IMPORTANT INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Read entire manual. Failure to follow all guides and rules could cause personal injury or property damage.
• BE SURE TO FOLLOW ALL APPLICABLE STATE AND LOCAL CODES.
• Use a qualified installer.
• Do not install the Reverse Osmosis system outside or in extreme hot or cold temperatures. DO NOT INSTALL ON HOT WATER.
• Recommended installation is under the sink. However, the unit can be installed in a remote location, up to 30 feet away from the sink.
Additional installation materials may be required.
• If unit is installed in basement, with faucet on 1st floor, some capacity loss may be experienced. RVTNK1 can be purchased to provide
additional capacity.
• If Reverse Osmosis system is connected to a refrigerator icemaker, a special icemaker connection kit is required (RVKIT). Do not use
copper tubing for the connection between the Reverse Osmosis system and the refrigerator.
• Be sure the water supply conforms to the specifications on page 2. If water supply conditions are unknown, contact your municipal
water company or your local health department for a list of contaminants in your area and a list of laboratories certified by your state
to analyze drinking water.
WARNING: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable cysts. This
Reverse Osmosis system contains a replaceable treatment membrane cartridge critical for effective reduction of Total Dissolved
Solids. The water should be tested periodically to verify that the system is performing satisfactorily. This system is acceptable for
treatment of influent concentrations of no more than 27 mg/L nitrate and 3 mg/L nitrite in combination measured as N and is
certified for nitrate/nitrite reduction only for water supplies with a pressure of 280kPa (40 psig) or greater. Small parts remaining
after the installation could be a choke hazard. Discard safely.

Osmosis system (must adapt to 1/4″ OD tubing).
2
THINGS TO CHECK BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION
FEED WATER—The water supply to the undercounter Reverse Osmosis system must
have the qualities listed in the specifications (see page 2). Municipal water supplies most
often will have these qualities. Well water may need conditioning—have the water tested
by a water analysis laboratory and get their recommendations for treatment.
CAUTION: For water with hardness greater than 10 grains (at 6.9 pH), the use
of a softener is recommended. Failure to install a softener will reduce the life of
the Reverse Osmosis membrane. See Fig. 1A for additional information on the
possible need for a softener.
DRAIN POINT*—A suitable drain point and air gap (check your local codes) are
needed for reject water from the Reverse Osmosis membrane cartridge.
RO FAUCET—The RO product water faucet installs on the sink or on the countertop
next to the sink. Often, it is installed in an existing sink spray attachment hole. Space is
required underneath for tubing to and from the faucet, and for securing the faucet in
place. All faucet connections and installation procedures are done on or above the sink
or countertop. Refer to Electronic Faucet Installation section.
BASEMENT INSTALLATION—If installing in a basement, leave enough tubing in
place during installation to be able to move unit to floor for ease of servicing and making
filter/membrane changes.

PREFERRED INSTALLATION OPTIONS
(Options A, B and C)
OPTION A.
BASEMENT ACCESS INSTALLATION (FIG. 3A)
Route the drain line DIRECTLY from the Reverse Osmosis system to a standpipe in
the basement, bypassing the air gap provided in the faucet. The drain line may also
be routed in the basement to a floor drain or washtub, provided that the air gap in the
basement is maintained. Avoid dips, loops or low spots in the drain line. The basement
air gap and drain installation configuration must conform to all local codes. Special air
gap fittings are available to connect the drain line to the top of the standpipe.
OPTION B.
SEPARATE VENT INSTALLATION—2 P-TRAP (DRY-VENTED) (FIG. 3B)
Install a separate dry-vented p-trap under the sink to be used exclusively for the Reverse
Osmosis drain line. A dry-vented p-trap is a p-trap that has its own vent/stack. Attach
the provided drain line adapter to the p-trap and secure it with the slip joint nut and
washer as shown. Route the drain line from the air gap to the drain line adapter
ensuring that there are no dips, loops or low spots in the line, which could result in a
clogged drain line. The drain line adapter should be aligned vertically such that the
hose connection points in a direction 45° of vertical. (See Fig. 3E.) The drain line
MUST be routed through the air gap provided in the RO water faucet.
OPTION C.
SHARED VENT INSTALLATION— 2 P-TRAP (WET-VENTED) (FIG. 3C)
Install a p-trap under the sink to be used exclusively for the Reverse Osmosis drain line.
A wet-vented p-trap is a p-trap that shares a common vent/stack. Attach the provided
drain line adapter to the p-trap and secure it with the slip joint nut and washer as
shown. Route the drain line from the air gap to the drain line adapter ensuring that
there are no dips, loops or low spots in the line, which could result in a clogged drain
line. The drain line adapter should be aligned vertically such that the hose connection
points in a direction 45° of vertical. (See Fig. 3E.) The drain line MUST be routed
through the air gap provided in the RO water faucet. Locate the p-trap as high as
possible (minimum of 4″ above horizontal pipe from second sink or disposer).
SECONDARY RECOMMENDATION
(Use only if option A, B or C is not possible.)
OPTION D.
DRAIN LINE ADAPTER INSTALLATION (FIG. 3D)
DO NOT install the drain line DOWNSTREAM OF A DISPOSAL or in a
HORIZONTAL PIPE. Install the provided drain line adapter under the sink as
shown. The baffle-tee or y-connector shown MUST be in place (purchase and install
if necessary) to prevent a clog in the Reverse Osmosis drain line. Route the drain line
from the air gap to the drain line adapter ensuring that there are no dips, loops or low
spots in the line, which could result in a clogged drain line. The drain line adapter
should be aligned vertically so that the hose connection points in a direction 45° off
vertical. (See Fig. 3E.) This installation MAY result in a slight drain noise in the sink
drain when the Reverse Osmosis system is operating. Rotate the Drain Line adapter tee
assembly slowly until noise is minimized. Generally, 180° opposite the existing
horizontal pipe/baffle-tee is a good orientation.

