View Full Version : starting up for first time

In reading the manual it says to "purge" the system for about 15minutes. What exactly do you mean by "purge"? Just let the system run or fill it up and let it drain?
PS -OR +1 if that is needed. Also what is the slide pin on the faucet adapter? Is this to allow your tap to flow if it is needed while you ar using your sink?

Let it run no draining necessary your just flushing out any carbon dust and such. Our filters are the cleanest you'll find on the market but just letting the system run and throwing away the first two gallons is good practice.
The slide pin is just the on/off switch if you want to leave the adapter in place. Move the shutoff valve on the yellow tubing to the faucet end of the tubing and you'll have a quick connect fitting to disconnect your tubing.

of course, another question...hehe.
Just started her up and noticed everything looks good and running as expected. However, I am noticing while the DI chamber is filling I already have water coming out of the blue line. The out line. Is this normal or should nothing come out until the DI chamber is full? If it should not let any water out until the last chamber is full then something is set incorrectly. If this is normal, cool. Just let me know. Also just to see what would happen I swithced the TDS meter to out and it shows the same as the in. It does not change. I will see if anything changes once the DI chamber is full and has been running for a bit.

whoo hoo, 6 going in and 0 coming out!! RO heaven:) One last thing to add to the previous question. I have also noticed a very small leak coming out of the connection coming out of the 3rd standing canister. The leak is coming from the elbow connector coming out of the housing, if that makes sense. Can this be tightened to form a seal or ?? I can take a pic if needed.

The housing is low pressure and may run empty but the interior cartridge is running full to overflow and is normal. If the leak is coming out around the tubing remove the tubing and reinsert as it is an o-ring seal. The temp in our shop is cool so we don't always get a good seal.
