Step 2 - Install RO Drain Under Sink
Double Trap
INTRODUCTION
Single trap
A suitable drain point is needed for the reject water from
the Reverse Osmosis Filter. You have two options to
choose from:
• Install the Drain Adapter included with your unit
See Fig 6, Fig. 7, and Fig. 8. This is used in under the
sink installations. The drain adapter kit is installed onto
your sink drain pipe above the P-trap. See Fig. 6.
• Use another existing drain in your home
(See Fig 9, Fig. 10) This is usually used in remote
location type installations. The drain tube from the
Reverse Osmosis Filter runs directly to an open drain.
See Fig. 9 & 10.

Sink Tailpiece
(Under sink Installation)
In an under the sink installation, you normally use the
(P-trap) drain adapter. A drain adapter kit is included in
your package. Review the drain adapter kit parts in Fig. 7.
The drain adapter is always installed in the sink drain
pipe, above or ahead of the P- trap. See Fig. 6 & 8. Be
sure to comply with your local plumbing codes. The drain
adapter fits 1-1/2" sink drain pipes. Other drain pipe fittings, purchased locally, may be needed in addition to the
adapter.
1. Slowly disassemble the sink drain pipe between the
sink P-trap and the sink tailpiece. See Fig. 6 & 8.
2. Clean the sink tailpiece to assure a leak-tight fit.
3. Install drain adapter directly onto the sink tailpiece
using the ferrule and nut. Snug the nut, but do not
tighten. See Fig. 7.
4. Assemble the drain tubing connector to the drain
adapter using the ferrule and nut. Snug the nut, but do
not tighten. See Fig. 7.
NOTE: Locate so drain tubing from the Reverse
Osmosis faucet will make a straight run to the
adapter, without dips, loops, low spots or kinks.
See Fig. 8.
5. Turn the connector to about 45° (10:00 or 2:00 position). See Fig. 7. Tighten the nut securely.
6. Assemble the P-trap to the drain adapter, and other
drain pipe fittings as required to complete the drain
run. See Fig. 6.
Note: If needed, you can cut the unthreaded end of
the adapter to make it fit. Do not cut too short or
the adapter will not make a leak-tight seal with the
connecting fitting.
7. Tighten all connections, but do not over tighten plastic
connections.

To install a remote drain point, complete the
following steps:
1. Locate the 1/4” red tubing on the Reverse Osmosis
filter assembly. See Fig. 9.
2. Determine if this length is long enough to reach the
drain point.
3. If not, disconnect the 1/4” red tubing and replace with
an adequate length of tubing to reach the drain point.
Refer to Step 5 later in the manual on how to disconnect and connect tubing.
Note: A flow control insert is located in the red
tube. Refer to Fig 27. This insert must be saved
and placed in the new length of tubing.
4. Run the tubing to the drain point and secure at the
end with a bracket (purchased locally). See Fig. 10.
Provide a 1-1/2” air gap between the end of the tube
and the drain. See Fig. 10.
INSTALL A REMOTE DRAIN POINT
AND AIR GAP (Remote Location)
You can also run the drain tubing to an existing drain in
the house. A floor drain, laundry tub, standpipe, sump,
etc. are suitable drain points. See Fig. 10. This type of
drain is the preferred over the p- trap drain adapter.
Check your local codes. Longer lengths of tubing (see
parts list in back of manual) may be needed.
Always be sure to provide an air gap between the end of
the hose and the drain point. This will prevent water from
backing up into the system. Airgaps are required code in
most areas.

Step 5: Install RO Faucet
SELECT LOCATION OF REVERSE OSMOSIS
FAUCET MOUNTING HOLE
You will need to select the location of the Reverse
Osmosis Faucet. You have three options to choose from:
• Use the existing sink top hole for the spray hose or
soap dispenser (Must be 1-3/8” in diameter)
• Drill a new hole in the sink
• Drill a new hole in the countertop next to the sink
1. Determine where you are going to install your Reverse
Osmosis Faucet.
2. Check to ensure the Reverse Osmosis faucet will mount
flat against the mounting surface.
3. Visually review the routing of the tubes from the
Reverse Osmosis filter assembly to the faucet. Check to
ensure there is adequate tube routing space between
the faucet and filter assembly.
3. If drilling is needed, drill a 1-3/8" diameter hole in the
mounting surface.
IMPORTANT: Drilling holes into countertops and
sinks should only be performed by a qualified
installer who is certified for drilling such materials.
Drilling of surfaces made of stone or solid surface
materials such as granite, marble, Coriant or other
plastic resin products or sinks made of porcelain
and stainless steel may cause permanent, irreparable damage to the sink or countertop surface.

