- SAFETY GUIDES • Read all steps, guides
and rules carefully
before
installing
and using your reverse
osmosis
system.
Follow all steps exactly to correctly
install. Reading
this manual will also help you to get all the benefits
from the reverse osmosis system.
•
Do not attempt to use this product to make safe
drinking water from non-potable
water sources.Do
not use the system on microbiologically
unsafe water, or water of unknown
quality.
•
Check with your local public works department
for plumbing
and sanitation
codes. You must follow their guides as you install the system. Follow
your local codes if they differ with guides in this
manual.
•
The reverse osmosis system works on water pressures of 40 psi (minimum)
to 125 psi (maximum).
If
your house water pressure
is over the maximum,
install a pressure
reducing
valve in the water supply
pipe to the reverse osmosis system.
•
Do not install the reverse osmosis
system outside, or in extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Temperature of the water supply to the reverse osmosis system must be between
40°F and 100°F. Do not install
on hot water.
•
Read the other limits (pH, hardness,
etc.) in the
specifications
and be sure your water supply
conforms. Also see "Water Supply"
on page 3.
•
The reverse osmosis membrane
contains
a preservative
for storage and shipment.
Be sure to purge
as instructed
on page 9 before using product
water.

To conserve water, the drinking water system has an
automatic
shutoff system. When the storage tank has
filled to capacity,
and the drinking
water faucet is
closed, pressure
closes the shutoff to stop flow into
the RO. Pressure
in the storage tank is about half of
the water supply
pressure.
After drinking
water is
used, and pressure
in the system drops, the shutoff
opens to allow water flow again.

cartridge
with activated
carbon in its composition.
The cartridge (10 micron) removes sand, silt, dirt, other sediments, and up to the ppm of chlorine
shown in the

from the feed water. Chlorine
will destroy the RO membrane.
Filtered,

RO MEMBRANE
CARTRIDGE
The life of the RO membrane
cartridge
depends
mostly on the pH of the supply water to the RO system (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 I year. HoweveT;
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.
If the water has sediments
only, with no chlorine, you
may notice a slower making
of product
water as the
prefilter collects the sediments.
When this occurs, replace the prefilter
cartridge.
Also replace the postfilter
cartridge.
It's time to replace the RO 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
RO membrane.
To be sure it is the RO cartridge,
replace the prefilter
and postfilter
cartridges
first.
