CARTRIDGE PLACEMENT
NOTE: Unlike traditional
RO units, the easy access
top-loading design of
this Aquatic Life RO unit
positions the plumbing
below the cartridges. For
this reason, the Mixed
Bed Resin cartridge must
be placed with the gasket
side down. Water will flow
through the cartridge from
the top to bottom.
The reverse osmosis filter incorporates three top-loading canisters into the housing. The cartridges
are to be installed and replaced by removing the blue canister caps on the top of the RO unit. The
canister lids should be removed by hand or with the supplied Canister Lid Wrench.
•
•
Second canister, or center
canister, houses the Solid
Carbon cartridge. The
Solid Carbon cartridge
removes chlorines and other
impurities from the water
supply prior to passing
through the membrane.
•
Final canister, or right
canister, houses a Mixed
Bed Resin cartridge. This
cartridge will help eliminate
any remaining impurities
found in the membranefiltered water.
TIP: Using the Canister
Cap Wrench will ensure
a tight seal and prevent
leaks.
6
First canister from the left
houses the Micron Cartridge
which removes particulate
materials from the source
water. It is recommended
that this pre-filter cartridge
be at least a 5 micron rating
to remove the most amount
of particulate in the water
prior to the carbon filtration.

deluxe unit operation
WARNING: When using
a new Membrane for the
first time, DO NOT use
the first 30 gallons of
filtered water produced
from the RO unit for
aquariums. The Membrane
includes a preservative
that is removed during
initial water contact.
water supply
With all tubing connections in place, turn on the supply water to the RO unit. Check to ensure that
all connections are secure and there are no leaks. If all connections are secure and water tight,
replace the RO unit's cover and replace the four screws that were removed.
flush valve
Flushing the Membrane is critical to obtaining peak performance from the RO unit. Flushing
clears debris build-up on the membrane. The Deluxe RO unit includes a valve that is attached to
the outside (see Tubing Attachment) and is labeled, FLUSH (red). To flush the Membrane, open
the valve for 30 seconds when the RO unit is first supplied with water. This valve allows the water
to bypass the flow restrictor located inside the RO unit housing. After 30 seconds turn the valve
off. Water is now forced to pass through the flow restrictor and pressure will build against the
membrane and filtered water production will resume.
TIP: Store RO filtered
water in a clean plastic
barrel with lid for easy
mixing of saltwater for
marine aquaria.
water storage
Reverse Osmosis filtered water can be stored in covered or sealed containers for future use.

power unit safety instructions
The Power RO unit includes electrical components not found in the Deluxe models.
Many of the parts and installation requirements are similar and will be referenced when setting up the Power RO unit.
WARNING
To guard against injury, basic precautions should be observed, including the following:
A) READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
B) DANGER – To avoid possible electric shock, special care
should be taken since water is employed in the use of
aquarium equipment. For each of the following situations, do
not attempt repairs by yourself; return the appliance to an
authorized service facility for service or discard the appliance:
1) If the appliance falls into the water, DON’T reach for it! First
unplug it and then retrieve it. If electrical components of
the appliance get wet, unplug the appliance immediately.
(Non-immersible equipment only)
2) If the appliance shows any sign of abnormal water leakage,
immediately unplug it from the power source. (Immersible
equipment only)
3) Carefully examine the appliance after installation. It should
not be plugged in if there is water on parts not intended to
be wet.
4) Do not operate any appliance if it has a damaged cord or
plug, or if it is malfunctioning or has been dropped or damaged in any manner.
5) To avoid the possibility of the appliance plug or receptacle
getting wet, position aquarium stand and tank to one side
of a wall-mounted receptacle to prevent water from dripping onto the receptacle or plug. A “drip loop," shown in
the figure below, should be arranged by the user for each
cord connecting an aquarium appliance to a receptacle. The
“drip loop" is that part of the cord below the level of the
receptacle, or the connector if an extension cord is used, to
prevent water traveling along the cord and coming in contact with the receptacle. If the plug or receptacle does get
wet, DON’T unplug the cord. Disconnect the fuse or circuit
breaker that supplies power to the appliance. Then, unplug
and examine for presence of water in the receptacle.
14
C) Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by
or near children.
D) To avoid injury, do not contact moving parts or hot parts such
as heaters, reflectors, lamp bulbs, and the like.
E) Always unplug an appliance from an outlet when not in use,
before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning.
Never yank cord to pull plug from outlet. Grasp the plug and
pull to disconnect.
F) Do not use an appliance for other than intended use. The use
of attachments not recommended or sold by the appliance
manufacturer may cause an unsafe condition.
G) Do not install or store the appliance where it will be exposed to
the weather or to temperatures below freezing.
H) Make sure an appliance mounted on a tank is securely
installed before operating it.
I) Read and observe all the important notices on the appliance.
J) If an extension cord is necessary, a cord with a proper rating
should be used. A cord rated for less amperes or watts than
the appliance rating may overheat. Care should be taken to
arrange the cord so that it will not be tripped over or pulled.
K) For added safety, the appliance must be plugged into a receptacle controlled by a GFCI (ground fault interrupter) circuit
breaker. Device must be properly connected to a grounded
three-prong receptacle.

