1. Clear away a workspace under the sink near the location of the Tap Master.
2. Turn off the water feeding the Tap Master, by closing the ball valve located on the water
line, or by closing angle-stop feed water valve clockwise. To close the angle-stop, turn
clockwise. If present, the angle-stop will be located on the wall under the kitchen sink in
close proximity to the Tap Master. Either method will work. Close the valve leading to the
Installing The Tap Master™ Reverse Osmosis System under the sink
1a. Install easy adapter with ball valve for main water line - Always wear protective
eyewear while under sink. Locate the cold angle-stop (the main water lines under the sink –
one hot water, one cold water), and turn clock-wise to shut off the water. See Fig. 4. Locate
½” fitting, typically found on the line out of the angle-stop. See Fig.6. Easy adapter with ball
valve may be fitted to either angle-stop, or line out - as shown in Fig. 6. If angle-stop is
damaged and cannot be shut off, or does not exist, use piercing valve (see piercing valve
instructions below). Connect easy adapter with ball valve to cold ½” female line. See Fig. 6.
Use Teflon tape on ALL metal male threads. Check for water pressure & leaks on ball valve.
Turn ON water by rotating angle-stop counter clockwise. Close ball valve, by turning the
handle perpendicular to the ball valve body. (Valve is open in Fig. 6) Have a bowl or cup
nearby to catch water. Dry all parts, check for leaks, and snugness.
NOTE: Use piercing valve OR easy adapter with ball valve, but not both.
1b. Install piercing valve for main water - Clamp piercing valve to soft cold copper line
(see Fig. 5 & Fig. 7) by tightening screw snugly around copper line and piercing valve insert.
Lightly wiggle and tighten piercing valve to ensure snugness. NOTE: Piercing valve
operates by puncturing a small hole in the copper line. Once the hole is made, the
piercing valve must remain in place or the copper line must be replaced to avoid
leaks. Place brass nut with collar over tubing marked “LINE IN” then insert brass insert into
tubing end. Apply Teflon tape to piercing valve ¼” threaded fitting. Connect brass nut onto
piercing valve ¼” threaded fitting and tighten snugly. Screw down the red “T” handle on top of
the piercing valve until copper line is punctured, then unscrew until water begins to flow at a
fast rate. Close attached shut-off valve, by turning blue handle perpendicular to the valve
body. Have a bowl or cup nearby to catch water. Dry all parts, check for leaks, and snugness.

3. Close the reserve tank valve located on top of the reserve tank. When closed the blue
handle will perpendicular to the water line.
4. Depressurize the system. Flip up the handle on the RO sink spigot so that it locks into
place, and dispenses water until it no longer flows. If you have successfully shut off the
water this should occur within a few seconds. If water still continues to flow, repeat steps 2
& 3. The system is now depressurized; continue to leave to RO sink spigot handle in the
open position.
5. Slowly and gently pull the Tap Master off of its mounting clips from the bottom up. Lay it
on a towel.
6. Remove the tube from the membrane-housing cap “push-pull” fitting – to do this push
down the seal ring to the fitting body with the thumb and forefinger while simultaneously
pulling on the tubing. Some mild resistance to pulling out the tubing is normal. Removing
the tubing will be impossible without first fully depressurized the Tap Master as described
in step 4.
7. Unscrew membrane-housing cap and remove old membrane using pliers on the top white
membrane nipple. There is a rubber brine seal near the top of the membrane. As you are
removing the old membrane, note which end the rubber brine seal is on so you can insert
the new membrane in the same way. Discard old membrane.
8. Wipe out membrane housing with clean, dry cloth. Allow to air dry completely.
9. Remove new membrane from packaging. Grasp the replacement membrane by the top
white membrane nipple only. DO NOT TOUCH ANY OTHER PART OF THE MEMBRANE. Insert
2. Mount the Tap Master™ - Identify location for installing mounting clips for the Tap
membrane into membrane housing until white nipple is flush with the membrane-housing
Master™ RO unit. Location should allow room for the reserve tank, for connecting and
opening. Turing or rotating the white nipple with the pliers while applying pressure will

the tubing will be impossible without first fully depressurized the Tap Master as
described in step 4. Immediately trim off a ¼” from the end of the tubing with the
scissors. Make sure tubing end is smooth and round before inserting it into the
replacement filter. NOTE: A rough or oblong tube end will leak.

