Thank you for your purchase of a state of the art Watts Premier Reverse Osmosis (RO) water treatment system. Water
quality concerns are becoming more of a focus for the public. 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 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
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 clean
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 clean water on the other. This is why RO systems produce
both
clean 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 much higher quality drinking water than carbon filtration systems.
Your system is a Four Stage RO which is based upon four separate treatment segments within 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 affects the taste and appearance of your water.
Stage 2 – Carbon filter, recommended change 6 months.
The second stage contains a 5 micron carbon block filter. This helps ensure that chlorine and other materials that
cause bad taste and odor are greatly reduced.
Stage 3- Membrane, recommended change 2-5 years.
Stage three is the heart of the reverse osmosis system, the RO membrane. This semi-permeable membrane will
take out TDS & Sodium and a wide range of contaminants such as Perchlorate, Chromium, Arsenic, Copper, Lead,
as well as Cysts, such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium and much more. Because the process of extracting this high
quality drinking water takes time, your RO water treatment system is equipped with a storage tank.
Stage 4- State of the Art Microbiological Purifier Filter, recommend change 6 months.
The fourth stage consists of a unique microbiological filter, which has been independantly certified to remove all
types of disease causing microorganisms from the water, including bacteria, viruses and protozoan cysts.
System Maintenance
Just because you can not taste it, does not mean that it is not there. Contaminants such as lead, chromium, and arsenic are
undetectable to the taste. Additionally, over time if you do not replace the filter elements, other bad tastes and odors will
apparent in your drinking water.
be
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.premierH2o.com or call our customer service dept. at 1-800-752-5582.

Note: The operating pressure in your home should be tested over a 24 hour period to attain the maximum
pressure. If it is above 85 psi a pressure regulator is recommended and if over 100 psi then a pressure
regulator is required. Should you need a gauge to check your pressure, see page 24 (item no. 261003).
Note: Reverse Osmosis water should not be run through copper tubing as the purity of the water will
leach copper and cause an objectional taste in water and may cause pin holes. Watts supplies specialty
medias that can be used if copper tubing is down stream of the RO. Be sure to follow any state or local
regulations.

Drill a Hole for the Faucet in a Porcelain Sink
Note:
Most sinks are predrilled with 1 ½” or 1 ¼” diameter hole that you can use for your RO faucet.
(if you are already using it for a sprayer or soap dispenser, see step 1).
Porcelain sinks are extremely hard and can crack or chip easily. Use extreme caution when
drilling. Premier accepts no responsibility for damage resulting from the installation of faucet.
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:
Step 5
If mounting faucet to a Stainless Steel Sink you will need a 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.
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 faucet base & faucet spout from their respective
plastic bags. From above the sink, feed the faucet tubing &
toggle bolt down through the 1¼” mounting hole in the sink.
Ensure that the soft rubber gasket is uniformly positioned in
between the base and the top of the sink.
Step
7 Align the faucet base so that the handle is on the right side and
the base is sitting flush on the sink top. Turn the handle down
(towards you) to the “ON” position to reveal the tightening
screw (located where the spout will be inserted). Using a
phillips head screwdriver, turn the screw clockwise until the
toggle bolt secures the faucet base snug onto the sink top,
do not over torque toggle bolt (5lb.in. max)
Step 8
Once the faucet base is securely fastened to the sink top,
insert the faucet spout into the faucet base until it is fully
seated. Turn the handle up (away from you) to the “OFF”
position.
Step 9
Completion of faucet installation (tubing connections) will be
done later in this manual. Refer to the Black Tube Connection
(page 11), Red Tube Connection (page 12), and Blue Tube
Connection (page 12) sections of this manual.
Faucet Battery Installation (For Monitored Faucets Only - P/N:116074)
Step 10
Remove the faucet battery from the plastic bag. Locate the faucet battery compartment drawer on the base of the
faucet. Using a small screwdriver to pry on the notch at the compartment drawer face, slide the drawer out. Insert
the battery into the battery compartment drawer.
NOTE: The + side of the battery faces up. The compartment drawer will not slide in if the battery is installed
upside down.
Once the battery is in place, slide the battery compartment drawer back into the base until it is flush.
When the battery is first installed, both the red and green lights will flash to indicate that both lights are functional.
Thereafter, it will flash green only when the faucet handle is turned to the “ON” position. When your system is ready to
be serviced (approximately six months) you will see the light flash red when the handle is turned to the “ON” position.
Refer to the Six Month Maintenance (page 13) section of this manual for filter replacement.
NOTE: If your water usage is high the red light may activate sooner than six months indicating the need for
filter replacement.
This faucet provides an electronic monitor that will tell you when it is time to replace the filters in your
water treatment device. The light indicator will be green for the life of the filter, turning red once the life
of the filter has been reached. This can occur after six months of use, or sooner for heavy water usage.
To reset the electronic monitor during replacement of filters, simply slide out the battery from the faucet
and reinsert. The battery life is expected to last one year, however, for heavy use the battery may need
to be replaced sooner. For replacement, look for battery number CR2354 (Watts p/n:116082) which is
available at your local battery store or contact Watts Premier at 800-752-7782. You can also order online
at www.premierH2o.com.

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
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 reused.
Page 11
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.
Connect
the Blue Tube from the Faucet to RO Module
Step
27 Insert the blue 3/8” tube from the faucet into the port on the module
marked “FAUCET”. Make sure the tube is pushed in all the way to
the tube stop.
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 to 10 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

Step 7
Turn on incoming water supply. Let tank fill for 2-3 hours. Check for leaks and drain tank
one last time.
Membrane Replacement
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 to Watts Premier for a free test or
a TDS (total dissolved 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.
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.
(25 GPD membrane part #: 110009)
(50 GPD membrane part #: 110019)
Step 4
Step 5
Replace the vessel onto the cap by turning clockwise. Tighten
securely.
Cleaning the Flow Restrictor
Step 6
The flow restrictor plug must be cleaned each time you change the
Membrane. Remove the existing flow restrictor with a screwdriver.
Step 7
Wash with soap and water and rinse. Reinsert the flow restrictor
plug and tighten until the head is flush with module.
Step 8
Follow the Start Up Instructions on page 12.
Page 15
Check Air Pressure in the Tank
Note:
Check air pressure in the tank when you notice a decrease in available
water from the RO system.
Step
Check air pressure when tank is empty of water!
1
It is recommended that you drain the tank of water, and then pump
up the RO tank in order to ensure all water is out of the tank. Air
can be added with a bicycle pump.
Step 2 Once all water in the tank is purged out, check air pressure of the
tank. If you added air to the tank, it will be higher than 5 - 7 psi.
Allow air out until you have 5 - 7 psi in the tank.
Procedure for Extended Non-Use
If the system will not be used for an extended period (more than 2
months), shut the system down and remove the membrane. Place
the membrane in a sealed plastic bag with a few drops of RO water
and place in your refrigerator.
For restart, follow annual sanitization procedures.

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. Although both forms of aresenic are potentially hazardous to
your health, trivalent arsenic is considered more harmful than pentavalent arsenic.
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 up to 98% of 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
according to its recommended maintenance cycle. Specific component identification and
ordering information can be found in the installation/operation manual maintenance section,
by phone at 1-800-752-5582 or online www.premierH2o.com.

This system has been tested according to NSF/ANSI 58 for reduction of the substances listed 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.

YOUR RIGHTS UNDER STATE LAW:
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and some states do not allow the
exclusion or 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.
