From below sink, slide lock washer and hex nut over threaded shank and tighten with a wrench. It is best to have someone hold the faucet from above the sink to keep it from moving out of place. If this is not possible then tighten the hex nut until it is just slightly less than completely tight.
Then turn the faucet base from above the sink, tightening it while orienting the faucet in the desired location. The John Guest Angle Stop Valve provides a simple, easy connection between the angle stop cold water shut-off and the bottom of the riser tube. The Angle Stop Valve has built-in shut-off and provides the feed supply connection for the reverse osmosis system. These flexible tubes are the easiest to use with the John Guest Angle Stop Valve because the 2" of additional space needed for the Faucet Adaptor can be easily accommodated by flexing this kind of riser.
A shorter riser tube will not be needed. If your riser tube is made of copper you will need to either make a bend in the copper to allow for the 2" of space needed for the John Guest Angle Stop Valve. In some cases, older plumbing may use a larger size shut-off and riser tube. Alternatives include self piercing valves, T fittings, and faucet adaptors that connect between the faucet and the top of the riser tube. It should not be used on ribbed, corrugated, reinforced plastic or steel braided tubing. Ask your local dealer what alternatives can be used in place of the self-piercing valve if one cannot be used under your sink.
The Faucet Adaptor not supplied and Ball Valve not supplied will work with all standard kitchen faucets and provide a reliable connection to supply feed water to the RO unit. These flexible tubes are the easiest to use with the Faucet Adaptor because the 2" of additional space needed for the Faucet Adaptor can be easily accommodated by flexing this kind of riser.
If your riser tube is made of copper you will need to either make a bend in the copper to allow for the 2" of space needed for the Faucet Adaptor. A copper tubing cutter is the ideal tool for making this cut although a hack saw can be used. If a cut is made, a new compression ring not supplied will need to be installed to make a new water tight connection with the riser tube and the angle stop shut-off valve.
Drain Saddle Valve 5. Change the filter cartridges, and turn the system back on, check for leaks. This process should take about 2. If the cabinet sidewalls are not solid, unit may sit on the floor with screws used just to keep it against the cabinet in a vertical position. Do not install the drain saddle near a garbage disposal to avoid clogging the drain line with debris. The vast majority of problems with RO Systems are a result of low pressure.
The drain saddle valve should always be installed before above the p-trap and on a vertical or horizontal drain. Do not install the drain saddle near a garbage disposal to avoid clogging the drain line with debris. For convenience on under sink installations it may be advisable to complete under sink tubing connections at this time. Install RO membrane O-ring end first, carbon prefilter s and sediment pre filter in vertical mounted housings.
Be sure RO Membrane is pushed into Membrane housing as far as it will go. It is recommended that filters and membranes be handled with clean or gloved hands. The RO unit is normally mounted to the right or left sink cabinet sidewall, depending on where supply tank is to be located. Generally the unit is installed at the front of the cabinet and the tank at the rear. To mount the unit, elevate it at least 2" off the floor, level it and mark the location of mounting holes needed.
Drill hole for mounting screws and install screws allowing the mounting bracket slots to slip over them. If the cabinet sidewalls are not solid, unit may sit on the floor with screws used just to keep it against the cabinet in a vertical position.
Pre-filling the storage tank is recommended so there is sufficient pressure to check for leaks and water to flush the carbon post filter. To do this connect the feed line that will serve the RO unit directly to the bladder tank. Allow the water to fill the bladder until it stops. Close to tank valve, shut off the feed pressure, release the tube from the reducer and remove the reducer from the tank valve. With all components in place, complete final tubing connections with these guidelines: To complete this operation, connect a T with a shut off valve into the faucet tubing and route tubing to the refrigerator.
Hooking up to existing copper tubing is not recommended due to possible corrosion Turn off icemaker inside freezer prior to turning off the existing tap water supply line to the refrigerator.
Turn on the icemaker after the RO system has been drained several times and the tank has a full supply of water. Icemaker lines are often run in the rafters of unfinished basements or finished basements with drop ceilings and then up to the fridge.
In cases where a basement or cabinets connecting sink and fridge are not available, icemaker connections cannot be made. Before any service is performed on the RO system, turn off icemaker valve and icemaker unit. Turn back on only after RO system has been sanitized and flushed out.
Each year the filters in the system should be replaced. Usually the membrane can be replaced every other year, but the pre-filters and post-filter should be changed annually and in some cases more often. When installing a new membrane be sure to push the membrane into the housing as far as it will go. Each time the filters are replaced it is recommended that the system be sanitized. After all filters are removed from the system, housings have been cleaned, tank is empty, and faucet is open RO Systems are highly sensitive to pressure and temperature.
RO Membranes always perform better under higher pressures.
They produce more water, faster, and of better quality with high pressure. The vast majority of problems with RO Systems are a result of low pressure. The effects of low pressure include water constantly running to the drain, slow water production and low water volume available in storage tank. In these cases where low pressure exists, a booster pump will be required.
On the following page is a table showing RO Membrane performance over a range of temperatures and pressures.
This is H2O Distributors detailed, step-by-step instructions and a reverse osmosis diagram for installing a standard reverse osmosis water purification system. Install a reverse osmosis system under your kitchen sink to supply purified water. You can do it yourself in less than 2 hours.
Membranes are tested at 65 psi of pressure and temperature of 77 degrees. For each incremental change in either variable, membrane performance changes accordingly. Higher pressures increase production and vice versa. To troubleshoot a poor performing RO System an accurate measure of the pressure and temperature of water will be required. This will require a pressure gauge to determine exactly what the water pressure is that is feeding the membrane. DO NOT connect the system drain line to a dishwasher drain or near a garbage disposal.
Back pressure from these units may cause the air gap to overflow. Choose where to install the gooseneck faucet. Drill the hole for the faucet using the correct drill bit for the material drilling through available from you local hardware store or home center.
When cutting the tubing make clean, square, cuts, failing to do so could result in poor connection and possible leaks. Put the plastic pipe thru the hex compression nut. Put the white nylon sealing washer on the plastic pipe, assemble and hand tighten the hex nut.
Choose Faucet Location Drill Proper Size Hole File Hole Install the goose faucet according to the figure, and then connect it with the outlet of post inline carbon filter by plastic pipe. Install the supply water valve using the Tee fitting, and then connect to the water source. Be sure to connect to the cold water line. Hot water will severely damage your RO system.
This damage is not covered under the manufactures warrantee. Drain Clamp Installation for discharging into the sink drainpipe. Position the drain clamp on the drainpipe above the drain trap. Allow room for drilling. Use a battery powered or properly grounded drill. DO NOT penetrate the opposite side of the pipe. Locate the drain tubing. The lowest point of the line should be point of connection to the drain clamp.
There should be no sag in the line as this may cause excessive noise as the reject water is flowing to drain. Install the pressure tank ball valve.
DO NOT adjust the air valve on the pressure tank. The manufacturer has already preset it. Wrap the threads of the pressure tank with Teflon tape. Attach the tank ball valve to the top of pressure tank and connect the pipe from the RO membrane to the tank ball valve and post carbon filter. Mount the RO system with provided screws. Set pressure tank in place. Connect all remaining plastic piping. Start up your RO system 1. Turn on cold water supply valve and feed water valve, but close the tank ball valve.
Open the goose faucet. Check the system, for leaks. After about 5 minutes, the water will start to drip out of the faucet, let it drip for about 10 minutes, then turn off the faucet and open the tank valve. When the tank is full, flush the system by opening the faucet until the water in the tank is completely discharged and slows to a drip. Turn off the faucet, and let the tank fill again. This process should take about 2.