FIG. 13
Step 5: Install RO Faucet
INSTALL REVERSE OSMOSIS FAUCET
1. Locate and organize your RO faucet install parts. Refer to
Fig. 14.
2. Mount faucet base to sink hole until the faucet base is
square against the sink surface. The rubber gasket should
be between the sink surface and the faucet base.
3. Tighten the toggle bolts until the base is firmly mounted to
the sink surface. Do not overtighten.
4. Locate the faucet base. (The black and blue tubes are
already connected to the faucet.) Insert these tubes into
the sink hole until approximately one foot of tube length
and the faucet base are left above the counter
surface. Do not bend or kink the tubes in the process.
See Fig. 13 and 22.
5. Locate the 1/4" red tubing. One end is connected to the
RO Filter assembly. See Fig 22. Locate the loose end.
A. Route red tube through countertop to faucet.
B. Cut the loose end of the red tube square and to length.
See Fig. 22.
Note: Tubing lengths should allow for the removal of the
assembly from the hanger washers for servicing. If tubing lengths are shortened for neater appearance, it may
be necessary to keep the assembly on the hanger washers for service.
C. Insert all the way onto the 1/4" faucet barb fitting on
faucet. See Fig. 15.
D. Pull on the tubing to be sure it is held firmly in the fitting.
NOTE: If you ran the red reverse osmosis drain tubing
directly to a remote drain point, disregard step 3 and
refer to instructions on page 9.

Step 6 - Connect Tubes
Push In Fitting
HOW TO CUT AND CONNECT THE TUBES
Tube
Your Reverse Osmosis Water System includes push-in fittings for quick tubing connection. Review the following
instructions before connecting the tubes in the next step.
Cut tubes to length
1. Use a sharp cutter or knife to cut the end of tubing.
Always cut the tubing square. See Fig. 17.
2. Inspect the end (about 1") of the tubing to be sure
there are no nicks, scratches or other rough spots. If
needed, cut the tubing again. See Fig. 17.
Note: Tubing lengths should allow for the removal
of the assembly from the hanger washers for servicing. If tubing lengths are shortened for neater
appearance, it may be necessary to keep the
assembly on the hanger washers for service.
Cut tubing square with end of tubing round,
smooth, with no cuts, nicks or flat spots.
Tube Correctly Cut
Collet
Connect tubes
1. Push tubing through collet, until it engages the o-ring.
See Fig. 18. Continue pushing until the tube bottoms
out against the back of the fitting. See Fig. 19. A common mistake is to stop pushing when the tube engages
the o-ring. This will lead to future leaks. When a 1/4”
tube is fully engaged, 11/16” of the tube has entered
the fitting. When a 3/8” tube is fully engaged, 3/4” of
the tube has entered the fitting. See Fig. 18 & 19.
2. If using tubing other than tubing supplied with the system, be sure it is of high quality, exact size and roundness with a smooth surface.
Disconnect Tubes
1. Push the collet inward with a finger tip. See Fig.21.
2. Continue holding collet inward while pulling the tubing
out. See Fig. 21.

SANITIZE THE SYSTEM
Sanitizing is recommended immediately after installation of the Reverse Osmosis system. It’s also recommended after servicing inner parts. It is important that
the person installing or servicing the system have
clean hands while handling inner parts of the system.
Complete the following steps to sanitize the system.
See Fig. 23.
1. Turn off the water supply to the Reverse Osmosis
system.
2. Open the Reverse Osmosis faucet.
3. Locate an eyedropper included in package and
common household bleach (5.25%).
4. Add 3 ml. of bleach into open end of yellow tank
tubing. Handle bleach according to bleach manufacturer’s recommendations. See Fig. 23.
5. Connect yellow tank tubing to tank connector. See
Fig. 12 and 23.
6. Sanitizing the system will be completed during the
pressure test and purging steps on the following
page.
Note: The bleach must be removed from the
system before drinking the water. See purging
instructions on the next page.

To pressure test the system, complete the following steps.
1. Open the water supply valve to the Reverse Osmosis
System. See Fig. 24.
2. Open the main water supply valve and several house
faucets. This will purge air from the house plumbing
and system. Close faucets when water runs smooth.
See Fig. 24.
3. Pressure will start to build in the RO system in about 2
hours Carefully check all fittings and connections as
the system builds pressure. Check for water leaks. Fix
leaks if any are found. If problems exist, refer to the
troubleshooting chart or call the toll free number. (See
number below)
Note: When the system is first pressurized, water
may ''spurt'' from the faucet air gap hole until air is
expelled from the RO system.

Please review the following operating features before
using your Reverse Osmosis System:
FIG. 24
You will not have filtered water immediately. It may
take 1-3 hours to completely fill the storage tank and
create maximum flow from the Reverse Osmosis
faucet.
Water Pressure from the Reverse Osmosis faucet will be
less than your standard faucet due to the high level of filtration performed by the system.
Water will run to the drain while the Reverse Osmosis
system is producing purified water, even if you are not
drawing water from the Reverse Osmosis faucet. You
may hear a small quantity of water going to the drain
for a couple of hours. Water going to the drain will
automatically shut off when the storage tank is full.
PURGING THE SYSTEM
To purge the system, complete the following steps.
1. Open the Reverse Osmosis Faucet and let water
through the system for a 24 hour period.
Note: Water flow will be a slow trickle at this time.
2. Close the Reverse Osmosis faucet after the 24 hour
purging period is complete.
3. When the purging is finished, your Reverse Osmosis
system is ready for use.