SANITIZING THE REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM
Sanitize upon installation of the Reverse Osmosis system and after servicing inner
parts of the Reverse Osmosis system, including replacement of prefilter, postfilter
and Reverse Osmosis cartridge. It is important to wash hands with anti-bacterial
soap before handling inner parts of the system.
CAUTION: If installing unit in New Construction, ensure house plumbing is flushed
thoroughly before opening the water supply valve. Also, before sanitizing, be sure to
remove all cartridges as follows. Chlorine will destroy the Reverse Osmosis cartridge.

PRESSURE TESTING THE SYSTEM
WHAT THE REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM DOES
Reverse Osmosis removes Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and
organic matter from water by diffusing it through a special
membrane. The membrane separates minerals and impurities
from the water and they are flushed to the drain. High quality
product water goes directly to the drinking water faucet or to the
storage tank. The system makes a good supply of drinking water
each day (see Product Specifications). How much it makes depends
on the feed water supply pressure, temperature, and quality.
The system includes an electronic faucet assembly with an
integrated testing feature. When water is taken from the faucet,
a flashing green indicator light means TDS removal is within
specified limits and that water quality is good.
The prefilter and postfilter are replaceable cartridges. The carbon
prefilter removes chlorine while also filtering sediments. The
postfilter removes any other undesirable tastes and odors before
you use the water.
—DO THE SANITIZING PROCEDURE BEFORE PRESSURE
TESTING—INSTALLATION CHECKLIST
1. Open the water supply valve to the Reverse Osmosis system and
open the storage tank shutoff valve.
2. Check all connections for LEAKS.
3. In about 4 hours, pressure will build in the Reverse Osmosis
system. Carefully recheck all fittings and connections for water
leaks. Correct leaks if any are found.
4. Fill sink(s) 1/2 full of tap water and drain, checking drain
plumbing for leaks.
PURGING THE SYSTEM
1. Wait about 4 hours for the storage tank to fill.
2. Open the RO faucet until the tank is empty and flow stops.
3. Close the RO faucet and repeat these steps three more times.
The system is ready to make product water for use.
THE GE ELECTRONIC MONITOR SYSTEM
Indicator lights on the faucet base show Reverse Osmosis
performance when the faucet is open to dispense water.
Flashing Green Light—The Reverse Osmosis system is providing
high quality drinking water.
NOTE: If the Reverse Osmosis system is connected to the
refrigerator, this light will also flash when the icemaker or
dispenser is in use.
The green light may stop flashing when the supply of Reverse
Osmosis water is nearly gone and flow from the RO water faucet
decreases. This is a normal condition.
Flashing Amber “FILT” Light—The prefilter and postfilter cartridges
need replacing. This occurs after 6 months or 900 gallons of
product water use, whichever occurs first. Also, replace the 4 “AA”
alkaline batteries in the electronics box. Good batteries are needed
to ensure correct indicator light operation. Weak batteries may
give a false “RO” light indication. Changing the batteries resets the
6 month or 900 gallon period.
Flashing Amber “RO” Light—The Reverse Osmosis cartridge is no
longer removing at least 75% of the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
from the supply water. The Reverse Osmosis cartridge, flow
control, and screen need replacing.
NOTE: Disregard initial or short periods (a few seconds) of the
flashing “RO” light. Long periods of limited or no use can cause
the TDS levels to temporarily change.
WARNING: Initially, the Reverse Osmosis cartridge
contains a food grade preservative that has to be purged
from the system before first use or whenever Reverse
Osmosis cartridge is replaced. The preservative will give
product water an unpleasant taste and odor.
INSTALLATION CHECKLIST
1. Are all tubing connections tightened? Do they run between the
points shown? No leaks!
2. Is the faucet base leadwire connected to the electronics box
leadwire?
3. Is the battery holder connected to the electronics box and are
the batteries installed in the holder correctly?
4. Did you use drain option B, C or D? Make sure the 3 ⁄ 8 ″ drain
tubing, from the faucet to the drain point, is without loops,
dips, or low-spots.
5. Is the tank shutoff valve in the open position?
6. Is the water supply shutoff valve open?
7. Did you sanitize and purge the system?
