Question about Water Filters & Coolers
A months ago, we changed the two filters out and all was fine - then about 10 days ago, the pressure became less and finally there was no more water in the tank. Do you have any idea where we need to begin looking for the problem? Thank You, Lisa email@example.com

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.
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
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.

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)
