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 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 meas-
ured 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 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 fin-
gertips eliminates
the need to buy bottled
water. The
storage tank holds over 2 gallons of RO product
water
for your needs.
PLAN
YOUR
INSTALLATION
it is recommended
to read through
the entire manual
before beginning
your installation.
Follow all steps exact-
ly. Reading
this manual

Your Reverse Osmosis
Drinking
Water System can be

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 cab-
inet. 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.
