P/N 1011393 REV. B 07/17
Protect from becoming dry
Protect from water hammer
If the membrane dries out, irreversible damage to the RO membrane may result. Protect
the filter from becoming dry by keeping it
wet and sealed at all times.
The system must be protected from shock,
pressure surges, or pulsation that may occur
inside water pipes. Water hammer occurs in
pipes when a valve or faucet shuts quickly.
Install a water hammer arrestor (pressure
vessel containing compressed air separated
from the water by a diaphragm) to reduce
pressure shock.
Protect from freezing
If the RO membrane freezes during operation or storage, irreversible damage to the
membrane and brittle cracking of the
cartridge or housing may result.
Protect from direct sunlight or other UV
sources
Avoid long-term exposure to direct sunlight
or other UV sources. The RO should be
stored in a dark location.
Protect from high temperatures or
abrupt variation in temperature
The maximum operating temperature is
100°F (38°C). Avoid abrupt variations in temperature. Any temperature variation should
be made slowly.
Protect from rough handling or dropping
Mechanical damage, external breakage,
and/or internal breakage of the filter can
result if the system is dropped or bumped.
Handle with care at all times during transportation and installation.
Protect from organic solvents and
concentrated acids
Prevent any and all contact of the membrane with strong solvents, solvents
containing chlorine, or concentrated acids.
Do NOT use strong solvents or concentrated acids on any plastic parts of the
filter system. Examples of some solvents to
avoid: acetone, methyl acetate (nail polish
remover); hexane (spot removers); turpentine, toluene (paint thinners); dry cleaning
solutions, insecticides.
Protect from abrasive material
The membranes must be protected from
abrasive materials like shavings left in a
pipe. Abrasive materials in contact with the
membrane can cause irreversible damage
to the membrane. All pipes must be flushed
clean before installing the filter. All plastic
parts of the filter system must be protected
from sharp objects like knives, sand paper,
or other tools. Cutting or nicking a plastic
part can weaken it and cause a leak. Do NOT
use abrasive cleansers on any plastic parts.

OPERATION
Overview
yy Normal Operation Mode
During Normal Operation Mode, water
enters the Inlet and flows through the
Filter before exiting the outlet as usable product water.
Yellow - Drain
Blue - Tank
Green - Feed Water
The drain line runs continuously as
long as the system is making water.
This drain line flushes the minerals
removed by the RO membrane.
NOTE: DO NOT plug or stop the water
flow from the drain line. If this
flow is stopped, water will continued to be filtered, but the system
will not flush. This will cause the
RO membrane to plug prematurely and reduce the life of the
RO System.
yy Tank Full Mode
When the tank is full, no water
runs out of the drain line.
CAUTION
Stopping the drain flow can cause the
Filter to plug prematurely and may
reduce the life of the filter. Consult
the factory for more information.

Rinsing the RO System
Sanitizing the Plumbing
The RO System must be rinsed to remove
any air and protective solution before the
system is used.
The plumbing from the RO System
must be sanitized to eliminate possible
contamination that may have occurred
during the installation process.
NOTE: The RO System must be rinsed
TO DRAIN before use. Rinsing to
drain removes storage solution
and air.
1. Check that all tubing connections
are firmly seated. Check to see
that the cartridge retainer clips are
properly engaged and locked. Failure
to keep the retaining clip in place
will result in accidental leaks and
flooding.
2. Make sure the Tank valve is OPEN.
3. Turn on the water supply and check
for leaks.
4. Allow the system to run and the tank
to fill.
5. When the tank is full, the pump will
shut off. Leave the tank undisturbed
for at least 8 hours to ensure proper
sanitization.
6. Two hours after the inlet water is
turned on, check again for leaks,
especially at the tank and tubing connections leading from the
Product water outlet to the tank.
These parts will not see full pressure until 2 hours after the system is
activated.
7. After 8 hours, open the product water valve to allow the product water
in the tank to run out to drain at
maximum flow. The initial discharge
will be dark due to the bulk of the
carbon fines being washed out.
There may be the scent of chlorinated water due to the sanitizing agent
in the tank.
8. When the flow has diminished to a
fast drip, close the valve and allow
the tank to refill. The system is ready
for use.
One ounce (30 ml) of liquid chlorine bleach
(regular bleach, unscented 5.25 % - 6 %
sodium hypochlorite) or Kay-5 sanitizer
solution (Sodium Dichloro-s-Triazinetrione
Dihydrate, 6%) or equivalent can be used to
sanitize the plumbing.
The Kay-5 sanitizer solution is made by
dissolving a 1 oz. packet of Kay-5 powder
in 2 oz. (60 ml) of clean warm water. This
can be done by removing 1 inch from the
top of the Kay-5 packet and adding the 2
oz. of warm water to the packet. Mix with a
coffee stirrer to dissolve. When added to the
plumbing from the RO System, this will create a 60-100 ppm chlorine solution.
NOTE: Follow the handling and safety
instructions supplied with the
sanitizer.
1. Follow the steps in the Rinsing the
RO System section of this manual.
2. Turn off the water to the system.
3. Close the Tank valve.
4. Allow the system and plumbing to
drain by opening the line downstream to the RO System.
5. Disconnect the line to the equipment being served at the Tee fitting
and pour the sanitizer into the line
using a cup or funnel. Be careful not
to spill the sanitizer onto clothing or
skin.
6. Reattach the line to the Tee fitting.
7. Slowly turn on the Tank valve and
allow water to flow through the line
and out to the equipment.
8. Let stand without water flow for at
least 15 minutes to allow time for the
pipes to be sanitized.
9. After 15 minutes without water flow,
open the line at the equipment and
allow water and sanitizer to flow until the presence of sanitizer is gone.
10. Reconnect all lines and turn on water
to the RO. The system is now ready
for use.