How Your RO Water System Works
HOW YOUR REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM
WORKS
Introduction: Your Reverse Osmosis (RO) Drinking
Water System uses your household water pressure to
force water through three filters. Minerals and impurities are filtered out. Delicious tasting drinking water
goes to the storage tank-ready for your use. Minerals
and impurities are sent down the drain. The following
paragraphs will explain in detail how your Reverse
Osmosis Drinking Water System works.
Prefilter: Water from the cold supply pipe enters the
prefilter. See Fig. 25. The prefilter has a replaceable
sediment cartridge with activated carbon in its composition. The cartridge removes taste, odor, sand, silt,
dirt, other sediments, and up to the amount of chlorine
shown in the specifications.
Reverse Osmosis Cartridge: Filtered, chlorine-free
water flows from the prefilter, to the Reverse Osmosis
membrane cartridge. See Fig. 25. The Reverse
Osmosis cartridge is a tightly wound special membrane. The membrane removes the dissolved solids
and organic matter. High quality product water (about
one ounce per minute) exits the Reverse Osmosis cartridge. The product water flows to the storage tank,
postfilter or Reverse Osmosis faucet. See Fig. 25.
Reject water, with the dissolved solids and organic
matter, is routed to the drain. See Fig. 25.
Storage Tank: The storage tank holds up to 2.3 gallons of product water. See Fig. 25. A diaphragm inside
the tank holds water pressurized to about 30 psi when
the tank is full. This provides fast flow to the Reverse
Osmosis faucet. When the tank is empty of water, it is
pressurized to 5 - 7 psi.
Reverse Osmosis Faucet: The sink or countertop
faucet has a hand operated knob to access drinking
water. See Fig. 25. An air-gap is built into the faucet
drain water connection to comply with plumbing codes.
See Fig. 25.
Faucet Electronics: Inside the faucet base is a battery
operated 6 month timer. See Fig. 14.
An amber LED indicator is also located in the front of
the faucet base. This LED will flash continuously after
6 months have passed. This indicates that it is time to
replace the battery, prefilters and postfilters.
Shutoff Assembly: The unit has an automatic shutoff
system to conserve water. When the storage tank has
filled to capacity, and the drinking water faucet is closed,
pressure closes the shutoff to stop flow to the drain.
After enough drinking water is used, pressure in the
system drops, and the shutoff opens to allow the tank to
be refilled. See Fig. 25.
Check Valve: A check valve is located in the Reverse
Osmosis manifold, above the center sump. The check
valve prevents a backward flow of product water from
the storage tank to drain. A backward flow could
damage the Reverse Osmosis Membrane. See Fig. 25.
Flow Control: Water flow to the drain is restricted by
the flow control. It maintains the desired flow rate to
obtain the highest quality drinking water. The flow control is located in the end of the 1/4" red drain tubing, at
the Reverse Osmosis manifold drain port. See Fig. 25.
Postfilter: Before going to the Reverse Osmosis
faucet, product water goes through the postfilter. See
Fig. 25. The postfilter is an activated carbon type filter.
Any remaining tastes and odors are removed from the
product water. Taste-free, odor-free, clean, high quality
drinking water is available at the faucet.

Maintenance
PREFILTER/POSTFILTER MAINTENANCE
NOTE: It is recommended to replace the battery,
prefilter and postfilter cartridges at least every 6
months of product water use. Replace more often if
they begin to plug with sediments.
The prefilter and postfilter are replaceable sediment
cartridges with activated carbon in its composition. See
Fig. 26. You must periodically replace the prefilter and
postfilter cartridge. This will protect the RO membrane
from being destroyed by chlorine. It will also prevent
the filters from plugging with sediments.
You may notice a slower output of product water as the
prefilter and postfilters build up with sediments.
Replace the prefilter and postfilter cartridges when this
occurs. You should replace the battery whenever you
replace the cartridges.
RO MEMBRANE CARTRIDGE MAINTENANCE
The Reverse Osmosis cartridge is a tightly wound special membrane. See Fig. 26.The membrane removes
the dissolved solids and organic matter. The life of the
Reverse Osmosis membrane cartridge depends mostly
on the pH of the supply water. (see specifications).
Cartridge life is shorter with higher pH. For example, if
supply water pH is from 6.8 to 7.7, the cartridge may
last for well over one year. However, cartridge life may
be as short as 6 months if the pH is as high as 8.5 to
10. Higher pH weakens the cartridge membrane and
causes pin-hole leaks. It's time to replace the Reverse
Osmosis cartridge when the production rate and/or
quality of product water drops. Product water may
begin to taste different or bad, indicating solids and
organics are passing through the Reverse Osmosis
membrane. See Reverse Osmosis cartridge replacement.
