HOW
TO CUT AND
CONNECT
THE TUBES
Your Reverse Osmosis
Water System includes
push-in
fittings for quick tubing connection.
Review the follow-
ing instructions
before connecting
the tubes in the next
step.
Push In Fitting_
TubeN,4K
Cut tubes to length
1. Use a sharp cutter or knife to cut the end of tubing.
Always
cut the tubing square. See Figure 16.
2. inspect
the end (about 1") of the tubing to be sure
there are no nicks, scratches
or other rough spots, if
needed,
cut the tubing again. See Figure 16.
NOTE: Tubing lengths should allow for the removal
of
the assembly
from the hanger
washers
for servicing,
if
tubing lengths are shortened
for heater appearance,
it
may be necessary
to keep the assembly
on the hanger
washers
for service.
Cut tubing square
with end of tubing
round,
smooth,
with no cuts, nicks or flat spots.

Connect
tubes
1. Push tubing through
collet, until it engages
the o-ring.
See Figure
17. Continue
pushing
until the tube bot-
toms out against
the back of the fitting. See Figure 18.
A common
mistake is to stop pushing
when the tube
engages
the o-ring. This will lead to future leaks.
When a 1/4" tube is fully engaged,
11/16" of the tube
has entered
the fitting. When a 3/8" tube is fully
engaged,
3/4" of the tube has entered
the fitting. See
Figures 17 & 18.
2. if using tubing other than tubing supplied
with the
system, be sure it is of high quality, exact size and
roundness
with a smooth
surface.
