Your Reverse Osmosis (RO) Drinking
Water
System is a
water
treatment
unit. It uses household
water
pressure to
reverse a natural
physical
process called
osmosis. Water,
under pressure, is forced
through
a semi-permeable
mem-
brane where minerals
and impurities
are filtered
out.
Clean drinking
water
goes to the faucet or storage,
while
minerals
and impurities
are sent to the drain with RO
waste water. The minerals
and impurities
are measured
in
water
as total dissolved
solids (TDS).
The system includes
replaceable
pre and postfilter
sedi-
ment-carbon
cartridges.
The prefilter
reduces sand, silt,
dirt, rust particles,
other sediments,
and chlorine
from the
PLAN YOUR INSTALLATION
water
supply
before it can enter the RO membrane.
The
postfilter
reduces any tastes and/or
odors that may
remain
in the water, after
passing through
the RO mem-
brane, and just before going
to the RO faucet. To prevent
water
waste, an automatic
shutoff
valve closes when the
RO faucet
is closed and the storage tank is full.
Your reverse osmosis system gives you a continuous
supply
of sparkling
clear, delicious
water
for drinking,
cooking
and other uses. Foods will look and taste better too.
Having
high quality
RO product
water
at your fingertips
eliminates
the need to buy bottled
water. The storage
tank holds over 2 gallons
of RO product
water
for your
needs.
It is recommended
to read through
the entire manual
before
beginning
your installation.
Follow all steps exact-
ly. Reading this manual
will also help you get all the ben-
efits from your system.
Your Reverse Osmosis
Drinking
Water
System can be
installed
under a sink or in a remote
location.
Typical
remote sites are a laundry
room or utility
room. Review
the location
options below and determine
where you are
going to install your system.
NOTE: For best system performance,
the feed water to
the system should be softened or less than 10 grains per
gallon hard.
UNDER
THE SINK
LOCATION
The Reverse Osmosis Filter Assembly
and storage tank are
normally
installed
in a kitchen
or bathroom
sink cabinet.
See Figure 2.
A suitable
drain point is needed for reject water
from the
Reverse Osmosis filter.
REMOTE
LOCATION
You can also locate the Reverse Osmosis
Filter Assembly
and storage
tank in a remote location
away from the
Reverse Osmosis
Faucet. You will need a nearby
water
source and drain point.
See Figure 3.
CHECK
SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Check size and position
of items for proper
installation
into location
chosen.