Initial Performance Verification
SEMI-ANNUAL TASKS
ANNUAL TASK
After initial flush, a TDS (Total Dissolved
Solids) measurement should be taken and
recorded. This data can be used to compare
to factory test data and future system data.
Some deviations may occur due to differences in feed water TDS and temperature
Check Permeate Tank Air
Pre-Charge
Change Carbon and RO
Cartridges
The permeate tank air charge should be
checked every six months:
Both the Carbon Cartridges and the RO Cartridge
should be changed once a year.
Tools and supplies required:
Follow the change procedures for each as shown
earlier in this Maintenance section.
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Rejection Test
USe a TDS meter to measure the TDS in both
the feed water and product water. Calculate
the percent rejection using the formula
below. Rejection should be 85% or better:
100 x (Feed TDS - Product TDS) / (Feed
TDS) = % Rejection
Example:
Feed TDS = 500 ppm
Product TDS = 25 ppm
100 x (500 - 25) / (500) = 95% Rejection
RO Recovery Calculation
Using a stop watch and graduated cylinder
(or other calibrated volume), measure the
product water flow rate and the drain flow
rate. The product water flow rate should
be the flow coming directly from the RO
System, not from the tank. Close the tank
valve to make this measurement. Calculate
the percent recovery using the formula
below:
100 x (Product Flow Rate) / (Product +
Drain) = % Recovery
Example:
Product Flow Rate = 25 mil/min
Drain Flow Rate = 200 ml/min
100 x (25) / (25 + 200 ) = 11.1%
Recovery
Recovery is dependent on feed water temperature and pressure. Measure and record
the feed water temperature and pressure
whenever measuring the percent recovery.
Tank Pressure Switch Test
With the product water line connected to
the tank and with the system running, close
the tank valve. The pressure in the line from
the system will rise and the system should
shut off (drain flow stops).
Air Pressure Gauge, 5-40 psi range (0.3 2.7 bar) with tire valve (Schrader Valve)
connection.
Source of compressed air (manual bicycle
tire pump or air compressor).
CAUTION
Air pre-charge should be checked and adjusted under zero system pressure. The system
must be depressurized before checking the
tank pre-charge. Do NOT adjust the tank air
pre-charge with the system under pressure.
CAUTION
Be careful when adding air to the tank. Do
NOT add too much air pressure to the tank.
1. Refer to Figure 1. Depressurize the
system by closing the Inlet valve and
opening the Tank valve. Make sure
the Permeate Tank is fully drained.
2. Unscrew the protective cap from the
air valve on the tank.
3. Use the pressure gauge to check the
tank pre-charge for pressure.
NOTE: If any water comes out of the
air valve, the tank bladder has
ruptured and the tank needs to
be replaced.
4. The permeate tank should have a
pressure of 5-8 psi.
yy To add pressure to the permeate
tank, use a manual bicycle tire pump
or other source of compressed air.
yy To release pressure from the
permeate tank, press the center
pin on the air inlet valve.
5. Once the permeate tank is at 5-8 psi,
replace the protective cap on the air
valve.
6. Pressurize the system by opening
the Inlet and Tank valves.
Opening the tank valve allows the pressure
to drop in the line from the system and the
system should turn on.