power unit operation
WARNING: When using
a new Membrane for the
first time, DO NOT use
the first 30 gallons of
filtered water produced
from the RO unit for
aquariums. The Membrane
includes a preservative
that is removed during
initial water contact.
water supply
With all tubing connections in place, turn on the supply water to the RO unit. Check to ensure that
all connections are secure and there are no leaks. If all connections are secure and water tight,
replace the RO unit's cover and replace the four screws that were removed.
flush valve (automatic)
Flushing the Membrane is critical to obtaining peak performance from the RO unit. Flushing clears
debris build-up on the Membrane. The Power RO unit includes an internal automatic valve that
flushes the Membrane for 30 - 45 seconds every time the unit is activated. The internal valve
allows water to bypass the flow restrictor located inside the RO unit housing. After 30-45 seconds,
the valve will force the water to pass through the flow restrictor and build pressure against the
Membrane. Filtered water production will then resume.
LOW PRESSURE SWITCH
The Low Pressure Switch will disconnect power from the RO unit if the source water pressure is
less than 4.35 PSI. This will prolong the life of the Pressure Pump.
NOTE: The water
pressure supplied to the
High Pressure Switch
must be constant. If the
pressure fluctuates, the
Switch may NOT shut
the system down. It is
recommended that a
Positive Valve be used
with the Powered RO unit.
HIGH PRESSURE SWITCH
The High Pressure Switch will disconnect power from the RO unit if the FILTERED water supply line
pressure is greater than 43.5 PSI.
Many RO unit installations connect to storage containers that use float valves or pressure canisters
that create pressure on the FILTERED water line. When the containers are full, a back pressure on
the FILTERED water line is created. The Aquatic Life Powered RO unit will disconnect power to the
Pressure Pump and prevent water flow to the Membrane.
WATER SPILL SENSOR & ALARM
A Water Spill Sensor is located inside the RO unit housing at the base. If water contacts the sensor,
the computer will disconnect power to Pressure Pump, close a valve for the incoming water supply,
sound an audible alarm and the LED display will begin to flash.
19
power unit operation
(continued)
PRESSURE PUMP
The Pressure Pump increases incoming water pressure to 100 PSI. This higher pressure
increases the effectiveness of the RO unit and reduces waste water output. The Pressure
Pump is low voltage and is powered by the included transformer.
AUTOMATIC Shut-off VALVE
An Automatic Shut-off Valve is included with the Power RO unit to eliminate water waste
and possible leak involved problems. The Shut-off Valve will activate if the Low Pressure
Switch, High Pressure Switch or Spill Sensor is activated. The computer controlled valve will
stop the water supply from reaching the RO unit.
COMPUTER CONTROLLER
The Powered RO unit includes a Computer that controls the operation of the RO unit.
The display will indicate several operating modes.
• Washing (orange) - Indicates that the RO Membrane is being flushed by the Automatic
Flush Valve. Flushing should last no more than 45 seconds.
• Full (green) – Indicates that the RO unit has filled the container or the Shut-off Valve
has been activated.
• Lack (orange) – Indicates that the supply water to the RO unit is not sufficient, the
water pressure is under 4.35 PSI and the unit will not operate until the supply water
pressure can be increased.
• Check (red) – Indicates that the unit has operated over six hours or that the Spill
Indicator has activated and the RO unit needs to be serviced before operating.
• Source (blue) – Water production is in process and all components are functioning
properly.
TIP: Store RO filtered
water in a clean plastic
barrel with lid for easy
mixing of saltwater for
marine aquaria.

Glossary of Terms
Drip Loop: To arrange an electrical cord so it hangs down well below the outlet before running
back up again. Any water running down the cord will drip down from the loop, rather than running
uphill to enter the outlet.
Reverse Osmosis: (RO) A separation process that uses pressure to force water through a membrane that retains the solute on one side and allows the pure water to pass to the other side.
Total Dissolved Solids: (TDS) The combined content of all inorganic and organic substances
contained in a liquid which are present in a molecular, ionized or micro-granular suspended form.
The principal application of TDS is in the measure of water quality.
Mixed Bed Resin: Media primarily used in water purification for the polishing process to achieve
demineralized water quality. Mixed Bed, as the name states, consists of strong acid cation exchange
and strong base anion exchange resin that removes total dissolved solids (TDS) from membrane
filtered water.
Positive Valve: A valve that can be manual or automated that creates a solid consistent seal.
Membrane: A filter media that will allow certain molecules or ions to pass through it by diffusion.
The rate of passage depends on the pressure, concentration, and temperature of the molecules or
solutes on either side, as well as the permeability of the membrane to each solute.
Flow Restrictor: Reduces the water flow to a specific volume of water. The Aquatic Life RO units
use a Flow Restrictor on the waste water line that only allows 300cc of water to pass.
Pressure Canister: A storage container that uses an internal bladder to create pressure on
water that is stored inside the canister. A pressure canister is used to store filtered water from the
RO unit and releases the water when a valve is opened. The canister stores water to increase the
volume of water when needed.
