The following components make up your reverse osmosis system:
Prefilter #1 (sediment) Melt Blown Polypropylene filter removes larger particles such as dirt, rust & sediment.
Prefilter #2 (& 3 if applicable) 10 Micron Carbon Block removes chlorine and chemical contaminants in the feed water and protects the RO membrane.
Reverse Osmosis Membrane Thin Film Composite Membranes reduces dissolved minerals, metals, and salts. In this process, harmful compounds are separated by the membrane from the water, and the contaminants are flushed to the drain.
A coconut shell activated carbon post filter is provided for a final “polish” and to remove tastes, odors and to provide great tasting water.
The RO module is the main component and holds the prefilters and membrane, and post filter. A bracket is provided so they can be mounted under the sink or in a basement.
Bladder tank holds RO purified water, ready to use.
Automatic shut-off valve closes when the storage tank is full and shuts off the water supply to conserve water. The valve activates when the tank pressure is 2/3 of the feed pressure.
The RO Faucet is used to dispense purified water when you want it.
Feed water saddle valve connects to the cold water line to supply water to the RO system.
Waste water saddle valve connects to the drain to remove reject water from the RO system.
Tubing connects all RO components.
Quick-Connect fittings are used for necessary tubing connections. These fittings connect by pushing the tube into the fitting past a slight resistance until the tube bottoms out in the fitting. Simply make a clean cut in your tubing and gently push in the tubing until it will not go any further. To ensure that your tubing has made a snug fit, pull back gently on the tubing; it should catch. Always check for leaks to ensure a watertight connection.
