I solved the problem! The system's manifold (the plastic base you put the filter in) has small black conical shape button. When you tight the filter in, one of the two small triangle-shaped cams (located close to the filter's central hole) pushes the manifold's button, and this opens the water flow. The problem is that the cams are too low and do not push the button all the way in. Take a pliers and squeeze (not too much!) the cams, so they will raise a little: it will be enough to push the button to open the flow completely.

SOURCE: burnt element on water heater
It would be a good idea.If you don't you have water all over you and the heater.Turn water off and open the drain valve at bottom of heater.I would hook a water hose and run outside.when the water start running open the pop off valve ,it will run faster.

I had same system under my sink for same amount of time and have since then removed entirely for health reasons related to Ro Systems. Mainly the tanks becomes contaminated [alge build up]and my faimly had constant nagging stomach aches which took a long time to resolve untill we decided to disconnected and throw out our "beloved healthy RO System" and decided to install a bi annual disposable type filter system. If you are expereanceing this I would advise the same as for the leak ,There are so many connections under there and it is usually not the tank but the fittings in lines some where and the reason it looks like the tank is because that is the lowest point the leak has traveled. So check all your fittings and if you decide on simple water filter I will advise you.
Please rate. Thanks jj505

check the cold water pressure, if it is high you might have to install a pressure reducing valve at the water heater.

Testimonial: "knows his stuff A+"
First thing is to cut power supply off at the breaker box. Next turn main water to the water heater off. Once power and water is cut of to the water heater you are now ready to drain the tank for element removal.
Once water is drained remove wires from element and remove with socket if it is that type of element or 4 bolt type.
Upon starting putting it all back together remember to open all faucet's hot side to purge out all air out of system before turning power back on.
Water need's to be running out of faucet's and no air before cutting power on. If you turn it on before air is out of system it will damage th enew element you just installed.

Most electric hot water heaters have two thermostats, one near the top of the tank and one near the bottom, and are covered by removable metal cover plates. The thermostats are pressed firmly against the bare metal wall of the hot water heaters tank.
The top thermostat usually has a high limit switch that will trip if the water gets too hot. When it trips it shuts off the electricity to both the upper and lower heating elements.
To reset the high limit switch there is usually a red button that you must press. When the upper limit switch trips it is often an indication that something else has gone wrong with the heater.
When the top of the tank is hot the upper thermostat removes power from the upper heating element and transfers the power to the lower thermostat and heating element. If the lower thermostat is defective, then the lower portion of the tank will not be heated and the supply will be greatly reduced.
Check for power at the upper thermostat terminals where the power is sent to the lower thermostat and heating element. If there is no power then the upper thermostat should be replaced. If there is power then check for power at the lower heating element. If there is no power at the lower heating element then replace the lower thermostat.
If there is power to the lower heating element then it should be getting hot. If it is not, replace it. Another possibility is a broken dip tube. Check for a broken dip tube and replace if necessary.
Hope this helps out
