bleach into the blue tube. This will
flow into the tank once water is turned back on to unit. Reattach the
blue tube to the port marked TANK on the module. Then follow step
3 and 4 on page 12 in the start up procedure .
Membrane Maintenance
Membranes have a life expectancy of between 2 and 5 years, depending on the incoming water
conditions and the amount of use of the RO system.
Normally, a membrane would be replaced during a semiannual or annual filter change. However, if at any
time you notice a reduction in water production or an unpleasant taste in the reverse osmosis water, it
could be time to replace the membrane. A water sample may be sent Watts Premier for a free test or a
TDS (total desolved solids) monitor can be purchased from Watts Premier to test the incoming and
reverse osmosis water at home.
To send a water sample, using 2 clean containers put ½ cup of tap water in one container and ½ cup of
reverse osmosis water in 2nd clean container. Clearly mark each container. Watts Premier will test the
water and call or mail you the results.
Step 1
Turn off the cold water supply and open the RO faucet to drain the
tank.
Step 2
Remove the membrane vessel on top of the unit by turning the
vessel counter clockwise to loosen.
Page 14
Step 3
Pull firmly on the membrane to remove from the housing and
discard.
Step 4
Unwrap new membrane and lubricate the o-rings with water soluble
lubrication such as KY Jelly ® before inserting into housing. Insert
end with the two black O-rings into the cap. Twist the membrane as
you push firmly into the cap.
Step 5
Replace the vessel onto the cap by turning clockwise. Tighten
securely.
Changing the Flow Restrictor
Step 6
The flow restrictor plug (part no. 164015) must be replaced each
time you change the Membrane (part no.110009.) Remove the
existing flow restrictor with a screwdriver and discard.
Step 7
Insert the new flow restrictor plug
and tighten.
Step 8
Follow the Start Up Instructions on page 11.
Page 15
Checking Air Pressure in the Tank
Note:
Check air pressure when tank is empty.
Step 1
Use a digital air gauge to check the air pressure in the tank. You
should always have between 5 -7 psi on an empty tank. If you have
more than 7 psi release air and recheck. If you have less than 5 psi,
add air. Air can be added with a bicycle pump.
Your unit comes with a stand for your storage tank to sit on if you
need to turn the unit on its side. This allows air flow under the tank
keeping moisture and standing water from rusting out the bottom of
your tank which voids your warranty.

Arsenic Fact Sheet
Arsenic (As) is a naturally occurring contaminant found in many ground waters. Arsenic
in water has no color, taste or odor. It must be measured by an arsenic test kit or lab
test. Public water utilities must have their water tested for arsenic. You can obtain the
results from your water utility contained with in your consumer confidence report. If you
have your own well, you will need to have the water evaluated. The local health department
or the state environmental health agency can provide a list of test kits or certified labs.
There are two forms of arsenic: pentavalent arsenic (also called As (V), As (+5))and
trivalent arsenic (also called As (III), As (+3)). In well water, arsenic may be pentavalent,
trivalent, or a combination of both.
RO systems are very effective at removing pentavalent arsenic. A free chlorine residual
will rapidly convert trivalent arsenic to pentavalent arsenic. Other water treatment
chemicals such as ozone and potassium permanganate will also change trivalent
arsenic to pentavalent arsenic. A combined chlorine residual (also called chloramine)
may not convert all the trivalent arsenic. If you get your water from a public water utility,
contact the utility to find out if free chlorine or combined chlorine is used in the water
system.
This Watts Premier reverse osmosis system is designed to remove pentavalent arsenic.
It will not convert trivalent arsenic to pentavalent arsenic. Under laboratory standard
testing conditions, this system reduced 0.30 mg/L (ppm) pentavalent arsenic to under
0.010 mg/L (ppm) (the USEPA standard for drinking water). Actual performance of the
system may vary depending on specific water quality conditions at the consumer’s
installation.
The RO component of this Watts Premier reverse osmosis system must be maintained

This system has been tested according to NSF/ANSI 58 for reduction of the substances below. The concentration of the indicated substances
in water entering the system was reduced to a concentration less than or equal to the permissible limit for water leaving the system as specified
in NSF/ANSI 58. This system has been tested for the treatment of water containing pentavalent arsenic (also known as As (V), As (+5), or
arsenate) at concentrations of 0.30 mg/L or less. This system reduces pentavalent arsenic, but may not remove other forms of arsenic. This
system is to be used on water supplies containing a detectable free chlorine residual at the system inlet or on water supplies that have been
demonstrated to contain only pentavalent arsenic. Treatment with chloramine (combined chlorine) is not sufficient to ensure complete
conversion of trivalent arsenic to pentavalent arsenic. Please see the Arsenic Facts section of the Performance Data Sheet for further
information.

Depending on water chemistry, water temperature, and water pressure Watts Premier’s R.O. Systems production and performance will vary.
Efficiency rating means the percentage of the influent water to the system that is available to the user as reverse osmosis treated water under
operating conditions that approximate typical daily usage. Recovery rating means the percentage of the influent water to the membrane portion of
the system that is available to the user as reverse osmosis treated water when the system is operated without a storage tank or when the storage
tank is bypassed. There is an average of 4 gallons of reject water for every 1 gallon of product water produced.

What your Warranty Covers:
If any part of your WATTS PREMIER Reverse Osmosis System is defective in workmanship (excluding replaceable filters and
membranes), return unit after obtaining a return authorization (see below), less tank, within 3 year of original retail
purchase, WATTS PREMIER will repair or, at WATTS PREMIER’S option, replace the system at no charge.

instructions), from abuse, misuse, misapplication, improper maintenance, neglect, alteration, accidents, casualties, fire, flood,
freezing, environmental factors, water pressure spikes or other such acts of God.
This warranty will be void if defects occur due to failure to observe the following conditions:
1. The Reverse Osmosis System must be hooked up to a potable municipal or well cold water supply.
2. The hardness of the water should not exceed 10 grains per gallon, or 170 ppm.
3. Maximum incoming iron must be less than 0.2 ppm.

5. The incoming water pressure must be between 40 and 100 pounds per square inch.
6. Incoming water to the RO cannot exceed 105 degrees F (40 degrees C.)
7. Incoming TDS/Total Dissolved Solids not to exceed 1800 ppm.
8. Do not use with water that is micro-biologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection
before or after the system.
This warranty does not cover any equipment that is relocated from the site of its original installation.
This warranty does not cover any equipment that is installed or used outside the United States of America and Canada.
LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS:
WATTS PREMIER WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE OF
MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. PREMIER WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY
INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING TRAVEL EXPENSE, TELEPHONE CHARGES, LOSS OF REVENUE,
LOSS OF TIME, INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OF USE OF THE EQUIPMENT, AND DAMAGE CAUSED BY THIS EQUIPMENT AND

REGARDING THIS EQUIPMENT.
OTHER CONDITIONS:

limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply. This warranty gives
you specific legal rights, and you may have other legal rights which vary from state to state.