2a. Mounting Permeate Pump (optional equipment) - Mount permeate pump side by
side with the tap master using supplied mounting clip and screws. IMPORTANT: permeate
pump must be mounted with indicator arrow pointing up.
Insert the tube end about a ¼” into the replacement filter fitting then pull back
gently to ensure a sung fit. Repeat step 5 for the other end of the filter.
Immediately discard used filter. Repeat step 5 for each of the next replacement
filters.
6. Yearly sanitation is recommended on all of our RO systems. The best time to do this is
when you are changing your filters. Drain the system, including the tank, and then
disconnect the blue tubing from the shut-off valve to the tank. Put approximately ¼ to ½
teaspoon of Hydrogen Peroxide or common household bleach into this tube. If you use an
eyedropper, this will be easier. Reconnect the blue tube to the shut-off valve and follow
normal start-up procedures, including draining the tank. If you have an icemaker hookup
installed, be sure to close the ball valve in the line to the refrigerator or turn off the
icemaker until the peroxide or bleach is flushed from the unit.
7. Remount the Tap Master, and SLOWLY open the main water line to the Tap Master. For
Tap Master UV & ULTRA reconnect power adapter. Then open the tank valve slowly.
Failure to repressurize slowly may result in system damage. Water should now be flowing
from the RO sink spigot. Allow the water to run until the stream falls to a thin gentle flow.
Initial discharge may be accompanied by a harmless discoloration due to loose carbon.
Close the RO sink spigot, and allow 3 hours for the reserve tank to refill. A second tank
flushing may be necessary depending on initial tank fill level.

3. Install refrigerator kit (optional) – Installation may vary according to make, model,
age, and equipment level of your refrigerator. Make sure refrigerator icemaker and water
center are turned OFF. Clean area below and around refrigerator thoroughly. Use care when
rolling out refrigerator. Flooring may become scratched, gouged or damaged from moving
refrigerator. Consult your local licensed contractor or plumber for trimmed-in refrigerators, or
refrigerators without rollers. Roll out refrigerator. Unplug refrigerator electric plug. Locate
water line in for refrigerator. (Yours may already be connected to a water line from wall. If so
use local angle-stop to shut off water. Disconnect female fitting. See Fig. 13.) Plan the route
for the water line from the Tap Master™. Drill ¼” holes through the lower cabinetry, high
along the back wall just below the drawers. See Fig. 9. Make sure cabinet contents are
removed, prior to drilling, and ¼” tubing does not come into contact with drawers, doors, or
sharp objects. Smooth the holes free from splinters and sharp edges. [Alternate route for
refrigerator line -- run ¼” refrigerator tubing along the baseboard, and enter the kitchen sink cabinet by drilling
a ¼” opening in the bottom board of your kitchen sink cabinet, towards the front baseboard.]
Connect the female metal fitting from the refrigerator kit to the male metal fitting on
the refrigerator. See Fig. 14. Make sure all male metal fittings are thoroughly Teflon taped to
prevent leaks. Push tubing through the cabinetry holes from the refrigerator to the Tap
Master™ RO. Allow 2-4’ of extra tubing at the refrigerator, and tie it up so that it cannot be
crushed or otherwise damaged. Make sure the cut is straight, the edge is completely smooth,
and the tube is rounded. A scratched, gouged, damaged, or oblong end will leak. Insert the
line marked “to refrigerator” into the blue and white shut-off valve connected to the Tap
Master™ RO. Push tubing all the way in, then pull back gently, to check fit. Most push-pull
fittings take about a ½” of tubing inserted into them. Do not roll back refrigerator until the
Tap Master™ is fully installed and operational. Make sure shut off valve is in the OFF position,
where the blue handle will be perpendicular to the body.
4. Install drain saddle clamp and drain line – Identify a vertical section of drainpipe with
enough space to mount the drain saddle clamp. See Fig. 8 & Fig. 10. Drainpipe material can
be either metal or plastic. Remove hole from the template supplied with drain saddle clamp,
and peel off its backing. Place the template on the previously identified location of drainpipe

back-plate and screws. Alternate tightening screws on each side of the drain saddle clamp
to ensure an even, snug fit. See Fig. 10. Screw plastic female fitting onto the drain saddle
male fitting until it is snug, and wrap excess tubing around the drainpipe.
5. Install water out line to RO sink spigot – Screw Speedfit® spigot adapter onto the
bottom of the RO sink spigot located under the sink until it is snug. See Fig. 15. Over
tightening may cause damage. Insert tubing labeled “to RO spigot” into Speedfit® spigot
adapter. Push tubing all the way in, then pull back gently to check fit. Most push-pull
fittings take about a ¼” of tubing inserted into them.
6. Install reserve tank and connect reserve line – Apply Teflon tape to the male fitting
on top of the reserve tank. Screw on the reserve tank shut off valve until it is snug. (Fig.
