- WHAT YOUR REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM WILL DO -
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
membrane
where
minerals
and im-
purities
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 miner-
als and impurities
are measured
in water
as total dis-
solved solids (TDS).
The system
includes
replaceable
pre and
postfilter
sediment-carbon
cartridges.
The
prefilter
removes
sand,
silt, dirt, rust
particles,
other
sediments,
and
chlorine
from the water
supply
before
it can enter the
RO membrane.
The
postfilter
removes
any
tastes
and/or
odors
that
may
remain
in the water,
after
passing
through
the RO membrane,
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 drink-
ing, cooking
and
other
uses.
Foods
will look
and
taste better
too. Having
high quality
RO product
wa-
ter at your
fingertips
eliminates
the need
to buy
bottled
water.
The storage
tank
holds
over 2 gallons
of RO product
water
for your
needs.
- BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO INSTALL THE RO SYSTEM -
FOR
OPTIMUM
PERFORMANCE
YOUR
KEN-
MORE
REVERSE
OSMOSIS
SYSTEM
SHOULD
BE
INSTALLED
ON SOFTENED
WATER.
CAUTION:
A refrigerator
icemaker
may not operate
properly
when
connected
to a reverse
osmosis
sys-
tem that has been installed
on a water
system
that op-
erates
outside
of the specified
pressures
listed
on
page
16.
Check
Your Water
Supply:
The cold water
supply
to
the RO system
must
be within
certain
quality
limits.
See the specification
table on page 16. If supply
water
is not
within
limits,
the RO system
can
not make
product
water
as it should
and
reduced
RO mem-
brane
life will result.
Trained
sales people
at Sears can perform
a free water
analysis.
This basic
test can help
determine
if any
additional
water
treatment
is required
before
the RO
system.
CAUTION:
Chlorine
in the water
will
destroy
the
RO membrane.
Most cities add chlorine
to the water
supply
to kill bacteria.
The prefilter
removes
chlorine
up to the limits
shown
in the specifications
before
it
enters
the RO membrane.
It is important
to replace
the prefilter
cartridge
at least
every
6 months.
See
the RO care guide
on page
13.
Check
Parts
Included:
Unpack
the carton
and
re-
move
the RO system.
In addition
to the assembled
RO and
the storage
tank,
the system
includes

illustrated
below,
a separate
length
of tubing,
