PRESSURE
TEST
THE SYSTEM
NOTE: Complete
the sanitizing
procedures
on the pre-
ceding page before pressure
testing.
To pressure
test the system, complete
the following
steps.
1. Turn the handle
of the saddle valve counterclockwise
to open the valve. See Fig. 23.
2. Open the water supply valve to the Reverse Osmosis
System. See Figure 23.
3. 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 Figure 23.
NOTE: if leaking
occurs at the saddle valve, you may
need to tighten the saddle valve nut.
4. Pressure
will start to build in the RO system in about 2
hours Carefully
check all fittings and connections
as
the system builds pressure.
Check for water leaks. Fix
leaks if any are found, if problems
exist, refer to the
troubleshooting
chart or call the toll free number.
NOTE: When the system is first pressurized,
water
may "spurt" from the faucet air gap hole until air is
expelled
from the RO system.
Please review
the following
operating
features
before
using your Reverse
Osmosis
System:
You will not have filtered water immediately,
it may
take 1-3 hours to completely
fill the storage tank and
create maximum
flow from the Reverse Osmosis
faucet.
Water Pressure
from the Reverse Osmosis
faucet will be
less than your standard
faucet.
Water will run to the drain while the Reverse Osmosis
system is producing
water, even if you are not draw-
ing water from the Reverse Osmosis
faucet. You may
hear a small quantity
of water going to the drain for a
couple of hours.
Water going to the drain will auto-
matically
shut off when the storage tank is full.
PURGING
THE SYSTEM

the system, complete

2. Close the Reverse Osmosis
faucet after the 24 hour
purging
period is complete.
