TEST THESYSTEM
NOTE: Complete
the sanitizing
procedures
on the preced-
ing page before
pressure testing.
To pressure test the system, complete
the following
steps.
1. Open
the water
supply valve to the Reverse Osmosis
System. See Figure 23.
2. Open
the main water
supply valve and several house
faucets.
This will purge air from the house plumbing
and system. Close faucets when water
runs smooth.
See

leaks. Fix leaks
if any are found.
If problems
exist, refer to the trou-

NOTE: When
the system is first pressurized,
water
may
"spurt"
from the faucet
air gap hole until air is expelled
from the RO system.
