Culliagan aqua-cleer drinking water sytem: under sink install
I need to know where the all the hoses are to be installed on the system serial #AC15100560 models H-30S-R, H-30 PRV-C. The hoses were all removed and I want to put it back together if possible... I have all the hoses, there are 2 filters and a pressure tank? this is fed up to a small tap at the kitchen sink. Thank you for your asstistance.. TC, AB, Canada

When you put air in the tank did you make sure all the water was out of tank? In a three gallon tank there should be 7 lbs of air, 10 gallon 10 lbs of air. There can be many reasons for no water in tank. 1. Bad bladder in holding tank. No back pressure on membrane (all water going to drain) 2. Faulty membrane (all the water going to drain) 3. Bad capillary tube (all the water going to drain) 4. Plugged check valve at top of membrane (no water) 5. Faulty water feed valve (piercing valve) 6. Fines from post carbon filter have plugged up the manifold (head) of RO unit. 7. Bad valve on RO tank 8. Plugged drain line RJ
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. RJ
Absolutely! This is a common problem when filters have not been changed at regular intervals, improper method of changing filters, contaminating the housings and filters introduces bacteria into the system and there is no better place for it to live and prosper. Any drinking water system needs regular sanitizing to prevent the buildup of bacteria. If the drain is not properly plumbed in with an air gap, cross contamination can occur from the the DWV line also. This system is no longer safe to drink from. The good news is it can be sanitized and filters replaced to get you back in business. www.softenerparts.com sells a sanitizing solution for RO systems and the filters you need also. RJ
If you have not changed the other filters then they need to be changed also. The system should be sanitized before you re-install the filters. The Membrane goes in with the large rubber seal at top of filter housing. Place inside the head of module until it seats and reinstall housing over it. 1. Drain the tank completely 2. Take all the filters out 3. Add 1/4 tsp household bleach to each housing, turn water back on to fill housings, let it sit for 15 minutes. 4. Flush the bleach out completely. 5. Re-install filters 6. Flush/empty the storage tank 2 x before using water. RJ
Make sure all the lines are hooked up correctly. It is going to take 3-8 hours to fill a 3 gallon RO storage tank. It depends on the capacity of the membrane (IE: 14, 20, 30, 50 or 75 gpd). It also depends on the TDS of the water. Water that has high TDS 500+ppm will take longer to produce product water than TDS of 100ppm. Check the pressure in the RO tank. When empty (In a 3 gallon tank) there should be 7psi pressure. A ten gallon tank takes 10psi. If it needs air you can use a bicycle pump to add appropriate air. Make sure the tank valve is turned off when adding air. Do not use the RO faucet for several hours to allow tank to fill up. Also you should dump the first couple tanks of RO water to make sure any carbon fines are rinsed out. RJ
You are getting water feeding back to the kitchen faucet from the filter system. A check valve needs to be installed on the line feeding the drinking water system to prevent this. Excess pressure may also be causing these problems. An in-line flow restrictor may alleviate the dripping. RJ
The number you gave is likely a serial number, so I am unsure as to which Culligan RO system you have. I have included a link below to a page with several different system manuals, many of which are Culligan. http://www.freshwatersystems.com/t-manuals.aspx
