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.

Im at the six month point, red light flashing, which of the filters do i replace and do i need to sanitize the storage tank?


The filters that you should replace every the six months are the two pre/post filters (FQROPF). The membrane (FQROMF) needs to be replaced every 1 to 2 years. During the filter change, bacteria could be introduced, so it is recommended that you sanitize the tank while changing the filters. Here are the filters you need to replace:

An RO drinking water air gap faucet would be the ideal faucet to purchase for your RO system. Here are a few options you can choose from that may come in brushed nickel: http://www.freshwatersystems.com/c-821-ro-drinking-water-air-gap-faucets.aspx

Indicator lites on the GE RO facuet do not lite. Batteries have been changed several time and the filters are not that old.


If you have concern about the quality of water being produced by your RO system, I would recommend using a handheld or in-line TDS meter. Instead of a red or green LED, these meters will give you a reading of TDS (total dissolved solids) in parts per million (PPM). With either of these meters you are taking a reading from the feed water to the system as well as from the product water, you then can calculate the percentage of solids being rejected by the RO system (using the simple equation listed below). This way you will know exactly how well the RO system is working and when the membrane needs to be replaced. I have included links below to our selection of handheld and in-line TDS meters as well as an instructional video that explains how to use a handheld TDS meter.

Here is a helpful link that includes the formula for calculating percent rejection.

If you want the reverse osmosis water to go to the ice maker then you tap in to the line that feeds the spiget on the sink.

GE smartwater R.O. system leaking out weep hole


Same exact problem started for us last night. (Same model, installed by me about four+ years ago) Water was really coming out of the weep hole, and didn't stop until I shut it off at the valve. This happened once before, and all I had to do was clean the drain line adapter, because it gets full of gunk from the disposal over time. But this time that did not do the trick. (Plus there was not all that much gunk this time....) So I was baffled for awhile but came up with this solution.

I hooked up a small length of clear tubing to my cheap-o tire inflater/air compressor. Put the clear tube against the weep hole. Turned on the compressor, and VOILA!, a bunch of gunk that was clogging the drain tube came out. I think when this tube, or the drain line adapter gets clogged, it causes water to go out the weep hole instead of down the drain. (If you don't have a small compressor, then theoretically there is enough air pressure from something like a bicycle pump, and this solution *might* work with one of those. But if you try this, of course only use the DOWNWARD (air-going-outward) pump action...pulling up (inward) would force the clog deeper up the drain tube)

I have a ge reverse osmosis filtration system and recently lost pressure and tank capacity. I have only had the system about a month and my water has been tested fine. I did leave town for 10 days, could...


Make sure that all valves are in the open position.
Try to recharge the water storage tank. Here are the steps to follow.
* In General: When any type shut-off valve handle is positioned so that it is parallel or in line with the tubing that enters the valve, valve is OPEN. When handle is turned perpendicular to tubing that enters valve, valve is CLOSED.

Necessary Supplies:
1) Tire Gauge marked in 5psi increments (ie 5, 10, 15, 20psi, etc.)
2) Bicycle tire pump for standard type bike tire valve
To recharge RO system tank:

1) Close cold water feed valve (valve located at some point along the cold water line from street plumbing).*
2) Leaving RO tank valve on, turn tank on side & locate valve stem on bottom side.
3) Remove stem cap.
4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave RO faucet open throughout procedure)
5) If current tank pressure is insufficient to empty tank, apply tire pump to valve stem and pump 10 – 15 times. Exit flow will increase and then gradually decrease as pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge internal bladder of tank during this
procedure.
6) Repeat step #4 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional pumping produces no more water)
7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5 & 10psi is sufficient)
8) Turn off RO faucet.
9) Replace cap on valve stem and reposition tank in upright position.
10) Open cold water feed valve.*
11) System water is useable immediately, however, tank will take 3-4 hrs to completely refill.
