SYSTEM CARE GUIDE
MODEL NO. 625.385750
1. AT LEAST every 6 months, replace the prefilter and postfilter cartridges or when yellow LED flashes.
2. Replace the RO membrane cartridge when the percent rejection of total dissolved solids (TDS) is less than shown
in the specifications (see B, below) or when red LED flashes.
3. Replace the batteries once per year.
If any of the following occur before the 6 months, replace as directed.
A. Slow Making of Product Water: Replace the prefilter cartridge.
C. Chlorine Taste and/or Odor: Replace the prefilter, post filter and
tf the production rate does not improve, replace the post filter car-
RO membrane cartridges.
tridge and RO membrane cartridge.
B. High Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in Product Water: You can
get a free TDS test through some Sears retail stores or service
departments, tf the store or service department does not have a
TDS meter, you can send treated and untreated water samples to
a water analysis lab for testing. It is important to test both the
treated and untreated water to determine system performance. If
the TDS is not within the system's
performance
guidelines,
replace the prefilter, post filter and RO membrane cartridges.

CORRECTION
CAUSE
The ppm of chlorine in your water supply
exceeds maximum
limits, and has de-
stroyed the RO membrane.
The prefilter is no longer removing chlo-
rine from the water supply.
Post filter expended.
RO membrane cartridge expended.
Contamination
in product water storage.
Water supply to the RO system not within
specifications.
Prefilter or RO membrane
cartridges
plugged with sediments.
Storage tank air-charge less than 5 - 7
psi.
tf the water supply contains more than 2.0 ppm of chlorine, addi-
tional filtering of the water supply to the RO is needed. Correct
this condition before doing maintenance on the RO system.
Replace the prefilter, post filter and RO membrane cartridges.
Replace the post filter cartridge. If taste and odor persists, re-
place the prefilter cartridge and RO membrane cartridge.
Use sanitizing procedures. Replace the post filter cartridge.
