The tube going from the ro cartridge is clogged or the drain tube going from the faucet to the drain p trap is clogged

I have installed many ro systems a=nd have had that problem Not only do youhave to replace the filters but make sure the drain hoses are clear

use a pipe cleaner or a a stiff wire
I also remove the connection going into the ptrap and clean back to faucet...it is usually real nasty

Leaks on the top of black box of culligan water softner under sink system


Is this a reverse osmosis drinking water system? If it is it is an H8 RO. If so shut the water off that feeds the RO. The leak is probably coming from one of the fittings, they can be cut by the compression fittings and leak.

That is the drain for the reverse osmosis system. You have what is referred to as an AIR GAP faucet. The waste water is pushed up there before it goes to drain just as the drain for a dishwasher does. If water is coming out of the faucet the drain is most likely plugged or the line is kinked causing water to back up and overflow. Check the drain line for kinks and clean out the drain where it attaches to the stand pipe.

no "slug" is available however you could just use a reverse osmosis diaphram pressure tank to boost the water pressure. you can also use a water supply tube to bypass the in-refrigerator completely.

GE smartwater R.O. system making noise from hole on side of fauce


Probably some gunk clogging the drain line. First step would be to remove the drain line from underneath the sink and check to see that it is clear. If it isn't, the next thing that may happen is when it gets completely clogged, water will start shooting out of the weep hole. As an added measure< i would say to force compressed air down the weep hole to clean out any clog in the line that you can't reach.

Slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic


The water line tap may be screwed back into the water line or you did not sufficiently poke a hole into the water line with the tap. We had the same problem. Shut off the water supply, remove the tap from the line and check the size of the hole. my bet is the hole is very small. Either drill out the hole with a drill and replace the tap (with a new rubber grommet) or add a tee into the line with the proper size compression fitting (that is what we did) and the water will flow freely..
