Microprocessor controller Functions
The Microprocessor is programmed for 10second delay.
After the delay the unit will flush itself for Maximum efficiency, this will last
for 15 seconds. The Microprocessor’s flush LED is on during this function.
After flushing the Membrane, the unit starts producing water. The
Microprocessor’s making RO LED is on during this function.
While producing water, the LCD will display the water purity in Parts per
It will take 20 seconds for the unit to display the correct calibrated PPM.
If the water source is interrupted, the unit will shut itself off & the Source
water LED will go on.
The unit is programmed to flush itself once every 2 hours for 15 seconds,
during this function the Flush light will go on.
The unit is equipped with high pressure switch which will turn itself off if
the outlet water line closed by means of float valve or any other.
Filter change instruction
1- Turn Off the unit and disconnect from Electricity.
2- Shut off the water supply
3- Release the pressure from the water outlet by manually opening the float
valve or any other valve used for water shut off.
4- Use filter housing wrench to open the Canisters.
5- Replace the filters.
6- Make sure the O-Ring is in place, and turn the housing counter-clockwise
to close.
7- Make sure there are no leaks then turn the water supply on.
8- After changing the RO Membrane, dispose of the product water for half
